The Corona Effect
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is the greatest challenge that humanity has faced since the two World Wars. Not only is it affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, but it is also having a growing impact on the world economy. According to the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), the global economy could shrink by 1% in 2020 due to the outbreak.
While safety and well-being continue to remain the biggest priority, businesses are rapidly adjusting to these unprecedented challenges. With every industry and geography affected, COVID-19 is pushing companies to operate in new ways. Business continuity, security, workforce productivity, and decision-making are all going for a toss. In addition, Systems and IT landscapes are being tested like never before.
SAP has always helped the world Run Better and Simpler. However, in light of the recent happenings, organizations who were looking to migrate to SAP S/4HANA from SAP ECC are now having second thoughts. They do not want to take any risks and play it safe. Of course, nothing wrong in that. But what if we told you that there is a way to play absolutely safe and prepare your business for tomorrow at the same time?
Yes, you heard that right. It is common knowledge that a complete assessment of the SAP Landscape is required before even beginning the move to S/4HANA. Hence, during these tough times, we have decided to open up our KTern Accelerated SAP S/4HANA Assessment for free.
KTern is a disruptive all-in-one product built on the SAP Activate framework, the “S/4HANAPEDIA” automation rule engine, a next-gen collaboration platform, and future-ready machine learning algorithms. All these features work in coalition to help ECC customers before their transition, during their transition, and after the transition.
Therefore, you can go ahead and assess your ECC landscape and determine the impact of migration, so that when the world and businesses come back to normal, you will be miles ahead of the curve in terms of Digital Transformation.
What is SAP S/4HANA Assessment?
One of the primary reasons for the complexity of any SAP S/4HANA transition project is the vast legacy data and the customizations that you must migrate. An SAP S/4HANA assessment enables you to understand the implications of the transition from an existing SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. The check helps to identify the necessary preparations and pre-projects in the current system landscape, long before an SAP S/4HANA system conversion project starts.
There are several factors which you must consider before deciding to move to S/4HANA. You should have the answers for some relevant questions like:
How disruptive will the transition be for your organization?
What is the amount of effort required to transition to S/4HANA?
How many custom codes will be impacted?
What is the impact on the existing landscape?
How much testing effort and business involvement is required?
How to start preparing for your journey to S/4HANA?
But, how do you get the answers to the above questions? You get the answer by completing a comprehensive SAP S/4HANA assessment/study of your SAP ECC system, preferably with KTern.
Before the transition, KTern provides an auto-generated blueprint for your ECC to S/4HANA system conversion by completing a comprehensive automated assessment. This blueprint will help you define the right plan, the right effort estimate, the right system sizing, the right execution, the right project management, and the right quality for your ECC to S/4HANA transition - Ensuring up to 53% faster, 37% cheaper, and 99.9% safer S/4HANA migrations.
