Ask Approyo: SAP ECC vs. SAP S/4HANA

One common theme we hear from customers is the confusion in the market place around SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA. In this post, we will try to clear up the confusion and explain how the two solutions relate to one another.

What is SAP ECC?

SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) is the previous generation of SAP’s enterprise resource planning software. ECC provides modules covering a full range of industry applications, including finance, logistics, HR, product planning and customer service, linked together into a single, customizable system run on a database of the user’s choice.

What is SAP S/4HANA?

SAP S/4HANA is the successor of ECC. It is a natural evolution and not just a simple upgrade. Currently, SAP S/4HANA 1709 empowers every corner of your organization to deliver business results. SAP S/4HANA is the foundation for businesses to deploy machine learning and Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios based on SAP Leonardo capabilities, unifying transactional and analytical workloads in real time and helping you stay ahead of the competition.


The route to S/4HANA is achieved either by a system conversion from an ECC solution (including Suite on HANA) or a new install. A system conversion needs to take place with the reason being to enable the new simplified data model. You need to be conscious of what functionality you have lost from your existing system as part of the move to S4/HANA in order to then replace it.
