Develop the digital backbone of your business

SAP S/4HANA – the new real-time suite

S/4HANA is the latest generation of SAP products and is one of the most modern ERP systems. It is the digital backbone of a company. S stands for simple, 4 for the fourth product generation and HANA refers to the underlying database technology. Compared to its predecessors, S/4HANA is distinguished by a combination of in-memory technology and simplified structures, allowing data to be retrieved and processed in real-time. It allows for better performance. S/4HANA can be run both from the cloud and on-premise.

Due to the official end in maintenance for SAP ECC, there is time to switch to the new system until 2027.

We support you and organise your changeover using the migration scenario that suits you best. We assist you from developing your strategy, to your digital roadmap and implementation. 

PIKON is your reliable and experienced partner for your S/4HANA implementation

The introduction of ERP systems has a profound effect on process design and therefore on the way employees work. The processes mapped in your ERP system are the prerequisite for good interaction between all areas, they are the company’s digital backbone.

PIKON has many years of experience in implementing and optimising SAP systems and has already successfully completed several S/4HANA projects using different migration scenarios. As process-oriented consultants, we assist you in relaunching and further developing your processes and systems. We do this based on the PIKON 3-point approach, which combines the needs of people, IT and business management into a meaningful whole.


The transition to SAP S/4HANA demanded a lot from the entire organisation at EBZ. Therefore, we were glad to have found a partner in PIKON who not only assisted us during the Go-Live (Big Bang with foreign subsidiaries in the USA and China) but also ensured a smooth transition afterward, working together with our internal SAP team and not leaving our employees on their own. The PIKON consultants provided us with strong support during our Greenfield implementation.

Why S/4HANA? Reasons and advantages

Current trends such as big data, Internet of Things or batch size 1 place new demands on IT and business processes. At the same time, users expect solutions that they can use intuitively. And irrespective of the time, place and terminal device. The course was set with S/4HANA to be able to tackle the new challenges.

There are various reasons for our customers to implement S/4HANA and they are the system’s advantages at the same time:

  • Wanting to optimise, standardise and align business processes
  • Increasing productivity through faster, simpler and automated processes
  • Saving time in specialist departments, e.g. for month-end closing
  • Making decisions faster through real-time reporting, big data analyses
  • Intuitive, faster operation of the SAP system, thanks to new user-friendly interfaces such as SAP FIORI
  • Reducing TCO by merging different companies into one SAP system
  • More efficient cooperation between different companies by using one SAP system
