Increasingly, businesses are being shaped – and reshaped – by a fundamental schism: life before intense disruption and the new normal during recovery. But in between that potentially wide gap is a series of smaller shifts, in which every instance can be considered the “next normal.”
Each next normal presents a dramatic restructuring of business operations as well as the customer experience. No one knows with 100% certainty when each next normal will emerge and how it will impact our world. But rest assured, it will come – rendering traditional thinking and assumptions irrelevant and useless.
How will businesses keep positioning (and repositioning) themselves to survive, as well as thrive, within each new norm? For many SAP customers, the answer is already here: a move from their legacy ERP system to SAP S/4HANA.
Moving with resolve, resilience, and resourcefulness
SAP is committed to helping businesses persevere tremendous disruption today and strengthen their digital foundation to tackle the next normal that lies ahead. For example, during the onset of the recent pandemic, we gave access to SAP technology and solutions, at no additional charge. Additionally, we offer numerous tools, reports, and services through our SAP S/4HANA Movement program, enabling our customers to map their way to an intelligent ERP foundation at their pace and convenience.
For example, our business value advisor tool measures the potential value and impact of SAP S/4HANA for specific functions with well-defined benefits and savings. Meanwhile, SAP S/4HANA Adoption Starter Engagement offers technical and best practice guidance to help IT and non-IT decision-makers weigh their options between on-premise or cloud deployment, system conversion, and new implementation.
These offerings are just a small part of the vast range of opportunities we give our customers. Year after year, we continue to expand SAP S/4HANA Movement to help our customers advance their move toward SAP S/4HANA with resolve, resilience, and resourcefulness.
Introducing a Webinar series on all things SAP S/4HANA
Now, we are happy to add the “SAP S/4HANA Movement Webinar Series” to our program. The series of 21 Webinars, presented in 11 weeks, is designed to take SAP and non-SAP attendees through the end-to-end journey to SAP S/4HANA and beyond.
In week one, our team of SAP S/4HANA experts will share how businesses, like yours, are gaining a unique competitive advantage with an intelligent ERP built to be the driving force behind reimagined business processes and models. You’ll learn how to create smooth end-to-end processes, smarter interactions, and improved customer experiences, as well as innovations designed to deliver the critical benefits of becoming an intelligent enterprise.
Once you get an overview of the advantage of SAP S/4HANA, you’ll understand why I am particularly excited about this series.
Starting in the second week, we are dedicating each session to a specific planning tool, engagement model, or service. You can watch a real-life demo of the SAP Transformation Navigator tool, uncover the value of SAP S/4HANA through gamification, or the ultimate engagement model that is moving thousands of customers to SAP S/4HANA. Additionally, our service offering will be presented in full detail, including SAP Model Company, SAP Value Assurance, and SAP Enterprise Support services, as well as conversion factories, enablement offerings, and deployment tools for conversions and new implementations.
If you have ever thought about a move to SAP S/4HANA or on your way toward implementing it, we hope you join us for our Webinar series, beginning on Monday, April 20th. You can attend one of two sessions of each Webinar event or choose to watch the replay on demand.
Whichever option you pick, we look forward to helping you get acquainted with everything at your disposal to unlock new business value with SAP S/4HANA and transition seamlessly. And more importantly, we are ready to help ensure your businesses never miss a moment in every next normal.
