Best Practices for Evaluating Your SAP Landscape for a Successful SAP S/4HANA Transformation

December 15, 2015

It’s no secret that organizations that don’t embrace the digital enterprise will fall behind their competitors. SAP S/4HANA is designed to help SAP customers down the digital transformation path, but how can companies best navigate that road for a successful migration?

Organizations should first build a strong business case to justify a transformation program, then define the end state — what will your SAP landscape look like when you’re done? That is the SAP landscape that will sustain and enable your digital enterprise, and it must be systematically planned. Following that, an effective transformation program depends upon a strong and complete assessment of your current SAP environment.

On December 15 Mateen Chishti of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and SAP’s Jay Foard answered readers' questions on how to initiate a no-game-playing assessment of your current SAP environment. As a follow-up to an SAPinsider webinar on building a business case for SAP S/4HANA, Mat and Jay took questions on how to effectively evaluate your environment and execute and manage the journey to SAP S/4HANA. They discussed assessment best practices as well as what skills and capabilities are necessary to achieve this transformation, such as:

  • What areas of my SAP landscape do I need to assess before migrating to SAP S/4HANA?
  • What kinds of tools are available to accelerate the assessment process?
  • How should I go about defining the SAP landscape that I want to move to SAP S/4HANA?
  • How does a transformation plan fit into my company’s existing roadmap?
