Difference Between ECC To S/4 HANA

Difference Between ECC To SAP S/4 HANA

The latest technology innovations from ERP include HANA, S/4 HANA, BW/4 HANA, etc. This article from Global Coach IT Academy Hyderabad will try to clear the air between ECC and S/4 HANA.


In the nutshell - HANA is a memory database, while the S/4HANA is an application that is designed to run on the HANA database. HANA acts as a focus for all ERP’s products strategy which serves as a base for recent technology.


What Is HANA


HANA (High-Performance Analytic Appliance) is an application that uses an in-memory computing database technology that allows the system to process massive amounts of real-time data in a very limited time. This helps businesses to react more quickly to changing conditions, providing significant strategic benefits. HANA’s core feature is an innovative and column-based Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), which is used to store, redeem and process data on core business activities. 


HANA reduces the memory usage factor and improves performance as it uses column-oriented storage which combines Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) and Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), as the speed of them will drastically change with the design of HANA.


What Is S/4HANA


S/4HANA replaces ERP business suites with an analyzed tool called HANA.


It reconstructs its ERP solution (ECC) from the ground to take the advantage of HANA’s performance. S/4HANA is the shorter version of Business Suite for HANA, which is the fourth version of the ERP business suite.


The next-generation business suite of ERP is S/4HANA which is made in a simplified way specifically to work with HANA and to replace the ECC/ERP. Simplification of data is done into a single table by replacing the core tables, this can be achieved.


Some Differences Between ECC To S/4 HANA:


  • S/4 HANA can only run on the HANA database, whereas ECC can run on multiple databases like Oracle, DB2, etc.

  • In S/4 HANA, Customer & Vendor are integrated as a “Business Partner” which can be termed as (CVI - Customer Vendor Integration).

  • HANA Database is speed from fewer distinct values and parallel processing as it is column-based in S/4HANA.

  • In S/4HANA only line item tables are used rather than summary tables and index tables.

  • Within the S/4HANA environment, BW and BPC can be embedded
