SAP Partner Solution Center guided Brazilian Teams through a 3 day Journey and they gained skills to deliver The Intelligent Enterprise.

The Intelligent Enterprise leverages emerging technologies such as AI/ML, IoT, and Analytics to enable the workforce to focus on higher value outcomes.

SAP will deliver the Intelligent Enterprise through the framework pictured on the right.  The framework features 3 key components:

  1. Intelligent Suite – to enable our customers to automate their day-to-day business processes and better interact with their customers, suppliers, employees, etc., through applications that have intelligence embedded in them

  2. Digital Platform - to facilitate the collection, connection, and orchestration of data as well as the integration and extension of processes in our Integrated Applications

  3. Intelligent Technologies - to enable our customers to leverage their data to detect patterns, predict outcomes, and suggest actions

It's hard to achieve higher value outcome without the latest and newest Digital Core - S/4HANA. As a first task we recommend to Move the ECC to S/4HANA to get the simplified business process based on simplified data model, embedded analytics and SAP Fiori.

SAP Fiori 3 is SAP's new target design system, which evolves the SAP Fiori design for all SAP products to fully support the Intelligent Suite, running on any device.

During the 3 days journey the Brazilian Teams prepared The Intelligent Enterprise Proposal with the following 4 steps:

Analyzing Customer Circumstance

By analyzing the customer circumstances with the BSR Business Scenario Recommendations and the Readiness Check the Brazilian teams received profound information.

With these business scenario recommendations for SAP S/4HANA, SAP provides tailored recommendations based on customer current productive system usage to show you where you can benefit most from SAP HANA, SAP Fiori and SAP S/4HANA.
This report shows you which business scenarios are most relevant for you based on the data you submitted for analysis.

SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA supports customers who plan to convert existing SAP ERP 6.x systems to SAP S/4HANA. It checks both your production systems (or copies thereof) and your development systems for SAP S/4HANA conversion compatibility and necessary conversion preparation steps. The results are consolidated in an interactive dashboard.

Customer Project Scope - Intelligent Suite

By mapping the the current BSR with the SAP Best Practices for S/4HANA Scope Items the Brazilian Teams could cover easily 60-80% of the ECC Scope and achieving 100+% with adjustments in customizing and with development in SCP - SAP Cloud Platform.

We strongly recommend to keep the Digital Core - SAP S/4HANA on the latest and newest version. On that way the customer gets constantly the new innovations. To keep the upgrade effort minimized we do the development in SCP.

Guidance to the Intelligent Enterprise

The Brazilian Teams entered the defined customer project scope by selecting the Products, S/4HANA & SCP, selecting the Capabilities in the SAP Transformation Navigator and then created the Value Assessment. By selecting the Value Driver based on the project scope, doing an aspiration they calculated the one-time and recurring benefits.

Return on Investment

Based on the chosen deployment option, we chose the conversion (Brownfield), we analyzed the SAP software licenses and subscriptions, project efforts for conversion and SCP developments including the Infrastructure. The participants were surprised about how fast the pay back is and return on investment.
