ERP Services

ERP implementations, from the first meeting to going live, can take months to even years depending on the scale of the project. The process is complex and a range of specialized services are required for a successful implementation.


At Athena we believe the success of an implementation is based on the foundation of a full project scoping, including:

·  Needs Assessment and ERP GAP Analysis

·  Business Process Definition User and Role Workflows

·  Transaction Case Examples

·  Detailed Project Implementation Plan


Once the scope is fully articulated and confirmed, Athena uses a test environment and an Agile method to execute the range of implementation tasks in parallel rather than sequentially. This process ensures the testing, verification and confirmation of: data migration, configurations, customizations, workflows, integrations, reports, dashboards and any other facet of the implementation.


Athena has been focusing mainly on SAP solutions. SAP landscape has changed from mainframe to client-server to eventually onto to Cloud.


S/4HANA is SAP's next-generation business suite built on the advanced in-memory platform SAP HANA. We can help you deploy in the cloud, On-premises or as a hybrid model, connecting your processes with live information & instant insights.


SAP S/4HANA uses SAP Fiori to deliver a consumer-style user experience. It unifies applications such as Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Advanced Planning & Optimisation (APO) and Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) in one single system, supported by a single database.
