The SAP S/4HANA greenfield approach – also referred to as a new implementation – is one of several options to start your journey to SAP S/4HANA on an unblemished, “green field”. An SAP greenfield implementation gives you the opportunity to completely shape your IT environment according to the specific requirements and purposes of your business.
For companies that are new in the market and therefore do not have an SAP ERP in place, this method is the way to go. But even corporations, which already use an SAP or non-SAP ERP system, can choose the SAP greenfield implementation for their transition.
An SAP S/4HANA greenfield approach runs in phased steps beginning with the set-up of your system and customizing all the important business processes. If you decide to replace your old ERP, an initial data load is performed with which all your required data from your legacy system gets transferred to SAP S/4HANA.
