The onboarding resource center is designed to lead you to a successful implementation. These technical and business resources will guide you at every stage of your implementation project from project kick-off to go-live. You will have access to knowledge base articles, best practices, service offerings and on-demand training videos.

Welcome and Introduction

SAP-User (S-User) Authorization

Get your initial credentials and S-user authorization. Log into the systems which have been provisioned for you at contract start date in order to ensure a frictionless project start.

Many of the resources you need can only be accessed with your S-user ID. For new customers, SAP will create S-user IDs for the SAP software recipients. Your company's user administrators can then request additional S-user IDs and assign the required authorizations.

SAP Universal ID

SAP Universal ID provides easier access to SAP sites. With SAP Universal ID, you have one single SAP account for life. It gives you the ability to log in once and to choose your S- and P-user IDs, enabling you to switch between users and to manage your account profile.

Go-Live Preparation

As part of SAP Enterprise Support, you may request continuous quality checks (CQC) and improvement services. We suggest adding this activity to your project. These services connect you with an SAP expert to analyze your system and situation based on real-life data from your systems. Depending on the topic, you'll be given the chance to provide more information that will be part of the analysis. After each service, you receive a service report with an executive summary, findings, and a detailed action plan to mitigate risks or improve your situation.

This is designed to monitor the performance of your SAP system during the go live. Within this service, the system is monitored for performance issues or potential risks and recommendations are given to resolve critical situations encountered.

This service provides a review of your instance setting before go-live. Your SAP solution is reviewed for potential risks and recommendations are given in alignment with SAP best practices.

How do I request a CQC service?
