What is SAP ECC?

SAP ECC was originally developed as a monetary software package in the 1970s.

Also know as SAP ERP, is designed to integrate core business functions of an organization in one place. Replaces SAP R/3 and was developed on software. It has a modular design, which makes it easy to make it customizable.

SAP ECC provides an integrated overview of an organization's CORE business processes, from FI, logistics or HR. Used by many departments in a company. It was the foundation for on-premises S/4HANA cloud and S/4HANA cloud. It has many interactions between components, which makes it flexible but also more complex.

Comment that SAP plans to suspend the SAP ECC support in 2027, so SAP urges ECC users to migrate to SAP S/4HANA before that date.

What is SAP S/4HANA?

SAP S/4HANA stands for SAP Business Suite 4 SAP HANA and is a Comprehensive and intuitive next-generation business solution, developed by SAP SE.   

SAP ECC was compatible with other traditional databases, such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2, however, with the introduction of the SAP HANA platform, SAP has been actively driving the migration of SAP ECC customers to SAP S4HANA, which is runs exclusively on the SAP HANA database. SAP HANA features in-memory processing capabilities, which means that data is stored in main memory instead of on disks, allowing for fast and accelerated access to data. This provides improved performance for real-time operations and analysis in SAP ECC systems.

One of the great milestones of SAP S4HANA is the arrival of SAP FIORI, which is a design system that allows you to create business apps with a consumer-level user experience, turning casual users into SAP experts with simple screens that run on any device.

SAP S/4HANA was designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the capabilities of the SAP HANA database. Using a memory-based architecture, SAP S/4HANA delivers optimized performance and fast response times for business operations and real-time analytics.

Besides the performance advantage, the SAP HANA database too Provides advanced analytical and data processing capabilities, such as predictive analytics, data mining, and real-time text processing. These capabilities allow organizations to make more informed decisions based on real-time data.

The path that SAP marks is directed towards SAP HANA and S/4HANA in the cloud and the options we have are:

  • Keep ECC updated to the latest version since it will continue to be developed by SAP for a little longer and postpone the migration for a later time.
  • Migrate to S/4HANA and start experiencing a whole series of advantages such as: process simplification, better information analysis, real-time analysis, interconnected environments, Fiori user experience.
