2021 Priorities for SAP S/4HANA, Cloud, and Infrastructure

Over the past year, organizations have faced the challenges of dealing with a virtual work environment, building a new supply chain, and determining if and when their plans for business and enterprise transformation can or should continue. While many have had to reset and re-prioritize projects, most are now starting to move forward with plans they may have put on hold. Cloud and infrastructure as well as the move to SAP S/4HANA continue to be top areas of investment, both from a financial and from a skills perspective. This interactive panel will inspire you to think differently about your own 2021 priorities as you:

  • Learn what’s topping the agenda when it comes to business transformation, SAP S/4HANA and the move to the cloud
  • Discover what actions are critical for organizations as they navigate the aftermath of the events of 2020 that are still impactful in 2021
  • Find out what cloud technologies represent planned areas of investment for organizations in 2021
  • Understand how SAP S/4HANA adoption is changing coming out of 2020 and what is being planned around infrastructure for those deployments

How to move to SAP S/4HANA in your cloud

With SAP S/4HANA your business can excel. But with a complex and critical platform it’s crucial to get there quickly, minimize risk, and gain the agility that your business requires. HPE has the deep experience that comes from migrating over 1500 customers, and HPE infrastructure powers more than twice as many SAP customers as other vendors. And with 70% of SAP HANA customers looking to keep their workloads on-premise, we will show you how you can bring the cloud to SAP HANA at the edge, in a co-location, or in your own datacenter.

In this session you will:

  • Learn about the migration best practices that HPE has developed
  • Understand what it takes to run SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA in your own environment
  • Explore options for running SAP solutions in a consumption-based model

As SAP customers consider how and when to approach their SAP S/4HANA migrations, they have many decisions to make and myriad options of how to architect their landscapes. A major choice they need to make is regarding what data to keep on premise and what can move to the cloud.

There are many factors or reasons for this, such as data sovereignty, security and compliance, flexible pay-per-use models and the need to scale fast if needed. This session explores the topic of hybrid cloud options and reveals how HPE builds a cloud that comes to you.
Topics include:
- A look at the various SAP S/4HANA hybrid cloud deployment models available to companies looking for a mixed environment

As SAP companies begin to move their data and processes to SAP S/4HANA, the migration can be a very complex affair. Depending on how many integration points and data centers involved, this complexity can increase. Companies often benefit from having a plan in place that they developed based on the experiences of others. They look to partners, such as HPE, to offer recommendations from what they have seen as successes and failures. Based on HPE's own experience moving core business processes to SAP S/4HANA, this session gives insights into how HPE and other customers consolidated many legacy data centers to few fully controlled data centers. Topics include:
- The benefits of moving to a "cloud at home" model
- An overview of the process improvements SAP customers can achieve
- Lessons learnings from organizations undergoing large SAP S/4HANA transformations
