If you’re considering an upgrade to SAP S/4 HANA or want to prepare your systems with the latest Enhancement Pack then take a look at how our smart DevOps software, LiveCompare, helps. Whether you’re thinking of a new implementation (greenfield approach), system conversion (brownfield approach), or something in between, LiveCompare’s upgrade assessment app helps you make the right choice by giving you fact-based information on what your current SAP system looks like, and the impact and effort involved with a move to SAP S/4 HANA. We share with you THREE ways to prepare for a move to SAP S/4 HANA, understanding the impact of change on business and IT.
We’re offering our readers a FREE Upgrade Assessment. If you’d like to take advantage of this offer, contact us now.
1 – Assess the Impact
LiveCompare enables you to assess the impact a move to SAP S/4 HANA will have on your business from five perspectives: development, testing, integration, security and training.
Armed with this insight, you’ll know exactly what custom code will break, what to test, the impact on your roles, authorizations and profiles, as well as the impact on other systems SAP interfaces with.
This upfront analysis will help you budget time, resources and cost, whether y
ou plan to do the upgrade in-house or outsource to systems integrators and consultants.
2 – Size and Reduce Your Data
Data sizing is a really important part of your upgrade. The aim is to reduce the amount of data you have without compromising system performance. LiveCompare will assess your data and understand what you actually need vs. what can be retired. This is great for understanding how much memory is required for a move to SAP S/4 HANA. Minimizing and optimizing your data will enable you to maintain healthy systems moving forward.
Our benchmark studies show that, on average, 28% of business process functionality is custom. An upgrade is the perfect time to get a grip of your custom code to reduce technical debt moving forward. LiveCompare, answers questions such as: What custom code can be retired? How complex is custom code and what is its quality? It may make more sense to do a greenfield implementation if you have a highly customized system. Or perhaps a lot of that code can be returned to standard, making a brownfield implementation the option for you. Either way, LiveCompare helps you upgrade 30X cheaper, 85% faster and with zero defects.
