Imagine you are an SAP Functional Consultant and your project's realization phase is done. Now you need to migrate 100,000 Customer records from your legacy system ( say Salesforce ) to SAP. How would you do it ? LSMW is the gold standard tool used by SAP functional consultants to migrate mass amounts of data into SAP. LSMW stands for Legacy System Migration Workbench . The name definitely sounds complicated, but believe me - I am going to make it look so simple that you will have fun doing it !! Ciao in the course..
In this lecture, I will explain a business scenario ( a simpler version of Customer Master Migration ) and relate it to the steps i have explained in the previous lecture
This is where the rubber meets the road - We will start doing the actual steps in LSMW to implement the business scenario ( Customer Master Data Migration using LSMW ) . I will talk about the import methods , recording, source structures, why we create them, source fields and their significance.
I am an SAP SD/MM functional consultant with roughly 12 years of experience in SAP. Teaching has been my passion since a long time and I have been teaching SAP since 2009. I have worked on countless projects in SAP in the US and the rest of the world. I have worked with major companies in the US like Apple, Wal-mart, Adidas, Adobe, Johnson & Johnson etc.
All along, I have worked with numerous SAP consultants with skills that range from absolute rookie to SAP platinum consultants. And the one thing that I found lacking in many beginner level consultants is a lack of proper training. They were just 1 step away from being a good quality SAP consultant. This gap can be easily be filled with high quality training.
SAP, just like any other packaged software can best be learned by example. This has been the focus of all my trainings - Examples and correlating them to real-time scenarios. Once you learn how to co-relate a particular piece of configuration with a real time example, you can become as good as an experienced consultant.
