Target image of an integrated SAP financial architecture

In finance and accounting, SAP is one of the leading providers with the S/4 HANA platform. S/4 offers the possibility to combine many processes in the area of accounting, controlling, planning, consolidation and closing on one platform. For banks and insurance companies we have developed reference architecture on the part of ADWEKO. The reference architecture is based on best practices and is continuously updated and developed.

The goal is to derive the future target image of the financial architecture from the comparison of the reference architecture and the actual architecture by means of a structured procedure.

We recommend that the target image of the SAP financial architecture be developed as part of a preliminary study project and coordinated with the stakeholders.

Here are the services you can expect from us:

  • Potential analysis from the comparison of reference and actual architecture
  • Evaluation from options resulting from S/4
  • Decision template taking into account qualitative and quantitative criteria
  • Roadmap and process model for the transformation project
  • Benefit analysis and business case for the transformation
  • Consideration of relevant practical experience from comparable transformation projects in order to benefit as a "smart follower" from lessons learned
