SAP hosted a webinar on 9/19/2018 to walk us through the scope of the upcoming SAP S/4HANA 1809 release.

In this webinar, SAP promised to continue their commitment to both converting existing ECC R/3 functionalities into SAP S/4HANA, as well as, introducing newer functions and features targeting the innovation.

Even though the 1809 release is scheduled to be released this September 21st (2 days from the webinar), everything that they presented was shown as being “SAP LABS PREVIEW”, that is, the scope can change before the official release.

Some of the changes and innovation items presented today were already expected or previously announced in past roadmaps.

SAP insists that there is no more reason to wait. They want the customers to be confident that S/4HANA is ready to help companies to start their digital transformation. While I agree that the S/4HANA is the enabler of the Digital Transformation, and the system is ready to many companies, there are still some ground to cover.

 

Fast and Furious innovation

There were 4 on-premise releases so far (1511, 1610, 1709 and now 1809) and the number of innovations for SAP S/4HANA products has being growing fast and furious:

September 2018

Just in one year, almost 1,500 new features and innovation items were added to the SAP S/4HANA space (on-premise, on-cloud).  The new release, 1809, brings so many changes and features that the recommendation is to look on the Simplification List, Innovation Discovery and the Roadmaps Portal.

There are changes in LoBs, changes on foundation elements and changes to industry specific releases. Those industries were already available in previous releases, but 1809 brought new features to them that you might want look if you are using one of them.

Next 12 months releases’ roadmap

What is the SAP strategy to the next 12 months’ releases?

Image Source: SAP

How to start?

One point that keep confusing customers deciding what platform strategy to adopt is that although the on-cloud version gets quarterly releases for faster innovation, the same features are also released in the on-premise version during the one-year release.

Check the numbers of innovation items released to the on-cloud version, there are too many, and depending on the strategy of your business, to be on top of the innovation can make all the difference and waiting 1 year is not acceptable.

Image Source: SAP

While the innovation discovery and roadmaps portal are the source for what is there? What is coming?, and navigating on those portal filtering to the items that you think it might be relevant to you is recommended, SAP also recommends companies to running some tools such as:

  • S/4HANA Business Scenario Recommendations – This is a customized report about how SAP S/4HANA can enhance your company’s current performance and competitiveness based on your system’s current production usage data. You should use this tool to identify the business process that can be improved and discover new capabilities. Using this tool, SAP will issue a report with recommendations based on what you have in your ECC today, so instead going to look on a much more comprehensive list of innovation, you can look on the report that is more direct to your company.

All it takes is about 5 minutes to upload the information and in approximately 5 business days to receive a report back. A Sample report can be found here.

  • SAP Transformation Navigator – With this tool, it is possible to see the S/4HANA roadmap to each component you have in your current landscape. This tool assesses your current IT landscape, business strategy, and industry trends, and delivers one comprehensive report containing custom recommendations of the SAP products and solutions required to realize your digital strategy.

You can download a sample of this report here.

  • SAP Readiness Check – Use this tool to learn the technical requirements and actions for a system conversion to S/4HANA. This tool you help to answer questions like:
    • 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?

If you have been following this subject for the past months or years, you may know that there are different strategies to take to move to the S/4HANA, but when to take one option or other it depends on your business objective of moving to the S/4HANA:

  • New Implementation: That’s the Greenfield project (either on-cloud or on-premise) and using the Migration Cockpit to load the data from ECC to S/4HANA. This is the best strategy to companies that want to take this chance to review their processes and re-organize the system, get rid of customizations and push for simplification.
  • System Conversion: If the goal is to move to the S/4HANA faster, and the company is not worried about reviewing the existing processes and to get rid of developments, system conversion might be more suitable to your company.

In the past, early adopter’s customers had to take a long path to be running on the S/4HANA full Suite:

Image Source: SAP

But now, it is possible, in a system conversion, to go from ECC 6.x directly to 1809 on HANA 2 DB without having to go to Suite on HANA first. Now, the process is one-step to move to the Full Suite S/4HANA on HANA 2 DB without having to go through the middle steps, regardless if it is on-cloud or on-premise:

Image Source: SAP

Whether your company must go to the On-premise, public cloud or private cloud, it depends on so many factors, such as: IT strategy, innovation cycles, adoption and upgrade efforts, TCO, Commercial Models, Business functionality, Regulator requirements, etc., here are some of the differences between the platforms:

Image Source: SAP

SAP S/4HANA simplified the data model and introduced a modern user-experience. They are consistent for both on-cloud and on-premise versions and either on-cloud or on-premise were designed for in-memory database and IT landscape simplification.

SAP claims to have more than 2,100 live customers on S/4HANA, more than 8,900 licensed customers where few thousands are already working on their projects. The solution is now available to 25 different industries, in 160 countries and translated to 38 languages.

Every live customer has a success story to tell that involves cost reduction and performance improvement. Here is one example:

SAP CoPilot

SAP CoPilot is the (not new) digital assistant that allows users to organize their day, organize tasks in one central spot, and now, in the 1809 release, incorporate Natural Language. Think on Amazon Alexa or Apple Siri assistants, now you can have the same experience on SAP, asking questions for example, searching for results of sales report in a given region for example, scheduling meetings to talk about a specific item on your SAP dashboard. The CoPilot uses Machine Learning capabilities to improve the results and perform better as it is trained by the user.

    Hi Leandro,

    hopefully you can point me in the right direction. in your blog one can read this: “transparency into the share of the wallet” and i’m not sure what exactly this means. i have gone over the new 1809 finance, treasury, and DMEE references elsewhere on SAP Community, but couldn’t find any mentions of shares of the wallet.

    do you know where i can read some more detail behind this terminology?

    thank you, greg
