Written by

Table of contents

SAP S/4 HANA is one of the most technologically cutting-edge ERP systems available on the market, enabling enterprise organizations to operate seamlessly and leverage speed, context, and data accessibility. This ERP system is known for paving the way for future innovation and development. SAP is currently pushing its customers with end of life legacy systems to migrate to S/4HANA as early as possible.

Many companies will move to S/4HANA because of its ability to provide unparalleled access to information, its simplification of core processes that results in less maintenance, improved user experience, and freeing up human resources to focus back on innovative work.

To ensure that everything is done correctly and to make the most of both the migration process and the potential of this platform, working with an experienced partner is strongly advised. You must complete a thorough assessment of current SAP partners to support an implementation project’s success. They should possess in-depth knowledge of and experience working with SAP systems. Make a note of those who are conscious of the value of quality assurance, testing, and the use of test automation.

Working with the wrong partner can lead to subpar project delivery, higher up-front expenses, and change management issues. We've compiled a list of top consultants with teams of fully qualified and accredited IT professionals who can help ensure success with SAP S/4HANA implementation.

Evaluating SAP Implementation Partners

Selecting the correct SAP S/4HANA partner is crucial to fully utilize and benefit from your new platform. Many accredited consultants offer SAP implementation services, so the selection process can take a while.

You should focus on partners with the right approach for your organization by reviewing each partner's specific qualifications and getting a sense of their strategy. The following elements should be present in SAP implementation services:

  • Organizational change management
  • Risk management
  • Quality assurance
