During the popular course, System Conversion to SAP S/4HANA, learners expressed an interest in focusing on the technical and functional aspects of system conversion. This course will provide learners with a more detailed look at the functional topics with demos where possible and we provide a separate course focused on the technical topics.
The SAP S/4HANA Regional Implementation Group supports customers on their journey to SAP S/4HANA with their focus on customers transitioning to SAP S/4HANA who have chosen a system conversion approach. The topics in this course were selected based on the project experiences and frequently asked questions.
