The Journey to SAP S/4HANA: Key lessons from PwC research

SAP has been migrating customers to SAP S/4HANA and announced a deadline for anyone remaining on older versions of its software, with support for all older SAP iterations ending in 2027. The message is clear: Make the shift to SAP S/4HANA soon, or be left behind.

The challenge is that transformation with SAP S/4HANA is more than just flipping a switch. It’s a complex undertaking that requires planning and forethought before the first tactical steps are taken.
Organizations must begin by evaluating the health of their current operating model and their readiness to make the move. Key questions must be answered, including: 

  • What are your strategic goals for your business
  • How might SAP S/4HANA potentially enable those goals?
  • What are potential barriers to your success, and associated mitigating actions you can take?
  • How prepared are you to transform?
  • Do you understand the best practices involved with this migration?
  • How fully do you understand the benefits of making the move to SAP S/4HANA? 


(All of these questions are critical whether you’re building upon an existing SAP ecosystem or installing SAP S/4HANA from scratch—or some combination of the two.)

To help understand the context of these questions, PwC developed the S/4 Journey Guide, a survey-based assessment that helps clients quickly determine how they can use SAP S/4HANA to reimagine their business’s operating model and drive value creation. We polled hundreds of clients to determine and analyze the likely outcomes, barriers, and operating model component readiness work involved with this transformation with SAP S/4HANA.
