Challenges during the SAP S/4HANA® implementation and how you successfully master them

For a successful SAP S4/HANA introduction, a common understanding for the business and IT views must be established. A precise analysis of existing business processes allows this. Especially the end-to-end view creates a better understanding of use cases to ensure an accurate derivation of requirements for the SAP system. The interaction between the IT view and the business user view is also easy to implement thanks to the integration of the BIC Platform into SAP Solution Manager. Read more about the challenges of SAP implementation in our whitepaper and learn how best to proceed with the implementation.


  1. Challenges during the SAP S/4HANA® introduction and how you successfully master them
    Merely a third of all IT project is realized on schedule, in the planned budget and in the desired quality.

  8. How we support you
    We have learned from a multitude of SAP projects that process management in SAP S/4HANA projects can only be successful with a pragmatic approach and the inclusion of all projects members. In many projects the persons involved are confronted with an enormous amount of new knowledge and new skills. They must get to know the new SAP S/4HANA technology and often also master an agile project procedure (SCRUM). The limit of the „newly manageable“ is quickly reached. This makes it even more important that...
