For over 15 years, I worked on the topic of SAP change and configuration management. Time and again I encounter SAP consolidation projects from SAP R/3 to SAP R/3. The motivation for such projects is familiar to everyone – reduce costs for SAP operations. Unfortunately, we have seen that SAP has scarcely learned from experience. Already after going live with the first corporate subsidiary, the company is facing a dilemma of whether to go live with additional corporate subsidiaries and operate the first live launch as a competitor.
