Background

SAP S/4HANA has been launched in 2015 as the new intelligent ERP system. The software is available as cloud edition and as on-prem edition. SAP S/4HANA is being called the biggest update to its ERP system in over two decades. Together with the move to in-memory database SAP HANA a new user interface (SAP Fiori) was introduced.

The mainstream maintenance for the predecessor products will end in 2025. Due to this time line a lot of SAP customers have already started the transformation journey to SAP S/4HANA or at minimum have initiated a pre-project.

How will all these technical and functional changes in the surrounding of SAP S/4HANA (user interface, in-memory database, different deployment types) impact the validation approach and the validation scope?

This ECA Live Online Training will provide comprehensive knowledge about how to validate SAP S/4HANA for new SAP customers as well as for installed base customers who are planning a system conversion.

Expect two days full of shared best practices for the validation of SAP S/4HANA considering recent regulatory requirements like EU GMP Guide Annex 11, GAMP 5 and 21 CFR Part 11.

Target Group

This Live Online Training is directed at experienced employees from
  • IT & IT Service Providers
