Webinar 3: Worry-Free Integration and Extensions of SAP S/4HANA
Change doesn’t have to be painful (or time consuming). Take British cycling, for example. Some say it changed in a single day – when it hired a new Performance Director. In the ten years from 2007 to 2017, British cyclists won 178 world championships, including five Tour de France victories. In the previous 110 years, no British cyclist had ever won the Tour de France (or much else). The difference of course, was the superior approach of British Cycling Performance Director, Sir David Brailsford (back then he was just Dave), and his now infamous aggregation of marginal gains.
Building on a foundation of numerous improvements results in massive success. It’s the same with SAP S/4HANA. You’ve already put the work in and customized your legacy systems. And naturally, you want to preserve the value and marginal gains these customizations bring to your business. By moving these modifications into SAP S/4HANA – along with clean core data – you’ll benefit from the huge aggregated benefits and power that S/4HANA brings to your whole business. So much so, that you’ll also gain a ten-fold acceleration in the development of your applications, thanks to the low code approach with the SAP Cloud Platform.
But aside from your customizations, how can you successfully integrate SAP S/4HANA with your existing landscape, such as your CRM, HR and supply chain systems across the cloud and on-premise? And what’s the best way to ensure your business processes are mobile ready on handheld devices with extensions on SAP S/4HANA, or innovate around specific business processes with Machine Learning or predictive analytics?
As part of our wider five-part Webinar Series on how to make the move to SAP S/4HANA, this third webinar in the series shows you exactly what steps are required to protect your customized code and integrate it effectively into the SAP S/4HANA environment so you can innovate and handle modifications worry-free and with ease. In addition to the ‘how to’ steps from SAP experts, partners and customers, you’ll also hear how easy it is to create intelligent, mobile-ready applications to better serve customers, modernize business processes and effectively compete.
