The clock is ticking for SAP customers. SAP has set a target date of 2025 to end support of Business Suite (also known as ECC). Sticking with SAP means moving to HANA as an underlying platform—which means facing the daunting prospect of a high-cost, tough-to-predict reimplementation effort.
SAP’s new business platform, S/4HANA, is an unproven choice, and most of the functionality that you’ve gotten used to in R/3 and Business Suite is still to be rewritten. SAP has stated that a massive portion of the previous code line will not make it over into the new software—meaning the processes you’re used to could be eradicated.
Many SAP customers like you have realized that their future with SAP requires a fundamental technology change, on a future platform that is still being built. In this year’s Morgan Stanley AlphaWise CIO Survey, 78 percent of SAP customers said they had no plans to upgrade to S/4HANA.
Faced with a reimplementation, thousands of customers like you are teaming up with a leader in cloud ERP. Cloud has fundamentally leveled the playing field for ERP, and Oracle is proud to lead this change.
SAP’s cloud suite is incomplete. Oracle's is fully integrated. The choice is clear.

You could move your legacy platform to the cloud, but this will still put you behind the innovation curve. Update cycles will lag, and SAP isn’t building AI and machine learning into S/4HANA; instead, it’s delivering those capabilities via separate platforms like Leonardo, and leaving you to do the work.
By contrast, Oracle ERP Cloud is built on machine learning, with new intelligence, capabilities, and best practices rolled out on a quarterly basis. And since we do the updates for you in the cloud, it’s the last upgrade you will ever do.
Wondering how Oracle Cloud stacks up against other finance solutions? Compare Oracle ERP Cloud to what Workday and SAP have to offer and you’ll see why Oracle is the superior solution for your business.
The move to ERP cloud is already in full swing. In a recent survey, more than three-quarters of respondents said they’ve already made the move or plan to do it soon. The top benefits cited:
Oracle ERP Cloud is years ahead of S/4HANA in public cloud product development. You get a regular cadence of innovation, 3.2x more ROI, and 52-percent lower TCO than on-premises software. And with new automation and migration tools from Oracle Consulting and thousands of Oracle partners, the move to the cloud is now easier than ever.
Don’t get stuck with yesteray’s ERP. Get tomorrow’s ERP, today—with Oracle.
