SAP HANA FastLaunch™ Workshop

Fast-track and launch your SAP HANA project

Offering the most comprehensive project planning & preparation session for your SAP HANA initiative.

Whether you’re considering BW on HANA, Business Suite on HANA, or S/4, our SAP HANA FastTrack workshop is designed to fast-track the launch of your SAP HANA initiative. We begin with an in-depth analysis of the current business and technical environment, which is then used to develop a long-term plan and migration strategy for SAP HANA.

Upon completion of the workshop, you will have all of the components necessary to launch a successful HANA project, including detailed hardware and sizing recommendations, comprehensive implementation project plan, required project team makeup, project timelines and milestones, along with a detailed understanding of the total implementation cost.
