  • Adopt Next-Generation Finance without Disruption with Central Finance

Jump-start your journey to SAP S/4HANA. Unify existing SAP and third-party systems with Central Finance. Understand its unique ability to combine harmonization and analysis enabling cutting edge finance innovations. Learn how, even in heterogeneous landscapes, Central Finance can be a value creator, transformation platform, and reporting hub.

  • Enable Intelligent Data Integration within SAP S/4HANA Central Finance and Magnitude

Learn how other central finance customers have successfully integrated detailed transactional data from both SAP and 3rd-party ERP sources using the SAP Central Finance Transaction Replication application by Magnitude for SAP S/4HANA to maximize overall solution value and achieve fast, low-cost, and low-risk financial transformation.


Additionally, here are some of the questions and answers from our live session:

  1. The earlier versions of SAP Central Finance needed quite extensive customization/integration, could you share the latest improvements to address this?
    Data harmonization and migration is still a key critical path of a Central Finance project. With Magnitude products for data harmonization and transaction replication we have now standardized accelerators available to ease the set up, please check out the deep dive session on this topic.

  2. How does Magnitude cover the custom field migration from non SAP ERP to Central Finance
    It is incorporated into the existing mapping. That is why it takes 15-20 days, to account for those changes, otherwise it would just be 5 days.

  3. Which scenario is recommended for moving logistics process to S/4HANA after a Central Finance implementation?
    Standard (new implementation) project is recommended and work closely with a system integrator.

  4. Where can I find documentation in relation to the SAP S/4HANA move approach
