With the current uncertainties created by the pandemic and Brexit, companies are focused on bringing new products and services to market more quickly and looking at upgrading their systems to become more responsive to customer needs.

Many businesses running legacy ERP systems are moving to the Intelligent ERP system, SAP S/4HANA. Particularly those on SAP ECC. Business benefits of this move are outlined in the recent IDC report ‘SAP S/4HANA and the Opportunity for IT’. It includes:

  • Digitally enabled organisations
  • Optimised processes (maintenance, HA/DR)
  • Improved agility - ability to think, understand, move
  • Empowers IT to offer innovation to the business
  • Reduced costs
  • Simplified landscape (fewer systems to manage)

At Invenio, we recognise the urgency for businesses to accelerate their digital transformation so they can remain relevant and competitive. However, many organisations currently have an understandable reluctance to invest large amounts upfront. To address this need, we have developed a series of S/4HANA templates which deliver measurable ROI in a much shorter timeframe than previously possible for more traditional ERP implementations.

Our S/4HANA packages

Our templates are based on standard offerings from SAP combined with reusable assets to ensure a fixed scope, timeline and budget. Customers can choose from our catalogue of packages, which include embedded analytics, and industry-specific solutions such as our Integrated Business Planning for Supply Chains.

These templates are targeted investments which directly contribute to ROI and set organisations on the path to innovation. But they aren’t rigid. We are able to tailor them to our customers’ specific requirements, for example adding in specific reports and custom workflows.

10-day Assessment & 90-day Conversion Templates

We start with our initial assessment which takes 10 days. Following that, the organisation will then have enough information to decide on the best strategy to approach its data conversion. Some, usually the larger businesses within the SME market, may require more information so we also have an advanced assessment, which includes custom code analysis and a stand-up system to try out.

By breaking up the conversion process into manageable chunks, companies can get ROI really quickly. They spend 10 days to assess and then go for the system conversion which takes them from ECC to SAP S/4HANA in only 90 days. So, in a little over 3 months businesses can leverage the power of the SAP HANA high-performance in-memory database which accelerates data-driven, real-time decisions and actions.
