SAP S/4HANA is more than just another new release. SAP’s new business suite brings about so many changes and new functionalities that have the power to transform your business. Meanwhile, the complexity of the software could result into an unsuccessful transformation. Is it that hard? It is. However, attributing to the 25 years of guiding our clients through their SAP implementations, we have gained the right experience and expertise to guide you through your own.

What S/4HANA is really about.

The major innovation of S/4HANA is the radical simplification of the data model it is based on. SAP’s new ERP system SAP S/4HANA is based on the in-memory database platform SAP HANA. Through its fast computing capabilities, it provides you with real time results and insights which are essential in today’s networked and speed driven economy. Besides that, it comes up with renewed applications, analytics and the modern user interface SAP Fiori. One major shift is that important SAP applications like TM and EWM are integrated parts of one single system.

SAP S/4HANA can modify all critical enterprise functions ranging from finance and supply chain all the way to customer service and marketing. Through it, businesses are able to transact, analyze and predict in real time in a world that remains continuously unpredictable.

Your path to S/4HANA.

We see switching to SAP’s new business suite SAP S/4HANA not as an aspiration, but a necessity. It’s not a question of “if” but of “when” and “how” to do the migration. Success requires an organization to not only implement or migrate to a new platform, but to decide on the best-fit deployment option for their unique business. Whether it is an on-premise deployment, with altered infrastructure to handle exponential growth but still enabled for quick innovation cycles, whether it is a mature and flexible private cloud deployment with 2 innovation cycles per year or whether it is a next practice public cloud deployment with 4 innovation cycles a year or even be a mix of all 3 options.

S/4. We have
6 packages for you.

By 2027, SAP will end its mainstream maintenance of SAP ECC 6.0. Even so, many organizations hesitate to start the migration and struggle to make the business case work. This is understandable as the move to S/4 really touches the core of a company and many decision makers fear the consequences and the effort such a big change comes with.

As a leading consulting company with a rich experience and dedicated expertise in implementing SAP software, we know both the requirements and implications of changing and optimizing business processes and the technology perspective. Therefore, we teamed up and developed an approach that helps companies save time, empower users and become proactive instead of reactive. When guiding companies and organizations on their transformation process to SAP S/4HANA we have a clear roadmap and a set of packages. Our 6 steps to S/4HANA help you structure and execute the migration so your company can move quickly and accelerate the desired value.
