SAP S/4HANA migration: a step-by-step approach, at your pace
SAP S/4HANA migration is the move from a, SAP ECC that runs on-premise on a database other than SAP HANA, to SAP’s next-generation SAP S/4HANA business suite (either on-premise, or hosted in the cloud ).
SAP’s next-generation business suite, SAP S/4HANA is much more than an IT tool. It has the potential to transform your organisation’s entire business strategy. It enables real-time data-driven decision-making and unlocks the power of breakthroughs such as AI, machine-learning and IoT. Thanks to SAP HANA in-memory data technology, SAP S/4HANA offers unparalleled data processing and visualisation capabilities.
Hesitating about making the move? Good news: you can migrate at your pace, and select the best approach for your business. Our experienced team is standing by to help.
migrate to SAP S/4HANA today and reap the benefits of the world’s leading next-gen ERP – before your competitors do
Why move now?
SAP will no longer support its existing ERP business suite in 2027 – requiring users to move to the HANA in-memory platform. While migrating to SAP S/4HANA is inevitable for SAP customers, the potential costs, complexity and duration of a migration project may be daunting.
When it comes to the approach and pace of your migration, your business has options. Replatforming today – rather than at the last minute – offers even greater flexibility.
Reap the benefits of SAP S/4HANA
Even better, you’ll be able to harness all the advantages of a proven next-generation ERP system before your competitors do. Count on:
- gaining real-time business insights, for informed decision-making, optimised processes and better services.
- working in a faster, more agile way thanks to SAP S/4HANA’s simplified data model and the exceptionally intuitive SAP Fiori user experience.
- accelerating innovation, as the central HANA core combines traditional ERP with CRM, EWM, transportation management and more, and ground-breaking cloud applications such as SAP C4HANA, SAP SuccessFactors, Concur, SAP Fieldglass and SAP Ariba.
- harnessing the latest technologies, such as IoT, big data, blockchain, machine learning and beyond.
- simplifying and streamlining your combined move to the cloud (if using an on-premise platform).
Note that an increasing number of new SAP applications will only be available on SAP S/4HANA.
