Enterprise Resource Planning

We transform your business processes

We offer you the right solutions

With the ERP system from SAP, you map all of your company's core processes: finance and accounting, human resources, production / manufacturing, procurement and logistics. Our experts will support you in this - from the transformation to SAP S / 4HANA through tailor-made SAP solutions and industry solutions to SAP software architecture. We can thus offer you the right solutions for transforming your business processes.

By using SAP authorizations, you control the access options of your employees in an SAP system - for example to personal data - and assign various authorization roles. Since access security must be guaranteed, authorization concepts, authorization tools and the automated protection of SAP systems are important factors.

In this context, companies often face similar challenges:

1. Your company has received a list of audit findings from auditors and needs help in eliminating the various compliance deficiencies in the SAP security environment.

2. Your company is about to undergo a revision or an external audit and you want to eliminate possible findings in advance. So-called security checks are often carried out here beforehand.

3. Your company needs support in maintaining and implementing your authorization concept.

4. Your company would like to draft an authorization concept because there is no correct concept or the concept does not yet exist in prose.

5. The authorizations have grown over time and are no longer transparent. Customers often decide to carry out an authorization redesign in order to limit the authorizations to a minimum again and to design them according to the workstations.

6. The company would like to prepare for an S / 4-HANA migration and must therefore maintain the authorizations accordingly.

Our teams of experts support you in the development and implementation of authorization concepts. For an upcoming S / 4HANA migration, we organize the redesign of the authorizations so that your IT landscape can withstand external audits in the future. In addition, we are happy to advise and support you in the area of ​​system hardening, in order to bring your systems up to the current security standard and to close potential security gaps.

In today's world, profound developments in the SAP system are no longer to be expected. However, further and new developments of SAP-based business models can be supported in the best possible way by architecture decisions of the SAP software. A switch to S / 4HANA technology, for example, offers new options for designing this, and thus also takes into account the future SAP strategy. The core tasks of the SAP system are increasingly being supplemented or even replaced by cloud services or other systems.

The ecosystem around the existing SAP systems continues to grow, which necessitates a rethink, especially with regard to the integration of these systems. Those processes that extend beyond the SAP system boundaries require the consideration of different and individual architecture approaches - for example microservices or modular monoliths.

In this sense, adesso supports you as a full-stack service provider based on the current state of the art. Based on our experience, the replacement of individual SAP-specific technologies with SAP-independent approaches (e.g. oDATA or SOAP) can be thought of, conceptualized and implemented. There is also the option of integrating new approaches to S / 4HANA technology. In this way, the modularization, reusability or resilience of SAP solutions can be increased. In this way, an improved integration of your SAP system into the overall ecosystem of the company is achieved with a wide variety of integration points.

SAP transformation S / 4HANA

The switch to S / 4HANA must have taken place by 2027 or by 2030 at the latest. The transformation to SAP S / 4HANA is a project with great opportunities and some risks. The significantly improved possibilities of S / 4HANA, the HTML5-based front end with Fiori and the merging of previously technically required functionalities open up significant improvements in the mapping of business processes.

Of opportunities and risks

On the technical side, z. B. the mapping of accounts payable and accounts receivable by means of Customer Vendor Integration (CVI), in logistics there are opportunities to increase efficiency through improved material requirements planning (MRP runs) and optimized stock levels. The changed data model eliminates the need for aggregates and replaces them with real-time evaluations.

These improvements vary depending on the industry and the type of change. There are industry-specific “Market Approved Journeys” here.

In order to reap these fruits, however, preparations are necessary at all levels: An examination of previous in-house developments is essential. The check points are as follows: If this in-house development is still used extensively, if it is still necessary in the future, it is compatible with the changed data model.

After an initial analysis, it can be decided whether the greenfield approach or the brownfield approach is more promising. The changeover using the Bluefield approach, in which only a limited amount of data is processed by the conversion, is also a possible alternative.

On the technical side, it may be necessary to take into account that new technologies are used with SAP HANA and Linux. Depending on the operating model, appropriate know-how must be built up or requested from the operating partner. The operating model can also change, with the increasing acceptance of hypervisors (IaaS) such as Microsoft Azure, AWS or GCP, these are in the solution space. With reference architectures with solutions and technologies from SAP (Intelligent Enterprise Suite with S / 4 HANA and SCP) and Microsoft (Azure Services, Modern Workplace), templates are available for planning the changeover.

The use of Azure enables a highly agile approach and removes any hardware restrictions. Infrastructure can be provided at the push of a button and - especially important in the project - abandoned or scaled to a different size.
