The SAP Business Suite software is an integrated set of products and applications that support many essential business processes that are common to large and mid-size organizations. The foundation of the Suite is the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application, and modules are supplied for customer relationship management (CRM), supplier relationship management (SRM), product lifecycle management (PLM) and supply chain management (SCM). The software provides a range of preconfigured processes that must be done repeatedly in the running of enterprises.
SAP S/4HANA is SAP’s next generation business suite, designed to replace SAP ECC/ERP with a simplified tool optimized for SAP HANA. SAP has publicly announced they will discontinue support for SAP Business Suite on Windows and Unix by 2025 which means existing customers will need to migrate to a Linux-based platform.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for SAP Applications features an SAP system Installation Wizard, automated recovery for SAP HANA systems and other features that support a smooth transition to SAP S/4HANA.
