Transform and validate SAP S/4HANA with VITAL

Life Sciences Alliance

SAP S/4HANA transformation and validation

LSA has developed the VITAL approach for the transformation of SAP ECC into an intelligent company in the life sciences. VITAL stands for a validated and innovative transformation approach for regulated industries such as pharmaceuticals and medical technology.

Conversion and validation go hand in hand to ensure the most efficient and smoothest possible transition to the smart enterprise. Computerised system validation is embedded in the procedure accordingly and thus supports a risk-minimised project process. With regard to validation, the focus can be placed both on the emerging delta and on a re-validation based on the Digital Process Landscape.

The conversion to S/4HANA is tool-supported with minimal downtime and using automated mechanisms that have been used successfully several times. Different transformation approaches can be used in a targeted manner, both brownfield, with the transfer of all data, and an approach based purely on selected data in time slices. We also support you during the transformation processes using our solution components for optimisation and the generation of initial added value for your company.

In order to continuously benefit from innovations on a scalable platform, we show you the way out of today’s ECC world towards the intelligent enterprise. By using powerful tools such as Cristal Bridge and Signavio, we are able to show you far-reaching optimisation potential even before the technical change of the platform and thus not only focus on necessary changes.

Release change and validation of SAP are not separated from each other organisationally and methodically in order to avoid extra work, inconsistencies and errors!

We accompany you on your way to becoming an intelligent company and support you in making the most of the added value of this transformation. Characterised by an evaluation based on Business Process Intelligence even before the start of the technological platform change, we show you the possible potentials at the earliest possible stage, advise you based on methods such as Business Model Canvas, Innovation Boards and other business analysis approaches to establish the business models tailored to you with corresponding innovative processes and functions and to increase your future security and competitiveness.

Following or parallel to the technological transformation, we work with you to develop the path to the future so that you can permanently benefit from innovations for your business and focus on the essential value-creating activities, e.g. by automating regression tests to reduce the efforts in the affected departments to a minimum.

Establish new business models by easily integrating the required solutions from the SAP Ecosystem portfolio. Automate your processes through technological approaches such as Conversational AI, Intelligent Robot Process Automation or Workflow Management to create more freedom. Enable your departments to realise small adjustments and parameterisations themselves through LowCode/NoCode solutions, such as AppGyver, and thus reduce dependencies.
