A growing number of businesses are swapping their existing ERP systems for SAP S/4HANA. Where are you on your road to SAP’s new business suite? Afraid to take the leap, or wondering what road to take? Let us help you prepare for the transition – with an assessment that fits your needs.

Good preparation is key to a successful move to S/4HANA. Luckily, you don’t have to go it alone. Based on years of experience and lessons learned from projects large and small, our SAP experts have developed an approach to help you understand your system and organizational needs, and plan your route to future-proof ERP. 

Four assessments to fit your needs

We created four assessments to guide you on your road to S/4HANA. Though all are different, each includes three key steps: we assess your needs and ideas, explain the benefits of moving to S/4HANA and draft a roadmap toward the successful achievement of your goals.

Beyond determining the scope of your move, we tackle all the questions you may have to eliminate surprises. How will we manage the risks? Who does what in the process? Which licenses should we buy? Who needs to be informed? How will the move impact your end users’ experience? Do you need change management? As a result, you will get a broad, clear overview of the impact of moving to S/4HANA. 

Figure 1: key factors in moving to S/4HANA

Let us help you create an S/4HANA adoption plan to overcome common obstacles and ease the move to the platform. 

  1. Greenfield vs. conversion assessment 

    When you are already running SAP, you may doubt whether to convert the existing platform and its customizations to S/4HANA, or to start from scratch. We help you determine which path to choose: the conversion or greenfield (i.e. from scratch) approach. Discover more on which path suits your needs in our dedicated blog post.
     
  2. Innovation and optimization assessment

    More than anything, moving to S/4HANA allows you to innovate. But which of your businesses lines will profit most from these possibilities? The innovation and optimization assessment investigates your options on two levels:
    - Business lines: S/4HANA offers innovative features for each business line. We organize workshops to compare your ‘as is’ and ‘to be’ situations and show you where your innovation opportunities lie.
    - Fiori and UX: we create a top 3 list of Fiori applications for each business line that might be the most interesting for your company.

    The result?
    A clear overview of innovation opportunities to seize as you move to S/4HANA.
     
  3. Core technical assessment

    Not sure exactly how and when you want to get on the road to S/4HANA? No problem: our core assessment allows you to quickly estimate the costs and timing of the transition without going into too much detail. We combine insights from your employees that we gain through workshops with a thorough analysis of your IT systems to create an impact report.

    The result? A report that serves as a tool to help you explore your options. On top of that, you can use the insights in a deeper, long-term analysis of the different roads to S/4HANA.
     
  4. Full technical assessment

    This is the most complete assessment: we create a copy of your current system in a Sandbox environment and convert your system to S/4HANA using an accelerated best practice approach to define the full impact of your transition. We investigate the consequences of theoretically unpredictable issues and combine our insights with experiences from previous conversions and upgrades.

    The result? A broad overview of your timing and costs, and a step-by-step plan to move forward.
