Application Strategy and Development for SAP S/4HANA and Cloud Research
In This Report:
With digital transformation initiatives maturing and the market presenting an increasing range of new software solutions, IT departments are developing sophisticated application strategies and roadmaps to deliver quality applications rapidly without blowing up budgets.
For SAP customers, the critical challenge is how they can monetize their past SAP investments while rapidly deploying applications that takes them to the future – with minimum business risk. With most customers either on or planning their journey to SAP S/4HANA as well as to the cloud, this challenge breaks down into several complex questions:
- How do we monetize our significant past investments in ABAP custom code and extensions?
- How can we build a “clean core” to be nimbler in the future and reduce technical debt?
- What platform can help us deliver modern applications such as analytics, bots/voice, and AI/ML effectively?
- Can low-code/no-code platforms be a viable option to accelerate migration and rollouts?
Juxtaposed with the above questions are the significant challenges of integration, expertise, and budgets.
SAPinsider surveyed 141 IT professionals during January and February 2022 on their application strategy, goals, and challenges. We also explored the application platforms being used, developed, or planned. We found that while many companies have an enterprise-wide application strategy to meet their goals of business process support and rapid application deployment, nearly half are not satisfied with its impact.
