Brownfield or Greenfield approach?

Some companies do decide on a Greenfield approach where they completely re-engineer their systems. Although this approach can bring many potential benefits such as faster time to innovation, it is a major undertaking and can present a number of change management challenges.

Taking a Brownfield approach enables you to migrate to SAP S/4HANA by building on your existing SAP environment without re-implementation or disruption to your existing business processes.

SAP ECC 6 is reaching end of maintenance by 2025 and SAP is investing heavily in SAP S/4HANA its new generation ERP, focused on simplifying and digitising business processes. If you’re starting from an existing SAP solution, it is an efficient process to migrate to SAP S/4HANA.

Our SAP S/4HANA assessment is the first step to help you define the best approach and evaluate the impact.
