WHY DO YOU NEED TO START MIGRATING TO SAP S/4HANA TODAY?

SAP ERP system support expires in 2027

You might think that there are still five years ahead! However, migrating to SAP S/4HANA is a long-term project that, according to SAP estimates, could take 12 to 18 months. Also, before launching the project, it is necessary to conduct a technical analysis of the current system, and this can take up to seven months.

The longer you wait, the fewer resources you will have

If multiple companies using SAP ERP decide to start the migration process at the same time, it will be difficult to find available experienced integrators who are not involved in other projects. Starting a project today means doing it with a knowledgeable and reliable integrator who is dedicated to your project. You will not have to choose between processes because you will have time to implement all the options you wish to migrate.

Be one step ahead of the competition

SAP S/4HANA and its innovative solutions help enterprises outperform their competitors by increasing revenue by 20%, sales by 15-20%, automating business processes by 70%, and enhancing other indicators important to production.

80%

of the world's population uses smartphones (Source: Ericsson & The Radicati Group report). That is why SAP S/4HANA focuses on the adaptability of the user interface and the availability of the system on any device.

Brownfield, Greenfield, or Bluefield — which migration option to choose?

Implementation from scratch (Greenfield)

This approach requires initial data loading and is suitable for enterprises that use legacy SAP ERP or have not previously worked with SAP solutions. Because Greenfield focuses on implementation from scratch, the scenario supports migration to both on-premises SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

System conversion (Brownfield)

If you’re already using SAP ERP in your enterprise and are satisfied with the existing SAP landscape, this approach is for you. It involves updating a live system using the Software Update Manager and the Database Migration Option.

Landscape transformation (Bluefield)

Are you using multiple SAP systems? The Bluefield scenario will help you combine them. As a result, you'll get the innovative SAP S/4HANA system with updated processes and a new data model.
