SAP Digital Transformation


What is SAP Digital Transformation?

Digital transformation may have reached buzzword stats years ago, but it is still relevant to many organizations looking to modernize their processes and systems to keep pace with trends in their industries. Digital transformation isn’t limited to a single technology or vendor, but SAP Digital Transformation is common, given SAP’s core enterprise technology market share.

What is SAP Digital Transformation?

Digital transformation may have reached buzzword stats years ago, but it is still relevant to many organizations looking to modernize their processes and systems to keep pace with trends in their industries. Digital transformation isn’t limited to a single technology or vendor, but SAP Digital Transformation is common, given SAP’s core enterprise technology market share.

Companies undergo digital transformation with SAP and other technologies by taking processes that may have been manually tracked through physical paper or spreadsheets and using digital technologies to make organizational data more accessible, more accurate, and more analyzable.

All areas of the business have potential for digital transformation with SAP technologies, such as SAP S/4HANA for ERP, SAP Ariba for procurement, SAP Fieldglass for contingent labor management, SAP Concur for travel and expense management, and SAP SuccessFactors for human experience and human capital management.

Other vendors providing important technologies that enable digital transformation include Microsoft, which offers cloud-based tools for everyday business needs like Office 365, as well as Azure, a platform and cloud infrastructure for hosting important enterprise applications. Additionally, many SAP partners work with companies to help them undergo digital transformation from the process and technology implementation perspective, including Accenture and PwC.

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders:

  • Clearly define the primary reasons for digital transformation. Identify the key reasons for change and promote them as a focal point for your staff in your implementation journey. “Organizations that take the time to identify the big three to five reasons why they are moving to SAP S/4HANA and hold those up as their North Star for change have excellent outcomes,” said Mary Sibley, head of the North American Center of Excellence for SAP S/4HANA at SAP at a recent virtual SAPinsider event.
  • Build a culture for adoption. Automation is central to digital transformations — such as automation in finance, for example — and requires buy-in from department professionals to maximize value. Leadership-led change management providing governance and robust training helps build innovative cultures, enhancing the organization’s digital transformation strategy.
  • Break down large digital transformation initiatives into digestible components. This was a key learning for the Eczacıbaşı Group in its SAP Digital Transformation with SAP S/4HANA. When hundreds of stakeholders have a say in determining project goals, implementation teams will benefit from knowing the precise steps to take, which tools to use, proper timing, and expectations. Providing this guidance to technical teams helps ensure successful project outcomes.
