What are the right SAP products and solutions for your business? Find out now!

We heard you! At SAPPHIRE 2016 SAP CEO Bill McDermott made a commitment to deliver “guidance, not just options” to transform your business into a Live Business with the next-generation ERP – SAP S/4HANA. SAP Transformation Navigator is the new tool purpose-built to deliver on that promise. Find out how. Get an introduction and access the tool here.


The SAP Transformation Navigator is a free self-service tool available for all customers and partners, answering the following key questions based on the individual customer product map: What are the right products for my business?  What is the business value? What happens to my licenses? What SAP services are available to get me through the transformation?

In this digital economy, it’s winner takes all, and early movers are typically the winners. But, there’s a big difference between understanding the need to move, and knowing where to go. We heard you – you asked for clear guidance, not just options. At SAPPHIRE NOW we introduced the SAP Transformation Navigator.

With this new tool we help you to choose the best SAP products and solutions for your digital transformation journey. It features the full set of SAP products and a comprehensive business capability model across all industries and lines of business. Based on 1,000 value drivers compiled over years of working with leading enterprises on creating the next business practices we show you the business value to help you unlock your new digital IT landscape.  And we provide a clear path to your future IT landscape.

To help engage all necessary stakeholders in your organization, the tool generates a set of comprehensive guides: the Business Guide, the Technical Guide, and the Transformation Guide, explaining the why, what and how to quick start a digital journey. These are very tangible documents summarizing all information and decisions of the self-service tool, plus relevant overall SAP information with an overview of the follow on work – a perfect starting point for future discussions on your digital transformation.


Three steps to get clear guidance:

Which set of SAP applications do I need? – Product Map

SAP Transformation Navigator looks at your current product map and takes into account your preferences regarding Public Cloud or On Premise to come up with clear recommendations for your future Product Map. In addition to looking at pure landscape transformation, it also supports your business transformation. Your business is evolving and you now need new and different business capabilities. Simply choose them from the predefined and industry specific list and the products needed to run them are added to your future Product Map.  For changes in your product map we provide information about integration, SAP transformation services, and licenses.

What’s the business value attached? – Value Aspiration

Each transformation program needs a solid business case based on business value. SAP Transformation Navigator helps you  to make this case by showing the value drivers that are influenced by our SAP Solutions. This builds the bridge to SAP Value Lifecycle Manager to run a Quick Value Assessment and a robust business case.

How do I actually transform from today’s world to the digital future? – Transformation Journey

As the final step, the SAP Transformation Navigator gives you a clear overview over your current product, the assigned recommended product and the specific transition type and with that depicts a list of the required transformation projects.

Although IT is certainly the main driver of a digital transformation journey, this journey won’t be successful or can’t even start, when the rest of the organization is not included. With its collaborative approach SAP Transformation Navigator helps you to engage with the entire organization.
