SAP S/4HANA
for Fashion and Vertical Business





SAP has put real-time business within reach of fashion retailers with the introduction of SAP S/4HANA for Fashion and Vertical Business. This next-generation platform unifies the lightning-fast analytics of SAP HANA with transactions, enabling fashion retailers to gather and process data across wholesale, retail and manufacturing, while simultaneously applying it to consecutive business process - all in real time.

Below, we’ll go over many SAP S4HANA Fashion Use Cases so that you’ll be able to get a clearer picture as to why incorporating a real-time digital core for fashion is the best way forward. Here's your roadmap for the rest of this guide. As we move along, we’ll stop off at each point to dig in a bit deeper.

SAP S/4HANA: The Digital Core for the Fashion Industry

Business now have come to an understanding that an excess of complexity in business operations and IT systems cause considerable limitations in business performance.





Furthermore, according to SAP:

  • 70% of the effort in an analytics project is dedicated to preparing the data for analysis

  • 67% of retail executives say employee satisfaction has been harmed due to the cost of complexity

  • 10.2% of profits are lost by the top 200 global companies due to hidden costs of complexity

However, as some are finding out the hard way, overcoming complexity in fashion is not a "to-do" item that can easily be checked off. Rather, it involves a strategic company-wide approach with a singular goal: drive digital transformation in fashion by leveraging a robust digital foundation that places simplicity at the core of the business. 

Let's look at it this way. Information is one of the most valuable assets of any fashion business. Data management and analysis of data can set a business apart from its competitors. But information and analytics go even deeper when all data can be gathered, processed, and interpreted with speed and agility. When it is in direct relation to business processes — it is at its most powerful.

Ask a CIO which technologies a company must have to “digitally transform” the organization, and you’ll probably hear about internet of things (IoT) or machine learning. But these technologies can’t excel on the traditional, monolithic IT landscape or legacy ERP data structures. 

This is where a digital core comes in. A digital core is crucial to a digital tranformation initiative, designed to offer stability and long-term reliability for core enterprise processes with a single source of truth. This solid foundation gives you a higher degree of flexibility to adapt and innovate quickly to new opportunities and challenges, such as new business models, new regulations and business events such as mergers or acquisitions.

“A digital core brings together transactional processes and analytics on a single platform to deliver real-time business across processes, with immediate and tangible benefits.”

For fashion companies, this means leveraging a platform that connects across all sales channels - wholesale, retail, manufacturing and e-commerce, empowering decision-making and giving you a significant advantage in today’s digital economy. 

Today, the most successful retailers are actively using a digital core to centralize data and establish a single source of truth with an enterprise-wide digital transformation initiative as seen below.

However, it is important to note that moving to digitally-connected core is not a small, incremental change. Enterprises that treat it as such will fail to succeed.

As you continue reading, you will realize that building a digital business brings about fundamental changes, with new business models that involve major shifts in how an enterprise operates and interacts. The key to thrive and survive in the digital era is managing data, but this cannot be sustained efficiently without a revamped digital core that includes stable and reliable core ERP processes.

SAP S/4HANA is designed to deliver on this promise, by creating a functioning digitalization-friendly IT environment. Within this landscape, all its applications are interconnected, making it possible to access and use detailed data from anywhere within the company in real time without information loss. How does a digital core on SAP S/4HANA with a true single source of truth help?

  • Speed: Perform real-time planning, execution, reporting, and analytics based on live data

  • Agility: Access real-time business insights on any device, anytime, anywhere

  • Simplicity: Deal with both transactional and analytical workloads simplifying your IT landscape

  • Cost efficiency: Reduce TCO by combining analytics and transactions

  • Innovation: Unlock new growth opportunities by rethinking business processes and enabling the business platform for mobile devices

 

Introduction to SAP S/4HANA
for Fashion and Vertical Business

Now that you know that large, monolithic ERP suites are not conducive to the agility required for digital business, let's take a closer look at what is SAP S/4HANA for Fashion and drill down to how it ticks all the checkboxes in delivering a digital core that effectively powers operations, modernizes the operational core and help retailers meet the demands of omnichannel retailing. 

Designed to place real-time business within reach of fashion companies, SAP S/4HANA Fashion is built to combat complexity, streamline digital transformation, and provide the ultimate simplicity by merging all fashion processes –wholesale, retail, manufacturing and e-commerce - onto a single platform.

Supporting fashion core processes end-to-end, from master data to supply assignment, the redesigned business suite provides previously unavailable agility and flexibility, one that’s designed to support innovative digital business initiatives. Fashion companies are able to reinvent their business from front office to back office, gain insights into operational data, and empower their employees with contextual, real-time information for faster and better decision-making.

What does SAP S/4HANA mean for fashion businesses? Businesses are able to interpret information flowing in and out of the business - and take their processes digital based on a single source of information that interconnects all aspects of the value chain in real-time. 

For example, many companies sell products according to the season. The main objective is to avoid having stock left-over at the end of the season. From planning, procurement, sales, online and offline channels through to coordinated clearance sale campaigns, vertical integration on SAP S/4HANA for Fashion ensures that these processes are fully harmonized, whether the products are being sold in a department store or in a flagship store. 

This entirely new business suite runs on the SAP HANA in-memory database technology to give end users real-time decision support by moving away from the transactional ERP system and becoming - the digital core – the nerve center of your entire fashion enterprise. 

  • Developed natively on the SAP HANA® platform for real-time data processing and analytics - coupled with best practice fashion functionality for a live understanding of customers, inventory, and sales

  • Offers global inventory visibility, common sourcing, buying and manufacturing with capabilities for stock segmentation across channels

  • Delivers omnichannel supply assignment and fulfillment based on real-time sales and inventory information to keep up with customers’ expectations acrosss sales channels

  • “Industry to core” – one platform that unites various industry solutions for potential synergies and cross-scenarios

  • Single set of master data that dramatically simplifies processes in key areas such as inventory mangement and stock valuation – no more batch processing required.

  • Easily connect to people, devices, and business networks to deliver new value to their customers on any channel – the Internet of Things and Big Data become accessible to any business.

  • Create a truly Live Business: immediate insights to act in the moment, intelligent processes that go beyond automation to predictive suggestion, complete integration – not only between your departments, but different verticals.

  • Gain any insight on any data from anywhere in real-time: planning, execution, prediction, and simulation – all decisions can be made on the fly with the highest level of granularity for faster business impact.

  • Dramatically simplify the landscape and reduce TCO

  • Leverage a simple and role-based user experience based on modern design principles across all functional areas, allowing new ways of working for business users, minimizing training efforts and increasing productivity.

The value from SAP S/4HANA Fashion Digital Core is delivered through the simplification of the user experience, architecture, and business processes to better analyze trends, simulate the outcomes of strategic options, and optimize planning, so fashion companies have the ability to create unique opportunities to reinvent business models and drive new revenues and profits.

Already, we are beginning to see a mass exodus from monolithic, legacy platforms to a more agile and robust one like SAP S/4HANA; a purpose built system for the digital age. The movement is happening across the board, from European mega brands to Latin American startup e-tailers looking to expand globally. 

The way forward is to certainly move away from fragmented or home-grown, custom solutions and make the move to SAP S/4HANA for Fashion because:

  • It is much more expensive to build and deploy a custom application suite than to implement standardized ERP platform such as SAP S/4HANA for Fashion

  • Large scale internal development projects typically take much longer to deliver value to the business, whereas rapid deployment solutions built for SAP S/4HANA for Fashion accelerates the implementation timeline with a pre-configured template

  • It becomes very difficult to update and extend the custom application to respond to market trends, customer expectations, management requests, and changes in technology. SAP S/4HANA for Fashion is designed to leverage latest technologies to connect your workforce, suppliers, consumers and the internet of things in real time to capture every opportunity and to fuel your channel-less execution by capturing every customer demand signal to respond in real time

Fashion brands are now scoring quick wins within a broader, enterprise-wide program that utilizes rapid deployments and a highly user-friendly design, such as SAP S/4HANA. To better understand the benefits, we break down how SAP S/4HANA Fashion adressess common pain-points faced by fashion companies in the chapter below.

Why move to S/4HANA Fashion: Scope, Functionality and Benefits

It is given that fashion companies must be ready to service their customers at any given moment with the right information, the right product, in the right location, and at the right price. The capabilities delivered with SAP S/4HANA for fashion and vertical business and its many integration points into the complementing retail solutions help ensure fashion companies deliver on this promise smoothly and efficiently across the entire customer engagement lifecycle. Let's take a look at how this is possible with an overview of SAP S/4HANA benefits, functionalities and scope

Duplication of Effort / Lack of Integration

Pain-Points

Solution on SAP S/4HANA

Pain-Points
  • Lack of integration across multiple systems results in extra work, requiring manual processing and maintenance of data in Excel
  • Different Data Models, Data Dictionaries (Different Languages) and duplicate data drives lowers reliability of any given data set
  • Data latency result in wider margins of error, delays, bottlenecks e.g. inability to replenish stocks fast enough to meet real-time demand across channels
Solution on SAP S/4HANA
  • Work with larger data sets in one system - merging Retail, Manufacturing and Wholesale data in a single ERP, with tight systemic integration to related systems, such as CRM, PLM, etc.
  • Removes data discrepancies, reduces data footprint and eliminates redundant data entry / processing tasks, drastically lowering data manipulation errors
  • Enterprise wide access to a single source of truth for decision making in real-time

Manual / Non-Systemic Processing

Pain-Points

Solution on SAP S/4HANA

Pain-Points
  • Manual “workarounds” are often needed in an attempt to merge key data to conduct daily business activities
  • Merchandising decisions often based on intuition, rather than accurate data
  • Data issues, latency, inconsistencies, or problems feeding information across systems results in re-work, re-processing, or overrides
Solution on SAP S/4HANA
  • Fact-based, timely decision-making with accurate data readily available without replication or redundancy
  • Improved system capabilities reduce the need for reliance on external resources
  • Limited workarounds or system customization; use of supported extensions for “non-standard” functionality

Season Management

Pain-Points

Solution on SAP S/4HANA

Pain-Points
  • Master data management does not consider seasonal windows
  • Provides limited support for seasonal handling, informed decision-making, or analysis of which products or styles perform best
Solution on SAP S/4HANA
  • New seasonality concepts drive all processes of anarticle along its lifecycle,from master-data creation to sales
  • Distribution curves help fashion and seasonal businesses achieve the right mix of stylesto maximize revenue opportunity
  • Control logistical processes, such as sales and purchasing, based on the parameters maintained for different seasons

Inventory Management

Pain-Points

Solution on SAP S/4HANA

Pain-Points
  • Stock information is spread across numerous tables, channels, and locations and is difficult to consolidate across slow, non transparent processes that requires high manual work and cumbersome interactions between applications
  • Stock is available for consumption from all consuming locations, regardless of priorities
  • Mission-critical core processes, such as allocation processes or calculation of available-to-promise (ATP) quantities, can be run only at night
Solution on SAP S/4HANA
  • Inventory information is stored in general journal tables for simple and live stock reporting
  • With stock protection, companies can reserve stock for high-priority channels
  • Allocation processes (supply assignment) and ATP runs are accelerated significantly by using in-memory computing technology

Supply Chain Planning

Pain-Points

Solution on SAP S/4HANA

Pain-Points
  • Disparate planning for individual channels
  • Separate sourcing departments per channe
  • Long and overnight batch run processes and lack of overall inventory visibility results in inefficient planning and permanent latency in inventory turnover reporting
  • Inflexibility to include real-time, changing demands in the planning run leads to outdated and inaccurate planning
Solution on SAP S/4HANA
  • Single system for planning and allocation with a joint purchasing process that handles higher order quantities under better ordering conditions with the suppliers
  • Unified demand insights and forecasts across functional areas
  • Increased flexibility in stock usage - such as shifting leftover stock between channels when necessary, thereby reduced out-of-stock situations and increasing profitability


Delving Deeper: SAP S/4HANA Fashion Use Cases

Moving to SAP S/4HANA, may seem complicated, but the benefits of speed, flexibility and cost savings are clear. As a close collaborator on the development of the SAP S/4HANA for Fashion and Vertical Business, attune was heavily involved in the acceptance testing of the product. As a result, we often get the question about the motivation for SAP S/4HANA for Fashion, and while the value is clear – we thought it is best explained via concrete SAP S/4HANA use cases. Below we take a look at 3 specific scenarios:

01. Stock Protection

Vertical fashion companies often sell through a multitude of channels. However, not all the orders are placed at the same time. In such cases, fashion companies must prioritize customers, channels or markets, to ensure that the most important customers are served first.

Stock protection helps companies achieve this goal by protecting inventory for high priority demand even if important sales orders are received late and low priority orders precede them.

On SAP S/4HANA for Fashion, stock protection works by prioritizing demand plans during the sales cycle. Two levels of stock protection can be implemented:

  • Horizontal Stock Protection: protect channels from cannibalizing each other in order to keep the possibility of balancing stock for a more profitable outcome.

  • Vertical Stock Protection: protects stock for high priority channels so that other channels cannot consume or poach its stock.

02. Backorder Processing

In traditional systems, conventional Available-to-Promise (ATP) is a function provided to help fashion businesses confirm order delivery dates based on actual supply chain and manufacturing resources. ATP provides this confirmation by analyzing data like warehouse stock, planned orders and sales orders to ensure that future orders do not disrupt confirmed orders.

Although the approach was easy to use, the increased complexity in today’s digital world requires more complex mechanisms, leaving conventional ATP insufficient. For example, availability checks were done on a first come first serve approach, which averted businesses from meeting their strategic priorities.

To cope with all these changes, Advanced Available-to-Promise (aATP) on SAP S/4HANA Fashion was introduced to address the challenge of working in a dynamic and moving environment, allowing fashion companies to react to changes in the supply chain and help manage the demand and supply intelligently by ensuring optimal assignment of supply.

As seen in the above video, not reacting to the changed availability situation can result in confirmed quantities exceeding available quantities. 

With the newly revamped Back Order Processing (BOP) on SAP S/4HANA, fashion companies can check stock availability when the demand or supply situation in the order fulfillment process has changed and reconfirm if previously calculated confirmations for sales orders or stock transport orders are still realistic.

Back Order Processing on SAP S/4HANA for Fashion is done using five different predefined confirmation strategies (business rules) to minimize losses due to inventory stock-outs, protect customer interests and ensure strategic customers always get served.

  • WIN: Shall be fully confirmed in time (the most important customer orders)

  • GAIN: Shall keep the confirmations and should gain if possible

  • REDISTRIBUTE: Might gain, might lose (orders that can lose confirmations)

  • FILL: Shall not gain anything, should keep confirmation, but may also lose (non-priority customer orders)

  • LOSE: Shall lose all confirmations (orders under credit block)

E.g. a last-minute customer order is created for a very strategic customer. However, the stock has already been committed to another customer, belonging to a lower confirmation hierarchy, leaving no stock available for the priority customer. After executing the back order processing, stock previously committed to sales orders with customers classified as REDISTRIBUTE, FILL and LOSE has shifted to the customer classified as WIN.

03. Flexible Fulfillment and Order Orchestration

When orders reach a fashion company through multiple channels, it places an enormous burden on the business to effectively manage inventory and conduct simultaneous logistical operations through various channels.

For fashion brands with legacy systems, this burden becomes two-fold because each channel is designed in isolation from the requirements and processes of each other, which means no system provides true inventory visibility across channels in real-time. This results in delays and errors – which ultimately leads to customer dissatisfaction.

To overcome this challenge, majority of brands have resorted to developing specialized software to achieve a modest degree of visibility and control over processes across channels. However, this does little to address the challenge of achieving true inventory visibility and to maintain that visibility on a real-time or near real-time basis.

However, as profitable order management becomes critical to a fashion business, it becomes paramount to overcome challenges that arise from inefficient and disconnected processes that heavily impact profit margins and customer experiences to a degree that no retailer can afford.

A real-time unique view of inventory is the starting attribute that retailers need to put in place to achieve a more efficient and innovation-ready order orchestration and the underlying data model on SAP S/4HANA helps build this single view by connecting front-office with back office, digital channels with brick and mortar and transactional systems with consuming applications. This way, fashion companies are able to fulfill demand for their products from anywhere, thereby reducing stock-outs and missed revenue opportunities.

In the below SAP S/4HANA for Fashion omnichannel scenario, we take a look at how fashion companies can leverage ‘Save the Sale’ initiatives to confront an out-of-stock situation in-store.

By leveraging a single pool of inventory, fashion companies can provide inventory availability to sales associates. This way, in instances of OOS, associates are able view item avaliability at nearby stores and source intelligently from another store to fulfill in-store customer orders for out-of-stock products.

Parting Words: Why act now

Digital transformation has moved on from its initial hype to being a business priority. The fashion and retail industries have been very susceptible to changes driven by technology, evidenced by regularly occurring store closures and bankruptcies of companies that were slow to adapt.

On the flipside, it also resulted in a gold rush-like frenzy to implement digital initiatives and projects. But as some are finding out the hard way, many of these projects end up as false starts - mired in the complexities and limitations of the previous generation of ERP systems. 

While the likes of IoT, AI and chatbots hold great potential in digitization programs, what most businesses are realizing is the need to have a core that brings it all applications together and facilitate organic extensions to new technologies. 

The sum of the real-world business scenarios discussed above showcase how SAP S/4HANA for Fashion offers an end-to-end solution for fashion companies to run live. These are not merely incremental improvements based on processes that have existed before, but transformational change delivered to each department, unlocking new value to the business. These examples show that by starting a business transformation project renewing the ERP core with SAP S/4HANA – a company can safely plan for a significant transformation of its business while minimizing the risk.
