Thinking of attending our Enterprise Architect SIG?

This SIG helps Enterprise Architects, by giving them access to essential information about SAP products and strategy. The SIG is aimed at Enterprise Architects and at decision-making roles in business or IT.

Gareth Kirkham from the SAP EA Group will present SAP RISE Program with PCE and BTP.

Using a real customer project, Gareth will explore what the SAP RISE program is and how it can help customer programs. Gareth will also explore more generically how RISE involves the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP, formerly SAP Cloud Platform) and SAP Private Cloud Edition (PCE).

Julian* Brumby from SNP will present Accelerated S/4HANA Migration.

To date the uptake of S/4HANA amongst the SAP installed base has been much lower than anticipated. There are a number of reasons why, but what is common throughout is that there is limited business appetite for a long, costly, disruptive transformation project unless the business case is hugely compelling. In many cases this is not the case.

If the migration to S/4HANA could be done faster, cheaper and with limited impact to the business, whilst ensuring business improvement and innovation this makes the decision so much easier. SNP have developed a unique migration approach which offers exactly this. With SNP BLUEFIELD organisations can:

  • Automate analysis and visualisation of the as-is system(s) to enable rapid, fact-based planning
  • Deliver business transformation without costs, risks and time associated with Greenfield re-implementation (targeted business change)
  • Leave behind redundant data (org units) and take forward as much or as little historical data as required
  • Merge, consolidate and harmonise multiple data sources into a single transformation engine and import into the target S/4HANA system
  • Move to the Cloud and S/4 in one project, with one go-live
  • Minimised downtime at cut-over to avoid long outages

SNP's presentation will explain how, in particular IT departments can overcome the common blockers preventing an organisation transitioning to S/4HANA.

Simon Townson from the SAP EA Group will deliver a session on SAP ISAM (Integration Solution Advisory Methodology).

Re-cap on ISAM for the EA SIG with a focus on data integration and how Enterprise Architects can use this methodology to help make the right data integration choices based on the underlying data use cases.

John Barnard, Kevin Madder and Neil Ashworth also from the SAP EA Group will then cover Hyperscalers and your Data Strategy Part 1.

This session introduces the wider, very topical subject of how to integrate SAP solutions into your wider data strategy including the roles of Hyperscalers. The RISE and SAP Private Cloud initiatives from SAP throw a particular focus on this as we increasingly adopt Hyperscalers as the platform for SAP solutions.

Part 2 of this will be the subject on the entire September EA SIG where SAP will go into more details on Hyperscaler.

There is not one tool that is applicable for every scenario. Different use cases for data dictate different patterns. They will explore these use cases and highlight why they demand different approaches.
