SAP S/4HANA Movement – Everything You Need to Know Webcast Summary

SAP User Group Webcast – abstract:

SAP S/4HANA Movement – Everything You Need to Know

The program “Join the SAP S/4HANA Movement” was launched almost a year ago and focuses on the installed base customers and the challenges they’re facing when moving to SAP S/4HANA. Moving as much customers as possible to SAP S/4HANA is the main objective. Therefore, it’s working closely together with partners and already partly with SAP User Groups to set the right priorities and define deliverables that improve or even create methodologies, tools, assets or services for the initial road map discussions, the required product and landscape portfolio, deployment strategy and the implementation itself. All program activities are linked to a framework, which is reflected in a standardized customer journey.

This webinar is the first out of a series, in which you will get to know the SAP S/4HANA Movement program itself, the customer journey behind and additionally, you will find out how your support can help to accelerate the adoption of SAP’s installed base customers.

In this session, the following questions will be addressed:

• What is the SAP S/4HANA Movement program?

• How does the program work?

• How can SAP User Groups support the program? (source: SAP)
