Make sure that you realize the impact that it is going to have on the business. It is a really good product. When you have a private deployment and you want to make a change, it will take you one hour. When it is in the cloud and you want to make a change, it will take 15 days. If you are going for cloud deployment, make sure you take into account these timeframes. I would rate SAP S4HANA Cloud an eight out of ten.

The advice that I would give to others looking into implementing the S/4HANA cloud is to prepare your organization on the front-end before you even go down the path of any ERP implementation. Get your organization right-minded in the beginning, then go down the path. You need buy-in and training. Companies talk about doing that, but they do not do that. That lack of follow-through is why they end up failing with their implementation. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the S/4HANA Cloud as a good, solid eight or nine. Choosing between the two, I go with eight. That gives them something more to shoot for.
