  • This course is a training of the functionality and techniques of the defense solution in SAP. It will not provide customer specific implementation know how. It will show some best practice approaches of SAP D&S within the used examples, while stressing the innovations in S/4HANA D&S solution in Defense Logistics.
  • The training IDS20 SAP S/4HANA Defense & Security - Organizational Flexibility is highly recommended to understand the content of this workshop.
  • This course is built on SAP S/4 HANA with D&S extension including native Fiori apps. It is optional to order also a DFPS in Compatibility scope system to practice the older DFPS solution, compatible with ECC 6.0 EHP 5-8 platforms with active Defense Solution.
  • The training content is subject of changes because the development is an ongoing process. In some parts of the training also customizing topics will be discussed.
  • This training does not require prior knowledge of the previous DFPS solution. For customers who have trained in the past on DFPS solution, particularly the DFPS67 training, you will find most of the concepts similar, but the usage of D&S apps is new. However, this is not a delta training DFPS->D&S as the concepts are shown anew.
