How to successfully switch to SAP S/4 Hana

Why switching to SAP S/4 Hana is important in the first place

Successful digitalisation is the next step into the future. Companies have until 2027 to switch to the new SAP System S/4 Hana, the intelligent ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system with integrated AI. SAP relies on the cloud and the in-memory database.

From 2027, SAP ERP will be obsolete. This is because: mainstream maintenance of the widely used Business Suite with the core product SAP ERP will only be offered until the end of 2027 and will no longer be supported after that date. This makes a switch to SAP S/4 Hana inevitable.

The good thing about this is that there is still a lot of time for planning and switching until 2027. However, the effort involved should not be underestimated. Therefore, plan your training in good time. It is important to act NOW. Postponing the changeover and thinking there is still enough time would be fatal.

What advantages does SAP S/4 Hana promise?

SAP S/4 Hana promises real-time processing and a dramatically simplified data model. The software is available on-premise, in a public or private cloud or in a hybrid environment. There are significant opportunities hidden in the process of switching to SAP S/4 Hana! Significant things are changing that you will benefit from.


The key benefits of SAP S/4 Hana:

  • The platform becomes more user-friendly. This means, for example, that the user interface is much more accessible, which results in a reduced workload.
  • SAP S/4 Hana is significantly more accessible - SAP promises a better workflow.
  • SAP S/4 Hana takes up less storage space (about 50% less data volume).
  • Significantly faster reporting.
  • Regular updates that promise software of the latest standard.
  • An integrated AI technology that provides significantly higher performance and better insights.
  • An Advanced Real-Time Analysis for better forecasts and faster decisions.
