SAP is limiting support for SAP ERP (originally SAP R/3) starting in 2025. Upgrading your existing ERP system to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management in a timely manner is therefore advisable. You can approach the migration as a brownfield project – a typical system conversion – or a greenfield project – a new ERP implementation. In our SAP S/4HANA Discovery Workshop, you get to work with our experts to explore what migration strategy is best for your company.
Existing business applications are migrated to the new platform in the system conversion. SAP NetWeaver is upgraded to the current version, the database, data structures, and program coding are replaced. Add-ons and customer coding are reviewed for compatibility and adapted as needed. This approach largely protects your past investments in program extensions. A number of preparatory tasks can be completed to minimize the risk and costs of a "Big Bang".
A new ERP implementation is recommended if your existing ERP deviates considerably from the standard and includes numerous custom developments. You are free to choose the operating model for a new SAP S/4HANA implementation. Aside from the established on-premise models, a number of cloud approaches are available to you (private cloud, public cloud as multi-tenant or single-tenant edition). We are happy to help you choose the right option.
The digital core of SAP S/4HANA represents the solution's standard scope. Numerous best practices for standard processes and countries are incorporated in the digital core. This ensures your standard processes run smoothly. Should you need extended functionality for certain processes, you can book specific add-on modules in addition – for instance detailed production planning or revised and extended variant configuration.
If so, get in touch. We'd be happy to help.
