SAP and Microsoft Look to Jointly Evolve SAP S/4HANA Cloud with Teams

SAP and Microsoft announced a partnership to take collaboration in SAP S/4HANA Cloud to the next level with the integration of Microsoft Teams.

The shift to a hybrid working model in most companies makes collaboration tools and business process efficiency more critical than ever before. Tools that support communication and remote work help build a clear process around collaboration.

Business users can manage their daily activities in the work environment that is most convenient to them, supported by collaborative enterprise resource planning (ERP) features in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, according to the vendor.

With the latest SAP S/4HANA Cloud update, the company released the preview of a collaborative ERP feature that allows business users in SAP S/4HANA Cloud to share links to live business data in Microsoft Teams chats.

By minimizing context switching between different applications—for example, downloading reports in Microsoft Excel and sending them around via mail—people can get more done in less time and with fewer errors, according to the vendors.

Both companies are enabling business users of SAP S/4HANA Cloud to share their most relevant business data using Adaptive Card-based Loop components in Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Outlook.

The data in Loop components is always live and up to date, allowing users to take action and complete tasks while in the flow of their work. Users will also be able to embed SAP Fiori elements-based apps as tabs in Microsoft Teams to collaborate.

To access the new collaboration features as they are released, including share as Teams tab and share as Adaptive Card-based Loop components, join the Early Adopter Care program for Microsoft Integration in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

With this next-level ERP collaboration, SAP S/4HANA Cloud understands this need to jointly determine the future of work and enable a frictionless enterprise, according to SAP.
