Decoding S/4HANA Conversion

To start with there is always a lot of confusion on S/4HANA Conversion projects.

Too many tasks, too many teams, and too many responsibilities. Also moving away from our beloved Business Suite sparks fear in us.

Lets explain why we should move away from ECC 6.0 :

SAP Maintenance Strategy:

SAP provides mainstream maintenance for core applications of SAP Business Suite 7 software (including SAP ERP 6.0, SAP Customer Relationship Management 7.0, SAP Supply Chain Management 7.0, and SAP Supplier Relationship Management 7.0 applications and SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA®) on the respective latest three Enhancement Packages (EhPs) until December 31, 2027.

SAP Data Warehouse Cloud bulk provisioning

As our customers adopt SAP Data Warehouse Cloud, we often need to help them set up new users for both training and productive use.  This can be a significant administrative task when there are many users, spaces, connections, and shares needed for each user.  NOTE: SAP provides the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud command line interface (CLI) for automating some provisioning tasks.

For a specific customer, we needed to create 30 training users, along with a Space per user, multiple Connections per user, and numerous shares from a common space.  This could all have been accomplished using the SAP Data Warehouse Cloud user interface but we wanted to go faster, and more importantly make it repeatable.

Difference between Role, Authorization Object/s, and Profile

As a Functional Consultant, one may wonder what a Role is and how different it is from the Authorization Object and Profile. While it is mostly the job of the Security team to assign the required Role for a user, it is also the Functional Consultant’s responsibility to provide inputs about the required Transactions, restrictions within a Transaction, and how these restrictions should vary depending on the user.

Let’s begin this blog by defining what a user is. In simple terms, if a system has our users already created in it, only then we will be able to log in using a username and password. In SAP, Transaction code SU01 is used to create a user. Using this Tr. Code, users can be created, modified, deleted, locked, unlocked, and copied to create a new one. Typically, in a project user creation has certain prerequisites. Initially, the user or the concerned manager requests the user creation by filling in the access form and providing all the required details. This is followed by one or two stages of approval and finally the creation of the user by the Security team.

Pass Input Parameters to CV from Parameters derived from Procedure/Scalar Function

I am writing this blog post on SAP HANA Input Parameters. There are few blogs on HANA IPs but they are not giving clear understanding. Here I am giving a basic example which will make the understanding easy for HANA developers.

Those who are working on HANA for quite sometime and developed SAP HANA CVs they must have worked on Input Parameters and Variables.

A Variable:

Variables are bound to columns and are used for filtering using WHERE clauses. As such, they can only contain the values available in the Columns they relate to.
