The Journey to SAP S/4HANA: Technical Perspectives

We are often asked by our clients to assist them interpret the various roadmap materials that describe the options available to realise the journey to SAP S/4HANA. Each company has their own starting position on that journey and each company will make that journey at their own pace and, metaphorically speaking, with their own waypoints along the way.

As a consultancy we are spending increasing amounts of our time providing a viewpoint from a trusted third-party to our customers as they look to firm up on their future path to deploying SAP S/4HANA.

For some companies the journey from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA may take place in one step, for others it will be a series of steps undertaken over a period of years. That journey for each company will be influenced by perceived benefit, budget, appetite for change, business need and wider IT strategies.
