If you are planning to convert your SAP ECC system to SAP S/4HANA, one of the first critical activities is to convert your sandbox system. Very often, the workload for the first sandbox conversion is underestimated, which can lead to overruns in time and budget.

The live must-know interactive training for SAP S/4HANA Sandbox Conversion will assist you in this critical activity and highlight the must-know facts to get you started and well on your way for your first sandbox conversion.

This 105-minute interactive training complements our 3-part curriculum of recorded meet-the-expert webcasts (see links below) which takes a much deeper look at the topics but requires a considerably greater time investment, hence, the choice of Live Must-Know webcast or MTE is dependent on time and detail required. This interactive session is available monthly in English German and Chinese.
Before you can access the links below, a one-time registration in SAP Learning Hub, edition for SAP Enterprise Support, is required. A detailed step-by step guide to registration can be found here.
