What You'll Learn in this Webinar

Migrating to SAP S/4 HANA is a critical (and necessary) move for many organizations, but also a decision that will have unanticipated compliance, security, and audit impacts for years to come.

There are four primary approaches to implementation (from fully on-premise to the multi-tenant cloud edition). Understanding the GRC and security impacts of each approach is the key to avoiding difficult, costly corrective efforts down the line.

Focal Point's top SAP experts will share real-world takeaways and factors organizations should consider before they upgrade. They'll also uncover the often-hidden security and compliance ramifications of each HANA edition, and provide actionable guidance for business and technology leaders tasked with making the decision.

Key Takeaways:

  • A comparison of the On-Premise, HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC), Single-tenant Edition (STE), and Multi-tenant Edition (MTE) approaches
  • The pros and cons of each implementation option
  • Critical SAP security considerations 
  • How SAP GRC integrates with each approach
  • Key implementation considerations
