Crossing Your Own Finish Line: A ‘How To’ Guide To Your Multi-Stage SAP S/4HANA Transition
I’ve been watching this year’s Tour De France (from the comfort of my couch). Aside from my huge admiration for the fitness levels of the riders, what struck me most was the strategy of the teams and the extended support they have from managers, teammates and maintenance vehicles – particularly in adapting to unexpected conditions in their environment, such as this year’s heavy hail and landslides. The cyclists rely on these steady partners and colleagues for agile support and troubleshooting on their multi-stage race.
Mere mortals like you and me will often do a leg of the Tour in the off season for fun – yet each of us will take our own route, pace and pit stops based on our unique circumstances and individual environments. Afterall, there are multiple stages and multiple routes to get each of us across the same finish line. It’s the same with your SAP S/4HANA transition, and although it’s not a race, it is a multi-stage journey.
In the same way that every individual athlete is unique, every business environment has its own specific IT landscape and requirements, making every customer journey to SAP S/4HANA slightly different. That’s why we’ve created a ‘How To’ Webinar Series to show you each stage of the transition.
Whether you’re making your move now or a year from now, staying on-premise, moving to the cloud, or consolidating multiple ERP instances to one, we have designed this Webinar Series to spell out the different stages of your migration journey and how to master them.
Think of it as a wealth of experts riding alongside you in your cycle lane, spelling out various options, stages and insights, telling you what’s coming up ahead, showing you how to slipstream and talking to you with tips and advice from the peloton. And just like riding a bike, you can go as fast or as slow as you like.
In this five-part webinar series, our SAP experts and key partners will spell out how to start your transition, plan your own unique journey, maintain data quality and integrity, master data migration, manage custom code and extensions, as well as what this means for reporting and advanced analytics. More importantly, you’ll also hear directly from customers who have already started their SAP S/4HANA migration journey, along with those who have already completed it, crossed the finish line and are reaping the rewards.
And speaking of rewards, the business and IT benefits of making the transition are immense, providing a digital backbone for your business, and empowering you to quickly take advantage of innovation technologies, such as Machine Learning, Predictive Analytics and Artificial Intelligence.
By turning your insights into action, transitioning to SAP S/4/HANA means you can easily manage all your current and future data transformation, quickly understand and make use of the vast amounts of data in your business – from IoT and internal systems across every possible customer touch point – reducing process and business complexities and improving efficiencies. And to show you just how powerful this is, our Webinar Series includes an exclusive customer panel discussion, enabling you to hear directly from your peers who have already embarked on their journey.
With SAP S/4HANA, there’s no reason to compromise any of your critical custom processes and applications, including legacy systems. Afterall, nobody wants to sacrifice their custom code by transitioning – and you don’t have to. SAP S/4HANA gives you worry free integration and extensions along with the ability to harness a single view of your business so you can easily identify new opportunities, easily recognize areas for innovation and drive business growth.
Whether you’re transitioning as part of your digital transformation strategy, to gain greater speed and agility, to better drive innovation, to scale quickly or to simply execute the next part of your SAP strategy, this Webinar Series spells out the pathway to get you to SAP S/4HANA successfully and smoothly.
