Single Tenant Edition (STE) :
SAP S/4HANA Single tenant Edition (STE) is one of the cloud offerings from SAP and another flavour of S/4HANA solutions among SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP S/4HANA in HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) and SAP S/4HANA On-Premise.
As the name of this offering suggests, the application is provisioned to a single-customer in a dedicated landscape , offering the full scope of S/4HANA. However the total cost of Ownership (TCO), the speed of innovation and time-to-value cannot be achieved as much as in SAP S/4HANA Cloud which is why customers considering Cloud ERP must first discover and verify the capabilities of SAP S/4HANA Cloud. If the standard best practises and functional scope does not meet all of the customers need, S/4HANA Cloud, STE could be an ideal substitute solution in the customer’s journey to move to cloud.
