Does your business need a fresh start? If you need to create new processes from scratch, greenfield approach is ideal for your transition. Build an IT infrastructure that best suits your needs.
When you select the New Implementation path, you can make a fresh start and launch your SAP S/4HANA on the “greenfield.” This means you have the opportunity to look into your needs and to design your IT landscape accordingly. Whatever your existing ERP system is (SAP or non-SAP), you can start anew and launch SAP S/4HANA with an initial data load through data migration.
New Implementation process is carried out in phases, which means you can maintain your daily routine as you prepare for transition. Systems are not shut down entirely. As you proceed phase by phase you have parallel systems operating and this enables a smooth transition to SAP S/4HANA.
Your existing system can be SAP or non-SAP. A New Implementation of SAP S/4HANA can be planned in either situation.
You can remove your complex or outdated IT system by employing the New Implementation path for transition to SAP S/4HANA. As you make a fresh start, you will no longer have inconsistent or outdated data or processes. Thanks to the flexibility of this approach, you can build brand-new processes or renovate the old ones depending on your needs.
To become a more digital, modern and data-driven business, you can also build a new organizational structure in addition to a new business model.
When you move to SAP S/4HANA with the New Implementation approach, you can select where to host the system – on-premise or in the cloud with Managed Cloud Services (at itelligence, SAP, AWS, Microsoft Azure).
The main stages of a New Implementation are given in this flow chart. Yet this is not enough to make a sound decision. You need to know:
What benefits a New Implementation can bring?
What should be taken into consideration?
As you move your existing system to SAP S/4HANA, you will encounter the question of hosting. If you prefer to maintain your SAP S/4HANA system on-premise, you can either undertake all maintenance works or outsource some of them, depending on the investment you plan to make. However, you can also benefit from cloud-based external hosting options, such as our Managed Cloud Services.
