SAP S/4HANA Journey started in Turkey – TechEd Barcelona 2016

I’ve been working in SAP ecosystem since 1999 and attended 5 SAP TechEd as an attendee. Now I’m very happy to attend upcoming SAP TechEd Barcelona as a Speaker.

When Katarina post the blog “Barcelona wants you! – Call for Speakers from the SAP Community“, I accepted the call of nature and applied with our very recent project which started the SAP S/4HANA Journey in Turkey.

Very first SAP HANA adaptations in Turkey started with some pilot sidecar scenarios for SAP BW, continued with few SAP BW on HANA and SAP BPC on HANA projects as a new implementation. Some large enterprises decided to move to SAP BW on HANA from their classical SAP BW  environment in recent years. All new SAP implementations mostly starts with SAP HANA and SAP ASE (Critial and core systems on HANA, rest on ASE). And also we now started to hear that some customers started to move to SAP Suite on HANA.

But what we’ve achieved is still the 1st (and will always be) and sole in Turkey.

Last year, we’ve migrated EVE Shop‘s SAP ERP systems running on SAP HANA to SAP’s new generation business suite SAP S/4HANA in 3 months.

Eve Shop Success Story

We would like to share our experiences during this first SAP S/4HANA migration journey. We will cover the following topics during our session:

  • Project goals
  • Customers expectations and their SAP S/4HANA motivations (e.g. See the S/4HANA effect of retail data in profitability analysis)
  • Technical aspects of migration
  • SAP Fiori – expectations, pitfalls, results
  • SAP HANA Live – expectations, pitfalls, results
  • SAP S/4HANA – expectations, pitfalls, results

Please, come and join us to listen our experiences and lessons learned from the First SAP S/4HANA Migration Project in Turkey at our Session TEC122.


If it is allowed, we’ll welcome you with our traditional delights.


What is Turkish Delight?
