Gone are those days when enterprises relied on just collecting information!

The new need for enterprises is to experience intelligence through their systems. For this reason, SAP has innovated a worthy successor to the SAP ECC in the form of the new digital core – SAP S/4HANA. But unfortunately, SAP’s innovations are centred around SAP ECC to S/4HANA conversion, and many enterprises running on SAP ECC are missing out on what SAP offers now and in the future. In addition,  

Enterprises running on SAP ECC know that they will have to convert to SAP S/4HANA at the earliest to keep up with the latest technologies SAP has to offer. iQuantM offers the best SAP S/4 HANA Migration Service in the UK. 


"We work with organizations to help them understand the changes they need to make to convert to SAP S/4HANA successfully. Equally, we help them to identify existing system elements that do not need to change, helping save time and money."

SAP Implementation phases

Some organizations – for example, those running earlier versions of SAP software that have few elements that can be reused in an SAP S/4HANA environment, may elect not to convert but instead to opt for a “greenfield” installation that requires data migration from the old system into a completely new SAP S/4HANA Implementation. However, a “brownfield” conversion is a likely path for many others. 

SAP has developed on-premise, and cloud editions of SAP S/4HANA and multiple routes to conversion are feasible. Experience gleaned from hundreds of SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA Implementation servicesequips us to support clients in choosing the right option. When opting for SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition, the client maintains the software on their infrastructure.  


Alternatively, they can host SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition on a public, hybrid or privately managed cloud. 

The conversion process from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA

The transformation strategy from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA is a complex undertaking that can be achieved in several ways. The most common approach is using SAP’s conversion tool, Migration Cockpit. This tool is designed to help customers move data and functionality from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA.  


However, it is essential to note that not all SAP ECC functionality is supported in SAP S4HANA Conversion and Migration. As a result, customers must carefully evaluate what can be moved to the new system and make the necessary adjustments. 


Another important consideration is the time required for the conversion process. Depending on the size and complexity of the SAP ECC system, the SAP S4HANA system conversioncan take several months or even years. Therefore, it is crucial to plan for this extended downtime and ensure that the business can continue operations when you Migrate to SAP S/4 HANA. 


Finally, it is essential to note that the conversion process is not a one-time event. Customers must continue to invest in SAP ECC to S/4HANA Migration to take advantage of the latest innovations and features.
