SAP News Overview for January 2024

Hunkemöller International chooses SAP 

Hunkemöller International B.V., a new and rapidly growing European lingerie brand, has chosen the RISE with SAP solution. In this way, the company can provide its customers with a personalized experience and meet diverse needs.

Today the company has more than 850 retail stores and 15 online stores in 23 countries, so Hunkemöller needed a technology infrastructure that could meet the company’s new and existing needs. The implementation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition will be the first and one of the most important stages for the company on the path of digital transformation.

Collaboration with Sky Computing Lab 

SAP has decided to collaborate with the Sky Computing Lab at the University of California (UC) Berkeley. SAP wants to support the university’s research into interconnected cloud technologies in the context of artificial intelligence (AI). In turn, the developments of the University of California at Berkeley can help SAP with the implementation of strategies in the field of artificial intelligence, which the company is currently actively implementing in the development and operation of hundreds of applications.

“There’s no technology advancing faster than AI,” said SAP Chief AI Officer Philipp Herzig. “While the progress on foundation models is impressive, there is a lot to learn and shape on the AI stack on top, in particular for designing and scaling distributed cloud applications in multi-cloud environments or to build AI agents in combination with large language models. The Sky Computing Lab at UC Berkeley conducts very relevant research in this field, and the frameworks that are being built look very promising.”

New managed offering with SAP Learning Hub

It was recently reported that SAP is planning to launch a new premium managed offering with SAP Learning Hub, as well as an expanded certification program. One of these certifications will be the new role-based certification for SAP S/4HANA Cloud Implementation Consultants.

“The pace of change and the talent shortage call for a new approach to identifying future-focused skills and roles. Instead of focusing on traditional aspects like degrees, job histories and titles, professional competencies become more important,” says Andre Bechtold, senior vice president and head of solution and innovation experience at SAP. “By transitioning to role-based certifications that focus on core skills and competencies, the skillset of a learner becomes more valuable and gains sustainability and more relevance for longer periods of time.”
