SAP (System, Applications and Products) is a business management solution which enables the effective accounting, planning, analysis and optimisation of companies’ and organisations‘ economic activity.
As well as ensuring the core business processes necessary for companies to function – financial, materials and personnel management – SAP also provides management of sector-specific processes. The specific requirements of trading, metallurgical, logistics, vehicle manufacturing, transport, energy, oil and gas companies have been implemented in the system, and banking and public sector solutions have been developed which differentiate this system from other enterprise management solutions. A special solution has been developed for each sector to fully support and cover its enterprise management processes.

Lattelecom Technology implements SAP solution in compliance with the implementation methodology developed by SAP, which is divided into five project stages.
1. Project preparation
During this stage, project planning is undertaken and strategic decisions are made:
1) defining of project objectives and tasks
2) setting of limits to project scale
3) defining of project schedule, budget and order of implementation
4) setting up of project organisation and allocation of required resources
2. Organisational process handbook
During this stage, a description of how the company’s business processes and organisational structure will be reflected in the SAP system is drawn up.
During this stage, the SAP system is configured and supplemented in accordance with the requirements described in the organisational process handbook. User documentation is written and certain system modules undergo testing.
4. Final preparation
During this stage, system integrity testing and user training is undertaken. Preparation is undertaken for system implementation: responsibility for SAP system maintenance is defined, system change planning and planning for the shutting down of the previous system are undertaken.
5. System implementation and maintenance
During this stage, the transfer from the testing environment to the productive environment is carried out. System monitoring and optimisation are executed.
