Planning a HANA Migration? Just Check this 4 topics


Each of us trying to convince customers to migrate HANA from anydb. Most probably this is one the most important job among the sales and presales people in SAP EcoSystem.

Year 2014 and 2015 I have visited, met and discussed with many executives (especially with CIOs, IT directors or managers) to help them to understand and digest the benefits of HANA. Thanks to SAP and SAP community we are now in a very good position with the help of great resources, documents and articles to bring customers the benefits of HANA.

Once the customers really get the idea of migrating to HANA, real challenges and questions came across. Here the topics that I have prepared:


Deployment Options

For me there are 3 main options: On-premise, Hybrid or Cloud Based. This depends on the customer DNA and regional constraints. In my region EMEA, most of the compaines really want to have their system stand by them. Also because of some the legal constraints (financial documents should be kept within the country) some information should be kept local. So I strongly recommend you to have accurate information of all deployment options and find the best option with customer. Please do not try to push the customer to one option. Here is very good document prepared by Jan Teichmann will really help you Overview of SAP HANA Deployment Options

Sizing

This is one of the most important task that really impacts the TCO. You need to help customer to shrink the existing data. Use the advantage of HANA and find the best way to shrink data. If you somehow convince customer to reduce data, this will turn back to you with smaller HW requirement and less time for migration. Anyway you may not shrink or reduce the data, however you need to be very accurate regarding sizing. Please read John Appleby's great document Licensing, Sizing and Architecting BW on HANA


HANA Administration

All of the customers who are convinced and ready to migrate HANA definetly raised this question: How my existing staff will transform and manage to admin HANA environment? Personally I am totally agree with them, this should be very well explained and no blur area should be left. Please be prepared before meet the customer. Great resources SAP HANA Administration - by the SAP HANA Academy by Denys KempenSAP HANA Backup/Recovery Overview by Andrea Kristen and finally HANA System Replication – Backup by Helmut Petritsch will really help you.


Transformation of Existing SAP People

Of course HANA will change the game and bring many features and new abilities after migration, but who will drive and lead this change within the customer organization. Please be prepared this topic as well. Existing abap and BW/BO resources will not be out-of-the game, they will be easily adopted and get the throphy brought by HANA. This reality should be very well explained to the customer. Here are some articles that I have shared earlier, may help you.Where is my place in HANA as an experienced ABAP developer? and Where is my place in HANA as an experienced BW/BO Consultant ?

Cheers,

S/4 HANA nedir?

SAP'nin yeni nesil kurumsal kaynak planlama uygulamalarının bütüne verdiği isim diyebiliriz. 
03 Şubat 2015 tarihinde SAP CEO'su Bill McDermott, kurucu ortağı Hasso Plattner ve Yönetim kurulu üyesi Bernd Leukert tarafından tüm dünyaya duyuruldu.


S/4 HANA ismi içinde yer alan S-> Simple (basit) 4'de 4. nesi anlamına gelmektedir.

SAP, S/4 HANA ile birlikte, basitleştirilmiş ve yeniden tasarlanmış iş süreçlerini vaadediyor. SAP ERP yeniden yazılıyor diyebiliriz. İlk kez 2014 yılında duyurulan Simple Finance ürünü S/4 içinde standart olarak sunuluyor.

S/4 HANA hem cloud'da hem de on-premise olarak kullanılabilecek. HTML5 tabanlı bir arayüzle kullanılabilecek. Bu yeni arayüzün adı Fiori. Ayrıca S/4 HANA içinde gerçek zamanlı olarak kullanılabilecek bir analitik engini olan HANA Live da yer alacak. Böylece hem OLAP hem OLTP aynı veritabanında yer alacak.




S/4 ile daha basit veri modeli olacağından daha az veritabanı tablosu olacak ve daha az veriye ihtiyaç duyulacak.

Neden S/4 HANA'ya upgrade ya da migrate etmeliyim?

Internette bu soruyu aradığınıza göre büyük ihtimalle, mevcut SAP ERP 'nizden bir şikayetiniz yok. Büyük sorunlar ve sıkıntılar çok şükür geride kaldı, çok yoruldunuz ama kullanıcılar memnun sistem stabil.

Tam rahat bir soluk alacakken nereden çıktı şimdi S/4 HANA? SAP ERP gayet iyi, tüm ihtiyaçlarımıza cevap veriyor, diye aklınızdan geçiriyorsunuz, ancak durum tam da böyle değil maalesef.
Kullandığınız ve memnun olduğunuz SAP ERP aslında 1992 yılında duyurulan R/3'ün 2004 yılında geliştirilmiş hali. 1992 yılında ilk duyurulduğunda çığır açmıştı. Bir çok firma ERP nedir bilmiyordu ya da kullandıkları sistemler mainframe ya da mini'ler üzerinde geliştirilmiş muhasebe ya da MRP temelli sistemlerdi, entegrasyondan bahsedilemezdi. İşte bu yıllarda SAP çığır açan client-server mimariyi ve Graphical User Interface'i temel alan R/3'ü ERP adıyla pazara sundu.
