Such projects are currently rare in the market, which makes them truly unique. It is crucial to not only discuss the latest developments at the event but also share our experiences, as we did in our case. We received active feedback from the audience. During my presentation, I emphasized the numerous advantages of the cloud version and specifically highlighted the effective utilization of Best Practices. Incorporating these practices significantly reduces project execution timeframe and helps standardize our client’s business processes.

Following the presentation, the audience asked numerous questions regarding the advantages of SAP S/4HANA compared to SAP ECC. Telecommunication companies present at the event showed interest in undertaking similar projects in Kazakhstan.
