With the long-standing SAP customer Tyczka, DATAGROUP developed an S/4HANA transformation roadmap using its Value Check method. The roadmap serves as a sound basis for management decisions.
DATAGROUP has been a strategic partner of Tyczka in the area of IT and SAP hosting and consulting for many years. Since the SAP systems of the SAP ECC 2027 generation currently in use are nearing the support end, it was clear that action had to be taken. However, an investment in the new S/4HANA software generation needs to be well considered and solidly argued. With the ValueCheck for S/4HANA, DATAGROUP offers a methodology to identify specific added values and transfer them into a customer-specific roadmap. Tyczka and DATAGROUP started the ValueCheck project in autumn 2019.
The aim of the project was to develop an S/4HANA transformation roadmap as a sound basis for management decisions. It was not only the end of support that convinced Tyczka that a change to S/4HANA is a necessary step. Functional optimisations in the various specialist processes, which can only be realised under the new system, also showed significant added value for the customer. Through the DATAGROUP ValueCheck, these individual potentials were worked out together, creating a valuable basis on which further action can be built.
As is well known, the success of a project can be measured above all by the goals achieved. Therefore, before the analysis with the ValueCheck, guidelines and project goals were defined together with the management. This was done according to the SMART methodology (specific – measurable – achievable – realistic and timed).
Based on this, the ValueCheck for S/4HANA, consisting of 3 phases (SCAN, FOCUS, ACT), was carried out. Within 4 months the main processes and the technical environment were examined, the objectives and alternatives for achieving them were discussed and an individual roadmap for the successful implementation of the S/4HANA transformation was developed.
In addition to the technical components, the Tyczka roadmap includes process improvements in various functional areas as well as time and budget planning. Thus, Tyczka has an individual roadmap for S/4HANA, which is adapted to the company-specific needs and goals and which can be realistically implemented.
