For those that feel that they’ve just finally figured out all the aspects of an R/3 system, the year 2025 probably isn’t one they’re looking forward to—as SAP support will cease and the company will focus on its new ERP platform, S/4Hana
For those currently considering a migration to the flashy new solution, there are going to be questions. And SAP Press’ newest book has answers.
What will you learn?
Migrating to SAP S/4Hana is the comprehensive guide to S/4 migration that combines the knowledge of five SAP insiders from product manager to head of development landscape management.
It provides an in-depth look at the three migration scenarios of cloud, on-premise, or hybrid so readers can get a sense of their options and pick which one makes the most sense for their business.
From there, the book provides step-by-step instructions to follow to actually perform the migration scenario that was chosen. Prepare, implement, and integrate!
For those just starting out in the SAP ecosystem, the inclusion of steps to follow for a brand-new implementation are a lifesaver. Not sure what an S/4 solution will look like as these steps are completed?
The book includes screenshots that supplement the author’s instructions, meaning everything necessary to make the transition a success is contained within these pages.
Other highlights include a look at SAP Business Suite vs. S/4, Software Update Manager, database migration, SAP Activate, and Central Finance.
Who is this book for?
Whether you’re scoping your migration project, doing the actual work, or touch any point in between, this book is for you. IT managers and administrators who do the actual integration of S/4 will find step-by-step instructions and screenshots.
Project leads will get a thorough overview of the methods and tools needed in order to make a migration a success. And consultants in charge of migrating other companies’ systems (or even just their own internal system) will get the steps they need to follow to ensure everything goes off without a hitch.
Since the solution covered in this book is just two and a half years old, the authors wrote under the assumption that readers completely green—so if you’re worried about not having any S/4Hana knowledge this shouldn’t be a reason to forgo the book.
And since it’s up-to-date for on-premise release 1610 and cloud release 1702, you can be confident that you’re learning on the newest version of the solution.
