SAP S/4HANA: the What, Why and How.

De Nieuwe Poort (Claude Debussylaan 2-8, Amsterdam)

On Thursday October 24th, the ERP & CRM Network is hosting its next SAP related Meetup!

Today, we can say that the SAP landscape has never been disrupted like this before. Since the release of the next generation business suite S/4HANA in 2014, more and more organizations realize that they need to have a digital transformation roadmap and there ERP environment should support this roadmap as a backbone. The adoption of S/4HANA in the market has grown significantly in the last 2 years and the number of customers who will migrate will only increase as we approach 2025. The year in which the support for R3 ends.


In the first part of the session you will be introduced to S/4HANA, you will see the benefits, improvements and changes compared to legacy SAP. With a special focus on the Finance and Control area. The second part of evening will focus more critical on lessons learned from recent S/4HANA greenfield on premise implementations. Finally there will be recommendations for SAP Consultants to onboard your first S/4HANA project.
