Challenges of Trade Management Implementations
SAP Trade Management Implementations often turn out to be complex, take more time than expected, and incur high costs. The key drivers for these challenges are:
Complexity of business processes with many exceptions to standard processes on different levels.
Trying to achieve too much in too short a time.
Timing of the implementation relative to planning cycles of the business.
Low data quality, specifically with core master data like customer or product master data and hierarchies.
A lack of cross-skilled resources across platforms such as ECC and S/4 (SD/FI/CO), SAP CRM, and SAP BW.
