Most every large company does business globally today – whether it’s communicating over the Web with customers from around the world or sharing multicountry operating business processes.
To do this successfully, global businesses need to communicate clearly, no matter which languages or technology platforms are used. Many organizations rely on Unicode, an international standard that supports virtually all languages and scripts. This helps you present information correctly at the local level and ensures that platform-dependent code pages comply with each other no matter what the country of origin.
Convert Your SAP Applications Today
To help our customers convert their non-Unicode SAP applications, we offer a conversion service that supports your globalization and localization efforts. Once your applications are converted, you can have global access in various languages and run your business processes with multiple language characters. The conversion service provides full integration with Java-based solutions as well as Internet-based communication technologies.
Consultants from the SAP Global Delivery group, part of the SAP Consulting organization, use a collaborative methodology based on proven industry best practices that support additional Unicode-supported characters and language keys. They deliver this service via the following steps:
- First, there is a comprehensive assessment of your requirements.
- Next, in conjunction with your staff, the consultants design a conversion plan that includes a single encoding schema for international operations and communications.
- The conversions are then executed within a fixed scope and at a predetermined cost.
By clearly defining the cost, scope, and schedule of the service, we offer terms and quality that you can rely on to support your international business operations. Using the conversion service, you’ll gain a faster return on IT investments by adopting a standard coding approach. And you’ll also experience increased operational efficiency through consolidated IT assets.
