Learn how SAP Transformation Navigator provides SAP customers with clear guidance to chart their digital innovation path. The navigator is a complimentary, self-service tool, which guides you through your digital transformation by generating a product roadmap of recommended SAP products and solutions tailored to your business.
SAP customers and partners can access the navigator with their SAP S-User ID credentials. Share your current IT landscape (information is automatically derived from the customer profile) and select your business and IT priorities, and the navigator will analyze your current product landscape and create a custom product map. This shows your current and recommended SAP products and specific transition type, and depicts a list of the required transformation projects. The navigator generates a set of guides providing the business, technical, and transformation views.
The Business Guide depicts SAP’s take on the industry’s breakthrough trends and strategic objectives, the summary of the customer’s business capability preferences, and their value driver aspirations. It also offers change management, business case and realization tracking way forward.
In the Technical Guide, we cover the digital framework and reference landscape outlook, summarize the customer’s go-to guidance on the currently used applications, and list advanced system and landscape analysis options.
The Transformation Guide presents overall transformation scenarios and SAP services, summarizes the customer’s transition heatmap and prioritization, and outlines the planning, timeline, and way forward.
These guides, along with information about transition services, solution integration, and a value-based business case, provide the perfect starting point for your digital transformation journey.
