Why Businesses Should Plan for and Reap the Benefits of an S/4 HANA Migration Now

 In Migrate

SAP users know the deadline: Customers must migrate to the S/4HANA database by the end of 2025. SAP HANA brings substantial benefits to organizations, from cost-savings to enhanced business decision-making.

Theoretically, eight years seems like plenty of time — no reason to worry about migration now, right? There are so many challenges and issues that must be handled today!

But smart organizations know that SAP systems are mission critical. There is no room for downtime or error, and the risks of waiting to migrate are real. A limited number of firms have the expertise to perform the migrations, and as the deadline nears, available resources may become scarce.

S/4-HANA Improves Data Storage and Analysis

S/4-HANA is a new ERP platform from SAP. The core ERP application (finance, sales, accounting etc.) is now completely digitalized and runs on the SAP HANA database. Data is stored and analyzed differently than on SAP’s older ERP systems.
