Bridging the Gap for Brownfield S/4HANA Implementations


SAP S/4HANA is the future of enterprise resource planning (ERP), offering organizations the promise of modernization, efficiency, and innovation. For organizations with existing SAP ECC systems, the journey to S/4HANA often involves making a critical choice: the Brownfield approach. This approach aims to minimize disruptions by upgrading your existing system while preserving configurations and customizations. But how can you navigate this complex process efficiently and ensure your custom code aligns with S/4HANA standards? That's where Pillir's Low Code/No Code Platform comes into play.


Understanding the Brownfield Approach

The Brownfield approach to S/4HANA migration focuses on upgrading your existing SAP ECC system. It aims to minimize disruptions to ongoing operations by retaining configurations, custom code, and data. While this approach offers advantages in terms of business continuity and a shorter implementation timeline, it's not without challenges. One of the key challenges is ensuring that your custom code aligns seamlessly with S/4HANA's standards.
