Course Summary

SAP Central Business Configuration is a new tool that will make it possible to configure a business process spanning different SAP solutions from one central place. SAP Central Business Configuration supports the configuration of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, but aims at seamless implementation of end-to-end business processes across SAP’s entire Intelligent Enterprise Suite. Every new SAP S/4HANA Cloud customer uses SAP Central Business Configuration for their implementation.

In this course, you’ll learn about the capabilities of SAP Central Business Configuration, the customer value it brings, the key features it includes, and how it supports the implementation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud is the first solution supported by SAP Central Business Configuration. You’ll learn how SAP Central Business Configuration aims to reduce configuration efforts, increase flexibility, speed up company rollouts, and support partner extensions. You’ll also learn about key features such as Project Experience and scoping, the setup of the organizational structure, and configuration activities. These key features guide users through all the necessary steps to manage their projects, decide which business processes should be in scope, set up the organizational structure of their company, or configure their business processes.
