Course Description

With more than 400,000 customers worldwide, SAP has established itself as a reference in terms of ERP over the years.

Rare are the software so powerful, and allowing to adapt to all types of business.

It allows a notable improvement of the processes, increases the performance of the companies and especially increases the communication and the exchange of information between service with its unique database.

Training today on SAP is clearly an excellent choice for the future. The fields of application are constantly expanding and the need to improve productivity and quality is growing.

However, it must be recognized that it is as powerful as it is complex, which may seem disconcerting at first.

This training is focused on data recovery: the four main tools offered by SAP (IBIP, LSMW, SHDB, MASS) are detailed.

Who is this training for?

The topics covered are not only of interest to those who work on one or more SAP modules in particular. Indeed, it will be of interest to any SAP consultant, whether functional and/or technical. Moreover, the data recovery tools, in particular LSMW and SHDB, allow you to work on any SAP module. Others, more specialized, such as IBIP and MASS, target their functionalities on a particular module or a group of modules.

But not only!

It should also be of interest to project managers, IT specialists responsible for IT data management, but also to all other people who have to work proactively with SAP, such as Key Users or Business Owners. People who would like to understand in depth the functionalities that are already implemented in their company, or the functionalities that they should consider for the future, as the software offers so many possibilities, will find their account here.

Since this course covers the necessary basics of data recovery but also of computer science to understand the entirety of the tools presented, people wishing to change careers in computer science and more particularly in SAP are welcome.

However, I advise you to have a taste for this field and to have a minimal knowledge of SAP. If this is not the case, I refer you to my training "Initiation SAP Beginner - The Basics" before venturing into this one.

What will I learn?

This course is designed to be comprehensive and is optimally broken down so that you can follow along at your own pace and easily access each short chapter.

We will cover the following topics:

  1. Batch Inputs

  2. The LSMW tool - Legacy System Migration Workbench

  3. The SHDB Tool - Transaction Recorder

  4. The MASS Tool - Mass Maintenance

  5. Fiori App: Migrate Your Data

  6. Two exercises to practice the LSMW and MASS features

  7. A complete quiz

How will I learn?

The videos, articles and downloadable documents have been created to make learning a pleasure.

No reading of Powerpoint or other similar documents.

We wanted to make it more modern, more polished.

Moreover, each concept will be clearly explained before moving on to the "Software" part with the help of these explanation videos.

You don't need to have SAP installed on your PC. Everything will be shown to you directly in a real environment.

For those who would like to go further and practice directly in the software, I can advise you the Michael Management website, to get a "Live Access" pass in the SAP environment. You will find the link in the last section of the course.

This is the solution we used to create this course.

A little additional information: the connection language will be in English. Learning the English terms will be very useful because they are the terms used in most industries, training, forums, ...

Don't worry, we will explain each of them in French, whether you speak English or not. This will not be a hindrance.

What happens next?

At the end of this training, you will have learned a lot, not only about the notion of Batch Input, but also about the standard tools LSMW, SHDB or MASS.

You will have all the cards in hand to become a "complete" consultant.

But as we know that it is sometimes difficult to go beyond the teaching and that, in concrete cases, one can easily get lost, we continue to bring you our help and support:

  • By updating our training courses on a regular basis according to your feedback

  • By an exchange system, notably the Q&A but also by message

  • By an email address, for more complex cases where it would be necessary to send us files

  • It is also possible to provide you with a personalized coaching system, according to your personal goals

We want to be close to our community, and above all, to accompany you in your success.

"What you are tomorrow depends on what you do today.

So take the plunge. Do not hesitate. The best investment you can make is to invest in yourself!
