This is the lowest cost and risk alternative, because it allows you to keep all your company’s history in the same system. These implementations can be done in both SAP cloud and public clouds. The licensing model can be maintained under Perpetual Licenses or change to a full lease model (SaaS).
Implement a new SAP S/4HANA instance and realize your database migration from your old ERP, either for a SAP or non-SAP system. This is the best approach for customers who want a clean start, although the time and risks increase. New implementations can be done in the cloud, or in hybrid installations. The licensing model can be maintained under Perpetual Licenses or switched to a full lease model (SaaS).
Retain the various processes and/or business models in your current operational ERP while generating unified financial and management reports in real time for your entire company. This option is recommended for customers with multiple ERP installations because they first connect to a central repository and then migrate operational areas to the new ERP. The licensing model can be maintained under Perpetual Licenses or switched to a full lease model (SaaS).
In addition to financial and global management reporting, you may choose to create a complete finance template while retaining operational ERP for supply chain processes. Based on change and business needs, an organization may choose to standardize and centralize some or all of its financial and accounting processes.
