Top Ten Tips & Tricks Tick ListPreludeSAP S/4HANA Cloud is more than SAP S/4HANA deployed in the cloud.Each customer moving to SAP S/4HANA Cloud will do so for a different reason –simplification, access to innovation or fast time to value, perhaps. SAP S/4HANA Cloudbeing more than just a deployment option is pivotal to how we deliver against customerobjectives.The three components of cloud mindset;Fit-to-StandardSAP S/4HANA Cloud is a fit-to-standard solution, meaning Business Processes are built in,and configuration is kept to a minimum to drive simplicity. Adopting standard underpins theinnovation cycle of the solution, the ability to achieve global consistency, and the agility tochange as the customer’s industry demands.Pace of ChangeAt SAPPHIRE 2018, Bill McDermott, CEO of SAP said; “Change has never moved this fastand it will never move this slowly again”. In the cloud there are two pace changes toembrace; Time to value and Innovation Cycle.Time to Value – projects take months rather than years. A considerable advantage ofthis is business objectives are still relevant by the time the solution is delivered. Thechanging relationship between IT and the Business is discussed more in the followingpages.Innovation cycle – rather than innovation being a project, it happens continuously. Toderive most value, users will adopt new functionality into their day to day role on a quarterlybasis. From a learning perspective, this is made easy with SAP Fiori interface and built-inintelligent assistance, Co-Pilot.Business Transformation, rather than IT projectSAP’s on-premise ERP is well-known for its level of customization, SAP S/4HANA Cloudtargets an entirely different customer need. Traditionally you would derive customerrequirements and then mould the solution to fit the customer – an IT project. Now, withSAP S/4HANA Cloud, the solution is set and our role as Partner or SAP is to prescriptivelyguide the customer through their evolution to adopt the solution – a BusinessTransformation. This is a significant shift in expectation – the ten points of 5TL have beencollated to indicate what contributes to a successful go-live.PAUL HELMS, SAPJuly 2018PUBLIC
