The Situation

  1. The semiconductors manufacturer witnessed competitors moving to S/4HANA and started exploring the benefits of them moving to S/4HANA and when they should make the move
  2. As the next step, the semiconductors manufacturer worked along with their system integrator to define the business case for the move to S/4HANA
  3. Once the business case was ready, they wanted to draft a risk-free plan to move from ECC to S/HANA
  4. To build the best plan possible, they realized that a lot of insights on the “as-is” system is needed
  5. Estimations stated that it would take 25 man-days to complete their assessment and build the plan
  6. The search was on to for automation driven assessments to reduce the cost, time and effort required
  7. After comparing multiple products and services, they finally chose KTern to fulfill their requirements
