MIGRATION TO RISE WITH SAP, CLOUD ENVIRONMENT
SAP S/4HANA MIGRATION SCENARIOS
Technical assessment is the first step in the transition to SAP S/4HANA. It helps you determine the amount of resources and time you need to allocate to the transition. In addition, it enables you to develop a detailed plan for your migration, as well as assess all relevant current and potential risks. Ultimately, this step gives you fast access to innovative SAP S/4HANA features.
As the result of technical assessment, you receive a list of tasks to implement and a recommendation about the migration scenario that is the most feasible for your migration project. We distinguish four basic scenarios for migration to the on-premise version of SAP S/4HANA.
In the case of Greenfield Implementation, you are implementing an entirely new SAP S/4HANA solution. Greenfield Implementation is the migration option to choose, if you have never used an ERP system before or if you have a solution made by another vendor. Further, Greenfield Implementation is useful, if your SAP solution has functionality that you do not use or do not want to use in the future. If you migrate your system in full, you repeat your problems over again.
Converting ERP into SAP S/4HANA is also known as System Conversion or Brownfield Implementation. Brownfield Implementation is feasible when business processes are clear and well documented. In the case of Brownfield Implementation, you are converting the functions and data you want to retain from the old system onto the new SAP S/4HANA solution.
HYBRID MIGRATION (Selective Data Transition) from Business Suite 7
Hybrid Migration (or Selective Data Transition) is useful when you need to transfer your data from one or more existing ERP solutions to a new SAP S/4HANA solution. This scenario is a good option for you, if you are choosing to use new functionality after migration but are willing to save the investments that you already made in the customization of your existing functionality.
Selective Data Transition offers two prominent strategies for setup of a target system: Shell Conversion and Mix&Match. In the Shell Conversion method, a shell copy of the production system, without master and transaction data, is created and then converted to SAP S/4HANA. As for the Mix & Match method, it involves a fresh SAP S/4HANA installation followed by a targeted transfer of specific elements of the existing configuration and ABAP repository, either manually or using transportation.
The Landscape Transformation approach is a smart choice for a company that utilizes multiple SAP ERP systems. It is also a good choice for companies that have non-SAP applications that need to be integrated with their SAP S/4HANA systems. These include analytical platforms, HR software, and procurement applications, among other applications essential to business operations.
In these cases, the transition from the old landscape to the new one is done by migrating data from different sources with a defined set of SAP Landscape Transformation tools. Within the Landscape Transformation approach, data that are stored in the inherited applications become part of the SAP S/4HANA core. In fact, this is the first step into the new system. Once that is complete, the only thing left to do is plan the phased transfer of older business applications to SAP S/4HANA. Then, sunset those after the transfer is complete.
