What is CSM?

Core Systems Modernisation (CSM) is the university’s biggest ever change programme and will see all core IT systems including Finance, Procurement, HR, Payroll and student lifecycle management being replaced with a system called SAP. 

What does SAP stand for?

SAP stands for ‘Systems Applications and Products’ and this is the business management system we are using at DMU. The system is commonly known by it’s acronym ‘SAP’ and this name is used in much of the system’s terminology and by organisations across the world.
