SAP S/4HANA Conversion project is an investment.

The objective of this blog post is to discuss writing a business case for the conversion project and to highlight the very useful BSR tool from SAP.

A business case is required for all projects and a SAP S/4HANA Conversion project is no different.

The main purpose of a business case is to prove to stakeholders that the product being pitched is a good investment and to secure business buy-in.

So our business case for SAP S/4HANA Conversion project needs demonstrate:

  • How the investment aligns with strategic goals of the company

  • How SAP S/4HANA will support our business goals

  • Key business benefits of moving to SAP S/4HANA

SAP is there to assist with this task also, with their very useful BSR (Business Scenario Recommendation) tool to help create a business case for moving to S/4HANA 1909.
This is free of charge for customers on SAP Maintenance.

You can access BSR from here www.sap.com/next-generation-bsr
