The SAP enterprise Architect has shared the snapshot for your reference. What is the pertinent SAP Solution in the market to Lead Business Process module of the Lead to cash E2E Process



Answer : D

SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement is a cloud-based solution that helps businesses to create, manage, and deliver personalized marketing campaigns across multiple channels. It includes features for lead management, marketing campaign management, and recommendation management.

The Lead Business Process Module of the Lead to Cash E2E Process is responsible for managing leads and converting them into customers. SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement can be used to automate the lead management process, track lead progress, and identify opportunities for cross selling and upselling.

The other three options, SAP Sales Cloud version 2, SAP Omnichannel Promotion Pricing, and SAP Customer Data Cloud, are not as well-suited for the Lead Business Process Module of the Lead to Cash E2E Process.

SAP Sales Cloud version 2is a cloud-based solution that helps businesses to manage sales opportunities and close deals. It does not have the same features for lead management and marketing campaign management as SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement.

SAP Omnichannel Promotion Pricingis a cloud-based solution that helps businesses to manage pricing and promotions across multiple channels. It does not have the same features for lead management and marketing campaign management as SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement.

SAP Customer Data Cloudis a cloud-based solution that helps businesses to collect, store, and analyze customer data. It does not have the same features for lead management and marketing campaign management as SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement.

Therefore, the best course of action is to use SAP Emarsys Customer Engagement to manage the Lead Business Process Module of the Lead to Cash E2E Process.

Question 3

Which of the following roles are missing from Wanderlust's current Enterprise Architecture practice structure? Note: There are 2 correct answers to this question.



Answer : C, D

From the current Enterprise Architecture practice structure presented for Wanderlust GmbH, it appears that there are dedicated roles for a Chief Enterprise Architect and a Technology Architect. However, the roles of Application Architect and Business Architect are not explicitly mentioned. An Application Architect is crucial for designing and maintaining the application landscape, ensuring that it aligns with business requirements, while a Business Architect is essential for aligning IT strategy with business strategy and understanding the impact of business changes on the architecture. Their absence indicates a gap in ensuring the alignment between business processes and IT systems, as well as in defining and maintaining the application strategy. Reference = The roles and responsibilities within an Enterprise Architecture framework typically include both Application and Business Architects to ensure a comprehensive approach to aligning IT and business strategies.


Question 4

You design a Solution Architecture, based on SAP S/4HANA, for an internationally active customer that has a national subsidiary in China and other countries that have special requirements for data storage. As the responsible Enterprise Architect, your task is to propose a solution that takes these special requirements into account. How do you proceed when your customer's Architecture Guideline calls for following a "cloud-first" approach?



Answer : C

The customer's architecture guideline calls for following a 'cloud-first' approach, but this does not mean that all solutions must be deployed in the cloud. In some cases, private cloud or on-premise options may be necessary to meet the customer's data protection requirements.

For example, if the customer's subsidiary in China requires that data be stored within China, then a private cloud solution in China may be the best option. Similarly, if the customer's other subsidiaries have different data protection requirements, then a hybrid solution that combines cloud and on-premise deployments may be necessary.

The Enterprise Architect must carefully consider the customer's specific requirements and constraints before making a decision about the deployment environment.

Here are some of the factors that the Enterprise Architect should consider:

The customer's data protection requirements:The Enterprise Architect must understand the customer's specific data protection requirements and ensure that any solution meets those requirements.

The availability of cloud-based solutions that meet the customer's requirements:Not all cloud-based solutions meet the same data protection requirements. The Enterprise Architect must ensure that the cloud-based solutions that are being considered meet the customer's requirements.

The cost of different deployment options:The Enterprise Architect must consider the cost of different deployment options, including cloud, private cloud, and on-premise.

The scalability and performance requirements of the solution:The Enterprise Architect must ensure that the solution meets the customer's scalability and performance requirements, regardless of the deployment environment.

By carefully considering all of these factors, the Enterprise Architect can make a decision about the deployment environment that meets the customer's specific requirements and constraints.

Topic 2, Case Study -- Wanderlust

Introduction

Wanderlust GmbH, headquartered in Germany but with manufacturing facilities and sales globally, is a leading global manufacturer of conventional fuel driven cars. They are renowned for their best-in-class engineering, but not so much for aftermarket customer service. In recent years, Wanderlust has had limited success expanding into the market of electric vehicles. Following is Wanderlust's geographical manufacturing and supply spread:

Wanderlust offers one compact electric Sedan (model ELAN) and one compact electric SUV (model ELUV), each with three variants -- basic (LX), mid-range (VX) and high-end (ZX). Customers can also choose from a range of five metallic colors, two drive trains and two battery ranges.Overall, 50 different combinations are offered for all segments and variants put together.

Constraints/Issues

o Stiff water consumption regulations and enormous penalties for violation -- Lithium extraction is a

heavy water intensive process and mine locations are in very arid areas like the Australian outback

and Atacama Desert

o Significant dependence on external suppliers of Lithium batteries due to limited number of

manufacturing units, long lead times and high carbon footprint in all car manufacturing facilities except

Brazil.

o Long delays in spare battery availability, leading to an avalanche of unresolved battery related

customer complaints for vehicles under warranty

o Limited charging infrastructure, long charging cycles (as compared to refilling fuel) and slow resolution

of battery related complaints.

o Dwindling in store footfall due to pandemic (for feature-based vehicle selection prior to test drive)

o Wanderlust is reluctant to consider cloud for Core applications due to data privacy concerns, but are

open for Collaboration applications

o Automobile business started off in Europe and grew through acquisitions in Asia and Americas

o Automobile business runs on three continental SAP ECC instances with inherited, disparate

processes, which need to move to S/4HANA

o Automobile business is also looking to harmonize their processes across the continents, adopt a

seamless, transparent global supply chain for batteries and consolidate the continental instances into

a global single instance, data regulations permitting

o Automotive business uses a highly complex custom developed dealer management solution on ECC,

which needs to be replaced

o Automotive business uses SAP APO, which is nearing end of lifecycle and needs to be replaced by

IBP (DP & SNP) & S/4HANA (PP-DS)

o Automotive business uses several bespoke non-SAP applications, which are considered

irreplaceable, except for the Marketing and Sourcing applications, whichare expensive to maintain,

seldom used and henceneed to be replaced

o Aftermarket business processes are largely uniform and handled through a single ECC instance which

also should move to S/4HANA

o Aftermarket business uses SAP SCM which is nearing end of lifecycle and needs to be replaced by

S/4HANA AATP (gATP) and eSPP (SPP)

Extracts from Interview with Enterprise Architect

Enterprise Architecture Dimensions & Maturity

o Wanderlust's Key EA Dimensions, their overall purpose and current maturity level

Top three priorities given the current maturity level, are as follows

o Stakeholder Involvement is the topmost priority, to create a Stakeholder Map that'll identify all key EA stakeholders within Wanderlust

o Business-IT Alignment is also a top priority, to anchor every IT initiative to a Business Strategy Map,

consisting of clearly defined strategic business objectives, tangible goals and measurable value drivers

o Architecture Development is the next priority, beginning with development of business architectures, followed by application architectures and finally opportunities & solutions planning

Enterprise Architecture Practice Structure (Current)

Enterprise Architecture Principles

o Wanderlust's Enterprise Architecture Principles are a collection of crisp and precise one liners

pertaining to business, application, information, integration, technology and security aspects of

transformation

o Some of the EA Principles in the repository are

These EA Principles serve as high level directional statements and long term guard rails to the above

six aspects of transformation programs & projects

o They should ideally correlate (many to many) with the Strategic Objectives, defined in the Business-IT

alignment EA Dimension -- this is yet to be done though


Question 5

Why would you recommend building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system based on SAP BTP?



Answer : B

There are a few reasons why you would recommend building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system based on SAP BTP.

SAP BTP is a cloud-based platform, which means that extensions can be developed, deployed, and managed in the cloud.This makes it easy to scale and manage extensions, and it also makes it easier to collaborate with other developers.

SAP BTP provides a number of services that can be used to build extensions, such as SAP Cloud Platform Integration and SAP Cloud Platform Event Mesh.These services can help to make extensions more scalable, reliable, and secure.

SAP BTP supports a variety of programming languages, which means that developers can use the language they are most comfortable with.This can help to make the development process more efficient and productive.

In addition to these reasons, SAP BTP also allows extensions to maintain SAP user and security context and allow the use of S/4HANA eventing. This is important because it ensures that users are only able to access the data and functionality that they are authorized to access, and it also allows extensions to react to events that occur in S/4HANA.

Therefore, SAP BTP is a good choice for building SAP Side-by-Side Extensions to an S/4HANA system.

Extensions on SAP BTP can maintain SAP user and security context, which means that the extensions can use the same authentication and authorization mechanisms as the S/4HANA system and respect the user roles and permissions defined in the S/4HANA system.

Extensions on SAP BTP can use S/4HANA eventing, which means that the extensions can subscribe to business events that are triggered by the S/4HANA system and react to them accordingly. For example, an extension can listen to a sales order creation event and perform some additional logic or integration based on the event data.

Extensions on SAP BTP can leverage the SAP Cloud Platform Integration Suite and the SAP HANA Data Management Suite, which provide a comprehensive set of services and tools for different integration scenarios, such as process integration, data integration, analytics integration, user integration, and thing integration.

Extensions on SAP BTP can benefit from the cloud-native capabilities of SAP BTP, such as scalability, elasticity, availability, and security. Extensions on SAP BTP can also take advantage of the various programming languages, frameworks, and technologies supported by SAP BTP, such as Java, Node.js, Python, Go, PHP, CAP, or serverless functions.

Question 6

As Chief Enterprise Architect, you want to select an extension option that follows SAP's clean-core strategy. What are your recommendations to implement the clean-core strategy best?



Answer : A

The clean-core strategy is a SAP initiative to keep the core of SAP S/4HANA as clean as possible by moving customizations and extensions to the side-by-side layer. This allows SAP to more easily deliver new releases of S/4HANA without having to worry about breaking custom code.

There are two main ways to extend SAP S/4HANA:

Developer Extensibility:This allows developers to extend the core of SAP S/4HANA by modifying the source code. This is not allowed under the clean-core strategy.

Side-by-Side Extensibility:This allows developers to extend SAP S/4HANA by creating new applications that run alongside the core system. These applications can communicate with the core system using public APIs.

The following are the benefits of using Side-by-Side Extensibility:

Flexibility:Side-by-Side Extensibility allows developers to extend SAP S/4HANA in any way they see fit.

Scalability:Side-by-Side Extensibility can be scaled to meet the needs of any organization.

Maintainability:Side-by-Side Extensibility is easier to maintain than Developer Extensibility, because custom code is not embedded in the core system.

Therefore, the best way to implement the clean-core strategy is to use Side-by-Side Extensibility. This will allow you to extend SAP S/4HANA in a flexible, scalable, and maintainable way.


Question 7

What kind of applications can you develop with SAP Business Application Studio?



Answer : C

SAP Business Application Studio is a modern development environment designed to support the development of various SAP-centric applications. Among the supported application types are:

SAPUI5 (SAP Fiori) applications (C): SAP Business Application Studio provides extensive tools and templates specifically tailored for developing SAPUI5 applications, which are the backbone of the SAP Fiori user experience. This includes support for frontend development with rich user interfaces, integration with SAP services, and adherence to SAP Fiori design principles.

Options A and B are incorrect because SAP Business Application Studio does not support ABAP development directly within its environment. ABAP development traditionally requires a different set of tools and environments provided by SAP, such as the ABAP Development Tools (ADT) in Eclipse or the ABAP environment on SAP Cloud Platform.
