SAP technology changes rapidly, and often it’s had to keep up with what company they have acquired, what the new acronym is and what changes they’re making to existing functionality and tools.
So why not use this self-isolation time to get yourself up to speed with what’s new in SAP, here are few things to kick start you.
What is it you ask?
In an SAP press release it was said;
“Qualtrics is the global pioneer of the experience management (XM) software category that enables organizations to thrive in today’s experience economy. The combination accelerates the new XM category by combining Qualtrics’ experience data with operational data from SAP software to power the economy. SAP and Qualtrics will offer businesses the means to deliver exceptional customer, employee, product and brand experiences.”
In 2019 SAP acquired Quadralics for a whopping $8 billion. We haven’t yet heard too much about Quadralics in the Australian market as yet, but you can read their full press release here.
A lot has been spoken about SAP S/4HANA, but in reality the uptake of companies migrating to SAP S/4HANA in Australia has been very minimal. In early 2019 Speller International hosted a networking and information session about the consultants journey to SAP S/4HANA and there was a lot of key takeaways from those consultants who has successfully transitioned from the ECC environment to SAP S/HANA.
One of the keys messages was to do your research on the fundamental changes. In an article we released after the event we listed a number of the key takeaways and suggestions of where to go to look for relevant information.
