Inspired by today’s 2017 SAPPHIRE NOW Session EA8948: Discover the SAP Transformation Navigator, I want to see this in real live action on my system landscape.

Therefore, I log into SAP Transformation Navigator:

And Create a Product Map:

From my customer profile:

From my systems, I chose my ERP, S/4HANA Finance and S/4HANA systems:

Which results in Open Decisions regarding my ERP and S/4HANA Finance systems, since my S/4HANA system seems to be fine:

First I chose my S/4HANA Finance system and am being asked for my preference:

I choose Public Cloud:

Which seems to settle this Open Decision:

For my ERP system, I chose On Premise which results in the question about which capabilities I am using. Since this is a test, I choose Accounting (ERP) and Closing Operations (ERP) only which results in the question, whether I would want to use the Closing Operations under The Compatibility License, which I do:

As a result, that Decision Point is answered:

And I am presented with my Recommended Products:

Next I define my Top Value Drivers, as an example to Reduce finance cost only:

To get the sequence recommendation of My Transformation Journey, I chose to Sort by: Number of Enabled Capabilities:

Subsequently, I Generate my result Document(s):

And download them respectively:

As a result, I got my

  • Transformation Navigator Overview
  • Business Guide
  • Technical Guide
  • Transformation Guide
  • Transformation Navigator Appendix

Of course, I am only scratching the surface here, but this tool looks promising to me!

    Frank, nice blog – does the tool give you details of the license costs ? does it let you create a BoM that you can share with SAP ? Do you imagine the eventually SAP will include a “Buy It Now” button ? Now that really would be a digital transformation 🙂

      Thank you Owen,

      In fact, there is Licenses information by Recommended Products:

      As well as a Bill of Materials view of them:

      Unfortunately, the One-klick Buy button is missing yet, but I have been told, that there will be further iterations of the tool towards Q3 of this year 😉

      Best regards

      Frank

      Hello Tushar,

      I think the EA Explorer and the Transformation Navigator are two distinct pieces of content and will therefore coexist.

      Best regards
