    Hi Ramesh

    From a practicality point of view is there any opportunity with your current employer to move into a Support role for MM? In doing this, you would extend your end user skills as a super user or a support consultant to troubleshoot. It get you more exposure to reviewing configuration and going beyond end user procedures.

    As a natural progression, you might then have an opportunity to join a project or upgrade or even perform some testing. Over time, you could progress into configuration and design work.

    Good luck with it and don't underestimate the skills you have obtained in conjunction with your training.

    Regards

    Colleen

    • Hi Richard

      1. You are on "loan" - sounds like you are in at the right time and bringing your business knowledge in. Try to remain on loan as much as possible so that you are part of design workshops, see the system demonstration and try to get access to a Sandpit/Playpen system. This way you will get the chance to learn from the consultants. By the time you get to CoE you will be a go to person and know the solution inside out. If it is a large project (when you say a few years - it may mean the work is delivered in releases. This mean you might have production with a support environment up within the first few months to a year so it could be sooner than you realise).
      2. For books, you can also look at the SAP Press Site to see official published content from SAP - you can purchase in hard or soft copy. The books you  have,however will give you basic overview of the ERP. For SAP Learning Hub - go to training.sap.com for your country and look for HUB* course codes. You will see a Customer Edition Version. This is 12 month subscription to all of SAP course material. Again, recommend you look at Discovery first to see if you like the style before you invest 😊. If you go to SCN training space you will see quite a few articles discussing it.
      3. (Your 4) Yes you are correct - GRC is about managing risk. Like security, if you do it at the end of defining your business processes then you are generally stuck doing administration patching. It's always better to design the business process to remove segregation of duties risk, etc. For example, you don't want someone having the ability to create a vendor and raise a purchase order (they could update vendor details and change the bank account to theirs and then buy a fictitious service)
      4. (Your 4 part 2) Process Controls is around automated monitoring of a process to see if there are compliance issues. A lot of companies might focus on fraud and segregation of duties but an inefficient process can actually be more costly. If you google or go to GRC space, you will find some overview information of what Process Controls is. The other module that is part of the GRC component is Risk Management. Within the GRC portfolio there are some other solutions like Fraud Management (powered by HANA)
      5. Playpen - you might get this on your project. The alternatives is to purchase SAP Live Access (extension of learning Hub) or search google for SAP IDES to see if you can obtain a trial copy and install it yourself (this last option would be for ERP MM and not GRC). I recommend you find out what your company is doing in the preparation phase of the project as installing and setting up a SAP system at home is quite tedious (must admit, I outsource such a thing to my partner and make him do it)
