SAP S/4HANA is the latest generation of the SAP Business Suite, characterised by streamlined transactions, a better user experience, simplified data flows, and new functionalities. A move to S/4HANA brings new features, advanced designs and better innovation capabilities. By leveraging SAP S/4HANA, organisations can make the strategic leap forward, but the road to optimisation can be challenging.
This report is intended to inform you about the current progress of companies we surveyed on their SAP S/4HANA journey. It provides insights into how organisations plan, prepare and implement their migration. The companies surveyed are from Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.
Our survey focused on aspects such as success factors, challenges and current activities regarding the introduction of SAP S/4HANA. Last but far from least, we also wanted to gauge the extent to which companies capitalise on the necessary changes as an opportunity for further transformations.
“Belgian companies are lagging an average of one to two years behind the SAP S/4HANA wave compared to our European neighbours. This represents an opportunity to leverage lessons learned from implementations that have already taken place. Involving a quality assurance function in your SAP S/4HANA transformation remains a good practice to help realise anticipated added value and safeguard the return on your investment.”
“Move to SAP S/4HANA – the time to act is now!” is a good one-line summary of our survey. Customers with SAP ERP solutions will no longer receive mainstream maintenance from SAP after 31 December 2027, according to the current schedule. A migration to SAP S/4HANA on-premise, S/4HANA Cloud or other ERP solution is inevitable. A total of 75 companies that have already dealt with the topic more intensively took part in the survey.
