Migration of SAP authorizations

SIVIS S/4HANA Quick Check

S/4HANA Migration

Migration of SAP authorizations to SAP S/4HANA

More and more companies are gradually migrating to SAP S/4HANA. Often the migration of SAP authorizations is neglected. However, the transfer of an old authorization concept is usually technically impossible. We advise and support you during the migration of your SAP authorization concept to S/4HANA. Our S/4HANA Quick Check analyzes your authorization concept for S/4HANA compatibility and provides you with important insights into the effort required and concrete recommendations for action.

Migration of SAP authorizations

Changes of SAP authorizations in S/4HANA

The direct transfer of an old authorization concept from SAP-R3, ERP and ECC to SAP S/4HANA is usually not possible. S/4HANA changes the entire SAP system – also with the aim of reducing the complexity of the landscape. However, this also means that modules are omitted, processes change, new processes are created and others become redundant. Also many transactions no longer exist in S/4HANA. Therefore, it is technically not possible to adopt the existing SAP authorization concept without changes.

How does the SIVIS S/4HANA Quick Check work?

SIVIS S4/HANA Quick Check shows necessary adjustments and provides recommendations for action

The S/4 HANA Quick Check tells you which changes in your authorization concept are necessary to make it compatible with S/4 HANA. We also provide you with an effort estimation as well as concrete recommendations for action with appropriate measures for the optimal migration of your authorization concept to S/4HANA.

Analyzing your existing authorization concept

The SIVIS S/4HANA Quick Check provides you with an overview of the status quo of your authorization concept and the expected expenses within the scope of the S/4HANA migration. To do this, we evaluate your SAP authorization concept and carry out analysis. This allows us to identify which transactions in your roles are dropped, forwarded or replaced by SAP Fiori apps. Thanks to our software, which we temporarily install on your system, this can be done quickly and without much effort.

Report about necessary changes

The result of the analysis is a report that lists exactly which changes need to be made to your authorization concept to make it compatible with S/4HANA. The scope of this report depends mainly on your authorization concept. Depending on how your previous authorization concept was designed, the report may contain more or less “To Do’s”.

Recommended action to establish S/4HANA compatibility

The aim of the SIVIS S/4HANA Quick Check is to ensure that you can develop a fully functional authorization concept before your S/4HANA system goes live. Therefore, we will show you the results of the report in a presentation and define the appropriate measures for your optimal migration to S/4HANA together with you. You will receive concrete recommendations for implementing your SAP authorization concept. We also show you whether a revision of your existing authorization concept is useful or whether a complete redesign would make more sense. The recommendation for action naturally takes into account the individual requirements of your company.

Revision of the old authorization concept

Creation of a new authorization concept

Sometimes it is necessary or makes more sense to build a completely new SAP authorization concept that is S/4HANA compatible. The SIVIS Suite offers the right tools for this. We are happy to implement this for you.
