modification of SAP programs

Hi Experts,

While going through various threads in this forum, I notice experts recommending modifications in SAP programs.

Should a SAP consultant provide any advise to a client before recommending modifications in programme OR should consultant implement modification because of client requirements?

I wanted to ascertain how it works in actual business environment.

Thank you

    As an SAP consultant, you have to inform to client that the current business process is not accomplised by the stadard SAP....

    See it depends on your client requirement, if the client isasking for very peculiar case then we have to go with enhancements... if not you can advise something from standard SAP which can satisfy the client by50% to 75%... Cause the enhancements are more of an additional costs to the client....

    Modifications are generally developed for special customer situations.

    These modification are not covered by SAP Standard Support.

    Therefore, before importing an SAP Support Package or upgrading to a higher release, client should first check whether this modification is also valid at the new release level.

      Hi Tarun,

      That depends on importance of requirement and impact analysis that is necessary for the programme change.

      First you need to verify userexits can solve your problem or not. If userexits does not resolve your problem then you can go ahead with programme changes.

      Thank you
