Take the Step into the Digital World

Digital Transformation is more than an evolutionary change. The rapid technological progress of digitalization is causing fundamental shifts affecting society and commerce in particular. The increasing speed of this change is increasingly requiring companies to use an iterative process to continuously review and modify their orientation and business model in a way that is as agile as possible.

SAP S/4HANA lays the Digital Groundwork

Our clients use S/4HANA, the SAP platform technology of the future, in order to ideally support this process through ‘two-speed IT’ – which offers stability at the digital core and agility in competition.

SAP S/4HANA makes it possible to consistently orient an organization in line with digital processes: The suite consolidates internal and external elements in a structure that goes far beyond standard ERP software. SAP S/4HANA reduces the complexity of your IT and generates a flow of information in real time. This lets you quickly and effectively implement business processes, map future processes and process components in a stable way, and supplement flexible microservices in the cloud platform or through other cloud solutions.

Your Benefits

Switching to SAP S/4HANA lets you enjoy the following benefits like faster, simpler processes as well a high level of user acceptance:

New Design

Modern, intuitive-to-use user interface (SAP Fiori) with a focus on user- and role-specific needs.

Modern Architecture

Enables the mapping of all processes in a system based on a simplified data model.

Real-time Processing

In-memory databases enable ultra-fast processing, even of very large data volumes, without requiring prior aggregating.

Smart Business Approach

Actively informs users if KPIs are exceeded or not reached, and provides support with prognostic functions.

Smoothly Transition from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA with the Help of Arvato Systems


Generally speaking, when it comes to conversion, we differentiate between greenfield (new implementation, hence ‘green field’) and brownfield (migration of an existing SAP ERP system) approaches.

The greenfield approach provides an opportunity to analyze existing business processes and therefore carry out a process redesign if this is necessary. At the same time, this approach makes it easier to part with interfaces or features that are no longer used, since the system is rebuilt from the ground up and ‘legacy issues’ are automatically eliminated.

We support you as you switch to SAP S/4HANA – a process analogous to an upgrade or migration – through an agile, highly effective five-stage system conversion (brownfield approach). The existing system landscape (configuration, data, and expansions) remains largely intact. Experience has shown that brownfield migration is more complex, since it requires a high level of master data quality and can, for instance, also entail additional tasks in terms of client vendor integration or proprietary developments.

Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages and need to be observed in the context of your system and process landscape. Our specialists work together with your team to analyze your framework conditions in advance so that we can determine the ideal approach for your project. Speak with our specialists!

Our Approach: Software Factory plus Value Center

We rely on the concept of the Software Factory for our clients: Dedicated global teams of experienced specialists provide assurance using proven tools and methods (including CIP):

Reliable planning
A plannable and consistent budget framework
Precise, professional project execution

Value Center (Lines of Business)

Our project teams are reinforced by specialists from our Value Centers – experts in various specialist areas, such as SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) or SAP Finance, who take on specific tasks and clients. Their comprehensive expertise ensures quick training and creates added value for the project:

  • Knowledge and skills are solidified and further developed on an ongoing basis through the continuous assignment of employees
  • Teams with specialist experience add security for your project
  • Budget and time planning become even more precise and transparent
  • Flexible teams; additional employees with specialist knowledge can be added as needed
  • Our Value Center specialists support you following the conversion, building on your digital groundwork

Depending on your requirements, the provision of service is carried out on-site, nearshore from the closest Value Center, or offshore. This significantly reduces project cycles and allows us to custom-coordinate our work in line with your needs to create maximum value while maintaining an inexpensive cost structure.
