Here’s what we discussed:

SAP is evolving. Customers are being asked to make some big shifts or get left behind. The push to migrate away from SAP Business Suite, including ECC, to S/4HANA and to switch from a perpetual license to a subscription license, is forcing IT leaders to make decisions – fast.

With mainstream maintenance for Business Suite 7 core applications ending in 2027, every SAP customer has important decisions to make. Many companies are still evaluating the solution. In this virtual roundtable discussion, we covered the key dates and drivers of those decisions. And get to know why it’s best to keep your options open.
Here’s what we discussed with our peers and subject matter experts from Rimini Street:
  • Powering a Business-Driven Roadmap vs.a business driven roadmap
  • Ways to approach the end of mainstream support for ECC6
  • Determining your migration plans based on business needs
  • Clarity on dates and other drivers for decision-making

Here is what we learned:

  • Moving from HEC to RISE and it’s a roller coaster ride. It’s taken almost 3 months to consolidate it into Rise and there has been a lot of mess to clean up.
  • They moved to a subscription model and trying to find the benefits.
  • They’ve told SAP that they need to be shown proof that RISE is better than HEC.
  • If you’re not careful with customization, you end up in a trap.
  • You must have a partner who understands S/4HANA inside and out.
  • From the process perspective, it’s pretty much the same. But they neglect training and neglect recording.
  • If you take the steps to optimize and automate before you make the move the S.4HANA, it will make the migration easier than if you just jump in from a legacy system.
