This year, the renowned event for the SAP logistics community will take place virtually under the motto “Intelligent Solutions for Sustainable Logistics” on 17. November 2022, from 8:00 to 14:30. After an introductory keynote by Franz Hero, Head of Digital Supply Chain Development at SAP, participants can expect exciting presentations on transformation projects in warehouse and transport management from SAP customers from a wide range of industries. In addition, “Ask the Expert Sessions” with SAP logistics professionals and partner presentations on various topics will be offered.
At 12:30, LogiPlus founder Thilo Matheis will give a lecture with the title “Quo Vadis SAP WM? SAP EWM or Stock Room Management – we compare”. He will present the differences between the two WMS solutions. With the discontinuation of SAP WM, many companies are faced with the task of reorganising their warehouse management for the future. In addition, there are more and more automation solutions that need to be integrated. When planning the SAP WM migration, it is therefore important to find out exactly which warehouse management solution best supports the company’s specific requirements and processes.
“Especially since SAP WM will no longer be available in the near future, it is now important to define the target and the right migration route. Which warehouse management solution makes the most sense for your company? Do you need SAP EWM to map your processes? Or is SAP Stock Room Management with a reduced scope of services sufficient? We will provide appropriate answers to this in our presentation,” explains LogiPlus founder Thilo Matheis.

How LogiPlus supports you to migrate from SAP WM
Which solution is the right one always depends on the individual situation of a company and other factors, such as the number of warehouses, the SAP S/4HANA and business strategy, the required processes or the automation solutions used. The Scope Compliance Check offered free of charge by SAP can be an important first indicator of the scope of services a company needs in terms of the processes and functions required.
Additionally LogiPlus offers a pre-check with a site visit to record the initial situation, needs and challenges in order to subsequently be able to create a custom-fit recommendation for action and an individual migration roadmap.
In our whitepaper, we look at the approaching replacement of the SAP WM warehouse management system and the potential successor solutions SAP EWM and SAP Stock Room Management. Is the designated SAP WM successor SAP Stock Room Management with a reduced scope of services sufficient? Or do you need SAP EWM to map the individual processes and requirements?
