SAP S/4HANA New Implementation

Move with the Greenfield Approach to SAP S/4HANA

You need a fresh start for your business? This transition path is for everyone who wants to create new processes on a green field.

What Is a New Implementation?

A New Implementation means that you start your journey with SAP S/4HANA on a lush, “green field.” The possibilities are wide open and you can create and shape an IT landscape that fits your company best. Regardless of your current ERP system (SAP or non-SAP), you can start on SAP S/4HANA with an initial data load (data migration).

Shape a landscape that fits your requirements.

Why Should I Choose a SAP S/4HANA New Implementation?

1. Because You Can Move Parallel to Your Daily Business.

As the New Implementation is a phased approach, it entails that you can keep your daily routine throughout the transition – without a big bang. During the transition period, a multi-system landscape is established for moving to SAP S/4HANA as smooth as possible.

2. Because You Can Start also from Non-SAP Systems.

A New Implementation of SAP S/4HANA does not require an existing SAP ERP system.

3. Because You Can Initiate a Fresh Start for Your Business.

With a New Implementation of SAP S/4HANA, you have the opportunity to escape from your current complex or outdated system landscape. Let inconsistent data and old processes become a problem of the past. Create new processes or harmonize your old ones – it’s your choice within this flexible approach.

In addition to setting up new processes, you can establish a new organizational structure as well as a new business model to become a digital, modern, and data-driven business.

4. Because You Can Host It On-Premise or in the Cloud.

Moving to SAP S/4HANA with a New Implementation allows you to decide whether you would like to store your data on-premise or with Managed Cloud Services (at NTT DATA Business Solutions, SAP, AWS, Microsoft Azure).

Where Can I Host My SAP S/4HANA System?

When moving to SAP S/4HANA, there is the question where to host the system. If you want to host SAP S/4HANA on-premise, you have different options depending on your own effort level for maintenance you want to invest. But there are also external hosting options, learn more about our Managed Cloud Services.
