Moving from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA

SAP ECC 6.0 will be fully supported until 2027 – but your legacy ERP system is already outdated when it comes to leveraging the intelligent technologies needed to be competitive today. With over 8,700+ customers live on SAP S/4HANA and hundreds more going live every month, now is the time to make your move to SAP’s modern, intelligent ERP.



Improve current business processes
The SAP HANA in-memory database doesn’t just make everything faster, it applies its speed to a simpler data model, eliminating redundancies, batch processing, and the need to separate OLTP and OLAP.

Deliver competitive advantage
Built-in machine learning automates key business processes across your organization, improves performance, and empowers employees with real-time BI and predictive insights, freeing employees from routine.

Simplify your landscape
Companies that have made the move to SAP S/4HANA ERP are seeing remarkable results, from 300% ROI to double-digit revenue increases and dramatically improved productivity, using your choice of cloud, on-premise, or hybrid.


Why does SAP S/4HANA only run on the SAP HANA database?

Only SAP HANA’s in-memory, columnar database can provide the data model simplification needed to bring the improved business processes, simplified landscape, and competitive advantage customers need.


How mature is SAP HANA?

SAP HANA is 10 years old and has tens of thousands of customers around the world. There are already thousands of customers running production SAP S/4HANA systems, all on the SAP HANA in-memory database.


How do we handle our SAP ECC customizations when we make the move to SAP S/4HANA?

The first step in any system conversion project is to run the Readiness Check Tool. Among the information provided will be any custom code adaptions that need to be done. Most customers learn that most of these adaptions are simple to do and can even be automated.


Can we deploy part of our SAP S/4HANA system on premise and part in the cloud?

SAP S/4HANA offers complete choice of deployment with consistent code line, data model, and user interface. This allows you to put some systems, such as corporate HQ, on-premise or in a private cloud while deploying other systems, such as subsidiaries, in a public cloud.


Are AI and machine learning embedded in SAP S/4HANA?

Yes. There are dozens of machine learning scenarios built into SAP S/4HANA.
