The move to S/4HANA is imminent and many companies are struggling with this mammoth implementation.
Why are customers worried about the shift to S/4HANA?
There are many reasons why SAP customers are hesitant about this move, but it primarily comes down to the following:
Customers do not see it as a ‘lift-and-shift’ upgrade but rather a full system reimplementation which will be a big effort and most likely time consuming.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to be like that. We at Cross ALM have developed cross connectors to help simplify this process by making it more agile.
This will enable companies to save time in achieving rapid decisions, more innovation & higher efficiency.
Today’s topic will focus on CC3 our Cross Connector for Jira for Focused Build.
With this excellent solution, you can use the Jira Board in addition to the Solution Manager to track all requirements. The connector allows you to link your agile Jira software to the Requirement to Deploy process for introducing S/4HANA. Focused Build, as an extension to the existing processes in Solution Manager, it is a set of predefined processes that allow for a different perspective and handling of S/4 projects. The Focused Build Connector aims to connect your Solution Manager to Jira projects to give your business an advantage over the competitors in the introduction of S/4HANA.
