SAP Implementation: Start your project now with ALEAF

You want to use the full potential of SAP S/4HANA? You want to implement a lean, up-to-date and above all future-proof IT landscape?
In most cases, one way to do this is best: a new implementation, also known as a greenfield approach. SAP Greenfield means something like "on a greenfield site". The system is therefore set up from scratch.

Companies thus have the unique opportunity to make the change from an evolved and often heterogeneous IT landscape to a lean, harmonised, uniform and flexible ERP system.

Ultimately, however, it is not the path or the "colour" that is decisive, but the goal: i.e. not greenfield or brownfield, but basically a kind of futurefield, the contemporary and permanently lean architecture.

The best SAP solution for your business

If you are an SAP newcomer and do not yet work with an ERP system from SAP, then it is simple: the greenfield approach is the only way for you to implement SAP S/4HANA.

If, on the other hand, you are already using an ERP system from SAP, you primarily have the choice between two paths to SAP S/4HANA:

  • the New Implementation ("Greenfield") and

  • the System Conversion ("Brownfield").

Further approaches ("Selective Data Transformation") are usually always based on the System Conversion, which is enriched with a selective data migration.

SAP Greenfield vs. Brownfield

Brownfield means that SAP experts upgrade the existing SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA in one step. However, data and developments are also transferred - including old code, obsolete data and functions that either have no successor in SAP S/4HANA or were discontinued by SAP by the end of 2027.
If, on the other hand, you choose the greenfield approach, you make a clean cut between the previous ERP system and SAP S/4HANA. You create the foundation for a future-proof IT architecture and get the opportunity to resolve pain points in the course of the new implementation.

SAP Best Practice - close to the standard

With the greenfield approach, the software is implemented along the SAP best practice processes, i.e. close to the standard. In addition, the master data is taken over from the existing systems, if necessary also with cleansing and harmonisation.

The SAP Best Practices are pre-configured and immediately available business processes with which the basic requirements of companies can be fulfilled.
