Brownfield migration to SAP S/4HANA or system conversion
Do you want to migrate to SAP S/4HANA without going through a complete overhaul of your system?
A technical migration to SAP S/4HANA is possible. It is commonly called a Brownfield implementation.
System conversion is a technical operation that does not require a reorganization of your organizational structure.
It improves your business processes so that they fit into the new SAP S/4HANA landscape. In this case, the system evolutions will have to integrate the new functionalities imposed by SAP S/4HANA.

The particularities of a Brownfield
- Minimalist migration and therefore lower cost;
- Exploitation of the potential of SAP S/4HANA can be achieved at a later stage than the migration;
- Step-by-step migration that allows the project to be tailored to the available budget and market conditions whilst to better leverage the business user experience;
- No need to extract and re-implement your data in a brand new system, it is already in the SAP system.
The Brownfield migration is on two axes:
- The technical side: IT experts and users are evolving the features.
- The functional side: improvements are mainly due to the new SAP interface, Fiori, which impacts the user experience. It makes it easier to interact with the SAP interface.
Unlike a Greenfield migration, the Brownfield approach is shorter because it keeps the same structure while improving the performance of your business processes.
