The need to ensure back-office core applications like SAP ECC efficiently integrate with and catch up with the pace of innovation of cloud-native applications.
Despite good reasons to move to S/4HANA, such as greater business agility, efficiency, and speed of innovation, the organization fails to put together a compelling upgrade business case.
