More than half the businesses that rely on SAP to run their critical operations are in a quandary. According to a 2019 survey conducted by the Americas’ SAP Users’ Group, 56% of SAP customers have plans to move to SAP S/4HANA. But when it comes to execution, they are stuck. Complex, custom SAP installations may require retooling, which increases costs and timelines. Line-of-business stakeholders may insist their essential applications cannot tolerate any disruption, and users may balk at potential changes to their interfaces and processes. Even the “low hanging fruit”—apps or databases that everyone agrees should be moved first—involve processes that are time-consuming, costly, and disruptive.

Why should the CEO—or anyone outside the IT department—care where and how SAP applications are deployed? As the financial engine that runs your business operations, SAP is inextricably tied to your digital transformation strategy. To succeed in the digital era, businesses must leverage the flexible, fast, scalable cloud.

In this report, we share practical tips on how CEOs and other senior business leaders can accelerate SAP S/4HANA migration to reap business benefits more quickly.
