SAP has launched an SAP Advanced Deployment service, giving organisations the option to choose an SAP-led deployment of SAP S/4HANA for simpler, faster, and safer SAP S/4HANA adoption.
Developed in response to customer requests for SAP to prime their SAP S/4HANA deployments, the service reduces time to value, combining SAP’s extensive portfolio of tools, preconfigured services, methodologies, accelerators, knowledge, and experience to accelerate the transition to SAP S/4HANA.
“Today, the question is no longer if companies need to digitally transform, but when and how fast,” said Tom Janoshalmi, senior vice president and head, strategy and portfolio, SAP Digital Business Services, SAP.
“The journey, however, is risky as full alignment is required between business models, processes and technology. With SAP Advanced Deployment, SAP is offering end-to-end implementation of projects for SAP S/4HANA, freeing up time for businesses to focus on how they can use their new digital resources to their unique advantage.”
SAP Advanced Deployment leverages proven elements to streamline SAP S/4HANA deployments: the accelerated innovation road map first developed for SAP Value Assurance service packages; SAP Solution Manager 7.2 to facilitate conversations between IT and different lines of business; and the SAP Activate innovation adoption framework.
SAP Advanced Deployment provides:
- Planning and project management: SAP evaluates each business to identify the best implementation strategy for that business, determining the prerequisites and target architecture required for a successful implementation.
- Build, platform and data migration design: SAP evaluates the current capabilities of each business, then designs an accelerated innovation road map identifying the required technology, processes, and organisation.
- Build and data migration execution: SAP carries out the functional implementation of SAP S/4HANA for each business, either migrating an existing platform or facilitating the installation of a new platform, depending on the needs of the business.
