Proceed Group's client had their sights set on a cloud migration and a future transition to S/4HANA. The objective was to roll out this transition in stages over the coming 2-3 years. The most significant hurdle in their path was the sheer size of their database, which had grown beyond 40TB. The risks, costs, and dependencies involved in migrating such a massive database to the cloud and subsequently to S/4HANA were monumental.
The critical challenge was to downsize the database size by approximately 50% within a 12-18 month timeframe. This reduction was a prerequisite before any further migration strategies could be considered. Recognising the gravity of the task, the client approached Proceed Group for a robust and effective plan to manage this undertaking.
