SAP S/4HANA
In traditional SAP applications, all the data is stored at the database level and calculations are performed. The results are displayed at the application layer. Most of the query processing time involves calculations and aggregations. It is recommended that all application logic should be pushed at the database level to improve the performance of query execution.
SAP HANA based applications provide best application performance by pushing the execution into the database as possible. All the data is stored in an in-memory database so the reading data is much faster as compared to a conventional database.
SAP HANA supports real-time data replication and hence removes unnecessary latency and complexity of data load.
SAP S/4HANA is based on the native HANA platform to support simplified data models, no aggregates, and no indices. It has an integrated Fiori-based user interface and role-based access for different purposes.

Organizational Management in SAP S/4HANA
