Bluefield S/4HANA migration

Published on 11/16/2022

Our client is a university founded in 1889 and counts about 10,000 students today. It is a multi-disciplinary institution: arts, humanities, economics and management, law, theology, science and medicine.

Context & Challenges

Our customer’s initial SAP implementation was carried out in 1996. The versions of the modules installed at the time have become obsolete in S/4HANA, such as the FM module (public sector budget accounting), where only the FM-BCS version is maintained in S/4HANA.

Our customer wanted to take advantage of the innovations brought by the new solution, while retaining the benefits of investments made in SAP over more than 20 years.

During the migration analysis phase, the “Bluefield Shell Conversion” scenario was shown to be the most suitable.
