Our Consultants have extensive experience of defining, developing and implementing Customisations/RICEF’s (Reports, Interfaces, Conversions, Enhancements and Forms) in SAP. We understand the long term overheads and cost implications of Custom Enhancements and before embarking on the obvious Development approach we will always seek to explore the full range of possible options – incorporating a Proof Of Concept based approach where appropriate to determine feasibility whilst minimising risks during the early stages of a project.

Sometimes SAP Development is unavoidable but with the advances in complimentary toolsets many Business Requirements can fulfilled using innovative methods – for example by employing refinements to Business Processes and/or the use of 3rd Party Tools such as Winshuttle, Macro’s, etc.

SAP Data Migration

One of the critical factors in determining the real success of each SAP Implementation is the quality of data which is loaded in SAP. The challenges of achieving a quality result during Data Conversion should not be underestimated, and neither should the reduced benefits and potentially long term challenge in cleansing data retrospectively in SAP.

During Data Conversion from disparate source systems (e.g. Finance, Supply Chain and Maintenance) the emphasis can often be narrowly focussed on replicating the data in the source systems rather than focussing on the real business data needs. This can often result in silo’ed data in a common system rather than truly integrated data and a shortfall in the promised benefits of investing in SAP.

Data Migration can be highly complex and challenging (both from a technical conversion perspective and from a Data Gathering and cleansing perspective). Being a major contributor in terms of time and resource consumption for any SAP project completion, it becomes imperative to guide the client in data conversion process. We at AG Consultancy are Specialist in Data migration and Cutover Management. We help clients define data migration strategy, create migration tools, co-ordinate data collection and data validation, define data governance process and manage cut-over activities.

We excel in implementing Winshuttle products for data migration during the project phase, which can be further utilized in BAU environment. We also create user friendly excel form that can be auto mapped with data migration template.

SAP Testing

Robust testing of SAP solutions is critical to ensure that SAP functionalities deliver the anticipated benefits.

In keeping with ‘Best Practice’ Project Management methodologies we seek to fully define the Testing scope, ownership and quality standards in advance. By ensuring testing acceptance criteria are defined and agreed in advance then sufficient focus, time and resources can be made available to ensure the overall solution is fit for purpose, robust and completed on time.

We can support the client by preparing the test scripts and carry-out the testing for the following testing stages:

* Unit/Product Testing
* System Integration Testing
* User Acceptance Testing
* Authorisations/Role based Testing Interface Testing
