SAP S/4HANA Implementation


What is SAP S/4HANA Implementation?

SAP S/4HANA is the current enterprise ERP solution provided by SAP. SAP S/4HANA Implementation covers the deployment and configuration of the solution. Currently deployment methods include system conversion (sometimes called a brownfield deployment), new implementation (greenfield deployment), and selective data transition.

Steps to a successful SAP S/4HANA implementation include evaluating tools, SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA, SAP Fiori, SAP S/4HANA Migration Cockpit, data volume management, custom code conversion, landscape selection, infrastructure evaluation, security overview, and performance monitoring. It is also important to determine whether extensibility or customization will be used to make modifications to the solution to support organizational needs.

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders:

  • How do you decide which of the different deployment models for SAP S/4HANA makes the most sense for your organization? SAP supports three different deployment models for SAP S/4HANA: a system conversion that takes the data and configuration from your existing SAP ECC system and moves them into SAP S/4HANA; a new implementation that brings no existing configuration information into the new system; and a selective data transition that brings configuration information from the existing system but allows data to be moved selectively into the new SAP S/4HANA implementation. This paneldiscusses the benefits of each of these approaches, so you can determine which is best for you.
  • It’s important that you prepare your data for an SAP S/4HANA implementation. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, it’s important to understand your existing data landscape. Where is your data located? How much do you need to bring into SAP S/4HANA? How do you prepare your data for the move? How do you determine whether your data is actually clean? And how can you ensure that the move is successful. This event session walks you through the process of getting your data ready for an SAP S/4HANA implementation and provides best practices for making sure that the implementation goes smoothly.
  • More than just doing the deployment, it is important to make sure that your organization has the right skills in place for your SAP S/4HANA implementation. What skills should you focus on as you prepare for the move to SAP S/4HANA? Are change management skills a necessity? What skills do you need to leverage SAP S/4HANA once it has been implemented? What are the best steps to prepare for the move to SAP S/4HANA? What does an organization need to do in the broader sense to prepare for an SAP S/4HANA implementation? This panel discussion covers these points to help you ensure that you are fully prepared for your next implementation.
