Effective Transition to S/4HANA: Key Steps and Strategies

A transition to S/4HANA requires more than IT. After all, it's about adding value to the business. We are happy to share the ingredients for our success approach with you. 

Build the foundation with SAP Activate

SAP has developed a proven successful standard. We therefore follow the SAP Activate phases: Discover, Prepare, Explore, Realize, Deploy and Run

Discover the Case for Change for your business.

Strategic ambitions require a clear direction. Therefore, first sharply define the reasons for a move to S/4HANA, and do that with business and IT. Experience shows that for this you need a solid, substantive sparring partner. We provide inspiration, show you all the possibilities and ask the critical questions. In this way, we ensure that you put together exactly the right car. We do this in a short and powerful Discovery process.

Work on change management from the get-go

A successful implementation requires more than IT. Therefore, pay attention to the 'people' component in the project approach from the start, in addition to platform and processes. For example, we developed the proven successful Simply Change approach. This allows you to keep a grip on the acceptance of the change, which reduces the total project costs and risks.

Learn from best practices with fit-to-standard

The new reality in IT is standardization wherever possible. We consider the approach from best practices and guide you to the standard. There is always room for customization, but only if it contributes to the business case. This guarantees efficient processes and saves valuable implementation time.

Enrich the approach with unique accelerators

We accelerate the approach and increase results even further with a unique set of McCoy accelerators. A few examples:

  • SAP Signavio: Our transformation platform where all parties involved see the process architecture and interdependencies.

  • SMART Re-use: This method is an alternative to Greenfield and Brownfield approaches. We continue to use the gems that have already been successfully invested in in the past. We adjust the bugs and customization that are now getting in the way of the process. In addition, we add what is needed for the newest technological capabilities.

  • SMART Data Platform for data migrations.

  • SMART Finance

  • Intelligent Logistics . A unique total solution for companies looking to future-proof the entire logistics chain.

Keep driving for value, even after go-live

After the go-live, we continue to follow along with our customers. After all, after implementation, it really starts for them.
