Fujitsu launches SAP S/4HANA ERP conversion and migration service

27 Feb 18

Fujitsu has announced the launch of the SAP S/4HANA Conversion Service, which offers comprehensive support for migration from existing SAP ERP systems to SAP S/4HANA, SAP's next-generation ERP system.

Targeting customers migrating from an existing SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA, this service provides comprehensive support for migration preparations for post-migration verification.

With its experience in deploying and migrating SAP ERP systems, Fujitsu will evaluate the possibility of migrating customer systems as well as assuring the compatibility of various functions and will propose the optimal method for supporting the migration.

Going forward, Fujitsu will continue to offer a variety of services supporting the business lifecycle of customers through SAP systems, especially in deploying and migrating to SAP S/4HANA enterprise resource planning (ERP) service.

Service Features

1. Comprehensive support for migration preparations to post-migration tests

Through this service, Fujitsu will offer comprehensive support from preliminary tasks, such as defining requirements and design, to carrying out the migration and post-migration testing, completing the whole project in as little as six months.

Fujitsu will prepare a migration plan using custom templates.

In addition, Fujitsu provides a smooth migration by having its SAP-certified consultants support every step of the process.

2. Migration of customers' individually expanded functionality

Fujitsu will validate the post-migration compatibility of customers' individually expanded functionality, ensuring reliable asset migration.

In addition, test scenarios will be prioritised according to their impact on operations, efficiently conducting post-migration operational evaluations.

3. Flexible support for migrating diverse customer environments

Fujitsu can support migration to SAP S/4HANA, regardless of customer's operating system, database management system, or SAP ERP system.

In addition to on-premise systems, Fujitsu supports on-premises operating environments for SAP S/4HANA as well as a number of cloud services, including Fujitsu Cloud Service K5, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and NIFCLOUD, for SAP S/4HANA environments.

4. Comprehensive support for customer operations

By combining this service with other existing services provided by Fujitsu, such as the SAP S/4HANA Consulting Service, the SAP S/4HANA Proof of Concept Service, LCM Service, and the Operations Improvement Support Service, Fujitsu will offer full support for customer businesses with the SAP system, from conceptual planning of the new system prior to migration and maintenance to post-migration operational improvements.

Future Plans

Fujitsu has applied for the certification of this system under SAP's Partner Packaged Solution Qualification.

With this certification, Fujitsu will be able to provide solutions which are standardised and certified, offering the customers predictable QCD, letting them concentrate on their core business.

In addition, Fujitsu will expand this service globally in the future, in coordination with the Global Delivery Centers (GDC) it has developed as delivery locations in eight countries around the world.

Fujitsu supports the customer's digital transformation using a host of SAP products with S/4HANA at the core, providing a variety of services in a coordinated manner to address the customer's needs holistically.
