Best Practices to upgrade SAP ECC to SAP S/4 HANA



  • Plan the Upgrade: Create a detailed project plan that covers all the key activities, timelines, and resources required for the upgrade.
  • Assess Current Landscape: Conduct a thorough assessment of the current SAP ECC landscape to identify any customizations, integrations, and data that need to be migrated.
  • Clean Up Data: Clean up the data in SAP ECC to minimize the amount of data that needs to be migrated and to improve the performance of SAP S/4HANA.
  • Review Customizations: Review all customizations to determine which ones can be reused, modified, or retired.
  • Prepare for Technical Upgrades: Prepare the technical environment for the upgrade by applying the latest patches and upgrades to SAP ECC and related systems.
  • Test and Validate: Conduct comprehensive testing and validation of the upgraded system, including unit, integration, and end-to-end testing, to ensure that the upgraded system meets the required business requirements.
  • Train End-Users: Provide end-user training to ensure that they are familiar with the new system and can perform their tasks effectively.
  • Go-Live and Post-Implementation Support: Plan the go-live and post-implementation support carefully to ensure a smooth transition to the new system.
