Moving to SAP S/4HANA® with BLUEFIELD™


Move to SAP S/4HANA® at lightning speed with SNP CrystalBridge® by harnessing our guided, software-based procedure


Tackle Your Move to SAP S/4HANA® Seamlessly with a Software-based Procedure 

The advantages of SAP S/4HANA® are obvious: process harmonization, real-time analytics, usability, optimized data management, innovation and more.  

Yet there are many reasons to postpone the move to S/4, such as long project durations, hybrid IT landscapes, downtimes, data cluttering, and a lack of expertise and resources.  

The first step is always the hardest – but not with SNP.  We can help you to gain a quick and efficient overview of upcoming action items. We start with a detailed analysis of your systems, which our software SNP CrystalBridge® performs at lightning speed and fully automated. 

Afterward, we evaluate the results together and develop your customized SAP S/4HANA® strategy. The focus is on your data: The question is which data you want to migrate and which historical data you want to archive. The combination of our BLUEFIELD™ approach, your clean data and the right data archiving strategy will save you costs early on in the project, allowing you to create your ideal S/4 roadmap. In this way, you are perfectly prepared to leverage the full potential of S/4HANA.

In a single go-live project, we automatically migrate and update your data while implementing other necessary projects, such as the conversion to business partners or the New GL. Our rule-based and highly automated transformation enables you to migrate with maximum speed, accuracy and efficiency while minimizing disruptions to ongoing operations.  

Quality assurance integrated into the software notifies you when errors occur and ensures a standardized process for the SAP S/4 project. This applies to all relevant levels, from the database to applications and the reporting level. 

This allows you to benefit from the advantages of SAP S/4HANA® tomorrow and to spend your time on other projects free from worry.

The Advantages of an SAP S/4 Transformation with SNP CrystalBridge® and BLUEFIELD™



Fast planning:

By scanning your system, data and interfaces are analyzed in detail and visualized in a user-friendly way. A blueprint of your SAP S/4 project is created.


Legacy systems are decommissioned and legacy data is stored in a cost-effective and audit-proof manner. Multiple projects can be combined into a single go-live. Downtime optimization keeps business downtime as low as possible. In addition, testing effort can be reduced significantly

Minimized risks:

Inconsistencies are detected in time. The near-zero downtime approach reduces disruptions to ongoing operations to a minimum

Individual design:

Open items as well as historical data can be migrated selectively. By decoupling the data from the system transformation, the new environment can be designed flexibly and according to your requirements


Our software includes over 25 years of transformation experience packed into best practices such as streamlined project workflows and an extensive library of transformation objects 

Quality assurance:

Continuous quality control and safeguarding for individual project steps

Simplified management:

Control global S/4 migrations across different time zones and view the current project status at any time via a web interface

Streamlined testing:

Errors are corrected before the go-live. Automated tests reduce the manual effort

Audited independently:

BLUEFIELD™ powered by CrystalBridge® is certified by PwC and EY
