WHY IS MIGRATION NEEDED AND HOW DOES IT HAPPEN?

In 2027 SAP will complete massive support for SAP ERP 6.0 and the SAP Business Suite. The system can be used until 2040.

At first view companies have time to “move”, however, SAP experts advise to do it now. After all the exploitation of such a system will cost additional money and will complicate the use and development.

It will be more and more difficult to adapt old versions to new business requirements.

The longer the history before the “move”, the more complex the migration map will be, which can be realized according to the following scenarios:

  • New implementation. It means a complete reboot of the business automation system with maximum use of innovations at the time of transition.
  • System conversion. Transition from the current SAP ERP 6.0 to SAP S/4HANA with maximum preservation of the client’s existing developments.
  • Landscape transformation. A new implementation scenario in which data is transferred to the target system depending on the organizational structure of the company.

The migration scenario is selected based on the results of a functional-technical assessment, which is carried out before the start of the main work. The term depends on the scale of the client’s company and may require up to 3 months of work.

At the same time, the migration itself will last up to a year and even more for a business with a large pool of developments and multi-level landscape architecture. So, it requires careful planning and preparation. The process must be organized in such a way that the implementation of the new system does not affect daily activities.

For its part, SAP SE has developed a number of additional tools in order to simplify the process. Yet at the stage of preparation, the customer defines a road map and can plan the most smooth transition.

 

WHAT IS SAP S/4HANA

TIMELY MIGRATION – HIGH BUSINESS EFFICIENCY
