From NAV to SAP


A pretty general question:

How well does a standardized version of NAV (including logistics and finance components etc) fit in a standardized version of SAP Hana? Will SAP fully absorb NAV easily?

  • Hi Dek,

    Could you please explain your question in more details so that it will help other to guide/answer on it.

    Best Regards,


  • With NAV you mean Microsoft Dynamics NAV (Navision)?

    That would be a very tough question to answer, because you would first need to know all the standard and possibly custom functionality that is used and required by the customer in NAV and second how to match that into standard and possibly custom functionality in SAP (S/4Hana I assume). Third, for the possible gaps you would need to find out how it can be done with either available SAP addons or applications or custom development. Also the gained new available out of the box functionalities need to be considered. Fourth, the roadmap with future developments of both applications is something to look at as well.

    This would require a series of very analytical workshops, including IT, business, management and consultants.

    In general, I would assume the two systems should offer the „same“ basic functionality to provide a company a decent, sufficient and extendable ERP system. It often also comes down to the companies IT strategy, license negotiations, maintenance costs, as well as likes and dislikes of the management in charge of making the software decisions when choosing a software product over the other.

  • Great, thanks for your answers so far! Indeed, Microsoft Navision (2018 and aprox 95% standardized) is considered to be transfered to SAP(HANA). I am just looking to get a grasp of what it takes if the main goal would be to spend as little as possible efforts in customizing SAP. I thought that 'by default' NAV functionality fits in SAP/HANA to a major extend.
