Pourquoi les projets de mise en œuvre de SAP S/4HANA sont-ils souvent annulés ? [L'épidémie d'échecs de SAP ERP]

Beaucoup de nos clients ont opté pour des implémentations S/4HANA, et plusieurs ont déployé S/4HANA avec succès dans le passé. Par ailleurs, notre expertise ne se limite pas à cela ; nous assistons de nombreux clients avec d'autres éditeurs de logiciels, en les guidant dans leur transformation digitale. Une tendance récurrente que nous observons, en particulier avec les implémentations S/4HANA, est qu'un nombre croissant d'entre elles rencontrent des difficultés. Certaines échouent même, sont retardées ou complètement annulées. Lorsque nous évaluons notre base de clients et la gamme de technologies que nous aidons à déployer, ce sont les implémentations S/4HANA qui ressortent comme les plus problématiques. En comparaison avec Oracle, Microsoft D365, NetSuite, Workday, Epicor, et d'autres technologies, S/4HANA a la plus grande incidence de problèmes parmi notre clientèle. En effet, nous avons été témoins de plus d'annulations de mises en œuvre de S/4HANA que de tout autre déploiement technologique.

It's vital to understand the distinctions between these two, ascertain which is optimal for the organization, and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each. This discussion will delve into these considerations.

Es stellt sich die Frage: Warum ist das so? Und welche Maßnahmen kann man ergreifen, um einen ähnlichen Ausgang zu verhindern? Dieses Thema steht heute im Mittelpunkt der Diskussion.Viele unserer Kunden haben sich für S/4HANA-Implementierungen entschieden, und einige haben S/4HANA in der Vergangenheit erfolgreich eingesetzt. Darüber hinaus unterstützen wir zahlreiche Kunden mit anderen Softwareanbietern und begleiten sie bei ihrer digitalen Transformation. Ein wiederkehrender Trend, den wir insbesondere bei S/4HANA-Implementierungen beobachten, ist, dass immer mehr Menschen auf Hindernisse stoßen. Einige scheitern sogar daran, werden verschoben oder ganz eingestellt. Wenn wir unseren Kundenstamm und die Palette der Technologien, bei deren Einführung wir helfen, bewerten, sind es die S/4HANA-Implementierungen, die als die problematischsten herausstechen. Im Vergleich zu Oracle, Microsoft D365, NetSuite, Workday, Epicor, und anderen Technologien, verursacht S/4HANA die meisten Probleme bei unseren Kunden. In der Tat haben wir mehr Einstellungen von S/4HANA-Implementierungen erlebt als von jeder anderen Technologie-Implementierung.
