DEFINITION: This is technical and analytical work in the review and redesign of business processes and the configuration and design of enterprise software for the Commonwealth’s Integrated Enterprise System (IES) SAP system.

An employee in this job is a member of a business operations team that redesigns business processes and configures and designs the enterprise software for a specific business area. The work includes assisting in reviewing and analyzing business processes, determining the most appropriate way to meet the business process needs using the software, analyzing the costs of customized changes to the software, configuring the enterprise software or developing specifications for customized changes to the system, and coordinating changes to the system with other business teams. A significant aspect of the work includes developing test
scripts and executing various tests to ensure that changes to the system work properly and do not have unforeseen effects on other business areas. The work also requires providing technical assistance to end users by assisting in analyzing and resolving system-related problems. Emphasis at this level is on learning to use and configure the enterprise software and understanding and analyzing the specialized business processes. Work is distinguished from the higher level by the more narrow scope of assignments, more detailed review of work in progress and upon completion, and absence of responsibility for serving in a project
leadership role. Work is assigned by an IES Business Operations Supervisor and is closely reviewed for effectiveness and satisfactory completion of assignments.
