Companies in the Australia/NZ mid-market (companies with a turnover of $50 million to $500 million) are competing hard to grow at scale – exploring new geographies, creating additional product portfolios and looking for previously untapped channels to market. The landscape in Australia/NZ is highly competitive as businesses compete in a world with ever-changing challenges:

  • Supply chain issues
  • Cyber security risks
  • Increased and changing funding costs
  • Work-from-home and hybrid work arrangements
  • Increased competition
  • Increased and rapidly changing costs of raw materials
  • Labour cost increases

Competing in a world where access to information, analytics, digital transformation and AI are creating opportunities to grow at scale, mid-market companies must invest in technology as a key enabler. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions like SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud Edition are at the forefront of cloud innovation to create a platform for high growth by delivering:

  • A complete solution across the enterprise – functionality, technology, analytics, AI and process automation that was previously only available to larger businesses with big IT teams and large budgets is now available to mid-market and smaller businesses. Cloud technology together with industry-leading practices has brought about the SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud Edition. Following A Fit to Standard implementation creates quick time to value with implementation timeframes measured in short time frames creating a competitive advantage. This level of functionality and technology available in the mid-market changes the game for high-growth businesses.
  • A structure for ERP project delivery and sustained growth – Grow with SAP – SAP provides the cloud infrastructure, native cloud ERP applications, continuous innovation, adoption accelerators and services to enable fast, accurate deployment of SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud. Community structures, help and learning are available for SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud to ensure a complete solution for mid-market customers that is deployed with fast, seamless user adoption – a key success factor when it comes to implementing cloud ERP solutions. Much more than providing a cloud-based ERP application, SAP is providing a collection of tools, infrastructure, learning enablement, community help and more to fully enable the customer journey into the cloud – from product selection (using the SAP Digital Discovery Assessment) to implementation, post-go-live support and continuous innovation in the cloud.
  • Quick time to value – using Grow with SAP, a fit to standard implementation, cloud mindset and industry-leading business processes allows for quick time to value.
  • Cloud infrastructure – using SAP cloud infrastructure means so much more than reducing infrastructure overhead and lowering the total cost of ownership. Think also about access to innovation, advances in artificial intelligence, low code and no code development environments (SAP Business Technology Platform), predictive cloud-based analytics (SAP Analytics Cloud) and the ability to add these technologies seamlessly into your solution stack as your business grows – new markets, new customers, new geographies.
  • User adoption – a critical success factor in all cloud ERP implementations and the success of delivery for cloud ERP is user adoption. User adoption refers to the ability for users to be able to adopt the new solution with confidence and excitement – new features, new workflows, new technology to automate tasks and streamline operations. Grow with SAP for SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud Edition delivers the required methodology, structure and support to help with user adoption and change management.
  • SAP Business Technology Platform – even in a fit to standard cloud ERP environment some customers will have integration, development and extensibility requirements.

  • SAP Analytics Cloud – predictive analytics, what-if scenarios, budgeting and planning and more. High-growth businesses need access to timely data for accurate decision-making. SAP Analytics Cloud is a complete solution for analytics and planning.
