As part of the move to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition, TAPAS Migration approach helps customers to adapt current implemented solution to comply with the scope and data structures of SAP S/4HANA.

Green Field Implementation

A Greenfield S/4HANA implementation makes you fit for the future

At the end of 2014, SAP announced that their core ERP solutions (ECC, …) will only be supported until 2025. This currently triggers many decision-makers to design their organization’s strategy to move to SAP S/4HANA. One of this strategy’s key components is to decide how to implement SAP S/4HANA In this article, you will learn why and how we implemented SAP S/4HANA with the Greenfield Approach. These lessons-learned and best-practices will help you when you decide to adopt the S/4HANA Greenfield Approach at your organization as well.

How to implement SAP S/4HANA

  1. In terms of Project Management, an implementation of S/4HANA is similar to an SAP ECC implementation. Even though there is a new database technology and there are new data structures, the general procedure to run this project has not changed that much.
  2. As traditionally done in the implementation of an ERP system, the following steps for the implementation of SAP S/4HANA are listed below:
  3. Customization of the S/4HANA system
  4. Functional testing
  5. Two integration tests, with  the integration of all subsidiaries. We conducted these tests within the individual modules and processes (e.g. FI, CO, PS,  etc). Once this was done, we did cross-functional tests. These are tests of a universal process through all modules and processes (i.e. from sales, through the project execution, to project controlling).
  6. User Acceptance Test: our focus was to depict the processes, and to integrate individual modules and departments.
  7. Migration test.
