APJ – Why Automation is Crucial When Adopting SAP S/4HANA, a case study

Manage, align and synchronize changes between ECC and S/4HANA.

Many local and global enterprises want to leverage the benefits of S/4HANA but they simply can’t afford business disruption, so embarking on the transition is a daunting prospect with a number of different options. When one of the largest SAP users in the world – a Consumer Packaged Goods company with a highly complex, distributed ECC landscape – decided to embark on the move to S/4HANA they knew it would be a major challenge.

In order to ensure the greatest speed, safety and control, the company selected a variety of automation tools as part of a ‘best practice’ approach to managing each element of their multi-year migration project. One of the key problems to solve was how to ensure that ECC and S/4HANA systems remained aligned during the period when both were supporting the business.

Watch this webinar to learn:
