Q&A

Why move to SAP S/4HANA?

There is always a perception with technology that if it isn’t broken why change it? Apart from SAP ERP named ECC6 reaching end of life on 2027, it is normally specific business reasons that drives the migration onto the SAP S/4HANA platform:

  • Give your users a mobile enabled experience – with many new functions and features from SAP Fiori to help them do their job faster and easier
  • Connects you to people, devices, business networks and big data in real time, to do things previously unimagined
  • Allows you to run all processes in real time, eliminating batch processing
  • Enables you to conduct powerful predictive analytics and simulations based on live real-time data, empowering immediate decision in your executive meetings
  • Speeds up deployment with on premise, managed cloud and public cloud editions combined

 

What approach is right to move to SAP S/4HANA?

We recommend firstly migrating to SAP S/4HANA from a technical and software perspective. Once achieved we can delve deeper into the more functional improvements that need to be made to get the most out of the system.

This gradual approach is popular and enables you to build your foundations, control the risk and manage your business processes. It also works well with global organisations that have different systems operating across multiple countries.

To support the business case for your move to SAP S/4HANA and the best scenario to apply we can run an assessment workshop delivered by proven experts to understand your SAP landscape and the impact on your business.

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 convert to SAP S/4HANA by building on your existing SAP environment without re-implementation or disruption to your existing business processes.
