Time’s has a funny way of flying by.

Even though 2027 might seem like the distant future, in terms of IT planning and deployment it will pass in the blink of an eye. SAP customers should take note.

Don’t wait, don’t be late

For enterprise ERP customers, the transition to SAP S/4HANA is the decade’s most important project. Many SAP HANA customers are already planning for the mandated migration to SAP S/4HANA in the face of additional maintenance fees in 2027.

And yet, a majority of SAP ERP customers still need to step it up. And what a step up it is. SAP S/4HANA harnesses data in the age of digital transformation. It can dramatically accelerate analytics by removing the gap between data capture and analysis. That adds up to real-time insight. Talk about jet propulsion! So, even though 2027 is years away, folks need to get started today.

The secret is timing

Speaking of time, the timing couldn’t be better for getting up to speed if you are in the category above. I’m referring to the fact that the SAPinsider S/4HANA 2021 digital event is right around the corner on March 23-25.

It’s a knowledge-rich experience offering deep insights into each phase of the transition to SAP S/4HANA—from building the business case to going live. It’s also an action-oriented event augmented with case studies and networking opportunities. Top-quality thought leadership will provide best practices and expert Q&As. It’s an incredible event with so much knowledge packed into so little time.

Accelerate your journey

One of the many things you’ll learn at SAPinsider S/4HANA 2021 is that HPE mission-critical solutions can help you accelerate your journey to SAP S/4 HANA. In fact, that will be the focus of SAPinsider S/4HANA 2021 Impact20 session #1 on March 23 at 12 noon ET. HPE’s Vaibhav Rastogi and Chris Kinzler will share how HPE mission-critical solutions can help you accelerate insights and reduce time to value without compromising on choice, flexibility, or performance.

They’ll show how choosing HPE mission-critical solutions to power your SAP landscapes—on premises or in the cloud—will unleash the full potential of your investments while reducing risk. In the end, you’ll see why HPE is the clear choice for your SAP S/4HANA implementation.

The SAP Cloud that comes to you

March 23 at 2:00 p.m. ET: tune into the HPE SAPinsider live session: How to move to SAP S/4HANA in your cloud. HPE’s Gavin Turner and Ed Faichtyger will focus on HPE migration best practices, explore what it takes to run SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in your own environment, and take a look at the option of running SAP solutions in a consumption-based model.

For the long term

On March 24 at 1:30 p.m. ET, Frank Linker of HPE Pointnext Services will advance the throttle on SAPinsider S/4HANA 2021 Impact20 session #2 coveringThe New Criticality of SAP S/4HANA Adoption.”

You’ll learn that HPE’s deep SAP transition experience arises from migrating over 1,500 customers to SAP HANA and being #1 in the market for SAP HANA deployments. HPE itself is one of SAP’s largest customers as it implements business transformation with SAP S/4HANA on a global scale.

Frank will show you how HPE GreenLake cloud services can bring the cloud to SAP S/4HANA at the edge, in a co-location, or in your own data center. In fact, according to SAPinsider, 70% of customers are looking to keep their workloads on premises.

Time well spent

Time in these sessions will be well spent. You’ll learn the migration best practices that HPE has developed, understand what it takes to run SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in your own environment, and explore options for running SAP solutions in a consumption-based model.

Consumption-based. That’s the whole point. Our goal is to transform your SAP experience with HPE GreenLake—the cloud that comes to you. Many customers have SAP HANA and need to refresh or extend the infrastructure that supports it. With HPE GreenLake for SAP HANA, those customers can get a modular foundation for the future that will grow over time.

That means cloud-like simplicity, agility, and economics with the security and performance of on-premises IT. It means an on-demand infrastructure billed as-a-service, a capital expense in a pay-per-use model, scalable in minutes with metered usage. It’s the future now.

And there’s no time like the present to register for SAPinsider S/4HANA 2021, March 23-25.
