SAP S/4HANA Conversion Pilot

Test-drive SAP S/4HANA in the cloud


SoftwareOne SAP S/4HANA Conversion Pilot

SAP S/4HANA conversion projects often encounter problems when ECC applications, data, and other code are run on the target cloud for the first time. Testing can assess whether your data and customisations will perform reliably within the new SAP S/4HANA application and cloud environment. You can also examine licence and cloud utilisation to estimate the total cost of ownership.

The SoftwareOne SAP S/4HANA Conversion Pilot Program is a three- to five-month trial that provides real-world validation of your conversion plan. Our specialists run a pilot SAP S/4HANA instance on the target cloud. This test will gauge the performance of ECC code and data in the new environment, and it will measure resource consumption to ensure actual usage will comply with your budget.

A trial run prevents headaches and delays

Kick the tyres of SAP S/4HANA in the cloud by running a pilot programme before you embark on a full conversion. We provide pathway validation across two layers: technical assessment and conversion of some of your custom code and data to SAP S/4HANA to test your plan's viability.
