Over 30,000 companies are preparing to migrate to S/4HANA in the next 5 years! But when it comes to S/4 HANA, the first question asked is whether we choose On-Premise version or a Cloud version(of-course with cloud there are multiple options as well).
The companies that are so accustom with the traditional SAP ERP, find it overwhelming about the options available with S/4 HANA. There is a confusion amongst the business/key users about which option is best suited for their requirement.
The options available with S/4 HANA are:
Broadly, the consideration for your choice of SAP S/4 HANA includes the following four points:
While On-Premise solution offers highest TCO and a controlled/integrated Governance, it misses on the newest rapid development services and faster innovation which the Cloud version offers out of the box.
For S/4 HANA Cloud any small medium firm which is currently looking for new ERP implementation can consider S/4 Cloud solution. For the larger firms, generally the two-tier model is recommended which is a mix of Private and Public cloud. Private Cloud will have the complex and customised system while the public cloud can be smaller subsidiaries.
For existing SAP customers, they can check if the SAP S/4 HANA Cloud version meets their requirements in which case, they can go for SAP S/4 HANA Cloud or they can migrate to an On-premise or an HANA enterprise cloud.
