System Conversion - Transformation to S/4 HANA and Cloud
Application (S/4HANA) Migration: Source & Target can be on-premise, private or public cloud
In an application migration, the application layer is transformed, along with the OS and DB. There are three basic strategies for application migration: new system implementation, system conversion and landscape transformation.
A system conversion transforms your application layer, along with the DB and OS layers. The process may involve extensive changes to the way your landscape is run and managed as well as the landscape itself.
Application Conversion is a complex process, however, which requires a reliable technical team.
The system conversion should be planned carefully, with downtime scheduled to minimize disruption. Look for a partner who can accomplish the process with a single downtime — the shorter, the better.
Brownfield migration is the most common path for an SAP cloud migration from ECC to S/4HANA. It may be done as a second project following a technical migration to Suite on HANA, or as a single, multi-stage process.
