Are you planning to convert a SAP ECC system to SAP S/4HANA in the next months or years?

Experience shows that well prepared customers are able to convert their system to SAP S/4HANA more effectively and securely than others. So start today to think and learn about the steps that are necessary and take a look at the different phases your conversion project will lead you through.

We invite you to participate in the upcoming virtual enablement session, powered by the SAP Enterprise Support Academy, to gain hands-on knowledge on the key project management aspects of a SAP S/4HANA conversion.

This training session aims to specifically prepare project managers that are new to SAP S/4HANA with an insight on what is specific to SAP S/4HANA conversion projects and what the project could look like.

During the 75-minute webcast, an SAP expert will help you to understand the key characteristics of SAP S/4HANA conversion project, show you the key tools that are relevant, and guide you through the 6 phases of the SAP Activate methodology, which is SAP’s recommended methodology when implementing SAP S/4HANA.

Please find here a first glimpse on the 6 phases of the SAP Activate methodology:
