Fashion companies across the globe, regardless of size or geography are all facing the same economic headwinds - disruption in the form of competitive threats and new opportunities coming at an unprecedented pace. The answer for meeting these challenges is innovation - both in terms of business as well as the underlying technology that enables those processes.
Announced last week at ASUG Apparel Fashion and Footwear Fall meeting, SAP S/4HANA Fashion (SAP S/4HANA 1709) provides significant business innovation for fashion companies - merging wholesale and retail processes onto a real-time in-memory platform to drive retail opportunity in key areas such as omnichannel, merchandise management, in-store commerce and inventory visibility. S/4HANA Fashion simplifies the underlying architecture, modernizes the user interface, and sets the stage for new functionality and processes – in addition to being the launching point for new business opportunities.
We take a closer look at how the new solution and its functional innovations and enhancements help fashion brands transition to the digital age.
