This fun and interesting project is a high-level challenge based on a real-world problem. You’ll identify key players in the proposed project and take the necessary steps to understand their current technical landscape. You’ll identify their business requirements and develop a solution proposal. Once you’ve obtained sign off from the customer, you’ll then identify the key technology elements you need to cover and assess the stakeholders and other SAP professionals you’ll be working with. You’ll work on and present your design, including your assumptions, proposed recommendations, and other considerations. Then you’ll implement your proposed solution and complete QA/testing activities. And finish off by creating a Post-Implementation Review Report documenting the lessons learnt and the future roadmap.
Overall, this project presents an ideal opportunity to gain experience in assessing the digital transformation drivers in a real-life situation.
By the end of this project, you will be able to:
Review, understand and respond to a customer implementing a new SAP solution.
