This chapter examines the first of four phases every cloud implementation should have, beginning with the Launch phase and opening with an explanation of on-boarding methodology. While not a rehash of project management methodology, it provides best practice recommendations for selecting a project team, finding a partner, establishing project governance, creating project plans, reviewing and defining scope and transition, defining priorities, and refining roles and responsibilities.
In this chapter we start our point of sale (POS) project development. This chapter provides an overview of the ABAP Data Dictionary and its different objects (e.g., data elements, domains, structures, tables [database tables], views, search helps, and table types [internal table types]). We will then go through the process of creating all the main ABAP Data Dictionary objects that we will use in the development of the POS project in the following chapters. Finally, we will learn how to change or delete ABAP Data Dictionary objects.
