The ‘Why’: The key to unlocking the value in digital transformation
Meet the Experts
SAP’s 2027 extended deadline on SAP S/4HANA migration has lit a fire under many businesses that had long been deferring the move. Now it is a priority. However, SAP S/4HANA is only good as the value you want to get out of it, and too often businesses are choosing to make the jump for a technology upgrade. This is a major problem, because for all the new benefits and innovations that SAP S/4HANA brings to the table, these simply cannot be attained solely by performing a technology upgrade. Worse, an SAP S/4HANA migration project can actually result in negative ROI if you haven’t performed a careful upfront analysis on what exactly you need to get out of it.
Enterprises can’t let the tail wag the dog here. The end goal isn’t to migrate to SAP S/4HANA just to migrate or have another digitalization project; the end goal is to unlock new business values. That means step one in any digital transformation is to identify the “why” – why you’re transforming. Identifying that “why” informs every other decision in the process, but so many enterprises skip this step focusing rather on the “how” and the “what”. This session delves into why the “why” is so integral to unlocking the value in digital transformation, marrying that “why” to something measurable and how asking yourself this question – or not doing so – can have tangible impacts on the shape, timeline and ROI of any transformation project.
