SAP S/4HANA Conversion project is an investment.
The objective of this blog post is to discuss writing a business case for the conversion project and to highlight the very useful BSR tool from SAP.
A business case is required for all projects and a SAP S/4HANA Conversion project is no different.
The main purpose of a business case is to prove to stakeholders that the product being pitched is a good investment and to secure business buy-in.
So our business case for SAP S/4HANA Conversion project needs demonstrate:
- How the investment aligns with strategic goals of the company
- How SAP S/4HANA will support our business goals
- Key business benefits of moving to SAP S/4HANA
SAP is there to assist with this task also, with their very useful BSR (Business Scenario Recommendation) tool to help create a business case for moving to S/4HANA 1909.
This is free of charge for customers on SAP Maintenance.
You can access BSR from here www.sap.com/next-generation-bsr
