Our unique end-to-end Approach

Roadmap | Architecture | Implementation | Licenses | Infra or Cloud | 24x7 Support

We have a mission: We commit ourselves to our solutions and approach simply by guaranteeing our customers to stay within budget, dedicating ourselves and being responsible for the end result while doing all this within a certain and committed timeframe. This is one of the biggest assets we offer, of course next to our in-depth knowledge, experience, vision and passion.

We bring together the power of our Cloud or Infra partners by creating an unprecedented, tailor made cost efficient approach and offerings, based on over 65 HANA and S/4HANA Implementations or migrations.
The Approach contains the advice regarding Strategy, Roadmap, licenses, Solution architecture, Implementation in combination with the Infrastructure or Cloud models. It provides customers a complete end-to-end working and business accelerating solution, including the possibilities to prove the Business Values upfront via our unique Azure Private Cloud demo environment.

Strategy

With a fresh vision, business knowledge, best practices and enthusiasm that works inspiring, we think out-of-the-box and provide customers different quick-win business models and possible approaches that create value for the business and IT.

Based on a solid TCO case that supports and justify your investment, you take a decision on an implementation or migration. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of a system within an IT landscape is the sum of all direct and indirect costs associated with the system over its lifetime. The main cost drivers are hardware and software expenses, implementation and development efforts, as well as the costs of operation.

We see a lot of differences in offers between the different Hardware, consultancy and Hosting/Cloud vendors.

Based on the Business and IT requirements and the roadmap, customers must compare all aspects in detail to know the real costs and responsibilities, to make the right decision.

The components we take into account:
  • Roadmap, possible steps and architecture scenarios towards Suite on HANA, BW on HANA, S/4HANA EM and Analytics
  • Pros, cons and costs for Cloud, Hosting, on premise models for a new environment versus the current costs and responsibilities
  • The implementation or migration costs (including costs for redesign and custom development) based on your current environment and infra structure
  • The needed expertise and trainings to adopt the new technologies
  • Operational costs (technical and functional support)

Driven by Vision, Innovation and Experience

Roadmap

Part of the Strategy phase, we will translate the business and IT requirements into new solutions, technologies and profound applicable architectures. We will provide a full roadmap and phased approach with concrete short and long-term steps.

All the available and planned SAP S/4HANA innovations require SAP HANA, and migrating unlocks its potential. This raises a lot of key questions at existing SAP customers.

What are the migration scenarios to migrate the current environments? What will it cost (TCO)? Should we first migrate to HANA or can we already migrate to S/4HANA?

Based on our knowledge, expertise and customer cases for over the last 6 years with SAP HANA Projects, we developed an approach that will give customers an end-to-end overview of all elements.

Our Approach to define the Roadmap towards S/4HANA:

  • Define Business and IT Benefits towards Suite, BW on HANA, BW/4HANA, S/4HANA and Analytics.
  • Define and Provide a phased roadmap and architecture scenarios towards BW on HANA, BW/4HANA, S/4HANA EM and Analytics.
  • Define and provide High-level technical architecture (including Infra, Hosting or Cloud based models).
  • Define a greenfield implementation, upgrade and migration approach, based on the current SAP solutions and environment.
  • Define TCO and ROI versus current costs

Architecture

Together with the customer, we will define a detailed technical and functional architecture, including the impact of change, based on our experiences, knowledge and best practices.

The Architecture will cover SAP and non-SAP processes and applications:

  • Infrastructure and/or Cloud scenarios
  • The technical and functional components of SAP S/4HANA Enterprise Management
  • Analytics
  • Data Management
  • Big Data & IoT

Combining vision with excellence, we will Inspire you!

Implementation

We take the responsibility for the execution of a Program, subprojects, the change, co-ordination and budget. It's an end-to-end approach and contains the Implementation or Migration scenarios, Software, Infrastructure or our Azure Private Cloud Architecture. Our approach is based on over the 65 implementations or migrations combined with the proven SAP Activate methodology.

Customers can speed up the SAP S/4HANA deployment and spend more time innovating with SAP Activate.

S
AP Activate is the innovation adoption framework that expedites SAP S/4HANA implementations or migration throughout the customer lifecycle. It offers ready-to-run digitized business and technology processes, guided configuration, and next-generation methodology.

24x7 Support

Many outsourcing partners or Cloud Providers include a predefined set of SAP administration tasks into their standard service offering, which may result in paying for services one rarely or never uses.

At Expertum we take a different approach. Before setting up a list of items to be included into Remote System Management, we go through a detailed review with our customers in order to get a precise view of their requirements.
With this information, we define an ‘à la carte’ remote system management covering the services your organisation really needs. This can go from full outsourcing up to “just call us when you need us”.
Whether you need a temporary SAP sandbox for an SAP upgrade or implementation project or whether you want to us to host your SAP landscape all together, we can offer both.

Our International Remote Technical and Functional Support Services includes:

  • Clever monitoring
  • Remote interventions
  • Daily, weekly and monthly checks
  • Pro-active maintenance
  • Reviews of the SAP landscape
  • 24×7 access to the support desk (Functional and Technical Support)

Our International Cloud offerings include:

  • Azure Hybrid Cloud (on premise, Private and Public Cloud), support SAP and non-SAP environments
  • Provide infrastructure as a service (IAAS) for SAP landscapes
  • Extend IAAS with a 24×7 managed service offering
