  • Learn how to establish your SAP S/4HANA road map, how to validate the best deployment approach for your organisation, and how to determine the different roles and responsibilities in your SAP S/4HANA project
  • Review common project pitfalls and diversions, such as scope creep, poor blueprint, and budget overflow; and learn how to mitigate the risk in your SAP projects by identifying your true system and process health
  • Examine SAP’s top programmes, such as value assurance (VA) and digital transformation engagement (DTE), and see how they align with assessments, tools, and accelerators, such as business scenario recommendation (BSR) and solution transformation assessment and realignment (STAR)
  • Step through demos of the SAP system transformation via the STAR process, including system scans, process driven workshops, cost-benefit-risk analysis, road maps, and output examples and deliverables
  • Understand how to establish your SAP S/4HANA road map and how to validate the best deployment approach for your organisation
  • Gather best practices on how to calculate and simulate potential performance improvements and database space savings
  • Discover where SAP S/4HANA will have a real impact on your current real-life SAP usage, such as simplifications, process/performance improvements, and better analytics
