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

SAP ERP system support expires in 2027

You might have thoughts that there are still 5 years ahead! However, migrating to SAP S/4HANA is a long-term project that, according to SAP estimates, could take from 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 7 months.

The longer you wait, the fewer resources left

If companies using SAP ERP decide to start the migration process at the same time, it will be difficult to find experienced integrators and experts who would not be involved in other projects. Starting a project today means doing it with a reliable integrator, in no hurry, and without a need to choose between the processes that require migration in the first place.

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 are 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 to combine them. As a result, you'll get the innovative SAP S/4HANA system with updated processes and a new data model.
