Let's explore SAP S/4HANA migration vs landscape transformation vs new implementation.

Change is the only thing that cannot be changed. We shouldn’t protect ourselves from inevitable happenings that might overtake our lives. Digital transformation is an inevitable happening. The world is going to function the way it would. Digital transformation cannot be avoided in world where we live. Many businesses have had similar thoughts when they were planning to move on to SAP S/4HANA migration vs implementation. To excel operationally, we need to make it quite affordable, orchestrate high-end payroll, procurement and supplier processes.


SAP S/4HANA has helped several businesses. The first ever important step towards digital transformation for enterprise would be to move on to latest technologies. But it’s common to have plenty of doubts regarding implementation or the recommended tools for SAP S/4HANA migration.


SAP S/4HANA offers three different options while adopting SAP S/4HANA:

  • New Implementation
  • Conversion
  • Landscape Transformation


SAP S/4HANA Migration

New Implementation

New Implementation is meant for customers who work on a large distributed system landscape. We have two different options meant for customers who introduce themselves to the SAP S/4HANA for the very first time. Every business leader has to explain, discuss and settle on the answers for these questions:

  • Would you like to enhance all your solutions?
  • Does your system fulfill all the prerequisites?
  • Do you prefer an overhaul or a business roll-out?
  • Do you need to reimagine your ERP system?
  • Are you satisfied with your current system?


When you go with the new implementation approach, you can move on to Greenfield implementation method. Through ‘mapping and matching’, start retaining end-users on new processes when you migrate the master data on a new designed system.

S/4HANA Conversion/ Migration

S/4HANA conversion journey has been divided into conversion, pre-conversion, and post-conversion phases. Let’s align with all the phases through S/4HANA journey.

You can find an issue with every project phase. During S/4HANA Conversion, we convert the system as per the standards of the new SAP S/4HANA world. You might need to work on adapting to new validation, business process and so on. During the final phase involving post-conversion, we perform follow-up activities to ensure that we leverage SAP S/4HANA to maintain our business.

These are the reasons why you need to consider migration:

  • If you have already invested in an SAP ECC system, you would want to migrate the same system configurations to SAP S/4HANA
  • It is quite faster than different methods
  • You can preserve every enterprise data and reach it on SAP S/4HANA
  • You can protect your investment since you need not start implementation from the scratch
  • Migration’s change management is quite limited than implementation
  • Get innovative capabilities with industry-specific business
  • Add cloud integration for AI, IoT, SaaS applications and much more

When you think about S/4HANA migration, it involves ECC to S/4HANA conversion. In the case of New implementation, it’s all about a new system with user acceptance testing and requirement gathering. With Landscape transformation, you integrate multiple SAP systems in a new SAP landscape with on-premise and cloud solutions.
