Is Integration the Hardest Part of an SAP S/4HANA Migration?
Meet the Experts
⇨ Business leaders have a wide array of decisions to make leading up to an SAP S/4HANA migration.
⇨ Integration is a major stumbling block for many of these projects.
⇨ Having real-time data is essential for integration.
When migrating to SAP S/4HANA, there are several Key Decision pillars that you need to work through to determine the right choices for our upgrade journey. From talking with so many of you architecting your migration plan, you are deciding where S/4HANA will reside, what path to take to get to S/4, what business value you will deliver, or whether this be a purely technical upgrade.
In this article, you can learn how to handle the never-ending decision of how to manage and what to do with all that data—the struggle is real and ongoing even before thinking about upgrading. All of these are major decision points that can affect the successful outcome of your S/4HANA initiative.
S/4HANA migrations have a lot of pieces to the puzzle: on-prem/cloud, brown, blue, green, hosted or not, technical, or functional or both, do it in-house or get an SI (Systems Integrator), and timing are all considerations you are thinking about as you and the team plan your journey. But integration—something we all do all day, every day—is also a huge branch on the decision tree.
