SAP S/4HANA is the latest ERP system from SAP SE. Using SAP S/4HANA as digital core enables companies to transform to an “Intelligent Enterprise”. The maintenance period for SAP ERP 6.0, which is the commonly used system in the Life Sciences Industry nowadays, will expire per end of 2025. Up to then, all affected companies will have to move to SAP S/4HANA as their new ERP system. On top of that, most of the customers must change the underlying database (if not already done), because SAP S/4HANA requires the in-memory database SAP HANA. In addition, SAP provides a completely new user interface. The well-known (but not necessarily loved) SAPGUI interface will be replaced with the SAP Fiori launchpad hosting tiles for running apps.
Will all these changes have an impact on the GMP compliance of SAP?
