What is Your SAP S/4 HANA Transition Plan?

In my role at Revelation Software Concepts I regularly brief the relevant analyst community on our SAP change control automation software roadmap. Quite often, due to our specialized knowledge I get asked my thoughts on SAP’s strategic directions and on various SAP Applications.
