Upgrades & Enhancements:
SAP introduced its enhancement package strategy as a means to simplify the way customers manage and deploy new software functionality. Customers can electively implement new functionality from SAP and activate it upon business demand. Consequently, software updates have come easier and faster due to shortened testing cycles. Smartsoft can help to keep your Enhancement packs up to date taking advantage of the new tools from SAP. The project time lines are shorter resulting in lower costs to maintain the application.
Customers still on ECC 5.0 or earlier versions (lower than 7.0 for other solutions) have to upgrade using the traditional methodologies. Smartsoft developed and used in numerous engagements a state of the tool set called SmartCheckto identify technical objects impacted in a version upgrade to determine the remediation effort, before the start of the project.
Smartsoft uses SAP Solution Manager to create the Project Roadmap and documentation. The version upgrade process broadly comprises:
- Comprehensive upgrade assessment
- Identification of testing needs
- Sizing of infrastructure
- Project Roadmap & execution
- Systems migration for temporary production support
- Unicode conversion
