Driving the Right Path in your S/4HANA Transformation Journey


An ever-evolving competitive landscape. Unprecedented supply chain disruptions. Changing customer expectations. And a global push towards sustainable mobility. Automakers are up against multiple challenges. And with the next challenge always looming, the choice is simple: adapt or get disrupted.

On one hand, your automotive shopfloor must be a factory of the future while your entire supply chain must have a low carbon footprint. You need to build an agile, responsive supply chain that adapts to the dynamics of procurement, distribution and logistics. On the other hand, you need to build a data and AI-first enterprise while also equipping yourself for seamless transition into B2B2C, D2C, Servitization and other business models.

In the face of these paradigm shifts, how can you refresh your core and usher in the future of mobility with ease?
How well is your organization positioned to adjust for the future given the constrains of the present?
