S/4 - Time is running out - and so is the number of experienced SAP consultants!

After the Handelsblatt reported in the middle of last year that three quarters of all companies are very reluctant to switch to SAP S/4 Hana, a recent study by Lünendonk paints an even more drastic picture:

Only around ten percent of the 150 DACH IT decision-makers surveyed have already completed the technical changeover, and only a further five percent are currently in the migration process.

The effects of this hesitant approach are drastic. From 2022, according to the Lünendonk study, there will be a veritable avalanche of projects, which will then lead to a project backlog.

Because the resources of corresponding service providers are already thin on the ground today. There is also a lack of consultants in the area of SAP security and compliance - although this area is not even considered in most migration strategies.

This often turns out to be a fatal mistake. Bodo Kahl, CEO Sast Solutions at Akquinet, also warns against neglecting these topics in conversion:

"Due to the growing threat situation from both inside and outside the company, I strongly advise incorporating a comprehensive security concept into the migration processes and the new software generation from the very beginning. In this way, responsible parties save both time and money and make the best possible use of the potential of S/4 Hana."

Work on SAP Basis is crucial for successful S/4 conversion. This gives the so-called Competence Center strategic importance among SAP's existing customers. Regardless of the operating model of an S/4 Hana, topics such as automation, monitoring, security, application lifecycle management, and data management are the basis for the operative S/4 operation. For the second time already, E3 Magazine is hosting a summit in Salzburg for the SAP community to get comprehensive information on all aspects of S/4 Hana groundwork. With an exhibition, expert presentations, and plenty to talk about, we again expect numerous existing customers, partners, and experts in Salzburg. E3 Magazine invites you to Salzburg for learning and exchange of ideas on June 5 and 6, 2024.
