SAP S/4HANA Readiness Check


Converting your SAP ERP 6.x system to SAP S/4HANA is not a trivial task and you know that. Your organization understands the value proposition for the next-generation business suite and wants to get an overview on the main implications of a system landscape conversion to SAP S/4HANA.

Besides of some pre-requisites like an already completed Unicode conversion, there are many topics that need to be analyzed prior to a SAP S/4HANA system conversion project. We built the SAP S/4HANA Readiness Check to get you an overview of the most important aspects such as:

-         What about the add-ons you have installed on your ERP, are they compatible?

-         Which Business Functions you run are affected by SAP S/4HANA?

-         How big should your SAP HANA Database be?

-         Which Transactions you run are affected by SAP S/4HANA?

-         You have plenty of custom code objects built on your system, are they going to work with S/4HANA?

What SAP Fiori Apps are relevant to your users?

Getting answers for each for those questions can be very time consuming and involves many different tools, SAP Readiness Check facilitate your life as it provides a nice one-stop dashboard with details like the ones mentioned above. It is definitely a great tool for a first check and foundation for your system conversion planning.


You can set it with the help of your basis expert by following the SAP Note 2290622 - SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA.

Note: Prerequisite for SAP Readiness Check is SAP Solution Manager 7.1 – SP 12 or higher, or SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SP 03 or higher

If you have not installed a SAP Solution Manager system, it is also possible to perform the SAP S/4HANA Readiness Check in the managed system. Refer to the blog Simplification Item Catalog, Simplification Item Check and SAP Readiness Check for SAP S/4HANA for additional details and introductions.


In case you’re one of the thousands of customers who have already chosen to convert their current SAP ERP 6.x to SAP S/4HANA, this report is a MUST as it summarizes the most important aspects of the conversion in an easily consumable way. It does what promises quite well, however, if you are not sure about WHY moving into SAP S/4HANA I strongly recommend you to consider running the SAP Transformation Navigator and SAP Innovation and Optimization Pathfinder in combination to start discussions around innovation and value realization for your digital future.
