S/4HANA Finance courses specifically designed for UAT users.
This modular course is aimed at users who will be involved in the UAT of their organisation’s new S/4HANA ERP solution. Typically, these users are selected from the business due to their knowledge of the existing/new processes to be implemented, however, they may not be familiar with S/4HANA. Without this familiarity, progress can be slow during UAT.
The course is designed to teach the user how to access and navigate S/4HANA, teach them how to carry out testing including how to navigate a test script, how to log results, and provide an overview of the testing process.
Each business area/module contains an introduction to the typical business processes along with typical apps, screens and document transactions generated. This includes demonstrations and walkthroughs during the session. This provides the audiences with the confidence to carry out testing in the different S/4HANA business areas.
To ensure the master data and document transactions will be meaningful to the audience, preparation time on the client’s S/4HANA build will be required by the Optimum consultant who will deliver the training. The preparation time is determined by the number of business areas (modules) to be included in the training.
Although there are no IT pre-requisites for the course, delegates should have a basic knowledge of Windows techniques. An understanding of the business area(s) they will be testing will be advantageous.
Following the completion of all modules you will be able to:
- Understand the UAT process and your role within it
