As a learning exercise I am trying to understand how I am going to implement SAP for let’s say an enterprise (multiple companies)
I am aware that SAP offers:
1. Core ERP
2. Best Practices - Baseline Package
3. Best Practices - Industry Specific (e.g. EC&O)
4. Best Practices - Cross Industry (e.g. HCM)
5. Country based Localization (that sits on top of ERP EHP)
In what sequence do I apply/activate the Best Practices? Do I need to activate the Baseline first before moving towards Industry/Cross Industry Best Practices?
What if the scenario exists in both Baseline and Industry Specific. e.g. Accounts Receivable scenario is present in Baseline and is also available in EC&O.
Is the scenario configuration in Baseline, a prerequisite to scenario configuration in Industry/Cross-Industry?
There are certain scenarios that are not part of the SAP Best Practice packages. Does that mean that I have to go to ERP and manually configure those scenario?
I am also interesting in Summary of steps that explains high level how the Solution Builder fits into the picture and what role does the Solution Manager play in regards to Implementing Best Practices?
Please refer me to any good source of information that is out there. I already referred to Guides, Notes, Documentation and that didn’t quite provide me with the kind of information I are looking for.
Would really appreciate any feedback.
