A new ERP tool  is unveiled!
Bangalore, February  13, 2015:  Five years after launching its flagship in-memory, column oriented relational data base  management  platform, HANA,  SAP has completely remade the solution for a new  enterprise environment,  where clients need to work seamlessly across multiple screens -- PC, tablet and  mobile phone.
SAP S/4 HANA as it is called  offers  completely new and user friendly interfaces on multiple screens, even while it retains its core in-memory features.
While the development of SAP S/4 HANA was a  collaborative project  across multiple developmenrt centres,  the Bangalore-based SAP Labs India contributed significantly to the  core architecture,  the Fiori user  interfaces,   as welll as to the applications and platform for S/4 HANA.

'With SAP S/4HANA, the Internet of Things and Big Data
are accessible to any business. Connect people, devices
and business networks in real time to create new business
models and deliver more value to customers.'
