Organizations across the globe now consider IT as a business enabler and are investing in IT transformation to accelerate core business processes and increase profitability. SAP, traditionally the epicenter of IT in any large organization, requires a very strategic and stringent approach towards modernization. Digitalization and sustainability are the key drivers for SAP transformation as businesses prioritize high performance and sustainability. 91% of organizations realize the value of sustainability as a core business objective and more than 90% of IT decision-makers say that their companies will expand their digital investments.
The SAP transformation can be mainly credited to the agility, efficiency and innovation goals set by companies in the evolving business landscape. In that pursuit, forward-looking enterprises are moving to SAP S/4HANA.
SAP S/4HANA in the spotlight
SAP S/4HANA represents a significant enterprise resource planning (ERP) software advancement. It offers a range of benefits that optimize workforce management and facilitate the deployment of new features. Around 20-30% of companies have successfully migrated to SAP S/4HANA. With the end of operations for its predecessor SAP R/3 in 2027, more companies are expected to transition to this new ERP system. The effectiveness of SAP S/4HANA has been proven in terms of cost reduction and business advantages. A recent survey confirmed these claims, revealing a 4% decrease in customer turnover per year. Among the 110 SAP S/4HANA customers surveyed, 37% experienced capabilities that accelerated their revenue generation, resulting in a net profit of $25.2 million. Notably, this ERP system offers numerous tangible benefits, such as increased revenue, improved customer retention, enhanced end-user productivity, boosted IT productivity and reduced expenses.
The shift to RISE with SAP
RISE with SAP S/4HANA has been widely embraced by workplaces and organizations looking to transform their operations. It allows companies to fully leverage their business potential, optimize operational costs and enhance various business processes and solutions. Although many companies have already adopted SAP S/4HANA, many remain on the outdated legacy system and are currently evaluating their migration options. Several factors come into play when determining the migration path for such customers.
- Data Sovereignty
- Industry and country regulations
- Criticality of the data
- Availability of the relevant infrastructure, e.g., datacenter in the region
