No business system is above Moore’s law – where on average, computing power is doubled every two years. If you’re running on a legacy enterprise resource planning tool (ERP), your business is no longer on par with contemporary systems.
For businesses running SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), it’s the end of an era – the long-standing system will soon be completely unsupported. A migration to S/4HANA is the best way to stay competitive in your industry and grow via the benefits of the newest technology on the market.
Upgrading from the current ECC isn’t like upgrading your phone to a newer model with incremental improvements. S/4HANA is truly a leap forward. Over time, the technology industry hits certain benchmarks that change how people interact with their technology. Like dialup to DSL to high-speed fiber optics, technology comes along that is on another level from what previously existed and unless you and your business are on it, you’ll be out of date and behind your competitors.
This is especially true now for businesses running ECC systems. For over a decade, ECC was the best way to leverage your data and conduct business on-premises as well as in the cloud. But, in 2025, SAP will end support for ECC, effectively rendering it obsolete.
As the industry successor to ECC, SAP S/4HANA is the new standard for performing day-to-day operations with your data. After its 2015 launch, Gartner called S/4HANA a “transformational shift.” S/4HANA is the new standard for storing and using data and moving fully to the always-on availability of the cloud. Operating on S/4HANA empowers your workforce and gives them the analytics tools they need to efficiently operate on the most advanced cloud system in the industry.
