A number of Companies we have come across are still finding it difficult to decide whether or not to migrate to SAP S/4HANA. We know the companies who would like to migrate to SAP as ERP Solution Provider may put it on hold since the current version of ERP Software by SAP would expire in 2025. However, would not be able to avoid it completely.
There have been some Apprehension from the clients like transition, benefits, why invest, business value it will bring and so on. While there is no one way to adhere to all there problems even if the concerns are completely justified. It is extremely important for an existing SAP implemented company to understand the value SAP S/4HANA brings to the business and how it is positioned to help achieve there Digital Roadmap.

We all are well aware that SAPS/4HANA is completely different from the existing software. It aims to make the data models, business processes and the overall system landscape simple for the client. It should not be treated as a mere Technical Upgrade, providing some upgrades over existing SAP ERP. It is Digital Core of an Enterprise Business.

SAP S/4HANA implementation varies for every company. This step should be achieved only after assessing the enterprises Digital Roadmap and understanding how important SAP S/4HANA is for your business. What value it brings? Many companies do not want to disturb their current system since they think SAP S/4HANA is still evolving. It was found that SAP S/4HANA was not supported by the existing system, and they had to start with something that doesn’t have these constraints. A transformation with SAP S/4HANA is expected not to take as much time it took with the existing SAP ERP as there are a lot of solutions available as a part of the core with pre-activated best practices.
SAP S/4HANA is not an Experience; it’s a Journey that would require times, patience, attention and preparation. Before saying No to the Marketing Executive who approaches you for SAP S/4HANA, ask for the support in various steps required for the Migration and the value it has.
