The Greenfield, Brownfield and Bluefield Minefield
Most SAP customers are confused about S/4HANA - they don't understand what's new, different or better.
They struggle to create a compelling business case to move to S/4. It's not that the facts don't stack up, more that the facts are too difficult to pin down.
If you run an existing R/3 or ECC system, your migration to S/4HANA should be a big deal. It's a once in a generation opportunity to get ERP right.
But planning how you migrate to S/4 should be
on your terms - not your vendor's.
How should we migrate to S/4HANA?
Rather than Greenfield, Brownfield or Bluefield, our S/4 migration approach is Leftfield.
Because Resulting is a research-led consulting firm, we've invested heavily in understanding what's different about S/4 in a way that supports practical decision making. Our analysis is embodied in our S/4Sight database which visualises:
- Which business processes are impacted or benefit from new S/4 functionality?
- How the technical changes to S/4 map to your existing business functionality?
- How you can benefit from new Fiori Apps or new S/4 features?
- Which parts of S/4 can be used to derive a cohesive business case?
Strategic S/4 Roadmap
It makes more sense to start with your business strategy and business process scope rather than jumping straight into a technical migration debate.
Our approach to S/4HANA starts with the things that matter most to you and then builds a roadmap (and business case) for your business rather than
retrofitting SAP’s sales pitch.
Working out what’s different in S/4HANA, educating your team on the new features, and curating the nuggets of new functionality that will support your business case and delight your business just got a whole lot easier.
FusionGraph is a cloud-based platform that enables you to explore what’s different in S/4HANA in a way that’s meaningful to your business.
