Fast Value – the cbs way.

In the today’s fast-moving world, being quick, efficient, and able to grow easily is critical. Things are always changing, and companies need to adopt change quickly to keep up. This is where cbs really stands out. We are leading the way in shaping the future of business by using SAP’s newest technology and a unique approach centered around SPEED, VALUE and SCALE.

Businesses must reshape their operations to be competitive and flexible – accompanied by a change in the corresponding enterprise architecture. ERP systems like SAP are fundamental in this shift, serving as the backbone of many organizations. Nevertheless, clients continue to struggle with justifying the move to SAP S/4HANA. A practical starting point is leveraging the capabilities of SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). This method allows for a low-cost, quick initiation of the transition.

Transformation programs to S/4 are often planned over several years. Let’s not kid ourselves, though – with the transition to S/4, you get a new system with some new features, but that doesn’t automatically make you innovative! With SAP BTP, you can start immediately.

Speed – Accelerating Digital Transformation

Waiting for a complete transition to SAP S/4HANA is no longer acceptable to innovate and stay competitive. With the availability of SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) on ECC, businesses can kickstart their innovation journey without the need to fully commit to S/4HANA from the outset. This agile approach allows companies to begin immediately, leveraging the existing ECC infrastructure.

By adopting a sprint-based delivery methodology, organizations can initiate projects on ECC with short cycles, typically lasting 2-3 weeks. This rapid iteration cycles enables teams to swiftly engage with business stakeholders, build mock-ups, deploy solutions, and refine them based on feedback.

The key is to foster continuous dialogue with the business, understanding their needs and preferences, and iterating quickly to deliver value in short bursts. This approach ensures that innovation is not delayed by the complexities of a full-scale S/4HANA migration but rather embraced through incremental improvements and enhancements. An additional advantage of this approach is that it gives you direct business buy-in. This means that it is no longer just an IT project, but that you have the right stakeholders from the business on board.

How do we manage that? The easiest examples are through simplified user interfaces. Navigating complex systems becomes a breeze. Say goodbye to cluttered screens and convoluted menus. Providing solutions with intuitive design puts the most important tools right at your fingertips, ensuring a seamless user experience for both beginners and experts alike.

But we don’t stop there. We understand that time is valuable, which is why we think of automation solutions to eliminate tedious manual processes. Whether it’s data entry, file organization, or task delegation, our automated systems will handle the heavy lifting, allowing you to focus on what truly matters—your core objectives.

Imagine this scenario: You receive a stack of handwritten forms or printed documents. In the old days, you´d spend hours manually transcribing each piece of information into your system, prone to errors and inefficiencies. But not anymore. With cheap (and mature) OCR or AI services, simply scan those documents, and the system does the rest. No more manual typing, no more data entry errors—just seamless automation at your fingertips. Sounds like a big project? Far from it. These features can be delivered in a typical sprint cycle!

In summary, the message is clear: SPEED and agility are paramount. There’s no need to wait for S/4HANA to innovate. Start now on ECC, leveraging the capabilities of SAP BTP, and embrace an agile mindset to drive continuous improvement and innovation within your organization.
