What is SAP S/4HANA?

SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) is a next-generation enterprise system built to

drive value across lines of business and industries with the ambition to simplify. SAP S/4HANA is

built on the SAP HANA in-memory platform and offers cloud, on-premise and hybrid

deployment options to provide maximum choice to customers. With SAP S/4HANA, SAP

implements a vision of simplifying business models, business decisions, business processes, the

user experience and the IT landscape through a roadmap of cloud-first enterprise resource

planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), supplier relationship management

(SRM), supply chain management (SCM), and product lifecycle management (PLM) innovations.

Accenture can help organizations relying on any of these components to run their business, and

serious about winning in the digital economy, to assess the value of S/4HANA.
Overview

Against a backdrop of an increasingly digital, networked, and complex business landscape,

enterprises need the combined power of simplification and innovation to drive competitive

advantage. SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA (SAP S/4HANA) is designed to serve as a digital

business foundation, helping enterprises predict consumer preferences and business outcomes,

and drive digital transformation. SAP S/4HANA helps companies simplify, manage, and run the

enterprise by connecting people, networks, and systems. To unlock real business value and

ensure rapid and smooth implementation of SAP S/4HANA, enterprises need the right partner

Companies need to upgrade their digital platform, so that technology fosters business growth,

instead of hindering responsiveness. SAP S/4HANA is designed to address these requirements.

However, to commit the time and resources needed to migrate to SAP S/4HANA, companies

need the assurance of success. Lack of the right experience, expertise, and supporting assets is

often the biggest challenge here.

Our SAP S/4 HANA implementation, integration, and migration solutions are catalysts to drive

digital transformation, simplify operations, sense and respond to consumer preferences, and

identify business opportunities. We integrate SAP S/4 HANA with collaboration tools to

streamline core functions including finance, manufacturing, sourcing, distribution, and sales.
WHAT ARE THE PRE-REQUISITIES FOR A SUCCESSFUL S/4HANA IMPLEMENTATION FOR

EXISTING SAP ERP CUSTOMERS?

Successful S4 HANA implementation occurs only if the end user’s IT team is ready to deal with
the project and the resulting change management. Based on our experience with our S/4HANA
customers, the following are some of the key project considerations which customers should
look at before starting their S4 HANA implementation:

Our Solution

Clean up of data
Cleaning up the production database through data deletions and archiving will help end
customers reduce the new HANA hardware costs and system downtime.

Review of Custom Codes


Review existing custom ABAP codes if you have an SAP ERP system, and remove codes no
longer in use.

Right-Sizing of hardware
Sizing the HANA hardware for the new target system is important. It should be a meaningful
exercise taking into account all factors instead of being a general rule of thumb.

Leveraging of Fiori apps


Fiori apps are one of the best benefits you could get from S/4 HANA. But to use this, a
combination of technical and change management challenges need to be overcome. Create a
comprehensive change management plan in the pre-conversion phase to avoid any end-user
hassles during UAT phase

Checking System Functionality


Check the SAP ERP system for business functions, industry solutions & add-ons to ensure there
is a valid path for S/4HANA conversion. If there is no valid path then the conversion is
prevented.

Creation of Training Plans

Create S/4HANA training plans for business analysts, super users, functional analysts,
developers, security teams, and basis technical teams.
Cybertech helps digital enterprises adopt SAP S/4 HANA via:
 Maturity assessment, diagnostics, and strategy workshops
 Solution implementation, systems integration, and testing
 Migration from legacy SAP and non-SAP ERP / SCM business suites
 Data visualization and interactive analytics
 System maintenance and support services
The above activities will help you create a comprehensive pre-conversion plan for your
organization.
Cybertech Systems & Software helps companies accelerate their SAP S/4HANA implementation
with custom migration recommendations and the full spectrum of support services. By
orchestrating a smooth rollout of the in-memory platform, we enhance your data analytics
capabilities, ultimately boosting customer satisfaction and accelerating business innovation.

Implementation of Simple Finance

Deploying this alternative in-memory functionality for SAP ERP customers on SAP HANA, you can
take advantage of a single logical document as the common basis for regulatory and managerial
accounting. The resulting inherent consistency between FI and CO eliminates the need for time-
wasting and error-prone manual reconciliation. All aggregation and transaction processing is now
performed on-the-fly with SAP HANA Live views. Imagine what can be done now in your business
as new capabilities are understood and activated from real-time reporting to near real-time
processes all through a simplified and streamlined user experience.
