SAP S/4HANA migration refers to moving from your existing SAP ERP system, such as SAP ECC that runs on-premise on a database other than SAP HANA, to SAP’s intelligent, next-generation ERP business suite named SAP S/4HANA that comes in on-premise, cloud-hosted, or hybrid.
There are multiple options recommended by SAP to migrate to SAP S/4HANA. The process can be based on your requirements, maturity level (S/4HANA Finance or full S/4HANA Enterprise Management), budget, and deployment model (Cloud, Hybrid, or On-premise). There are three highly popular transition scenarios: New implementation (greenfield approach), system conversion (brownfield approach), and landscape transformation.
SAP provides tools to simplify the migration process to S/4HANA. SAP S/4 HANA Migration Cockpit is a web-based tool that helps migrate your legacy data into S/4 HANA. It is packed with a set of pre-existing objects that are updated with every release. Apart from the set of standard objects, you can also develop new objects or enhance the existing ones based on your specific needs. Migration Cockpit is available for S/4 HANA Cloud and on-premise from the S/4 HANA Release 1610.
There are a number of migration scenarios when it comes to ECC to S4 HANA migration. To determine the appropriate scenario, your migration partner needs to analyze your current landscape as well as used functionalities and modules in your current SAP landscape/system.
Typically, ECC to SAP S/4HANA migration involves the following phases:
- Preparatory phase
- Technical migration phase
- Delta Customization
- Data Migration
Fingent helps you accomplish a seamless migration from ECC to S/4 HANA. To learn more about the migration process and phases, contact our SAP expert.
