SAP S/4HANA Transformation

With the SAP S/4HANA Transformation Factory, we provide comprehensive, step-by-step support throughout the transformation process.


To support these demanding customers and ensure maximum reliability and deadline observance even in complex projects, cablex relies on smooth-running processes. The demands on day-to-day project management are thus extremely high.
SAP S/4HANA is integral to this. SAP Focused Build provides employees with a contemporary, state-of-the-art working environment with the latest tools to support them in their daily work. It ensures that any problems or bottlenecks that arise in ongoing projects are detected at an early stage.


For the implementation of SAP S/4HANA and SAP FSM, cablex opted for an integrated approach using SAP Focused Build based on the SAP Solution Manager. This created an integrated development approach with a clearly defined requirements-to-deploy process.

cablex can now demonstrate project and development progress at any time based on real data from development and production systems. Project progress is measured on the basis of data from the system and can be viewed by all project participants at any time. This leads to a strengthening of governance and greater audit compliance. Using state-of-the-art SAP Fiori user interfaces leads to significantly improved user-friendliness.
