Course information

Course Summary

The focus of innovation in SAP S/4HANA has evolved over time, moving from the creation of a technical platform with solutions like Extended Warehouse Management, Transportation Management, and CRM, or a new analytics platform, to enhancing existing functionalities and adding new ones. In this course, we will provide you with insights into new features and functions in the logistics area in SAP S/4HANA that will help you to improve your business processes. The course is aimed at functional experts with a background in the logistics area of SAP, and the topics covered will be relevant for project team members in both greenfield and brownfield SAP S/4HANA projects.

The course begins with a focus on innovations in the sales area of SAP S/4HANA. We will then move on to look at new functionality in the procurement space with central procurement. This will be of interest to customers who still use SAP SRM (Supplier Relationship Management) or have multiple systems, including solutions from different software providers. Supply chain is a major focus area in this course too. Everyone will be familiar with the challenges presented to supply chains by the outbreak of COVID-19, as demands changed and markets closed. The remaining units will focus on supply chain, showing innovations in material requirements planning (MRP), capacity planning, and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), before looking into the area of Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) and integrated solutions.
