Subscription for SAP S/4HANA Conversion including SAP services and Microsoft Azure cloud operations // SAP S/4HANA cooperation agreement with SNP signed
Filderstadt, 25 June 2020 – Conversion/4 is an innovative support concept and pricing model that leading consulting and IT group All for One Group AG is offering SAP user companies. Three configurable subscription packages, each for a fixed monthly fee, make it easier for businesses to shift to SAP S/4HANA.
»Base« is the smallest package for converting an SAP ECC 6.0 system to SAP S/4HANA and includes a release upgrade, support, full hardware and IT infrastructure from EUR 17,900 per month. »Move« and »FastForward« are two larger packages that also include process transformations. With the aid of a configurator, customers can decide which processes they want to transform. By opting for one of the packages, they reap the benefits of the extensive process and SAP expertise that All for One Group – leading SAP partner in the German-speaking region – has to offer.
The underlying technology is supplied by the SNP Software-Suite CrystalBridge and the SNP Transformation process Bluefield™ by SNP Schneider-Neureither & Partner SE, Heidelberg, both of which partially automate the SAP S/4HANA conversions. All for One Group entered into a cooperation agreement with SNP to specifically adapt these processes for the midmarket. The SAP S/4HANA systems are operated on Microsoft Azure. This is the cloud platform that All for One Group already uses to provide support to several hundred SAP user companies in line with the strategy adopted by SAP and Microsoft. The two companies are collaborating on a wide scale along a joint roadmap (»Embrace« Programme).
As Lars Landwehrkamp, CEO of All for One Group AG, explains: »In the years to come, a lot of our customers are going to have to transform their SAP landscapes to SAP S/4HANA. This transformation often poses a huge challenge with loads of unanswered questions: How much is it going to cost? What IT infrastructure do I need? Do we have the manpower and knowledge to operate the new SAP S/4HANA and to keep it up to date? How do I leverage the process improvements made possible by SAP S/4HANA? Our Conversion/4 subscription alleviates these worries for our customers as it gives them four key modules for a fixed monthly fee: Firstly, the technical conversion to SAP S/4HANA, which we can perform particularly efficiently, thanks to our partnership with SNP. Secondly, an all-inclusive service package for SAP S/4HANA covering the cloud infrastructure and operation. Thirdly, business process improvements – in the exact measure required, and fourthly, ongoing innovations, such as release upgrades are included«, Landwehrkamp explains the model. According to Dr. Andreas Schneider-Neureither, CEO of SNP: »We are delighted to have secured this close cooperation with All for One Group, which is one of the leading SAP partners in the German-speaking region. Businesses benefit from a software-based transformation that guarantees a secure and fast migration to SAP S/4HANA while at the same time optimising the IT landscape during ongoing operations«.
Gregor Bieler, General Manager Partner Business at Microsoft Germany explains: »Microsoft Azure as the platform for SAP systems especially provides midmarket customers with huge advantages due to performance capabilities from scalability to global availability, right up to services that include the areas of IoT, machine learning or advanced analytics. Together with All for One Group we will enable customers to drive their digital transformation«.
Dr Daniel Holz, Managing Director SAP Germany: »This innovative new subscription model offered by All for One Group for migrating our midmarket installed base includes a clearly structured approach. This makes it much easier for our joint customers to benefit even faster from the significant added value of SAP S/4HANA. And since this joint offer of All for One and SNP includes not just conversion, but also business process transformation as a major pillar, maximum advantage can be taken of the huge potential offered by SAP S/4HANA«.
All for One Group plans to use its new Conversion/4 subscription to enable not only its SAP customer base but also numerous other SAP user companies in the German-speaking region to achieve smart migration to SAP S/4HANA.
