Good advice and useful links with S/4HANA information

Kolbjørn HavnesOur SBN president Kolbjørn Havnes in his part of the annual SBN report for 2021 (see link) shared wisdom from implementing S/4HANA at Hydro. Pls. find below extract from his report.

"Quite a number of member companies are struggling how to move from existing ECC solutions to S4 HANA. Most companies seemingly are approaching migration. SAP is doing an excellent job technically migrating newer ECC version to S/4HANA. 

My experience is a migration will be a timely process with much effort afterwards over several years to gradually harvest the HANA capabilities.

My advice is therefore, before you decide between greenfield and migration, to closely study the technical capabilities of the HANA technology. Focus on how your company can utilise S/4HANA functionality, like data storage, cross module data transfers, user interface, authorization concept and reporting capability, etc and check if eventual a Greenfield implementation is worth the longer implementation project as you can harvest from the full S/4HANA capability very quick. 

Ensure you have the total picture related to pre-implementation,-implementation and -post implementation efforts before you decide on your journey." / All the best Kolbjørn


PS: Please notice our SBN S/4HANA Day the 8 June
