SAP S/4HANA migration is the move from an SAP ERP system, such as SAP ECC that runs on-premise on a database other than HANA, to SAP’s next-generation S/4HANA business suite (either on-premise, hosted in the cloud or hybrid).
In today’s fast-changing business environment, companies are under high pressure to be faster, smarter, more agile and more innovative than their competitors. SAP’s next-generation business suite, S/4HANA, was developed to help them achieve those aims. Hesitant about making the move? We can help you migrate step by step, at your very own pace.
By 2025, SAP will no longer support its existing ERP business suite, requiring users to move to the HANA in-memory platform.
While every SAP customer knows that migrating to SAP S/4HANA is inevitable, many are concerned by the cost, complexity and duration of the migration project.
Starting your re-platforming now, however, will allow you to make the shift at your own pace.
Moreover, you’ll be able to reap the benefits of SAP S/4HANA before your competitors do:
Based on our extensive knowledge and many years of experience with SAP, delaware can help you make choices – to ensure you unleash the full potential of SAP S/4HANA. Our approach includes five steps:
Start small and think big: that is our motto for S/4HANA migrations. Once the basics are live, we can help you explore new features and domains, like digital marketing, digital manufacturing, robo accounting, etc. In this way, you’ll deploy SAP S/4HANA to create a competitive advantage.
There is no one-size-fits-all solution for migration. Priorities vary and each organization needs to determine what the best way forward is. Some businesses opt for a ‘greenfield’ installation, i.e. starting from scratch. A ‘brownfield’ conversion to S/4HANA, however, is the most common path: upgrading live systems and selectively reusing existing system elements.
In other words, most migrations don’t come with a big bang. You can move forward at your own pace as your requirements develop. S/4HANA can, for example, be used with the classic SAP GUI in a first phase. The move to the SAP Fiori is then made through improvement projects later on.
