IBA Conversion Pack for SAP S/4HANA
IBA Group completed several migration projects to SAP S/4HANA and realized that it is not enough to use only SAP ERP 6.0 automatic conversion tools, for example QuickFix or some proprietary developments, to successfully achieve the customer’s goals. Only experts with experience in deploying SAP S/4HANA solutions are capable of activating new system capabilities and proving its effectiveness depending on business objectives.
SAP S/4HANA MIGRATION SERVICES BY IBA GROUP ON ONE PAGE
There are several ways to migrate to SAP S/4HANA: Greenfield, System Landscape Conversion, ERP System Conversion, and Hybrid Migration. The IBA Group team has completed projects using all these scenarios. Today, 3500+ end users are operating SAP S/4HANA-based customer systems.
We offer a technical evaluation before migrating to SAP S/4HANA. The evaluation results will help to reduce the migration time and budget if you are considering the option of converting or hybrid migration of your SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA.
After consultation, the customer chooses one of the basic conversion packages depending on its background, objectives, cost and timing. These include Sandbox Conversion, Full System Conversion, and Code Remediation Only packages.
SAP S/4HANA MIGRATION SCENARIOS
We perform reengineering and streamline processes. We complete initial data load and delete the old landscape. We deploy SAP S/4HANA in the cloud or on-premises.
Customers choose this option when the scale of changes to standard SAP ERP functionality no longer meets the company’s business development requirements. All their own developments are no longer involved, since it is “Greenfield” scenario. We use the SAP Activate methodology – using a pre-configured prototype that can speed up the design phase and complete the implementation of your new system in the shortest possible time. This scenario also allows migrating to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
Converting SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA (System Conversion/Brownfield)
We convert the existing SAP Business Suite ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. The system is deployed on-premises. Using the System Conversion (Brownfield) migration scenario, you can convert your system to SAP S/4HANA in two steps, activate basic functions and move on to progressive implementation of the rest of SAP S/4HANA innovations.

Hybrid Migration (Hybrid/Selective Data Transition)
We create a new system according to the Greenfield scenario. Then we transfer parts of the functionality from the old system according to the ERP System Conversion scenario. Additionally, upon your request, we can perform migration to the cloud.
Using the combined Selective Data Transfer (Hybrid) approach, part of the developments from the old system is migrated to new SAP S/4HANA. This will maintain your company’s successful innovations throughout the project.
Technical Evaluation will assist in choosing the right scenario before migration.
We consolidate the distributed IT systems of the enterprise or selectively migrate individual business units and solution components to SAP S/4HANA. The system is deployed in the cloud or on-premises.
SAP Landscape Transformation is the most interesting way suitable for major distributed companies. With it, you quickly start using SAP S/4HANA Central Finance, a new system that accommodates all financial transactions from the existing heterogeneous SAP/non-SAP systems landscape. And then you gradually abandon your legacy systems by migrating and redesigning (if necessary) their functionality into a single management system for a group of companies.
WHY IT IS NECESSARY TO MIGRATE TO SAP S/4HANA
USERS NEED NEW DESIGN AND ADVANCED ARCHITECTURE
Legacy ERP systems are lagging behind the pace of the digital economy. SAP ERP has been in use for a long time, the database grows in size, and reports are generated slowly. Businesses need a reliable and scalable tool for managing information and data flows. Users need a new design and advanced architecture, an integration base for IoT, big data and social media.
ADDRESS ALL RISKS
Prior to migration, we conduct a technical, functional and strategic assessment of the customer’s IT structure. We analyze the systems in detail, identify hidden risks and barriers to migration, and estimate the budget and terms, taking into account the identified issues. Together with consultants, we determine how the migration to SAP S/4HANA will improve the business and facilitate its digital transformation.
In 7 years, the system you have invested in for 20 years will become so outdated that you will have to spend money on developing a new one. The system, which is already outdated today, will become completely obsolete in 7 years, but it will still have to be abandoned. It is better to spend this time not on expensive support of the old ERP, but on getting to know the new SAP S/4HANA capabilities that will benefit your business.
This is a Proof of Concept. We will not fix some of the elements as this will require careful analysis and deep involvement of the customer’s employees and IT staff. We will skip elements so as not to disrupt the whole process.
