SAP Realize Phase| SAP Tools & Activities

The Realize phase in the S/4HANA ERP conversion consists of key processes such as SUM (Software Update Manager), Cross-Application Follow-On, and Application-Specific Follow-On Activities.

SAP ERP Cloud Application is where the software development process is completed, and the system is ready to be deployed.

During this phase, the system is tested and finalized. It involves debugging, ensuring the system meets all requirements and is secure and reliable. After this phase, the system is ready to be used in the production environment.

This blog will overview the three activities in the realization phase and provide an SAP Cloud Application list.

Notes to be used for the Application Specific Follow-On Activities with SAP Cloud:

  • Software Update Manager (SUM)
  • Cross-Application Follow-On Activities
  • List of Application-Specific Follow-On Activities

So, what is SAP cloud?

SAP Cloud Platform is a comprehensive cloud platform designed to help enterprises build, extend, and run applications across various use cases.

It is a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offering from SAP and part of the larger SAP Cloud portfolio. SAP Cloud Platform provides a range of services that enable enterprises to build their applications, extend their existing applications for the cloud, integrate their cloud-based and on-premise data, and leverage the power of analytics.

SAP Cloud Application also provides access to various cloud-native services, such as SAP HANA, SAP Cloud Identity and Access Management, SAP Analytics Cloud, and more.

The SAP S/4HANA implementation partner provides access to various development tools and frameworks, such as SAP Web IDE, SAP Fiori, and SAP Cloud SDK.

S/4HANA conversion makes it easier for developers to build, extend, and run applications on the platform. It also provides various managed services, such as database and messaging services.

Overall, the SAP Cloud Platform is a comprehensive platform for enterprises to build, extend, and run applications in the cloud. It provides access to various tools and services, making it easier for developers to build and extend applications and for enterprises to

Software Update Manager (SUM)

A software update manager is a software program that automates downloading and installing updates for software programs.

SAP S/4HANA implementation partner in the UK ensures that all the software programs on a computer are kept up to date with the latest versions, patches, and security fixes.

The manager can be configured to check for updates on a regular schedule or whenever the user requests and can also be set to install SAP S/4HANA implementation updates that are available automatically.

When the system is ready and adapted for custom code of S/4HANA, then the next step is to run the SUM tool. The key functionals of the SUN tool is to handle these processes:

  • Run the Database Migration
  • Run the actual Software Updation
  • Perform data conversion

Cross-Application Follow-On Activities with SAP Cloud

After the SUM updation, the cross-application follow-on activities must be performed. The cross-application activities are needed even to make the UI changes during the process with the SAP S/4 HANA System Implementation partner

The database remains unchanged if the conversion is from an SAP S/4 HANA System database to a S/4HANA system. Adding, removing, or moving fields and groups as part of the runtime adaptation for the smart forms or apps is part of the UI adaption. 

The cross-application activities are 

  • Adapting Database Extensions to SAP S/4HANA 
  • Output Management 
  • Follow-On Activities for the Conversion of Authorizations 
  • Follow-On Activities for SAP Fiori UX Enablement (incl. Authorizations) 
  • Adapting the User Interface 

List of Application-Specific Follow-On Activities with SAP Cloud 

In addition to the cross-application activities, application-specific activities must be performed to successfully check the simplification items relevant to the SAP S/4 HANA ERP Implementation system.
