Join us in this last of a three-part Spring series featuring ASUG Research and smartShift expertise.

For the past two years, ASUG and smartShift have delved into the realms of custom code and clean core, particularly concerning the transition from ECC to SAP S/4HANA. Our extensive research involved surveying over 350 ASUG members, and complements what smartShift has heard from numerous SIs and hundreds of SAP customers worldwide.

Today, many SAP customers heavily rely on custom code to fulfill various operational needs, from industry-specific requirements to regulatory compliance and reporting. However, as businesses contemplate transitioning to SAP S/4HANA, managing custom code poses a significant challenge. While manual transformation seems like the default choice for many, is it truly the sole path forward?

Join Marissa Gilbert, Research Director at ASUG, and Arndt Hoffmann, CCO at smartShift, in the last segment of our three-part webcast series. In this session, we’ll delve into the strategic mindset needed as you approach SAP S/4HANA migration. A robust clean core demands well-structured, maintainable code. Join us to demystify clean core and pave the way for a successful migration.
