Japan, September 14th, 2021 – Information Services International-Dentsu, Ltd. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President, CEO & COO: Ryoichi Nawa; hereinafter, “ISID”) and cbs Corporate Business Solutions Asia Pacific (cbs Asia Pacific) collaborate to offer jointly SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition to the Japanese market. Managing Director of Asia Pacific, Holger Bock and Representative Director for Japan, Christian Ketterer signed the partnership agreement on September 1, 2021.

Under this agreement, both parties provide a wide range of consulting services to SAP customers combining SAP S/4HANA Migration Total Support Service provided by ISID and cbs’ unique software-based SAP S/4HANA transition capabilities. Customers benefit by maximizing business benefits while minimizing the business impact while moving to SAP S/4HANA.

“We are happy to collaborate with ISID to promote Selective Data Transition. With ISID’s insights in the Japanese market, we are sure that the clients in Japan will benefit greatly with this flexible migration approach.” said Harald Sulovsky, founder and CEO of cbs group.


Background and Outline of The Partnership

With SAP ECC 6.0 mainstream support ending in 2027, more companies consider the latest SAP S/4HANA migration. In the past, the mainstream approach migrating to SAP S/4HANA was either a brownfield approach simply converting existing systems without any improvements or a greenfield approach to reassert the system from scratch.

In contrast, SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition with cbs Enterprise Transformer® allows more flexibility to fullfil business and IT needs on customers’ transition path, keep proven and future-proof business processes, but also implement improvements achieving real business benefits for customers.

ISID has led its SAP S/4HANA migration centered on 3rd-Party SAP upgrade support service and its own “SAP S/4HANA migration total support service”. By combining ISID insight with cbs know-how and tools, we provide our customers with the best migration method for SAP S/4HANA migrations.
