Start Early

Start Early

While there are plenty of reasons to start your project early, also keep in mind that there may be things that will inevitably arise as you move through your project. For example, you may need to spend more time than expected on data migration or conversion. Or you may realize that it takes longer than anticipated to create and implement custom code for new business processes. Regardless of why projects slip, one thing’s for certain – with S/4HANA – it’s much harder (and more expensive) to re-plan later in the game if your initial timeline gets thrown off course.

In my previous article, I spoke about how ECC can be better transformed to S/4HANA and what are the key steps to look at before even starting it. In this article, we would deeper into the SAP transformation journey and focus more on how to start and prepare the baseline before embarking on the journey.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
