“This Magic Quadrant evaluates 20 service providers’ capabilities to deliver SAP S/4HANA application services on a worldwide basis. It is focused on the full life cycle of SAP S/4HANA application services, spanning project-based assessment, as well as implementation, through multiyear application evolution and management services (AMS). Analysts evaluate service providers for their ability to deliver a discrete or comprehensive set of assessment, implementation and management services for clients worldwide, across the SAP S/4HANA version 1709 or later and any SAP S/4HANA Cloud version.”
The Gartner report states, “Assessment and planning services are discrete, project-based services to assess the impact of either a new SAP S/4HANA implementation or a migration from a legacy platform (or platforms) to SAP S/4HANA. These services include advisory and potentially proof of concept (POC) and cover the analysis of all SAP S/4HANA products, applications, databases, analytics, middleware, mobile and other technologies (on-premises and cloud-based).”
It goes on to say: “Implementation services are discrete, project-based implementations of SAP S/4HANA applications in the context of either business transformation or technical migration without ongoing management responsibilities.”
Commenting on application evolution and management services, Gartner states “Application evolution and management services are ongoing services focused on SAP S/4HANA applications that are provided as part of a multiyear-based agreement and typically managed against defined quality metrics.”
