Why Move To S/4HANA?

When Should You Move To S/4HANA?
As ECC will be out of date by 2027, businesses should start planning their migration as soon as possible. Because based on our experience, for a medium sized company, it takes several months of preparation and up to a year for implementation and further improvements.
Postponing your migration will also give you higher risk as there will be more data to be migrated, and consequently takes a longer time and will definitely be more expensive. Aside from that, with many companies globally starting their migration to S/4HANA, or as we call it the migration wave, there’s a chance that there will be a shortage of skilled consultants. Our advice is to start now and make sure you have access to the appropriate skills you need.
