The role of OPEX professionals in enabling S/4 Hana transformation

Organisations face an exciting opportunity as they move to SAP’s S/4HANA system. The software offers a robust platform for transformation. Customers can work with larger data sets, deploy in different environments, and simplify their processes. Migration is complex though, and most customers need help fitting their way of working into the new system.

Make your S/4HANA migration run smoothly

BPM gives SAP customers the structure and functions they need for an efficient migration. It helps to identify the most critical processes to target early on in the migration project. It also makes it easier for project managers to conduct gap analyses, highlighting the areas they must work on to align their existing processes with an S/4HANA environment. Functions like these help to remove risk from complex SAP migration projects.

Process repository and central object management tools also drive efficiencies into migration projects. They enable business analysts and process modellers to create process and business assets as well as data stored in a single place. The ability to reuse these components creates consistency and efficiencies. The same process model may have a slightly altered view depending on the end-user (ranging from the Development Team running the test scripts to Operational staff being trained on the new system).

Our team has years of experience helping clients to gather and analyse process data to help lay solid foundations for S/4HANA migrations.
