Digitalization of the entire business

SAP S/4HANA helps enterprises act in forward-looking fashion and react quickly to new requirements: with a lean, change-friendly architecture, a sample data model, an intuitive, customizable SAP Fiori interface, and AI and machine learning functions. In addition, there are specific best practices for numerous industries, from the automobile industry to public utilities.

”When selecting the partners valantic and SNP for this complex S/4HANA preparation project, our concern was to find people with a comprehensive technical and specialized understanding in order to ensure knowledge transfer between IT and the specialist departments. This paid off over the course of the project.“

Cloud or on-prem – we will find the right operating model

SAP S/4HANA is available in both the classic (on-prem) model for operation on your own servers as well as in the cloud; the latter in two variants: on the one hand, the highly standardized SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud solutions, and on the other hand, the private cloud edition with extensive customizing and expansion options. Hybrid scenarios are also possible, where parts of the business processes are shifted to the cloud and others are operated in the company’s own computer center on-premise. All scenarios have particular advantages and are appropriate for companies in various phases along their development path.

We will be happy to advise you on which variant best fits your company. Contact us!

The right approach for a successful transformation

The migration is possible with various transformation approaches

Greenfield Approach

With the greenfield approach, the system is built from scratch; all flows are considered and then standardized to the greatest possible extent based on best practices.
Advantage: Complex, individualized ERP systems are replaced with a lean and agile solution – for an ERP new start with optimized processes.

Brownfield Conversion

With the brownfield conversion, the existing ERP system is converted step-by-step and initially receives a technical upgrade to SAP S/4HANA.
Advantage: This approach requires less time and fewer resources; proven processes and structures can be retained in an innovative environment.

valantic extended brownfield methodology

Analogous to the classic brownfield conversion, we offer the valantic extended brownfield methodology.
Advantage: Our team works with the customer before and during the conversion to identify sensible optimization and standardization measures, which can be designed, planned, and implemented at the customer’s pace. (Ansatzpunkt, um ein Brownfield-Whitepaper zu verlinken, Entwurf liegt vor, muss um Projekt-Abstract Gira ergänzt werden)

Hybride Ansätze

Hybrid approaches combine elements of greenfield and brownfield. These include the bluefield approach, which separates data and systems. The relevant data from the old system is selected with special tools (selective data transition) and loaded into the empty target system. This can be a newly established SAP S/4HANA system or the source system on SAP S/4HANA.

Are you seeking the right transformation approach for your company? We’ll be happy to help you determine the right scenario.

The SAP quotation package for the cloud

In order to assist companies with the transformation to the cloud, SAP has put together two quotation packages: RISE with SAP and GROW with SAP. RISE with SAP is appropriate for existing customers who want to change to an SAP S/4HANA Private Cloud or Public Cloud solution. In addition to the cloud software, the bundle includes other applications and services, in particular entry-level packages for SAP Signavio and SAP Business Network, as well as a credit for the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP). GROW with SAP is for new customers and medium-sized companies, including those that are planning an ERP implementation at a subsidiary. The focus is on the SAP S/4HANA Public Cloud, with the addition of implementation services and the SAP BTP.

We’ll be happy to advise you about which of these two bundles is right for your company. Contact us!

Our SAP S/4HANA Roadmap Assessment

For a successful SAP S/4HANA project, companies need a clear target image, the right guiderails, and a comprehensive roadmap. That’s why we assist our customers with new implementation or transformation of their ERP system with our SAP S/4HANA Roadmap Assessment. It is built according to the toolbox principle and can be adapted to individual circumstances and project progress. Using tool-supported analyses and proven workshop formats, we work with our customers to define essential project guiderails such as the schedule, migration approach, project, organization, and work estimates early on. In addition, we gain numerous insights that can flow into the project planning. At the same time, our Roadmap Assessment enables an initial entry into the SAP Activate methodology, which especially simplifies and speeds up S/4HANA implementations.

International standardization with our roll out services

The advantages of SAP Template roll outs: International standardization with our roll out services

An SAP S/4HANA transformation offers companies the opportunity to standardize and simplify their business processes company wide. The results are significantly lower process costs and less maintenance and administration work for the system environment. With SAP roll outs according to the template approach, globally applicable process standards can be structured and introduced efficiently to additional subsidiaries and local companies. The success factors for template roll outs include clear template governance in the project methodology and organization and solid knowledge of the local requirements, especially in the financial sector. With our SAP roll out services, we assist companies comprehensively and expertly with the international standardization and simplification of their processes. This way, our customers profit from the valantic Legal Requirements Library, a collection of country-specific requirements based on our experiences from numerous international roll out projects.
