Review: Implementing SAP S4/Hana Finance

In August 2016, SAP PRESS published a guide to implementing SAP S/4HanaFinance. The book was so popular that it quickly sold out and a new edition was warranted within a year. Now up to date for S/4Hana 1610, this new edition is the book you’ll want on your desk as you make the transition from SAP ERP to S/4HanaFinance.

What will you learn?

Implementing SAP S/4HANA Finance doesn’t release until next week, but SAP Press gave us a sneak peek at the book ahead of the holiday season. And we can assure you that its updates make this on-premise implementation guide a must-have. Step-by-step instructions walk you through the migration process, system testing, and configuration. And a sample project plan will be indispensable for those contemplating a migration.

Whether you’re looking for configuration information for the general ledger, asset accounting, or cash management, you’ll find it in this book. In-depth looks at key system changes from SAP ERP to SAP S/4Hana are helpful for readers still evaluating their move to this new and exciting future of finance.

In addition to the updates for release 1610, the book has an all-new chapter on the Central Finance deployment option. Take a look at the general process and get an expert’s perspective on the business case for Central Finance. Plus, previews for SAP S/4Hana 1709 help you walk away with a better understanding of where the solution is going in the future—before implementations have even begun.

Other highlights include:

  • Migration preparation, installation, and data checks
  • House bank accounts
  • Controlling
  • Business planning and consolidation
  • SAP Fiori applications
  • Migration checklist

Who is this book for?

Anyone looking for information on migrating financials data to this new solution. Members of the project team who are actually doing the implementation. Consultants looking to understand where things are and how they got there. Business process architects. Power users. Solution architects. These are just some of the readers who will want to give this book a read.

Author Anup Maheshwari did a commendable job in these 570 pages, and his 20 plus years of SAP experience shine in this book. While not designed to be a study guide for the SAP S/4Hana Finance associate certification, Maheshwari’s book can certainly provide a solid look at the key topics covered on those exams and should be considered as part of any study regimen.

You can find the book on the SAP Presswebsite and read a sample chapter by clicking on the “Browse the Book” button beneath the book’s cover.
