SAP upgrade scheduled for May; training plans TBA

In May, SAP will be upgraded to take advantage of future improvements and maintain SAP product support. The upgrade will primarily affect the look and feel of the screens in the shopping cart transaction but will not change functionality or impact business processes. Additionally, R/3 will be renamed to ECC, an acronym for ERP Central Component.

Users will experience downtime while the actual SAP upgrade is taking place, from the evening of Friday, May 14, through the morning of Wednesday, May 19. Plans for training and downtime are under way, and more details will be available in the spring. For up-to-date information on the SAP upgrade, go to www.SAPatHopkins.org.
