As you already know from my blogs SAP S/4HANA System Conversion – Challenge for your custom code and  SAP S/4HANA System Conversion – Custom code adaptation process the adaptation of custom code is an important milestone on your journey towards SAP S/4HANA.

But do you know that your journey has already started and that you can prepare a lot of things already today in your existing landscape? Why is this so important?

You need at least 1 year to collect the data about your productively used custom code with the SCMON to detect and clean up the unused custom code before the SAP S/4HANA conversion.

In order to minimize the scope of your custom code for the S/4HANA conversion project you should start today to carry out new developments "S/4HANA ready" and educate your developers in the new ABAP technologies like CDS, AMDP, ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse, which become mandatory in SAP S/4HANA.

So what can you do today in your SAP Business Suite landscape to prepare your custom code for SAP S/4HANA journey? This blog offers recommendations and checklists for you what to do.
