In this podcast, moderated by SearchSAP careers expert Jon Reed, we ask SAP expert Robert Max for his thoughts on Run SAP. For end users, Run SAP is a post-implementation methodology that could lower your total cost of SAP ownership, reduce the incidence of technical problems, and allow you to better understand and manage your business processes.
For consultants, Run SAP is a skill you need to master in order to present a complete value proposition to your client. Listen to this podcast with Robert Max to better understand Run SAP and its closely related technical component, Solution Manager. SAP users may discover how to make their newly increased license fees pay off, and consultants will learn about the next big SAP skill.
