Understanding the business processes of SAP S/4HANA is vital for a successful implementation.
Business process integration requires a good understanding of master and organizational data management, documentation and monitoring of business process tasks, and collaborative modeling. This holistic approach enables the calibration of all system components for the sole purpose of creating maximum efficiency of the enterprise and its operational systems.
The updated SAP S/4HANA Business Process Integration certification exam (C_TS410) is recommended as an entry-level qualification to allow consultants and application users to become familiarized with SAP S/4HANA’s end-to-end business process fundamentals.
This exam necessitates systematic preparation, and it’s recommended to begin preparing and studying at least three months before the exam if you don’t have any previous software and enterprise management experience. Most questions are related to business processes and their integrations in the software, designed to ensure CEO-level awareness about the connections between all individual business processes, including:
- Core finance: management accounting (CO)
- Design-to-operate processing
- Project System
- Enterprise asset management (EAM)
- Lead-to-cash processing
- Source-to-pay processing
- Core finance: financial accounting (FI)
- Warehouse and inventory management
- Hire-to-retire processing
A Few Ways to Prepare
Here are different learning avenues to prepare for the exam:
In-class training is one of the most effective ways to prepare for the certification exam. This type of training is usually offered either in a physical location or a virtual classroom, requiring the trainee’s active participation in live lectures.
Face-to-face training is offered as an intensive 10-day course run by an SAP-certified instructor. The certification exam is usually taken on the last day of the training. Official training materials and live software access are provided to students by SAP Training and Adoption. This training avenue is recommended for candidates with recent experience in SAP S/4HANA software. Basic knowledge of business processes in enterprise planning and management can significantly expedite your exam preparation process. You can visit the SAP Training website at https://training.sap.com/certification/ and search the keyword “TS410” to find current virtual or onsite training courses in your country and area.
Online training is usually offered as a self-paced learning experience through SAP Learning Hub. This type of training is more flexible than in-class training in terms of time. This approach can be convenient for students who prefer using self-study materials, such as presentations, e-books, and videos; these are organized into SAP Learning Hub learning journeys.
SAP University Alliances is a network of educational institutions offering courses and programs with SAP components. The courses and training resources offered in these institutions are supported by an SAP-owned initiative called SAP Next-Gen. SAP University Alliances institutions offer enterprise resource planning (ERP) courses or certification programs using SAP S/4HANA as the ERP software, with hands-on practice and/or case studies designed by SAP. These programs are convenient for students who have no experience with ERP systems or business processes in SAP S/4HANA.
