SAP S/4HANA Migration

Let SAP S/4HANA system conversion consultants from Expertum fill you in:

"Customers who cannot convert due to the status of their existing system are rare. We have seen customers going greenfield because they used functionality that was no longer available due to the “principle of one”. This is why the readiness check is such a crucial tool as it indicates whether used add-ons and activated business functions will still exist after the conversion, and what to do if they are not. Apart from functional or technical reasons, businesses might also go greenfield because their business has changed so much since they implemented SAP ERP that a reimplementation makes sense."
