IT Partners, Inc. Experience Matters…. SAP consultants come in all shapes and sizes from the extreme techie guys that can only communicate in binary code, to those smooth talking ‘gift of the gab’ salesman like functional consultants who run in fear at the thought of discussing anything technical. When a project gets on the way, somehow the two must meet and work together. Being a “Techie” - I want to help bridge this chasm and help functional consultants “Crack the Code” and gain some footing with this presentation. “Cracking the Code”
IT Partners, Inc. Experience Matters…. A functional consultant evaluates the demands in talking with the customer's representatives, transforms the essence into an abstract and algorithmic business model. Hence, he/she identifies the use cases and transforms them into logical views. Then the main task starts: customizing the respective business area and making sure the system reacts in the manner according to the constraints of the requested use case. Along with this an SAP functional consultant needs to develop functional specifications. Functional Consultant ROLES
IT Partners, Inc. Experience Matters…. Technical consultants plan the technical requirements for an object with the Functional Consultant and the manager of the technical team and then carry out the required technical tasks in the system.

Along with this an SAP Technical consultant needs to develop Technical specifications. Technical Consultant ROLES
IT Partners, Inc. Experience Matters…. While the Functional Consultant defines and isolates the GAP in the Use Case, the Technical Consultant decides the best Technical Realization in achieving the “Goal” or end state desired. My assertion is, the quality, stability, and overall integrity of the process is increased (x) fold by collaboration from start to finish.
