Recent Survey Shows Data Management Challenges During SAP S/4HANA Migrations

61% of SAP customers report that data management issues are slowing down process automation and impeding moves to S/4HANA.

New data from SAP's own user groups reveals major challenges with data management when migrating to SAP S/4HANA. Recent findings from the UK & Ireland SAP User Group (UKISUG) have found that a majority of SAP customers have difficulties with data management impeding business process automation (BPA) and migrations to the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system S/4HANA. 

Color us shocked!  

As many of you know, RISE with SAP was announced by SAP in January 2021 as an offering combining SAP’s newly acquired business process intelligence solution with SAP S/4HANA Cloud, along with technical services to smooth the transition process, cloud infrastructure, and consumption credits for the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) in a single contract.

“Any data migration is challenging. Data is often in silos across the enterprise, and it’s not always (okay - almost never) governed properly. Accuracy and consistency problems are often the norm,” explains Kevin Campbell, CEO at Syniti. “But success depends on high-quality data. Because of this, a move to S/4 means it’s absolutely necessary to work with a partner experienced in complex data migrations.”  

And SAP agrees. 

According to a benchmark report from SAPInsider in November 2021, choosing the right partner is imperative to removing risk and decreasing data migration costs. 

Regardless of the challenges that organizations may face with a move to S/4HANA, choosing the right implementation partner to assist with your deployment can detrimentally impact migration costs. SAP customers need to look beyond simply hosting providers and take into account advisory, implementation, and application management roles.
