Dave Green from SAP will present to the group The value of upgrading to ERP 6.0 for Project Systems. With ERP 6.0 (previously known as ECC6) a wealth of new functionality is available for Project Systems users. This functionality has been furthered with "Enhancement Pack 3" now on general release and the forthcoming "Enhancement Pack 4" will add even more functionality - much of this is coming directly for the requirements of existing Project Systems users. The session will focus on what is now available and the roadmap for future ERP 6.0 enhancement packs. New functionality includes:

  • Progress Analysis Workbench for Earned Value
  • Forecast Workbench
  • Intermediate saving of projects
  • New options for handling project materials
  • Service Enablement (SOA) of Project Systems

You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss ERP 6.0 at our Q&A Session.
