SAP announced that by 2025 support will end for clients using Enterprise Resource Planning Software. The recommended roadmap is to move to SAP HANA, more specifically S/4HANA. Previously, SAP’s software worked with a number of databases referred to as AnyDB, such as Oracle, DB2 and SQL Server. Businesses converting to SAP HANA typically take one of three paths to HANA; Brownfield, Greenfield, or Selective, which is a hybrid of both. You likely have a plan, if not don’t fret as we offer clients a 1-day on-site assessment.
At Clear Technologies, we have the experience and skills to guide and advise the business from selecting the appropriate infrastructure, conversion plans & timelines to System Integrators. We seek to understand your current environment, assess your readiness (workshop), then map out a plan. Your partner throughout the HANA journey from prep, deploy, run and operational.
Clear Technologies developed a methodology and framework during past migrations, implementations and conversions. It starts with a brief discovery call to determine where you should start. Everything is designed to maximize the businesses time and investments to align with the best approach for your specific needs and goals.
