Are there questions about what S/4HANA is able to do for you or how to smooth out your conversion project? The world has changed, the update too! 

Are there questions about what S/4HANA is able to do for you or how to smooth out your conversion project? The world has changed, the update too! 

First we will start with the most obvious, what are the main reasons to migrate? Do you really know the motivations that drive executives to opt for S/4HANA? The following are the main motivations that lead to this decision-making: quais são as principais razões para migrar? Você realmente conhece as motivações que levam os executivos a optarem pelo S/4HANA? A seguir listamos as principais motivações que levam à essa tomada de decisão:

  • Improved performance: SAP S/4HANA offers better performance and processing speed compared to SAP ECC.
  • User experience: SAP S/4HANA offers a more intuitive and easy-to-use user interface. 
  • Integration with other SAP solutions: SAP S/4HANA is part of the SAP HANA platform, which enables integration with other SAP solutions, such as SAP Fiori. 
  • Analytics capability: SAP S/4HANA offers better data analysis capabilities, such as SAP HANA, that enables faster and more efficient data analysis. 
  • Flexibility: SAP S/4HANA is more flexible and scalable compared to SAP ECC, making it easy to adapt to business changes. 

And if it has already become clear that migration is a necessary step to keep pace with competitiveness, and since business support for ECC will end in 2027, what are the biggest blockages preventing such decision-making?  Are they really as big as the market imagines? 

I estimate spending a lot

And if I say it will spend 5x less than expected on traditional projects? 

We don't see enough value to migrate now. 

When you decide to migrate will there be enough manpower in the market to do so? As we quote above, probably not, and if any it will be significantly costly given the unbalanced demand x supply ratio of the present and future market.  

We will migrate in 2030.

Want to spend on maintenance costs that cannot be used? In this mode you spend 2% of the value of the maintenance base and have no return. Literally paying to keep your ECC obsolete, awaiting a change that will be needed in any scenario is not a solution that aims to leverage resources.

We don't have the necessary planning.

Mignow carries out your migration planning for free. 

We believe this is an expensive solution for the moment.

I worry about the Z's, will they work well?

If the question is whether Z's objects are lost, or cease to exist we respond clearly: Nara will happen to Z's objects. They continue to exist in the converted environment. 

We're going to have to stay off for a long time. 

Everything will depend on the size of your environment, today we managed to make some predictions according to what we have already delivered. An average of two days. We can use SAP NZDT. 

The project completion period is long. 

With MIGNOW software we have reduced project time and have an average of 4 months in Brown Field (based on projects already undertaken). 

What are the guarantees that it will work? 

We are the company that has made the most conversions in the world, that's your biggest guarantee.

I don't know what the best migration methodology is (Brownfield vs. Greenfield vs. Bluefield).

  • Greenfield: The client decides to make an implementation from scratch, that is, completely restructure their environment.
  • Brownfield: We load all settings, customizations, transactional data, that is, the entire history and migrate to the new environment (system). 
  • Bluefield: We load all the settings, all the developed programs, but we don't take the transactional data, it's like it started SAP from scratch. With this it is necessary to make loads of master data, balance sheet and open items.
