Upgrade Strategy
Before doing SAP version upgrade, we advise our clients to leverage their technology infrastructure and in-house SAP skills. In the SAP optimization phase, apart from implementing the usual version upgrade, we also implement the additional functionality, such asHR/ESS, Portals and BI (on client’s request).

Value Proposition – Our Upgrade Assessment
Within a version upgrade project the most complex and decisive phase is analyzing the impact of the upgrade on custom development within a SAP system. For this, we propose our client a technical assessment including upgrade impact analysis of custom code, while identifying obsolete objects with suggested replacements.

Technical assessment helps you in many ways:

  • Provides an inventory of all z/y objects (custom programs)
  • Compares the object integrity across the landscape
  • Helps in recommending replacing ABAP objects like (BDCs with BAPIs)where required
  • Active business modules and transaction in use with user list and Inventory of SAP modifications

Technical Upgrade
In technical upgrade, we review the hardware, software and interfacing applications. We also evaluate the custom modifications, interfaces, user exits, bolt-ons, reports etc. for migration and re-check the data conversion

Functionality Upgrade
After implementing technical upgrade, we conduct customization for the existing functionality. Besides, we also re-visit the business blueprint to check if the work-around adapted in SAP earlier version can be mapped in a more efficient manner. Functional upgrade is the choice of client whether they want to enhance the existing ones or implement the new updates.
