An S/4HANA roadmap is designed to support on-premise implementation of the system. The roadmap proactively manages any related risks, makes the implementation of the project predictable and creates transparency around every stage. SAP offers additional road maps for cloud implementation projects.
SAP sees three implementation scenarios to SAP S/4HANA:
For customers, who would like to implement a new instance of SAP S/4HANA, by either migrating a legacy system, or by running a new SAP S/4HANA installation
- Landscape Transformation:
For customers, who would like to consolidate the existing SAP landscape – or carve out selected entities or processes – as part of their move to SAP S/4HANA
For customers, who would like to convert the existing SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA on-premise including business data and configuration
With this roadmap, SAP Digital Business Services addresses SAP S/4HANA implementation projects holistically, covering all project phases and work streams, in alignment with SAPs latest implementation methodology called SAP Activate.
The SAP S/4HANA implementation roadmap is structured in the following phases.
- Discover – Discover the value of SAP S/4HANA
- Prepare – Start the implementation project
- Explore – Define all details
- Realise – Implement technical and functional change
- Deploy – Prepare for Go-live
- Run – optimise SAP S/4HANA
