BUSINESS CONFIGURATION

The "Business Configuration" course provides a broad overview of all of the components associated with business configuration in the ALIP platform. The course is not product or company specific, but instead concentrates on the business configuration framework.

Intended audience

This course is targeted towards resources that are looking to gain an understanding of what business configuration is, business configuration components of ALIP and what areas within ALIP are configurable. Because business configuration covers such a broad range of ALIP, this course is useful not only for all resources responsible for implementing business configuration in the platform (Business Analysts and Business Configurators), but also useful for resources looking for an understanding of what business configuration is and what area of the system are configurable (Technical: Developers and Architects, Testers and Leadership).

To attend this class, the participant does not have to have an in depth knowledge of products or even the company business. This makes the Business Configuration course a useful class for all resources, even new employees.
