SAP S/4HANA – Is the revolution stopped by migration issues?

Using SAP S/4HANA means transforming corporate IT.

SAP S/4 HANALet me begin by saying that due to technical experts migration issues are not a likely to stop SAP S/4HANA. It is rather the fear of migration issues, which can still be sensed in the SAP customer base that may cause some delays. This fear may have also been the reason why Hasso Plattner spent quite some time of his SAPPHIRENOW 2016 keynote on the topic: “How to get there?”

Fujitsu technical experts also took their time to reflect on the migration topic, get trained and gain experience in early customer projects. From a technical standpoint they fully agree that the migration towards SAP S/4HANA is nothing really new or extremely exciting, because HANA as a technical platform has matured. Furthermore, many migration projects have already been successfully finalized. The efforts required from a technical viewpoint are rather low because the main changes are on application level.

At SAPPHIRE NOW 2016 Hasso Plattner also strongly underlined that the migration can be done by using proven methods and tools. And, SAP has additionally developed some easy to handle special tools, which make the transition as easy, as clean and as secure as possible. When listening to Hasso Plattner’s speech it all sounds as easy as a nice weekend trip. Fujitsu technical experts also took their time to reflect on the migration topic, get trained and gain experience in early customer projects.

However, Fujitsu experts know that even the nicest weekend trip requires some careful consideration and preparation! In this case, IT specialists need to think about network traffic, architecture planning and plans for technological and operational integration. By the way, as it regards infrastructure Hasso Plattner stated that hardware for SAP systems has never been cheaper than today. But being cheap is probably the decisive factor when it comes to infrastructure. Fast and secure implementation and operation combined with a high degree of flexibility thanks to virtualization can make a difference in S/4HANA implementations.
