SAP For MIT
SAP stands for System Applications and Products. It is the name of both the online financial and administrative software and the company that developed it. SAP is made up of individual modules that perform various organizational system tasks. MIT has customized and implemented the SAP modules that best suit its organizational needs.
This self-study is designed for MIT employees new to SAP, and it is a prerequisite for all other SAP training.
Before you begin this self-study, you must have the following:
- Kerberos user ID. A Kerberos user ID identifies you to the MIT electronic security system. You will use your Kerberos user ID and password for multiple purposes, besides SAP.
- SAP user profile. An SAP user profile is established to identify the authenticity of the individual logging on to SAP and to specify the functions that the user is allowed to perform.
- Access to both the sap-edu “practice” environment and the SAP Production “live” environment. (The practice environment has the same functions and transactions as the Production environment but has specific data for practice exercises).
