SAP S/4HANA migration: a step-by-step approach, at your pace

SAP’s next-generation business suite, SAP S/4HANA is much more than an IT tool. It has the potential to transform your organization’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 visualization 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.

SAP S/4HANA migration is the move from an SAP ECC to SAP’s next-generation SAP S/4HANA business suite (either on-premise, hosted in the cloud or hybrid).

E-book: SAP S/4HANA migration made simple

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, optimized 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 easily connects with ground-breaking cloud applications such as SAP CX, SAP SuccessFactors, SAP 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.
