Today’s New Reality
The context in which businesses operate today
Today’s Business Challenges
Economic climate demands for a fast return on investment, often within the same year of the implementation
Business requirements tend to have earlier expiration dates due to the climate changes
Companies must see act fast and clearly
Customers ask for Implementation Acceleration and Best Practices
Look for ways to maximize business value
Ask for Visibility on the progress of projects and want measurable results early
Express the need to get it right for the first time
“Customers want smaller, focused projects with fast ROI” (Henning Kagermann, preliminary result meeting 2009)

Example 4: Modular content delivery through
ASAP Business Add-Ons
ASAP Core does not contain solution or industry specific content; Business Add-on packages deliver this
content
ASAP Core with Add-ons defines specific project deliverables (e.g. WBS)

Deliverable
Sub-Deliverable
Standard deliverables for entire delivery project lifecycle
Streamlined – reduced complexity
Emphasizes new and strategic areas, e.g. Integrated

Includes standard SAP Service references
Value-added accelerators, templates and samples
Establishes “anchor” points for solution/industry/project
type add-ons
Delivers solution or industry specific implementation
content
Can be switched on/off based on project needs
Designed to support implementable steps/solutions

Blueprint Approach
SAP’s Blueprint Approach is based on the following proven methodologies
Value Realization, which creates the framework for scope and delivery of expected benefits
Business Process Management Methodology (BPMM), which provides the framework for
process decomposition
Agile Acceleration Techniques at SAP, that support the speed to market; they incorporate
visualizations, iterative feedback loops and frequent control points

Implementation Acceleration
Broader than Agile
Acceleration is based on sustainable assets and the re-usable content, as well as tools and
technology that provide a structure for re-use
Acceleration can be accomplished through the elimination of unnecessary work steps within
the implementation life cycle
Acceleration of implementation and lowering of overall cost can often best be realized through
getting it right the first time, eliminating the need for rework and associated delays
Acceleration can be achieved through compression techniques such as parallelization of
activities and new work shop approaches
“If your only tool is a hammer, then every problem begins to look like a nail.”
Acceleration =
Reduction of Friction
x Elimination of Re-Work
Parallelization
Smallest possible increments along a value based roadmap
