How to get started with a move from ECC to S/4HANA

KTern Whitepaper-Definitive Guide

SAP presented SAP S/4HANA to the world in 2015. Having proven that their new post-modern ERP is the best choice to digitize any enterprise and make it run live, SAP made it clear that SAP ECC will not be supported after 2025. This means that the clock is ticking for SAP ECC. This means that existing SAP ERP users should shift to SAP S/4HANA before 2025. In an interview at the 2018 SAP TechEd conference, Rudolf Hois, SAP VP and chief product owner for SAP S/4HANA stated that 50- 60% of the S/4HANA install base have already chosen system conversion as their route. In fact, to accommodate this route’s growing popularity, the versions of SAP S/4HANA beyond 1809 simplify and reduce the downtime for system conversion. SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA System Conversion, also called a ”brownfield” approach, enables migration to SAP S/4HANA without re-implementation and without disruption to existing business processes. At the same time, it enables re-evaluation of customization and existing process flow. Studies by Gartner, SAP, IBM, ASUG, IDC, and PWC observe that there are 30000+ SAP ECC customers who will make the move to S/4HANA. They predict three critical challenges for SAP ECC customers and SAP Partners -
1. Demand supply gaps due to the volume and difficulty of the activities in S/4HANA transition projects for SAP landscapes of all ages and sizes
2. Project cost and timeline overruns due to extensive manual work, testing complexities, lack of collaboration, and unstructured project management & governance
