ABeam Consulting Ltd.

ABeam Consulting Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Toshinori Iwasawa, president) today began offering ABeam Cloud® Conversion Express Factory for SAP S/4HANA®, a service for smooth conversion to SAP S/4HANA, the next-generation business suite offered by SAP SE.

Today, there are 1000 companies that have gone live with SAP S/4HANA worldwide. SAP S/4HANA is the digital core that provides broad functionality and a high degree of flexibility for businesses of all sizes, in all industries, and can be deployed on premise, in the cloud or with a hybrid approach. SAP S/4HANA has helped customers worldwide achieve positive business outcomes including improved employee’s productivity, real time access to information using in-memory technology and support for digital transformation.

To support enterprises with their digital transformation, ABeam Cloud® Conversion Express Factory for SAP S/4HANA® sets up a new team, or “Factory”, of specialists to handle the system conversion to SAP S/4HANA®. This is a support service that ensures high-quality work within a short timeframe.

The key elements of the service can be summarized as follows.

  1. A team of specialists in SAP products & services, known as a “Factory”, is formed.
    The various customizations and data changes that arise in systems conversion are handled with pre-modeled procedures.
  2. The client’s actual system data is copied into the ABeam Cloud® environment, the business innovation platform owned by ABeam Consulting. The Factory team then conducts an initial conversion, and when the task is complete, provides the environment in back-up and transfer file formats
  3. By offering the service through the cloud and at offshore locations, ABeam Consulting is able to provide the service at low cost.
  4. A wide range of additional optional services are also available, including additional function settings (e.g.,SAP® Fiori activation, etc.) and external functions.

Companies that take advantage of this service have the conversion handled by expert consultants working within a secure cloud environment. Our experienced experts can convert systems efficiently and cut down on much of the time and labor involved. Having the work handled by a team that specializes in conversion results in high-quality service. The assigned Factory team works in close cooperation with an ABeam Consulting Liaison Team formed at SAP headquarters in Germany. This makes it possible to continually offer the most up-to-date information on SAP products and services, resulting in access to the most appropriate recommendations and the best optional services.

While the pricing of this service varies depending on client need and scope of application, fees begin at approximately JPY 9.8 million. We are making proposals to potential clients for conversion to SAP S/4HANA®, with the goal of high quality digital transformations for many clients in Japan and international in 2018 and beyond.
