Adoption strategy and roadmap
Different SAP S/4HANA products come with various versions, deployment options, and jargons. As a result, organizations are confused about choosing an option that best fits their business needs. Also, they are unsure about business benefits, risks, and costs for each option. Our adoption strategy and roadmap offering helps you in choosing the right S/4HANA product (S/4HANA Finance, S/4HANA Enterprise Management, S/4 HANA Public Cloud Version Vs. S/4 HANA On-premise, etc.) and the right deployment approach (greenfield, brownfield, system conversion, Central Finance, etc.) for a least disruptive adoption of S/4HANA. We also provide evaluation of different implementation options with pros and cons, based on business context along with costs and risks. With this offering, we help you define a best fit IT and process architecture roadmap, enabled by S/4HANA with the most significant, technology-enabled objectives / milestones; needed to achieve your strategic business goals and priorities.
Use case-based proof of concept (PoC)
Infosys also encourages clients to experience the S/4HANA system and associated business benefits by doing a rapid proof of concept. Use cases for PoC may be arrived after assessment, or during the value discovery workshop to support the business case. Rapid PoC or prototyping can be done, by leveraging our internal HANA lab or cloud-based infrastructure of our hardware partners together with Infosys Catalyst for SAP S/4 HANA® which is a pre-configured solution developed for various industries based on a combination of SAP S/4HANA and Industry-specific best practices. With our use case-based PoC offering, you can reduce the overall time and cost of design of the project by up to 20 percent. With this service offering, you can realize critical business processes through S/4HANA to demonstrate value to your business and strengthen the business case. Also, with this offering you can validate whether specific processes or investment functions function as desired (e.g. custom development) in S/4HANA system.
We also offer the option to try SAP S/4HANA before you buy it. By setting up S/4HANA system for select complex business scenarios, we demonstrate how the business process will work with your data. This demonstration is done on our infrastructure at zero cost for you in terms of hardware or license investments.
