For companies who currently deploy SAP ERP, the move to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management should at least be part of medium-term planning, since a migration to SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management will become necessary in the foreseeable future.
In the SAP Activate ‘Realise’ phase, a distinction is made between the following migration scenarios:
- System conversion
Once you have chosen DHC as your implementation partner, we work with you to create the blueprint on the basis of your customer requirements specification and our best practice process models.
If you do business in a regulated sector, we ensure that the necessary validation activities are already considered as part of project planning. At DHC, we do not view implementation and validation as two separate projects during rollout but complete them instead hand-in-hand: this cuts costs and improves coordination – so that you can reap the benefits.
Our customers in the pharmaceuticals and medical technology industries face a choice in terms of their system’s operating model – cloud or on-premise – since they not only have to maintain the model deployed but must also ensure its validation. With an on-premise rollout (i.e. a local install), S/4HANA Enterprise Management undergoes ‘conventional’ validation. If you opt for the cloud variant, a number of specifics must then be taken into account when validating cloud computing systems – particularly in the life sciences. While the company delegates its responsibility for operating the system to the cloud provider, the responsibility for quality is always borne by the cloud service client.
