SAP S/4HANA Migration

The Countdown to 2027 Has Begun

2027 is the date when SAP users need to have completed their migration to SAP S/4HANA. Though it seems like a long way off, by the time you’ve gotten a business case signed off, selected the right partner, completed the build, and gone live, there’s actually very little time left over as contingency. Now is the time to start thinking about the best way to provision and manage your infrastructure for SAP S/4HANA, as well as determine the best migration route.


Migrate your SAP Systems to the Cloud

Some of our clients can’t simply migrate to SAP S/4HANA. The infrastructure their production systems reside on does not have the capacity to support both production and migration activities. That’s why these clients migrate their existing SAP system as-is to a hyperscale Cloud as a first step. Once there, they have the infinite capacity of the Cloud to both provision and accelerate the migration process. The migration to a Cloud environment is also a good time to start ensuring your architecture is migration-ready with an SAP S/4HANA compatible OS and DB. And, should the 2027 deadline be extended again, you know your SAP systems are safe on a maintained infrastructure.

Greenfield Implementation of S4/HANA

Some companies are taking the opportunity to start the build of their SAP systems from scratch. However, whether you are new to SAP or are taking the opportunity to simplify and optimize your existing SAP system, just taking a traditional lift and shift approach to migrating and managing your SAP systems will usually result in the same SAP experience you had before including high costs, low agility, and little innovation.

Taking a Greenfield approach to the migration to SAP S/4HANA results in rapid and low cost provisioning of SAP S/4HANA infrastructure, low cost and responsive project support, and ongoing Cloud-native and Cloud-optimized operations.
