The rise of technology has propelled businesses into changing their ways when it comes to strategy, execution, and planning. With SAP S/4 HANA, a company’s digital transformation journey can be accelerated by implementing it to its core. However, changing a business’ core is no easy task as it takes a deep knowledge and experience for preparing, completing, and supervising implementation projects.
SAP allows a company to speed up its digital transformation without causing disruption while keeping a smooth business outcome. SAP has a 4-step implementation of S/4 HANA. Here is an explanation of the steps:
Step 1: Explore
First, there is a Business scenario recommendation (BSR) where all possible journey options are reviewed. After that is fully discussed, it is time for the company to Meet the expert (MTE) for an overview of the SAP S/4HANA Finance solution that will provide more information over the chosen scenario. The expert will create an overview of the transition to SAP S/4HANA on analytics for SAP S/4HANA as well.
Step 2: Prepare
Once the overview of the transition is completed, Expert-guided planning (EGP) for new implementation of SAP S/4HANA will commence. Once again, the company will meet the expert to deliberate sizing for SAP HANA® and for system clean-up prior to migration to SAP S/4HANA.
Step 3: Realize
The company will use EGI for common user experience through SAP Fiori ® UX and meet the expert for rapid data migration to SAP S/4HANA.
Step 4: Deploy
When deployed, there will be a continuous quality check (CQC) for implementation, for going-live support, and for SAP® Business Process Performance Optimization. Once the continuous quality check has been performed thoroughly, there will be an SAP Enterprise Support report.
As you can see, an extensive quantity of expert support is needed to realize a full digital transformation to S/4 HANA. When the expert advice is implemented, the journey progresses at a much faster rate because of the structured planning involved.
