Looking to migrate successfully to SAP S/4HANA?

You’ll probably know that SAP will be withdrawing its support for third-party databases in 2025. Currently only 10 percent of SAP’s global userbase has made the transition to SAP S/4HANA. Many others are know of the necessity and benefits of doing so, but are aware that a migration has quite an impact. All the more so due to the strict hardware requirements that apply to SAP’s S/4HANA database. In response to these challenges, IRENT can offer rental SAP HANA swing boxes that satisfy SAP’s stringent certification requirements.

The major gain offered by the new SAP system is real-time business intelligence. The intelligent ERP solution uses real-time data to enable faster decision-making and more effective responses to developments. It eliminates many of the obstacles associated with existing ERP applications, such as batch latency, complex landscapes and manual processes. SAP S/4HANA was created to make the most of SAP’s leading in-memory computing platform. The results are impressive: greater speed and flexibility, thanks to a dramatically simpler data model. In-memory processing, however, requires the use of the S/4HANA database.

Strict hardware requirements

Given the strict hardware requirements, migrating to S4 often poses substantial challenges. Migrating databases is not a matter of simply copying and pasting. The use of custom code only adds to the complexity of the job at hand. To add to the challenge one should take into account that SAP has strict hardware requirements to guarantee smooth performance of their database and ERP system.
