SAP Migration Options and Conversions – 9:30am Claire Richards, Solutions and Services Architect.

This session focuses on real-world examples of the strategies that customers are taking in terms of migrations to S/4HANA and the Public Cloud to drive transformation, and specific customer success stories and lessons learned 

Let’s start by thinking about what drives change? Simplified this can be changes to your business processes, technical change, SAP functional change or a combination of all of these. The objective is to ensure that your SAP platform and its performance is not a barrier to change. One option is to do nothing, which will inevitably see the rise and rise of technical debt and a bigger barrier to change that requires greater effort to overcome. The objective is to achieve a flexible, responsive and modernised IT platform which meets current and future business needs.  

Your Journey to SAP on Hyperscale and S/4HANA may have different starting positions and goals as well as considerations as well as to how success is best achieved. Given to extended SAP support for ECC, many customers are opting for a migration to Hyperscale and possibly Suite on HANA before considering and planning for an additional step to migrate to S/4HANA. For Business Warehouse (BW), there are three principle migration conversions based on in-place, remote and shell conversion but this can be delivered independently of ECC and other SAP applications helping Customers to define their Hyperscale best practices before integrating other SAP applications.  

Along with these best practices, there are some general migration and conversion recommendations which simplify, accelerate and lower risks and costs. These will be explained within the session.
