What moves you

In recent years, the demands on banks and insurance companies have grown enormously to execute existing processes as automatically as possible and at high speed. At the same time, the requirements for flexible reporting are increasing, and it must be possible to implement this efficiently in the shortest possible time. In the often fragmented system landscapes, this leads to high complexity, redundancy and thus increased change costs.

We will be happy to advise you on how to use the new SAP Business Suite S/4HANA to meet the requirements for automation and data quality.

Our service to you

Planning the conversion to S/4HANA

To get an overview of the location of individual functions within the S/4HANA target architecture, we offer you in-person or virtual demonstrations developed in KPMG’s own SAP Practice Lab. We use realistic case studies, which we can also prepare to meet your individual needs, for example, for the SAP modules FPSL, PaPM and FSDM.

In addition, we have established assessment processes and bring our experience to bear in creating your S/4HANA transformation roadmap. The following aspects are included here:

  • Evaluation of the maturity of each module, based on current project insights and development requests submitted
  • Implementation dependencies between individual SAP modules
  • Migration scenarios

In further mature planning processes, we offer complete SAP S/4HANA readiness checks across your organisation to provide you with planning certainty as to which steps and considerations need to be made as part of a preliminary study to best prepare your institution for the S/4HANA conversion.

S/4HANA preliminary study

We offer the following services as part of a S/4HANA preliminary study:

  • Definition of requirements for all affected areas and development of objectives

  • Transparent and objective preparation of management decision options using an established tool
  • Business case, including cost case analyses to uncover potential savings by identifying synergies in the context of transformation, process and architecture harmonisation and using cloud technology
