With the rise of new technologies as SAP S/4HANA with ACR framework at SAP, there is a need of enabling partners to support customers in the process of improving the way they run their businesses with SAP.
After this workshop, SAP has now a group of consultants in Colombia that is able to help customers to run with S/4HANA in ACR framework, a tool that brings simplification to customers when it comes to reporting huge amounts of complex data. Besides, there is now more room for boosting ACR sales in Latin America.
