Digital Transformation

Responding to the challenges of the digital economy is a fundamental requirement for maintaining and pursuing growth objectives. As companies develop and follow new business models, IT organizations must take steps to meet new needs to support business processes, changes that at the IT level frequently require integration with a wide and diverse variety of IT applications that generally hinder a significant business transformation.


In Qintesi’s vision, a successful digital transformation strategy requires action at all levels of the IT ecosystem: from infrastructure, to data management and finally to the application layer.

Landscape Transformation & Optimization

SAP S/4HANA Adoption

Qintesi has many years of experience in implementing SAP solutions and migrating previous releases to SAP S/4HANA.

The numerous certifications attest to the high level of specialization of our consultants and their professionalism in the design and construction of technological infrastructures and high quality application solutions, which allow our customers to concretely benefit from the value of adopting a SAP S/4HANA system. 

Our experts, through dedicated assessment services, support customers in identifying the best approach to migration according to organizational priorities in order to:

  • Provide a clear vision of the target IT landscape;
  • Minimize project costs and risks and the discontinuity of business processes;
  • Evaluate the risks of the implementation phase to avoid costly adaptations in later phases of the project;
  • Safeguard the investments made in customizations and contextualizations;
  • Enable the implementation of new features and the transformation of business processes to pursue the objectives of the organization;
  • Motivate the necessary changes to the landscape as-is to pursue the business objectives;
  • Apply best practices to improve business processes and performance.

 

Qintesi professionals provide Clients with a complete and effective conversion project which includes:

  • The set-up of the “on premise” or “Cloud” infrastructure;
  • The technical conversion of the environment;
  • The implementation and configuration of new features;
  • Activation of the new SAP FIORI user interface.

The preliminary analysis report for SAP S/4HANA is a tool that allows you to evaluate the risks and main opportunities of a migration to a SAP S/4HANA system

The Preliminary Assessment consists of a guided questionnaire that allows you to collect a set of information divided between technical and functional areas. The main goal is to package a high-level proposition for a migration project to SAP S/4HANA, contextualized in terms of:

  • Sizing of the HANA appliance (valid for both the Cloud and OnPrem solution);
  • Migration scenario suggested according to the strengths and weaknesses of the landscape as-is and the main drivers that can guide towards a specific type of migration.

 The activity does not involve any burden and commitment on the part of the customer and the result will be shared in special analysis meetings with Qintesi process experts.

Qintesi reserves the right not to share the questionnaire with competing companies.

 

The Qintesi SAP S/4HANA Deep Assessment is an in-depth assessment aimed at a detailed analysis of the migration scenarios from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA, which sees as main steps:

  • Verifying if the as-is systems are suitable to support the conversion or require preliminary system interventions;
  • Checking the compatibility of Add-ons, Business Function and Industry Solution present on the as-is system.
  • Using the HANA Readiness Check and Quick Sizer tools to carry out an in-depth analysis of the systems and to define a strategy to be adopted on existing processes and applications;
  • Presenting in a Discovery Workshop detailed SAP S/4HANA functionalities relating to some macro-processes selected by the Customer

 

What is the real value for the customer?

  • Punctual sizing of the HANA "machine";
  • Analysis and identification of the processes impacted by mandatory changes ";
  • Analysis and identification of relevant SAP Fiori Applications;
  • Analysis and identification of the business roadmap for the processes detected to-be (Discovery Workshop);
  • Recommended approach to migration;
  • SAP S/4HANA Deployment Plan which defines a transformation path that includes a fit gap analysis vs best practice, a comparison between alternative scenarios and the identification of a better match between processes and systems;

Application Modernization

With the migration to SAP S/4HANA, the application scenario in every functional area is enriched with new features, in an end-to-end digital architecture based on a single platform.

The central element is represented by SAP S/4HANA, which is responsible for managing the most significant processes and which can be extended with new features through a series of application solutions mainly of the SaaS type.

In the context of application modernization, Qintesi considers four main areas:

  • Next Generation Processes: new features not present in previous versions of the SAP ERP;
  • New Analytics: analytical applications that provide dashboards for real-time data processing;
  • User Experience: user experience innovation with the replacement of SAP transactions with SAP Fiori apps (UI5, Web);
  • Next Generation Application: applications that leverage the SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP or SCP);

 

Qintesi boasts recognized experience in numerous application contexts and has implemented innovative solutions based on the SAP S/4HANA platform for its customers.
