ROADMAP TO SAP S/4HANA FOR THE LIFE SCIENCES

Validated (Re-)Implementation
or System Conversion?

ROADMAP TO SAP S/4HANA FOR THE LIFE SCIENCES

Since 1996, DHC has successfully implemented a large number of SAP ERP projects and has developed into an industry specialist for the life sciences (especially the pharmaceutical industry and medical technology). We are also at your side as a competent consulting partner for SAP S/4HANA. To this end, we offer you a S/4HANA roadmap that supports you in particular in decision-making and strategy development for your re- or new implementation (greenfield approach) or system conversion (brownfield approach).
As an industry expert and specialist for the validation of SAP systems, we always keep an eye on the impact of the chosen migration path on the validation of the SAP system and support you with an appropriate validation method, our IT compliance framework, documentation content and tools.

SAP S/4HANA MIGRATION TYPES

With the greenfield approach, the brownfield approach and the landscape transformation, SAP customers have various technical and conceptual approaches to migrating their SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. While the greenfield approach means a complete reinstallation of the system, the brownfield approach is about conversion and the landscape transformation is about a selective migration of the systems. Which type of migration is used depends on various criteria, such as the customer’s existing IT system landscape, the desired degree of standardisation or individualisation of the system or the decision for an on-premises or cloud operating model. Each approach has advantages and disadvantages that should be carefully weighed against each other.

We support you on your way to SAP S/4HANA and work with you to develop the roadmap that best suits your company.

OUR PARTNER NETWORK: THE LIFE SCIENCES ALLIANCE

In order to be able to offer you pragmatic, cost-optimised and reliable services and IT solutions when switching to SAP S/4HANA, we and the All for One Group have bundled our SAP Life Sciences service portfolio. Since 2020, we have been offering pharmaceutical and medical technology companies industry-specific SAP solutions with the “Life Sciences Alliance” and, above all, a roadmap and a coordinated approach for the new implementation, system conversion and validation of SAP S/4HANA systems.

With the Alliance, we are at your side as a competent and experienced industry expert for all SAP topics in the life sciences – from consulting and system integration to application management and hosting.

THE LIFE SCIENCES ALLIANCE’S PROCESS MODEL FOR MAKING AN INFORMED DECISION TO SWITCH TO SAP S/4HANA

Together with you, we develop a SAP S/4HANA roadmap for your company and provide you with an experienced project manager.

We start with a pre-check workshop for a comprehensive analysis of your initial situation and infrastructure.

This is followed by the Initial and Readiness Workshops and the Evaluation Workshop to develop a custom-fit roadmap for your individual transformation process – towards a target IT architecture tailored to your company, with SAP S/4HANA at its centre as the intelligent core.

We explain how you need to adapt your existing ERP validation method for S/4HANA and which validation activities are necessary during the transformation project.
