S/4HANA Implementation and Migration

SAP ECC (Enterprise Central Component) and SAP S/4HANA are both enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions developed by SAP, but they differ in various aspects, including architecture, functionality, and user experience. Here is a brief comparison between SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA:


Our team of BI analysts and data scientists have helped organizations be future ready by delivering data and analytics solutions that are customized to your enterprise requirements.

SAP S/4HANA: It is built on an in-memory computing platform, SAP HANA. This allows for real-time data processing and analytics, utilizing the power of in-memory storage and processing.


SAP ECC: Typically runs on databases like Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or IBM DB2.

SAP S/4HANA: Exclusively runs on the SAP HANA database, leveraging its capabilities for improved performance, faster analytics, and reduced data redundancy.

User Interface:

SAP ECC: Utilizes the traditional SAP GUI (Graphical User Interface), which can be considered somewhat complex and not as intuitive for modern users.

SAP S/4HANA: Offers a more modern and user-friendly interface, including the Fiori design principles, providing a responsive and intuitive user experience accessible on various devices.

Data Model:

SAP ECC: Has a complex data structure with numerous tables, leading to potential redundancy and a more challenging data model.

SAP S/4HANA: Simplifies the data model, reducing the number of tables and eliminating redundancy. This makes data processing more efficient and allows for faster transactions and reporting.


SAP ECC: Offers comprehensive functionality for various business processes, but some operations might require batch processing, leading to delays.

SAP S/4HANA: Enhances and simplifies existing functionality, providing real-time analytics and processing. It includes advanced features like machine learning and predictive analytics for better decision-making.


SAP ECC: Integration with other SAP and non-SAP systems is possible but may require middleware solutions.

SAP S/4HANA: Offers improved integration capabilities with standardized APIs and supports the latest integration technologies.

Deployment Options:

SAP ECC: Available on-premises and in a hosted environment.

SAP S/4HANA: Can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud, or as a hybrid solution, providing more flexibility to organizations.


SAP ECC: SAP announced the end of mainstream maintenance for SAP ECC 6.0 by 2027, encouraging customers to migrate to SAP S/4HANA.

SAP S/4HANA: SAP’s strategic direction for the future, with ongoing innovations and support. New features and functionalities are primarily developed for S/4HANA.

It’s important to note that SAP is actively encouraging its customers to transition from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA to leverage the benefits of the newer platform. Organizations should carefully plan and execute the migration based on their specific needs and requirements.
