3. SNP BLT - Frequently asked questions:

How does SNP save cost and time?

  • The experience of over a thousand projects was accumulated in an automated software tool, SNP Transformation Backbone, which handles the complete process of all possible transformation scenarios.
  • Automation = Efficiency. By automating the standard procedures, a large portion of the costly consulting and programming involved in a project is reduced.

- Intelligent tools for automated conflict analysis and resolution

- Predefined technical rules for SAP Standard

- Integrated business rules

- Proper cost analysis and testing before the migration goes live

- Analysis generates proposals for project priorities

- Target testing szenarios, based on real and not synthetic data with anonymisation option, if relevant

  • Licencing and transformation memory: Your company can use the software in future projects and have staff trained to handle transformations in-house
  • Very short execution of actual migration, over week-end, with near- zero downtime (for upgrades)

How does BLT help IT to follow the exact business needs of a company?

  • Because T-Bone enables the complex SAP infrastructure to better respond to changes to business. IT can implement transformations faster and easier with automated standard software and the use of the transformation memory.
  • One platform End2End transformation processing
  • All relevant business requirements, open data and data histories are integrated into the task formulation ( *how many companies company codes, how many clients, which of the historical data?)
  • All relevant data from non-SAP systems are included (identified and accessed by customized interfaces).
  • Compliance: Exact and comprehensive documentation of the entire transformation process makes our transformations audit-proof and scalable.

BLT is certified by Ernest and Young

  • Dynamic target testing szenarios, based on real and not synthetic data with anonymisation option, if relevant.

How do we guarantee maximum transparency , safety and quality?

  • 100% compliance:
  • Full accountability by documenting all transactions in the transformation process. reporting and documentation accompanies the entire project in all stages -> uninterrupted account of all project activities for transparency and compliance for your auditing
  • Software tools combine know-how of over 1000 successful projects
  • Refined test and planning tools for precise planning eliminate errors and redundancies.

- Proper cost analysis and testing before the migration goes live

- Automated Conflict analysis and - management avoids errors.

- Analysis generates proposals for project priorities

- Target testing szenarios, based on real and not synthetic data with anonymisation option, if relevant

How do we deliver uninterrupted business processes?

  • go-live over weekend, any time of the year, near- zero down time
  • entire data history migrates (traditionally, a new system is built only open data is migrated. The old data remains behind on a separate system)
  • no change for the users on the productive system
  • Target Transformation approach: Analysis tools help to identify priority projects. We are able to prioritize Transformation scenarios

BLT – how does it work? Step by step

Maximum preparation of the project ensures minimal duration of execution.

  1. Project planning and preparation
    • T-Bone system scan:
    • T Bone Wizard:
    • T-Bone Analysis: In depth analysis of data identifies conflicts and risks
    • T-Bone Cockpit:
  2. - Analysis of existing SAP system as a basis for project definition

    - Important data is assembled: (running SAP modules, Business Objects, system and repository information, size of databases and tables)

    - Assisted by an electronic questionnaire

    - Migration strategy is defined, all specific requirements identified Cost projection for the project

    - Basic technical planning of the transformation

    o Repository analysis

    o Customizing Analysis

    o Master data analysis

    o Number range analysis

    - Analysis generates further information for exact project task formulation,

    - Exact costing

    - Conflicts and risks analyzed

    - Work lists and transformation rules are generated automatically

    - Intensive testing and corrections before execution for maximum safety and quality
