Ever expanding its services to beat the cutting edge, Influential Software is proud to announce a dedicated site for S/4HANA Cloud ERP services and solutions.

The newly launched showcases our expertise in this rapidly developing area, from migration to the cloud and on-premise solutions.

Since SAP announced that it would discontinue support for SAP© ECC in 2025, the window for cloud-migration is growing narrower by the year. Many of our clients are waking up to the necessity of moving now rather than later. Our advice is, don’t leave it too late!

The Latest and Greatest SAP Offering

S/4HANA brings a host of benefits to businesses, connecting all your processes and providing live information and insights. More than just an upgrade, the power of HANA has given S/4 the freedom to totally rebuild its applications. Here are a few of the major advantages that arrived with SAP Business Suite 4:

  • use planning, execution, prediction, and simulation to study any kind of insight from any type of data across your business, all in real time
  • connect to social and business networks, devices, people, and the Internet of Things
  • gain the agility to transform your business processes and achieve new levels of efficiency

If these benefits seem like a manifesto for digital transformation, then that is no coincidence. SAP S4/HANA Cloud ERP is the face of the future in a world where IT is central to business success.

Last Call for the Transformation Express

For Influential Software, digital transformation is more than a buzzword. Today’s customers demand services that are fast, personalised, and always available. The essence of digital transformation is finding the right IT infrastructure to meet that demand.

SAP’s roadmap for 2025 and beyond is designed to simplify your infrastructure. They do this by focusing on one digital core, their SAP HANA in-memory database. A second big change is SAP’s decision to go open-source with Linux. Our SAP team specialises in designing secure, high-performance, and highly available Linux data centres.

“To Cloud or Not to Cloud?”

“That is the migration,” as Shakespeare may have written. In fact, there are many more than two options. From S4/HANA Private Cloud and SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud SaaS to On-Premise S/4HANA ERP and sub-categories within these, S/4HANA can adapt to a range of configurations to suit your business. Among these options, it can be a challenge for businesses to balance the factors of cost, connectivity, agility, and governance. Thankfully, SAP-certified S4 HANA Consultancy services are on hand to assess your requirements and define the best solution for you.

Posted on Wednesday 21st February 2018 4:31


Influential are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Microsoft migration specialists Metalogix, further enhancing our Microsoft portfolio and ensuring our clients an array of cutting edge SharePoint and Office 365 solutions and expertise.

Metalogix: Move, Manage, and Protect SharePoint and Office 365

Metalogix solutions move, manage and protect content that lives within and around Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Office 365. This ensures your business has the freedom to collaborate and removes the risk of information loss. No matter what platform your business is using, on-premises or in the cloud.

Over the last 15 years Metalogix has grown into a global brand, recently bringing its solutions under the banner of Quest. From the start, Metalogix has defined not only the future of SharePoint and Office 365 management but also how organisations collaborate in complex environments. The company has learned a lot along the way, having seen first hand the struggles businesses have constantly moving content across collaborative environments, locally and in the cloud. How the battle between human resources, technical and business priorities, and even networking logistics, can push the limits of project management and delivery.

As a result Metalogix have focused on developing products and solutions that remove the need for deeper human interactions without compromise on speed. Influential-Metalogix solutions bring flexibility and scalability to project planning and delivery, enabling even a single administrator to accomplish more during migrations.

From company intranets to secure document management systems, on premise and in the cloud, they continue to be at the cutting edge of scalable enterprise solutions and have helped make Microsoft current world leaders in this field.

However, it’s not always straightforward for Enterprises to fully leverage Microsoft products. It’s here where trusted Microsoft partners, with vast industry knowledge and decades of experience, can ensure your business gets the full value. This is particularly true of SharePoint and Office 365 environments and migration.

As well as vast experience, Metalogix brings to Influential SharePoint clients their range of bespoke applications including:

  • Content Matrix – the industry’s most powerful SharePoint and Office 365 migration solution
  • ControlPoint – security, permissions, and administration for SharePoint
