Why move to SAP S/4HANA now?

SAP ECC 6.0 will be fully supported until 2027 – but your legacy ERP system is already outdated when it comes to leveraging the intelligent technologies needed to be competitive today. With over 8,700+ customers live on SAP S/4HANA and hundreds more going live every month, now is the time to make your move to SAP’s modern, intelligent ERP.

Improve current business processes

The SAP HANA in-memory database doesn’t just make everything faster, it applies its speed to a simpler data model, eliminating redundancies, batch processing, and the need to separate OLTP and OLAP. 

Deliver competitive advantage

Built-in machine learning automates key business processes across your organization, improves performance, and empowers employees with real-time BI and predictive insights, freeing employees from routine. 

Simplify your landscape

Companies that have made the move to SAP S/4HANA ERP are seeing remarkable results, from 300% ROI to double-digit revenue increases and dramatically improved productivity, using your choice of cloud, on-premise, or hybrid. 

Get started with the program

SAP consultants and partners know exactly how you use SAP ECC 6.0 today and what is required to transition to SAP S/4HANA. The SAP S/4HANA Movement program includes a mix of free, low-cost and fixed-price offerings. Here are the first three engagements we recommend.

SAP S/4HANA Value Starter

The most critical step is understanding what SAP S/4HANA means for your business. See how SAP S/4HANA improves existing processes and delivers valuable new capabilities. 

SAP S/4HANA Total ROI Analysis

Use SAP TRAC to scan your ECC 6.0 system and compute the cost of doing business today and compare it to how S/4HANA will improve your business processes.

SAP S/4HANA Partner Conversion Factories

With this "Conversion Factory" tool, an SAP partner will convert a single ERP system to SAP S/4HANA for a fixed price and predefined outcome.

Choosing between system conversion or a new implementation plan

Brownfield, greenfield, or something else? Start here to learn which implementation plan, system migration or deployment option is right for your organization.

New Implementation (Greenfield)

This approach is best for customers looking to take advantage of SAP S/4HANA to re-engineer their processes and return to standard functionality and industry best practices. Start with a fresh implementation of SAP S/4HANA and migrate data from your legacy ERP deployments.

System Conversion (Brownfield)

Typically the fastest option, a brownfield approach converts any SAP ECC 6.x system running on any database to SAP S/4HANA, preserving your existing configuration, customizations, and historical data. This approach allows a rapid technical conversion, adding innovations gradually for users.

Hybrid approach

For organizations combining many ERP sysems into SAP S/4HANA, the hybrid approach combines what you need from a system conversion and new implementation using SAP partner solutions and services. This allows you to transform your ERP landscape by geography or company code.
