Do you have questions about SAP S/4HANA deployment? Have you ever wondered…

  • How big should my SAP HANA database be?
  • Are my add-ons compatible with SAP S/4HANA?
  • What SAP Fiori applications are relevant to my users?
  • Which business functions I run are affected by SAP S/4HANA?
  • Which transactions I run are affected by SAP S/4HANA?
  • Will my custom code objects work with SAP S/4HANA?

You could get answers to these questions before, of course, but you needed several different SAP tools to get them and it was time consuming. Sadly, this complexity kept many SAP customers from beginning their SAP S/4HANA planning and discovery tasks. Now this will no longer be an excuse!

Starting in June 2017, you can get answers to these questions in one easy to use cloud-based tool: SAP S/4HANA Readiness Check.

Readiness Check will be available free to anyone who has an SAP maintenance agreement (an S-user account). Working with your BASIS team, you upload your SAP ECC 6 configuration and the result is a beautiful dashboard:

The dashboard covers everything from HANA sizing to custom code analysis, to recommended Fiori applications. The best part is the information is based on your exact deployment. By clicking on each of the tiles, you drill down to more detail and can act on what you see. Here, for example, is the HANA sizing detail:

As soon as Readiness Check is launched, you should run it. Even if you are unsure of your exact SAP S/4HANA deployment plans, there is a lot of valuable information in Readiness Check. Come back to this article June 1 for a link to Readiness Check.

If you are attending SAPPHIRE NOW 2017 (May 16-18 in Orlando), be sure to check out session 43208, where you can see a preview of Readiness Check and learn more about planning your SAP S/4HANA journey. For a complete list of SAP S/4HANA topics at Sapphire see the Agenda Builder and sample itinerary for IT professionals.

    Excellent blog Carl. Cleared a lot a questions about Readiness check.

    As per OpenSAP courses Readiness check is part of SAP Solution Manager.

    Will this feature also be available via Solution Manager 7.2 or is it a cloud application like Maintenance planner which is only available via SAP Marketplace?

      It is a cloud application and you will need an S-user account. Once I get the link to it when it goes live, I plan to update this blog post with that info.
