DSAG Leipzig 18.10.2018, DAY 3

JiVS – The Right Approach attracted hundreds of visitors to our booth at the DSAG Annual Congress 2018 in Leipzig. Our bi-modal approach of separating from legacy ballast, before or during the transition to SAP S/4HANA, is consistently confirmed by customers, partners and SAP as the right path. This is the only way to switch to SAP S/4HANA at a reasonable cost, to minimize risks and downtimes during migration / conversion, and then operate the new SAP S/4HANA cost-effectively and agile. The feedback received confirms that the bi-modal approach of separating operational processes / applications from historical data ballast must now be incorporated into the deliberations and definition of the target architecture.

We would like to thank all visitors for the productive discussions and look forward to the next DSAG Annual Congress.
