SAP Data Architect



United Kingdom
Posted on Thursday, June 27, 2024

About the job you’re considering

As a SAP Data Architect, you will join our growing SAP team and support presales, data architecture and data migration of our client’s SAP programmes. As one of the leading SAP System Integrators, our data capability includes using the latest SAP technologies, including S/4HANA, SAP Migration Cockpit, SAP Data Services, SAP Information Steward and SAP MDG. Data is pivotal to S/4 transformations and you will be key to enabling our clients to move to a data led approach, involved with all aspects of data on our S/4HANA programs.

You will be performing data lead, advisory roles on SAP engagements across multiple industries. You will have a breadth of knowledge across several data tools. You will be able to advise clients on data considerations and business impacts between a standard ETL migration in comparison to a Selective Data Transition transformation. You will help drive both the solutions and generate business using your experience of implementing complex SAP solutions. You will work with our clients from the start of their journey through to go-live.

Hybrid working: The places that you work from day to day will vary according to your role, your needs, and those of the business; it will be a blend of Company offices, client sites, and your home; noting that you will be unable to work at home 100% of the time.

Your role

As a SAP Data Architect you will perform a key role in providing advisory services to clients to help them analyse the Data impacts/needs during the deployment of complex SAP solutions that leverage the latest SAP technologies; helping to define propositions that address the challenges of Data Migration and Data Management using a data led approach; leading the SAP data stream, working alongside SAP functional and technical streams, during analysis/design phases of projects/programmes helping to influence business stakeholders; giving oversight and leadership during the technical/functional configuration and build activities relating to Data during implementation/testing phases.

High quality data is the new oil and is key to enable our customers to become data driven organisations.
Demand for improved data quality and the move to S/4HANA is driving demand for SAP Data Consultants, to ensure that not only the data that is migrated is of a high quality and delivered on time, but that the governance processes and tools are in place too.
