In a rapidly changing world, the user experience (UX) plays a vital role in determining the success of a product or application. A high-quality UX becomes crucial for capturing and retaining business user attention, satisfaction, and engagement. The internet and mobile apps have demonstrated that a user interface can be self-explanatory, without the need for a user guide to understand how to navigate and enter data on a new website or in a new app.

During an organization’s SAP S/4HANA journey, the lack of attention paid to data can be an all-too-common pitfall, causing significant delays and cost overruns regardless of how well the system is constructed. We strongly recommend that companies lay the foundation for a strong data conversion strategy well in advance of the start of the implementation. If data preparation and data conversion are addressed and well planned prior to the start of the project, then one of the key risk areas for most projects will be largely mitigated before resource bandwidth is stretched thin. This approach is beneficial and will be a driving factor in the program’s success.
