E-3 Round Tables
Many successful R/3 systems are also based on extensive Abap modifications. The question of total cost of ownership (TCO) in Abap coding rarely arose.

The many aspects of new S/4 licenses based on existing SAP systems are a topic for specialists and a challenge for SAP Basis. Knowledge about the appropriate SAP license transformation and conversion is relevant for all basis managers. The S/4 conversion poses major challenges for license management in every respect.
The lack of adequate IT staff will continue to preoccupy the SAP community for some time to come.

Many companies have heterogeneous system landscapes. This often leads to silo architectures and consequently to fragmented supply chains. In addition, the life cycle of common tools in supply chain management is expected to end in 2025.
