Whether you’re thinking of a greenfield approach, a brownfield approach, or somewhere in between, LiveCompare’s upgrade assessment helps you make that decision 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 recently ran a short webinar to show the assessor app in action. To watch the replay, take a look here.

Spot the Difference

So how does Upgrade Assessor work?

In the most basic sense, LiveCompare automates a “spot the difference” between your as-is SAP system and the to-be one you’re considering a move to.

Use LiveCompare to take an as-is snapshot and then upload this snapshot to the LiveCompare cloud. We then run a comparison for you against a HANA system running in our lab.

LiveCompare’s smart analysis finds everything SAP has changed and more importantly, shows what the impact of that change will be on our business.

LiveCompare’s analysis considers the upgrade from six key perspectives: development, testing, integration, data validation, security and training.


And the Results?

LiveCompare produces a dashboard report and upgrade summary, as well as detailed reports which drill down into those five areas.
