SAP ECC6 End of life...Are you REALLY ready?

SAP ECC6 end of life will be happening in 2027 and replaced by S/4 HANA. 

There are over 30,000 ECC customers across the globe and a huge percentage of users will be affected by this change.

This means organisations are facing the challenge of migrating to S/4 HANA or a new ERP system, as smoothly as possible to not disrupt their business operations. It may seem like a long way off, but 2027 will be here before we know it, and as many businesses have customised their own systems to meet their specific requirements, migration and implementation may require a lot of work.

It can seem a daunting prospect, and so that’s why it’s so important to ensure that you are ready - and that’s where we can help!

Forward Role have put together a variety of tailored options for our existing clients, such as fullECC6 to S/4 HANA Programme Migrations support and dedicated consultants to work alongside your preferred Systems Integrator, to ensure that your demands are met for the long term.

We will partner with you and target the most vital aspects of your system and its age/usage, and work with your business to keep you in charge of operation, deliverables, timelines and (maybe most importantly) costs.

Our team here at Forward Role can sit with your ERP Manager/CTO/CIO/CFO and establish the initial needs and requirements, and then (in conjunction with certified SAP Consultants) make recommendations to keep interruptions to operations to a bare minimum, and at the correct cost for your budget.

As the HANA database, operates in a different way to other databases, this may require training and upskilling for your existing systems team. Or you may feel you want to hire new talent to manage the new database technology, which we can support you with.

Alternatively, we have options should you be thinking of splitting away from the SAP herd and investigating other avenues – different fit-for-purpose ERP Systems/diluted on - premise expertise etc.

The FR ERP Contract Team are highly experienced in working with businesses in the North West to create tailored solutions for the 2027 SAP ECC6 end of life. Take action now and make sure you are prepared!
