The Benefits of S/4HANA

S/4HANA is the future of every business running on SAP. Moving to S/4HANA is an event unlike any other experience. If executed correctly, your business will realise the rewards of a leap forward in both hardware, software technology and business performance.

Why Capgemini?

We have the experience to advise you on which method is the best approach for your business. We have customers implementing S/4HANA for the first time, have re-implemented using the Greenfield methodology or converted from SAP ECC systems to S/4HANA, leveraging SAP’s Brownfield or certified partner tools. With our extensive experience using methodologies such as SAP Activate, implementation accelerators, cloud automation scripts, partner tools for ECC system scans and S/4HANA conversions partner software, Capgemini can put your mind at rest.

Benefits of S/4HANA


S/4HANA runs exclusively on SAP HANA, SAP’s flagship in-memory computing database. This means that programmes like S/4HANA can take full advantage of the outstanding transaction, processing and reporting speeds native to SAP HANA, as opposed to other, slower options. Functions that usually run in minutes take a matter of seconds, allowing you to achieve optimal business performance and a higher level of customer care using real-time data.


S/4HANA is the most user-friendly, flexible SAP solution to hit the market, with an end user interface completely driven by SAP Fiori (known for its high-quality, simplified user experience). This means that organisations are able to create bespoke, understandable business insights based on real-time data from anywhere they choose – a significant advantage when it comes to making important business decisions.


If there was one word to sum up SAP S/4HANA, it would be simplicity. With this highly streamlined solution, businesses are able to manage their IT landscape effortlessly, in a manner never seen before. When coupled with business wide cloud adoption, SAP S/4HANA centralises and unifies hardware and network resources for ultimate business performance.

Reduced Cost of Ownership

While it might not seem so on the surface, the adoption of S/4HANA is actually an incredibly cost-efficient solution. This is primarily because with it, businesses are able to combine the analytical and transactional capabilities of multiple different systems into a single solution – reducing overheads and providing centralised control. Removing the need for manual report collection from these different sources saves time and effort while providing far more accurate, detailed results.


In the current climate, cloud adoption is at the forefront of technological innovation within business, and SAP S/4HANA is one of the primary driving forces behind it. The cloud has opened up a wide platform for different software vendors to experiment and provide a range of innovative products for business use, all of which expands the vast capabilities of S/4HANA.

What we do:

Migration Methodologies: When migrating to SAP S/4HANA, you have two standard options: Greenfield’s or Brownfield’s. However, Capgemini provides a third option. The third or Capgemini’s hybrid option provides additional functionality such as data cleansing, data transformation, realignment of organisational structures and the ability to select what data is migrated. 

Capgemini will assist you in determining the best approach and migration path based or your road map from the readiness assessment, risk profile and end state required. 

So which migration method is most appropriate for your organisation?

S/4HANA Readiness Assessment:  In order to maximise your success in the SAP S/4HANA environment, you need to assess where your business stands in terms of data modernisation and the underlying systems that support it. 

Capgemini specialises in providing S/4HANA readiness assessments and interface scans utilising our experience, SAP knowledge, in-house developed capability and partner tools. 

The readiness assessment will provide customers with a clear road map to align your business aspirations and technological capabilities. 

Our interface scanner enables clients to automatically analyse and document interfaces and helps you to identify and eliminate unused interfaces. 

So how ready are you?

Working closely with your organisation, Capgemini will assist you in developing an agile and clear migration path to successfully migrate or upgrade your legacy system to S/4HANA. Capgemini will deliver a step-by-step approach, detailing each phase of the project.
