Cloud Migration & Beyond: Getting the Full Value 

When it comes to SAP, the paths to success depend greatly on the specific circumstances, plans and market dynamics of each enterprise. This is creating a clear case for organizations to develop agile, future-proof SAP strategies.

As organizations modernize core IT systems to support business processes and rising customer expectations, new demands are being placed on critical ERP applications. For those with SAP, discussions around ERP have been further intensified because of the cutoff deadline in 2027 as many are being encouraged to migrate to S/4HANA.

It still remains though that businesses are holding off on this move, unsure of how to migrate and transition, which clouds to use, and how to ensure that they get the business benefits and still face critical challenges when it comes to making these moves, especially with critical solutions like SAP S/4HANA.

Over the course of this executive discussion, we will explore the:

  • Strategic options for harnessing the full power of SAP implementations through business transformation initiatives
  • Business benefits as a result of migrating and modernizing core applications like SAP
  • How to approach your hybrid environments to achieve simplification and better ROI

Please be prepared to participate in the discussion.
