KTern.AI is an automated Digital Workspace focused on SAP S/4HANA transformations and has ready-to-use automation features for project execution and business operations. Its auto-learning knowledge base engine S4HANAPEDIA.AI enables stakeholders with intelligent insights across all phases of the SAP Activate Methodology – Discover, Prepare, Explore, Realize, Deploy, Run.

You can get started with KTern by logging in with your Email ID at app.ktern.com.

Project Creation

Once you login to KTern.AI, you’ll be taken to the Project Launchpad. A project launchpad is nothing but a repository of all projects that the user is a part of. You can create a new project for an S/4HANA Implementation, System Conversion, Selective Data Transition, SuccessFactors implementation or C4C implementation as well from this window. In addition, KTern can be used in the Run Mode of any project.

You can also pre-define the project timeline and set up a project calendar. KTern will then automatically pre-generate an SAP Activate based project plan which can be customized according to your needs. If not, you can also upload a project plan from an excel sheet into KTern.

Workspace

After launching a project, a user will land up on the “My Workspace” screen by default. It is a dashboard which contains an overview of all the work items that you are a part of in the project. There are three main types of work items in the workspace – Tasks, Issues and Test Cases.
