ERP Transformation to SAP S/4HANA
With Quality Function Deployment for an individual transformation roadmap
More and more companies are switching to a modern IT system architecture around the Digital Core SAP S/4HANA. Such a system change is much more than a technical upgrade. A company that wants to map its data, processes and organizational structures in a new system (Greenfield approach), meet new technological requirements and, if necessary, continue to use parts of the existing system landscape needs an individual transformation roadmap. This roadmap will ensure a comprehensive evaluation of the current situation and shows concrete decision paths.
This also applies to the Brownfield approach, i.e. the conversion of the system from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA. The SAP S/4HANA functionalities are normally only partially activated and supplemented by SAP Fiori applications.
apsolut's answer to the question of the appropriate transformation path is the apsolut decision matrix, which is based on the House of Quality methodology (part of the Quality Function Deployment). The matrix takes into account and weights all relevant decision factors, such as corporate strategy, business processes, organization and roles as well as IT strategy. The well-founded result of the matrix forms an individual system architecture with suitable products around the digital core. Depending on the initial situation (including the complexity of the actual system) and the goals of the transformation, an architecture contains additional solutions, such as SAP Ariba modules or mobile SAP Fiori applications. The apsolut recommendation also addresses the Greenfield and Brownfield approaches.
