Where do I start with SAP 4 HANA migration to Google Cloud?
Do we do a greenfield HANA implementation and then migrate the data i need to save costs? how do i integrate with SalesForce? How do I leverage AI/ML/Big Query to get better data insights. How do I integrate with Ariba and FieldGlass? Do I start in the corner with one of those instances in the corner to get benefits of the cloud and then leverage the full benefits of the cloud by migrating the more complex installations? Do I do a greenfield or brownfield migration? How do we deal with data transformation for code remediation? What if i have 10k code - manually - 6-7 months with 50 resources. automation with smart tools? Get your SAP instance installed in minutes. Also, you can stop/restart the instance while doing the testing for your sandbox deployments. One of the recommended solution is to deploy the base install, then create a clone where you apply patches and updates and then move your data over form the base install.
SAP transformation opportunities
Bring your SAP install as is and then start exploring transformation to HANA opportunities. There have been some examples where customers have consolidated 10's of instances into one unified instance by leveraging Google's network infrastructure. SAP has 60-70k ERP customers and 300k to 400k total customers including other products such as concur, Success Factors, Netweaver, Business Objects, Litmos, etc. Also, about 11k customers have bought the HANA licenses and 2k to 3k are in production. A typical greenfield implementation of SAP 4 HANA takes about 4 months on the cloud where you can turn on the servers in minutes. The key business drivers are that you already get an instance with several features to include your existing customizations including integrations, CI / CD for quick innovation with the core in place tightly coupled with these easy-to-do extensions.
