The migration to a new ERP system is not a standard IT project, but a far-reaching system change, associated with several challenges.
Before migrating to SAP S/4HANA, companies need to make some important decisions that affect the entire migration process. The switch to the SAP S/4HANA cloud system requires a different approach than the switch to on-prem SAP S/4HANA.
A couple of key questions need to be addressed, e.g.:
- Should the existing SAP ECC system with its data and settings just be simply converted?
- When is it more practical to set up a new ERP system that may be better equipped for the future?
