As-Is study means studying the business process of the
client.The SAP consultant goes to the client's place and
gets this document.Once the As is document is ready the
consultant based on the client's requirement prepares the
To-Be document which means how the business of the client
must be. This whole process takes place in the Second phase
of ASAP which is the Blueprint Phase.
AS IS study is the one of the most Important & begins of
the SAP Implementation project.
The Consultant has to go to the client place and has to
gather all the details provided by the client.
There after only consultant can prepare Business Blue Print
which will come under second head of the ASAP ie To BE
AS IS study help the project in such a way that ex - how
many modules that are used from SAP,how many teams required
for project, schedule date for go live & project etc.
so its atmost important
In simple words, AS-IS study is the study of existing
business processes of the client. SAP consultant is suppose
to go to client place, study thoroughly their way of working
and is needed to prepare a document of their existing
business processes in detail.
Once this is done, the consultant has to provide the client
with the solution to improve their way of working by
inducing the new process/functionality or by improving the
existing processes which will help them to reduce their cost
of operations in future and will help them to improve their
services/operations. This all is covered in TO-BE process
and takes care the client's future business requirement as
well. This step is part of blueprint phase in ASAP methodology.
this is very very imp foundation stage
the consultant is mapping the following thease things
u whave to ask the following questions to client
what,how,when,where the process is going to happens
-special Business process planning(eg-rewark,salveging etc)
all as above
AS IS STUDY: We need to understand the complete business
process from the existing business(client business) and we
can prepare AS IS documents.
TO BE PROCESS:Based upen the AS IS documents we map to sap
this is called TO BE PROCESS.
While doing biz blue printing, SAP Consultant goes to the
client and understands their business model, how are they
working and what they have been doing, how are they
working, is called AS - IS.There is one to one matching between AS-IS and TO-BE, if any gap is found try to be minimized.
