What is System Landscape Transformation (SLT)?

With the growing relevance of SAP S/4HANA and increased complexities of today’s ERP systems, data-driven migrations are in high demand. We help customers thread the needle between costly New Implementations and inflexible System Conversions. With Selective Data Transition on the rise, there are more projects than the current SAP consulting world can handle, this is why we are expanding our SLT team!

As an SAP SLT consultant you’ll be learning SAP at the database level. This means understanding things such as:

  • How is data stored within an SAP system?
  • What are differences in table structures between SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA?
  • How do you split an up-and-running SAP system during a divestiture or other M&A scenario?

Of course, it’s not just data structures and tables, business process and functional knowledge is still critical in SLT. Understanding how data is processed and stored, combined with functional business process knowledge in your module will give you a deeper understanding of how SAP works. This is why cbs will continually invest in your education with fully covered SAP certifications.

FAQs

We are looking for individuals with 2-3 years of hands–on experience with SAP. This can be someone in a Business Analyst role, or more technical ABAP development skills. All you need is basic SAP knowledge, passion for technical details, and interest in SAP Migrations.

The YPA is an accelerated 7-week program geared toward individuals with a passion for SAP and a desire to help global organizations solve real world problems. Through hands-on case studies, bootcamps and recent project experiencewe’ll provide you with the tools and knowledge to start your career in SAP consulting. It is an academy, so you won’t be going at it alone. We typically target anywhere from 3 to 8 individuals to start and complete the program together in our Headquarter in DevonAt the end of the 7 weeks, you’ll earn an official SAP certificationcovered 100% by cbs. 

Yes! SAP Consultants typically fall under two categories, Technical Consultants and Functional Consultants. This YPA is focused on Technical Consultants. As a technical consultant you will interact with data at table and database level and perform updates to it as per customer requests (carveouts, deletions, merges, etc). If you have just two years of experience in a Business Analyst role (i.e., using SAP in any of its Modules as a tool for performing daily activities in your current job) with an understanding of business processes across different business functions, you are exactly who we are looking for. It doesn’t matter if this is Finance, Manufacturing, or in Supply Chain and Logistics. Additionally, you should have an interest to dive deeper into the behind the scenes of the SAP data world. At cbs you will have the opportunity to be manipulating data with cutting edge tools.

After a very successful first YPA program last summer, we have decided to do it again on April 4th, 2022! With the high involvement of our Leadership Team, Project Managers and SAP Consultants, we developed a training Academy to help support the development of future migration consultants. 

The position requires relocation to one of our three US office locations: Devon, PA – Denver, CO – Detroit, MI. However, the YPA 7-week program will require all individuals be on-site at our US Headquarter in Devon, PA (Philadelphia). If you decide to move to our Pennsylvania location, relocation expenses will be covered up-front prior to the YPA. If you decide on one of our other office locations, we can help you find temporary housing (hotel, or similar accommodation) for the duration of the program. After the conclusion of the YPA, relocation expenses will be covered to either Denver, CO or Detroit, MI based on your choice of location.
