Globeteam can be your technology partner in a SAP S/4HANA migration

Many companies are currently planning when and how to carry out their SAP S/4HANA migration. SAP has already announced that support for older versions of their ERP systems will cease in 2027. That might sound like a long time away but considering the complexity and resource consumption of such a project, as well as the competition it will create for available SAP and technology talent, now is the time to get started on the work.

As a consultancy firm, Globeteam has the experience and capacity to guide you safely and efficiently through a SAP S/4HANA migration, especially when it comes to the technological challenges and tasks that are a mandatory part of the transformation. We have appointed experienced SAP expert Christian Veng to head a team of specialists assigned to help companies through their transition. As your SAP technology partners, Christian and the team can carry out the many tasks needed to ensure a good implementation process with continuous progress. You can choose how much you want Globeteam to be involved with the project. You might want us to take on project management responsibility and manage the process from beginning to end, or you might prefer to just purchase spot services and retain full control of the project.

In this video, Christian explains how we can help costumers build bridge between the SAP disciplines and the IT disciplines to ensure a good SAP S/4HANA transformation.

Who will manage the internal tasks in your SAP S/4HANA migration?

In general, most companies that are facing a SAP S/4HANA migration tend to focus solely on the business gains that it will bring. They organise a project around the SAP migration itself together with a SAP implementation partner. The SAP implementation partner addresses the tasks that need to be handled by highly specialised SAP consultants with insight into how to implement specific business processes within the SAP platform, for example in terms of finance, production, or sales. However, while this is an important element of the migration, if you look in more detail at the overall set of tasks to complete for a successful SAP S/4HANA migration, this only covers around half of the actual work tasks and challenges.

The remaining half of the work tasks includes everything that is centred around the existing systems in the existing IT landscape, which is left for the companies themselves to address, ensuring they are delivered on time and to the right standard. Globeteam can help you define these tasks, incorporate them into the SAP S/4HANA roadmap and execute them. 

These tasks might include:
IT architecture

We help design and set up your new IT infrastructure. Including: how the central and, in most cases, cloud-based SAP S/4HANA solution will be integrated into your IT landscape; how your employees, clients and suppliers access the SAP S/4HANA solution via their different devices and systems; and, how you manage the security that needs to be built into the new IT architecture.

Integrations and

We build the integrations and interfaces that make it possible to exchange data across your IT solutions and the new SAP S/4HANA platform. This includes development within your existing systems as well as in your existing integration platform.

IT and information security

Your IT security model will need to be expanded as part of the SAP S/4HANA transition, owing to the complexity of a brand-new SAP platform, the switch to cloud and increased digital integration in most business processes.

Data management

We help organise your data within and outside of SAP S/4HANA by designing the right data governance structure to manage such issues as how data is created or loaded in the new platform, where they will be stored, how they are accessed, how they are shared, etc.

In addition to helping with the more tangible and technical challenges in a SAP S/4HANA migration, we can also help your organisation when it comes to adopting the new solutions and the new IT setup. The move to SAP S/4HANA will be a big change from the way in which companies use, maintain and run their current SAP solution.
