Migration from SAP ERP SD to S/4HANA Sales

Using the right advice for a future-proof SAP system landscape

Are you facing the exciting task of migrating your company's sales and shipping processing from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA? Do you have a productive ERP environment and well-established processes, but don't quite know how to approach the migration to S/4HANA and what the changeover means for your company?Or are you uncertain about how the new S/4HANA system will work and how it will differ from the existing ERP solution? You are not alone. Get advice from a competent team that has already successfully migrated a large number of SAP ERP systems to S/4HANA.

The advantages and disadvantages of the available migration scenarios, the decision between on-premise and cloud, the best migration path for the concrete company situation and the expected project expenditure are often unknown variables.
The majority of sales processes in the SAP backend and the on-premise solution have not changed fundamentally. However, there are differences in the data model and in individual application areas, for example in credit management, rebate processing, revenue recognition and foreign trade. Therefore, a migration is not a matter of course.

And those who opt for a cloud solution or the conversion of the user interface to SAP Fiori open up completely new perspectives and design options. However, the new solution often no longer has much in common with the familiar SAP ERP GUI interface and the processes based on it.
Thanks to the SAP release strategy, every user is given a long-term migration from SAP ERP to S/4HANA. The project scope of such an S/4HANA conversion far exceeds that of a familiar release change. The migration opens up numerous new possibilities, but also requires knowledge and experience that companies often do not yet have.

Use your advantages. Seven good reasons for CONSILIO

  • We are active as consultants and developers in numerous ongoing S/4HANA projects and have an eye for practical problems.
  • We think outside the box of sales and are happy to support you in other areas as well. This can be just as much a business partner migration as the planning and execution of an overall S/4HANA implementation in your company.
  • We are aware of the special importance of foreign trade in the context of an S/4HANA conversion, as not all foreign trade functions of the ERP environment have been ported to S/4HANA International Sales so far. Here we offer practical solution proposals and, if required, we are also happy to support a parallel SAP GTS implementation.
  • In addition to the applications and processes in S/4HANA, we also master the technologies on which the new system is based. If required, we are happy to extend existing processes via OData services, SAP Fiori, new CDS views, etc.
  • Because we know the data model of S/4HANA and its differences to SAP ERP exactly, we eliminate pitfalls during migration at an early stage. This allows you to concentrate on designing the new processes and not get lost in unnecessary technical activities.
  • We know in which areas of the S/4HANA migration unexpected project expenses can arise and how these can be avoided.
  • If you wish, we can take over the overall management of your S/4HANA project or support individual application areas as part of an overarching project team. Both during the project and afterwards, we are available to you as competent contact partners for all questions concerning S/4HANA.

This is how you can bring your processes into the digital age with the right software.
Your S/4HANA migration project, for example, could run like this:

  • In a first, non-binding workshop we will introduce S/4HANA to you and talk about the typical process of an S/4HANA migration project. We will define the concrete framework conditions of your company and point out the differences between possible migration scenarios.
  • In follow-up workshops, your concrete situation will be worked out and a roadmap for the S/4HANA migration will be created.
  • In the analysis and design phase of the actual project, it is not just about the simple migration of a software product. Due to the new technologies and possibilities available under S/4HANA, questions of infrastructure, front-end integration and process design are of central importance. The simplification of existing, often grown processes and a return to the SAP standard are also important topics that should be considered in the context of an S/4HANA migration.
  • Depending on the approach you choose, we then also support the build and test phase up to ramp-up support after going live. In doing so, we follow your implementation approach or bring along the implementation methodology - just as you wish.
  • We know the areas in which S/4HANA differs from the conventional ERP solution and offer practical suggestions for migration.
  • We know where SAP ERP solutions have been simplified or relocated and where existing functions have been completely eliminated. We will provide you with the appropriate recommendations for your project.
  • Even after the successful changeover, we will still be there for you with advice and support. We will be pleased to support you in a long-term customer relationship in the support and ongoing development of your implemented S/4HANA solution.
