ERP Migration to SAP S/4HANA – a Tactical Roadmap for Success

first_imgThe digital economy offers exciting new opportunities for businesses, but it also brings unprecedented IT challenges. Many IT departments struggle to derive fresh insights from the data they store in disparate ERP systems. SAP S/4HANA addresses those concerns by replacing and transforming complex systems to help organizations reimagine business processes and deliver real-time insights from data that’s always fresh.SAP S/4HANA is a real-time enterprise resource management suite for the digital business. It is built on SAP’s advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA, and offers a personalized, consumer-grade user experience with SAP Fiori, deployable in the cloud or on premises.While every company’s path to transforming IT for SAP S/4HANA is unique, most share some common objectives in sustaining SAP ERP deployments while migrating to SAP S/4HANA. These objectives include the need to:Consolidate, automate and simplify IT to lower infrastructure costs and increase the productivity of SAP administrators, database administrators (DBAs) and IT operations staff.Deploy SAP S/4HANA as part of the organization’s standard data-infrastructure design and architecture.Run SAP with the “personality” of web 2.0 applications, bringing greater agility with higher-value features, including self-service, orchestration and application-lifecycle management.Enable new business processes and analytics-driven insights for success in the digital economy.

Powered by Firework Although all sports activity have been halted all over the world due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, world sports has seen many charities and helping hands towards fighting the virus outbreak. Recently, La Liga elites FC Barcelona announced to sell the naming rights of their home turf, the famous Camp Nou, to raise money for fighting the COVID-19 crisis. And guess who is an eager customer? The infamous adult website Pornhub!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/Picture AllianceFollowing a tweet by ESPN FC on Barcelona’s decision, the official Twitter handle of the adult website ‘Pornhub ARIA’ are making a sassy hint at being the buyers of Camp Nou’s naming rights, and changing it to ‘Pornhub Stadium’.Advertisement The comments were flooded with netizens, who were on board with the new proposed name of the historic football ground.However, only time will tell if the bizarre proposal actually turns into reality, or the naming rights will go elsewhere.The decision was announced on Tuesday, along with a €300 million renovation plan of expanding the stadium capacity up to 105,000 seats, and other facilities.“We want to send a universal message: For the first time someone will have the opportunity to put their name on Camp Nou and the revenues will go to all of humanity, not just Barca,” Jordi Cardoner, the vice president of the club said on Tuesday.“The initiative arose in an emergency situation. We think that we have to have a very quick response, putting our crown jewel at the service,” Cardoner added.Spain has been one of the worst hit countries in the Coronavirus outbreak, with over 2,00,00 confirmed cases, and an alarming death toll of 21,282, third highest in the world.The money raised from selling the the stadium’s title rights will be donated to various charities in the country.Located in Carrer d’Arístides Maillol in Barcelona, Camp Nou, meaning ‘new ground’, has been the home stadium of the Blaugrana since 1957. With a capacity of capacity of 99,354, it is the largest stadium in Europe, and the third largest football stadium in the world.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Perils of Lockdown: Man Utd doctor reveals how players are getting hurt at home because of cooking!Ball, bat and a band: Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues show off with an SRK number!   Advertisementlast_img read more

Widespread Flu Making Many Miserable

first_imgBy Michele J. KuhnGot the flu? You aren’t alone.“Everybody’s been hit hard,” said Dr. Stephanie Reynolds, medical director at the Emergency Care Center at Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank. “We’re seeing 10 to 20 patients a day that are influenza positive with another 10 a day with the stomach, probable norovirus, and some poor souls are coming in with a combination of both … There’s really not a whole lot we can do for them.“The numbers in the emergency department are just unbelievable. They are higher numbers than we’ve seen in a decade,” she said.The flu bug that has hit the area hard reflects what is going on in much of the country. During the last week of December, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 41 states had widespread flu activity with all states east of the Mississippi River being impacted.The flu is being seen in offices, large and small, area schools and anywhere people congregate.During the past two weeks hospitals in the Meridian Health System, including Riverview, Bayshore Com­munity Hospital in Holmdel and Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, have been using flu swabs – used to diagnose influenza – in record numbers. While Meridian hospitals began seeing the first influenza patients of the season in November, the numbers increased rapidly the week before Christmas and have continued at a high rate.“From the week before Christmas through New Year’s, we saw more flu than we did the entire last year’s season,” Reynolds said.Symptoms of influenza include generalized body aches, a fever of 101 or 102 degrees, a headache and chills. Some experience nausea (but not with vomiting and diarrhea), others develop upper respiratory congestion, a runny nose and watery eyes.The patients who are diagnosed within the first 24 to 48 hours of their symptoms appearing can be given Tamiflu which can shorten the course of the virus but “it isn’t a cure,” Reynolds said. “We find with some people that it upsets their stomach so it’s a lose-lose situation with those people.”If the flu is not diagnosed at the start, the symptoms themselves are treated. Body aches are treated with acetaminophen or ibuprofen, nausea with a bland or clear diet, coughing and runny nose with an antihistamine or decongestant. “Each symptom, you want to address,” Reynolds said.Those who are diagnosed with the flu and must be admitted to the hospital are put in “strict isolation” with staff getting fully gowned, masked and gloved when with the patient. “We shut the door, draw the curtains and put an isolation cart out in front of their room,” Reynolds said.Isolation is also recommended for patients at home “for a full five days,” the doctor said. Paper plates, disposable cups and plastic utensils should be used. “Don’t share anything.“For most of the population that comes in with the flu, we are able to rehydrate them in the emergency room – if they are severely dehydrated – give them some reassurance and send them on their way. Like I said, there’s not a whole lot we can do for them,” the doctor said. “The really sick ones, we admit to the hospital.“The average person is going to be sick for a week, sometimes 10 days.”About 75 percent of those who got a seasonal flu shot will be protected from the flu; the other 25 percent will get a less severe strain. “They aren’t as sick. Their temperature isn’t as high. It may not last a full 10 days,” Reynolds said. “It’s more like a bad cold, not like ‘I’ve been run over by the No. 7 train.’ ”While influenza is affecting everyone, it is most dangerous for infants, children, the elderly and pregnant women.Those who are trying to avoid getting the flu should wash their hands frequently, use antimicrobial hand sanitizers with a soap and water wash after them every five or six times. “Soap and water is hands down the best remedy. Keep your hands clean. Don’t touch anything,” Reynolds said.She also recommends when going to the supermarket shoppers continue to wear their winter gloves when pushing a grocery cart to avoid contact with germs left by previous users.Reynolds said Meridian Health was ready for the flu. Alerts were sent out and supplies were ordered. Staff members were given flu shots.While some people worry that changeable weather can impact flu, Reynolds said she believes the warmer weather the Two River area is now seeing is actually helpful.“The weather can actually work to our favor. People will go outside and not be trapped indoors. When you’re trapped indoors with people, there’s no circulation or getting away from people who are sick,” she said.As for whether antibiotics will work, Reynolds advises flu sufferers not to ask for them. “Don’t come looking for an antibiotic, they don’t work at all,” she said. “The flu is a virus, not a bacteria.”last_img read more

Chelsea Ladies sign another England star

first_imgChelsea Ladies have signed England defender Laura Bassett.The 30-year-old joins from Birmingham City and goes straight in to the squad which departs for the International Women’s Club Championship in Japan this Saturday.Bassett has enjoyed a successful career to date, representing her country on 33 occasions, including at the 2009 and 2013 European Championships as well as the 2011 Fifa Women’s World Cup.At club level, she has been a key member of every club she has represented, with her second stint at Birmingham seeing her lift the 2012 FA Women’s Cup as well as successive FA WSL and Continental Cup runners-up spots.And she sees no reason why her previous success can’t be emulated with her latest club.Rachel Williams was recently signed.“The move is absolutely brilliant and I can’t wait to get started,” said Bassett.“It’s great that we’ve got an opportunity like Japan to get straight in to the action rather than have to wait until pre-season.“Chelsea is a massive club with a big-club mentality so it is a new challenge for me, which is exciting.”Bassett becomes the latest new addition to Chelsea Ladies manager Emma Hayes’ squad, with fellow England international Rachel Williams also joining the club earlier this month.The England duo will join the rest of the Chelsea squad in Japan for the IWCC, and will meet either Australian League winners Sydney FC or Japanese League runner-up NTV Beleza in the last four, with Japanese Cup and League winners INAC Kobe Leonessa or South American side Colo Colo their potential final opponent.And while Bassett admits she doesn’t know too much about their opponents in Japan, she is excited to have the opportunity to lift some silverware so early in her Chelsea career.She said: “Japan is a fantastic opportunity. It is the time of the year where we tend to relax physically and mentally but when an opportunity like this comes along you have to take it to experience the culture, the travel and to play in a tournament like it.“It’s a great chance to settle in and meet the team both on and off the pitch so when January comes round it makes that transition much easier.“It will be a good test out there. I don’t know loads about the opposition but it will be a good test and great to get minutes in a Chelsea shirt.”See also:Chelsea Ladies sign Brazilian midfield starChelsea Ladies sign Japan World Cup starChelsea Ladies star sees bright future for women’s football in EnglandChelsea Ladies star shortlisted by Fifa’Excited’ Williams joins Chelsea LadiesChelsea Ladies to head to Japan for Women’s Club ChampionshipChelsea Ladies star relishing Japan tripChelsea Ladies sign duo from ArsenalChelsea Ladies snap up Dutch 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Standard Bank reduces carbon footprint

first_img17 November 2010South Africa’s Standard Bank has installed a hybrid solar water heating system at its head office in Johannesburg in order to reduce its carbon footprint – while saving the financial group nearly R1-million a year in energy costs.The pilot system comprises 100 solar power panels covering more than 200 square metres on the roof of 6 Simmonds Street, one of the buildings that makes up its head office complex, known as the Standard Bank Centre, in downtown Johannesburg.The new system will be used to heat 48 000 litres of water a day – 20 000 litres via solar and 28 000 litres via energy-efficient heat pumps – saving up to 5% of current building energy consumption.A back-up and top-up system consisting of two heat pumps will support the solar installation for days when the sunshine is not optimal.According to Standard Bank channel development director Marius de la Rey, water heating, lighting and air-conditioning are three of the biggest energy consumers at the bank, and they are also the areas of energy consumption that can most easily be addressed in existing buildings.“The challenge in implementing clean energy solutions is taking the older infrastructure in existing buildings and upgrading and converting to cleaner more efficient systems using alternative power sources where possible,” he said in a statement last week.“We have to be more creative in reducing the energy consumption in our older assets. Standard Bank Centre is already achieving benchmark energy efficient performance.”Committment to green building standardsStandard Bank Group is looking at introducing energy saving measures across the group, and the pilot of the large-scale solar system, combined with the use of energy efficient heat pumps, could be used in areas where energy constraints hinder new business development or the full optimisation of the bank’s properties.“We are committed to building all of our new real estate developments to 4-star green building standards, and cater for reducing CO2 emissions, optimal energy use and savings, and the introduction of the latest green technology,” said De la Rey.Standard Bank Group has also upgraded its air conditioning chillers at the Standard Bank Centre in Johannesburg, while continuous energy audits are also conducted to assist with the introduction of energy efficient technology and other improvements.Driving sustainabilityWith the introduction of alternative energy solutions in the areas of water heating, light control and air-conditioning, Standard Bank Group has reduced its energy demand to 56 watts per square metre, well below national averages.According to Standard Bank Group sustainability director Karin Ireton, the energy efficiency project is part of the bank’s commitment to driving sustainability, and forms part of efforts to make the group environmentally and economically efficient.“In implementing new technologies, companies like Standard Bank can reduce the demand for fossil-fuel based energy and take pressure of the electricity grid,” she said. “Energy constraints are currently a potential cap on growth within the economy and the challenge to all companies is to increase economic output with less energy.”SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
