Removing risk from your upgrade to SAP S/4HANA.
Accelerate your migration to SAP's next-generation ERP software suite SAP S/4HANA with Sogeti. SAP launched the on-premise version of S/4HANA in 2015, followed by the cloud version in 2017. It is now focusing all key feature development of the digital SAP core on S/4HANA.
What does this mean for current and future SAP customers? Maintenance on the old core, SAP ECC/SAP ERP, will end in 2025. This means that SAP customers will have to migrate to S/4HANA before 2025.
Our TCoE is organized into a functional Test Factory, Test Automation Factory and Test Data Management Factory. This factory model enables us to standardize processes and industralize our assets to bring gains in efficiency and reduction in efforts and costs.
Typically, we start a S/4HANA Business Assurance assignment with an assesment of a client's test process and test automation maturity using our Test Process Improvement (TPI®NEXT) methodology. Our approach comprises of :
1. Evaluate: We evaluate the application landscape, the SAP S/4HANA program schedule and delivery milestones, integration and architecture and data flow requirements, business view of key program outcomes, key stakeholders, vendor ecosystem, etc. This enables us to propose the right mapping of the client implementation methodology to our proven testing methodology (TMap®NEXT)
2. Benchmark: We offer a view of the client's QA or testing maturity and benchmark it with the sector (e.g. Retail, Manufacturing, Telecom) baseline that we maintain. This also allows us to tailor a client-specific test strategy and solution.
3. Testing as a Service: In close alignment with our client we then select elements from our services menu and establish Testing as a Service to support the migration to S/4HANA.
Moving to S/4HANA is not a straightforward 1:1 migration. It includes some major technological and functional changes:
Additionally, S/4HANA is not a standalone application. It is intended to be the digital heart of an enterprise with numerous integrations and interfaces.
We have implemented S/4HANA Business Assurance for clients in various industries. Our SAP expertise is complemented by our test tool partnerships with:
