    What are my options to migrate to SAP S/4HANA? Gerd Danner from SAP & Frank Schuler from BackOffice Associates Recorded: Apr 18 2018 60 mins

So, considering so many data migration projects run over time and/or over budget, the question to ask is how is your business planning to do this?

    This informative webinar will discuss the various migration options available and share best practice customer cases.
