As Technology & business evolve, there is a distinct need for the technology platform to support the Change.

Key Drivers:

Technical Upgrade

Some of the key reasons for SAP Upgrades are:

  • Industry-driven technical Innovation
  • Vendor-driven technical Innovation
  • Business event requirements
  • Total Cost of Ownership reduction
  • Version De-support

Functional Upgrade

  • Stop or prevent business “Pain”.
  • Support new Lines of business or business Initiatives.
  • Extend/Improve existing processes and enhance Competitiveness.
  • Satisfy regulatory requirements.
  • Improve efficiency and fill in the white spaces.

As part of the SAP Upgrade Activities we undertake:

  • Complete AS-IS versus TO-BE system analysis
  • Analyze SAP system usage.
  • Analyze custom code, programs and objects.
  • Identify SAP standard code that could replace custom code.
  • Identify unused custom code.
  • Identify all impacted objects and modules.
  • Identify impacted roles and authorizations.
  • Identify impacted business processes.
  • Generate test plans.
  • Compare systems to ensure consistency and synchronization.

  • Inconsistencies in the ABAP dictionary.
  • Identify new transaction codes.
  • Identify any transaction codes that are now obsolete.

We use an automated tool to do a full system analysis and provide a risk & Impact assessment.

Unicode Conversion:

Most customers require unicode conversion for:

  • Managing Global business processes or Global Master data
  • Global master data containing multiple local language characters
  • J2EE and .NET integration (Java speaks Unicode only!) integration of third-party products that run on different code pages
  • The Unicode Standard was adopted by industry leaders (e.g., Apple, HP, IBM JustSystem, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Sun, Sybase, Unisys, and many others)
  • Unicode is required by modern standards such as XML, Java, ECMAScript (JavaScript), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), CORBA 3.0, and Wireless Markup Language (WML)
