before you start: important preparations:
New ERP technologies are an essential element of digital transformation and a prerequisite for central future technologies. But it is not enough with the S / 4 Business Suite alone. In many companies we still find a heterogeneous process and system landscape. Without process reengineering and standardization of master data and value flows, the investments made in ERP technologies alone will not contribute to the successful implementation of the company's digitization strategy. The introduction of SAP S / 4HANA brings some significant changes. Companies should therefore be well prepared for the change. There are a number of preparatory activities that can already be implemented in legacy SAP systems, regardless of the time of the SAP S / 4HANA implementation, in order to facilitate the subsequent changeover. In the field of finance, these are: - conversion to the new general ledger (NEW GL) - conversion to the new asset accounting as well - Introduction of business partners. The introduction of business partners should also be used to clean up and harmonize existing master data, such as customers, vendors, customers or suppliers. Brownfield migration requires Unicode and ERP 6.0 EHP7. Corresponding upgrades can already be made now. In the area of ​​RICEFs4, corresponding analyzes on SAP S / 4HANA capability can be performed.
