Future Security through Migration To SAP S/4HANA Utilities

We support utilities in the implementation of the optimal migration strategy.

Use Case
Our services

Due to the upcoming discontinuation of SAP R/3 in 2027, companies must react promptly to ensure the future support and further development of their systems. The migration from SAP IS-U (Industry Solution for Utilities) to SAP S/4HANA Utilities (S4U) is of crucial, economic importance for utilities.

The migration from IS-U to S4U is a complex undertaking that requires careful planning, time and resources. In the process, companies should put their entire IT landscape around the energy industry processes to the test in order to be optimally equipped for the requirements of the industry, if necessary also with alternative IT solutions.

Use Case

Your challenge

Energy suppliers sometimes still operate outdated SAP R/3 IS-U for managing energy industry processes. The companies are also usually struggling with slow reaction times, a lack of flexibility and limited analysis functions, so that more efficient processes and innovations cannot be implemented. With the expiry of support, the end of the product life cycle has been reached.

The target picture

With a modern ERP system, energy suppliers intend to improve operational processes and be able to react more quickly to regulatory requirements. An innovative, scalable and flexible solution is the first choice here. The company's goal is to cover the entire value chain of the energy industry and thus generate even greater benefits.

Our solution path

The introduction of SAP S/4HANA Utilities enables energy providers to expand services, increase scalability and flexibility, and expand analysis functions. After a thorough analysis (process analysis, IT architecture, detailed analysis of the existing SAP systems), we support companies in implementing the optimal migration strategy (Green-, Brown-, Bluefield).
