Many organisations are migrating from their older SAP ECC6 solution to S/4HANA, the digital core for the future. S/4HANA comes packaged with EWM rather than the older SAP WM. SAP has made very few enhancements to WM over the past several years and have targeted all new investment on EWM. Critically, SAP will not be supporting the WM solution after 2025.

If your considering SAP Fiori apps or ITS Mobile for EWM then take a deeper look. Both Fiori and ITS Mobile have significant drawbacks for warehouse use. They are browser based which slows performance, require expensive coding to reflect specific warehouse processes, struggle with offline and are unable to leverage all the features of a modern mobile device.
There are some recurring problems when it comes to commercial evaluation of mobile options Some evaluations do not consider the Total Costs of Ownership (TCO) over the contract. Important costs get overlooked including, the inhouse IT costs to develop and maintain a solution. Many evaluations only consider the costs of the mobile solution and not the value and benefits derived.
