OpenSAP – Find Your Path to SAP S/4HANA

New courses from OpenSAP on S/4HANA and the migration option. Well worth understanding. The course content is replicated below. Link to the course is HERE 

Digital transformation is reinventing the global economy. Individuals, businesses, and societies are becoming interconnected in real time, leading to a new digital economy that is more collaborative, intelligent, responsive, and efficient. As a result, businesses have to adapt to maintain and grow their market share within their field of operation. To stay ahead of the crowd, they need to realize a drastic increase in productivity and economic value.

SAP S/4HANA is SAP’s next-generation business suite that enables customers to streamline data models, optimize daily business transactions, accelerate strategic decision making, and simplify with a digital core – whether you use it in the cloud or on premise.


As an existing customer or partner, you may be asking yourself: “When is the right time to move to SAP S/4HANA and how?” This 4-week course aims to answer your questions about the WHY, WHAT and HOW. Experts from Product Management and Co-Innovation will lay out the fundamentals of the SAP S/4HANA adoption journey and explain three of the most popular scenarios for your path to SAP S/4HANA:

  • New implementation (greenfield implementation)
  • System conversion (brownfield implementation)
  • Landscape transformation.


During the first week, you’ll gain an insight into the innovation highlights and selected new use cases of the latest SAP S/4HANA 1610 release, and how to interpret the roadmap. In addition, you’ll learn about the latest deployment options for SAP S/4HANA and how to make your project a success. Week 1 will then conclude with an introduction to the award-winning SAP Fiori 2.0.

In the following three weeks, you’ll dive deeper into the details of the implementation scenarios. Week 2 covers new implementation as a fresh start. Using a case study, we’ll walk you through important aspects of a fresh start based on the new SAP Activate for SAP S/4HANA implementation framework, all the way from preparation to go-live.

Week 3 covers system conversion for an already installed SAP system. Here, we’ll show you how to move a complete SAP ERP application – and the business processes supported by SAP ERP – from your current SAP Business Suite running on any database to SAP S/4HANA.

Week 4 deals with landscape transformation, where we’ll shed light on the different scenarios and conclude with a comparison of new implementation and system conversion.

Each of these weeks will contain a combination of introductions to the topic and system demonstrations that explain key steps in the transition to SAP S/4HANA and give decision support as well as concrete next steps. It’s a must-join for any consultant considering an SAP S/4HANA project.

After week four, you’ll have a further week to prepare for and participate in the final exam and earn a record of achievement. Also, your feedback and ideas are highly appreciated throughout the course.
