  • As we know, a lot has changed in the last four years, both in our overall economy, as well as how customers view new IT investments.While it had been an ongoing trend since the dot-com bust, the move away from large, complex projects by businesses was solidified by the risk adverse conditions set in place 2008, and this is something we believe is here to stay.Customers want to move forward, they want to innovate, but they are only willing to do so in a low-risk, incremental way. This allows the organization to feel the benefits and business impact of new innovations over a shorter period, and before moving on to follow-on areas. While at the same time, it allows the customers to adjust course where and when necessary, as their overall market or competitive environments change… which we all know can happen quite quickly, both positively and negatively!<<nextslide>>
  • Revolutionizing the way customers buy and consumer SAP solutions.SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions take the complexity out of SAP implementations, delivering value in weeks.SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions are:FastQuickly address specific needs Gain fast time to value with seamless rapid-deployment tools, embedded best practicesSpeed end-user adoption with guides and educational materialsSimpleSolutions that are tailored to deliver business outcomes, along with clearly priced services and project time frames.Modular yet integrated solutions – help ensure long-term landscape integritySupport across all environments (on-premise, mobile, and cloud) – leveraging the cloud-based quick start to accelerate projects & to extend existing investments<<nextslide>>
  • Inside of each rapid-deployment solution are 4 components: modular software software, addressing a customer’s specific business needs, packaged with predefined services, that was a fixed scope & price, so you know how much to the total solution will cost, what functionality you will get and when.The then finally are content and enablement, which we see as the “secret sauce” of rapid-deployment solutions:ContentSAP-supportedbestpractices, templates, andtoolsmakesolutionadoptioneasierEnablementGuides andeducational material speed end-user adoption<<Suggestion topresenter>> => Have a sample step-by-stepguide open in a seperate web-browser, toshowthetoolandcontents in real-time

  • As part of SAP, our unique mission is to our customers to help our customers get the most out of our software for the lowest price possible. Our definition of success is not to increase our services business, but rather to help you Run Like Never Before.SAP Consulting is the Development Partner for the RDS offerings. We have the most knowledge and experience with them when they become available. SAP Consulting can help you leverage our Sales Maps, which lay out how you can use RDS's as "building blocks" to achieve your business goals. Our factory approach to implementations (called Assemble-to-Order) will allow you to consume RDS modularly, building the right combinations to address your business needs. We have 1,800 highly trained and educated consultants on SAP software with a certification rate of over 90%We have the best access to the rest of SAP – support, development, etc. We have the greatest visibility into how other companies solved similar problems using SAP software
  • Along with SAP Services, Partners are vital in helping deliver the promise of SAP rapid-deployment solutions to the market: delivering innovation and business outcomes, all under a fixed cost, and under a set time-frameSince engaging in late 2011, the SAP ecosystem has embraced rapid deployment solutions, including:+250 SAP partners are providing qualified implementation services for rapid-deployment solutions+160 qualified partner rapid-deployment offerings on SAP partners provide rapid-deployment solutions under a flexible and seamless deployment model<<nextslide>>

  • SAP Rapid Deployment solutions offers a new path of flexibility and choice. The advent of cloud has brought a whole new level of flexibility and ease of deployment. At the same time, public clouds have their limitations to support complex, industry processes, or transactions where security or massive scalability is a chief factor.With rapid-deployment solutions, we’ve created an on-premise solution that is modular, yet integrated, and thanks to our unique delivery approach, can be deployed in a matter of weeks. At the same time, you aren’t limited to the standard functionality in each solutions, like most SaaS offerings that can only be configured. All of the savings gained from a rapid-deployment solutions, from resources to budget to time savings, can be reapplied into solutions extensions, only where where true competitive differentiation is delivered.We call this “RDS plus,” where you can begin with a rapid-deployment solution, which harnesses our 40 years of experience with over 200,000 customers into best-practices for each package, and can then layer on over 350 engineered services from SAP Consulting or our partners, to help extend the solution where it makes sense.=> Next slide
  • For when on-premise is the best choice for a particular area of functionality, you can also turbo-charge your rapid deployment solution with a Cloud-based Quick Start. Under this scenario, which is offered at no additional fee, customers can pre-assemble, configure and test their rapid-deployment solution in an SAP development cloud, and then migrate to the final infrastructure; cutting overall deployment effort by ~1/3. Here customers also have the choice of going on-premise for production, or to a partner’s private cloud. The choice is theirs.Private clouds, offered by our partners to support rapid-deployment solutions, bring the power of virtualization and infrastructure cost reductions, while on-premise remains a center piece of most enterprise application landscapes, but must meet the expectations of today’s customers to be easy to buy, deploy and use, as is the case in the cloud…Finally, we are now rolling-out rapid-deployment solutions that support a hybrid cloud. So for example, if you are using SAP ERP, HCM or CRM on-premise, and you would like to extend to a cloud solution for social collaboration, talent management or procurement, you can now do this in a seamless, integrated way. We are now offering rapid-deployment solutions that provide bi-directional integration, at a data and process level, for when you are looking to extend to SAP StreamWork & Jam for collaboration, or to SAP Information Interchange OnDemand for procurement, or to SuccessFactors for talent management. This allows customers to unlock added value from their existing on-premise SAP investments, while maintaining a stable, integrated environment to the cloud.
  • Rapid-deployment solutions in the cloud help to create a bridge between SAP on-premise, such as ERP, HCM or CRM, to new cloud solutions such as SAP Information Interchange OnDemand, SuccessFactors and SAP Streamwork/JamAdded-value to existing SAP on-premise investments, through cloud extensionsFortify cloud solutions with rich SAP business suite dataExtend your data-center to the cloudBi-directional integration - at a data & process levelFlexibility to decide what makes sense: on-premise, private- or public-cloud

  • Let’s put a little more detail on what we are providing with SuccessFactors=> Next Slide
  • As you can see there are quite a few connections we are helping to build between traditional on-premise SAP software, SuccessFactors in the cloudFor starters, customers who are using SAP ERP or HCM on-premise, can extended their on-premise solution into Talent Management in the cloud, with SAP master data enriching both the BizX talent suite and the SuccessFactors analytics suiteAdditionally, in a second wave of solutions, we will be delivering this integration from our OnDemand platform, SAP Netweaver Cloud, with additional process scenarios, around areas like Compensation and Recruiting.And finally, there is a rapid deployment solution that will allow the SuccessFactors Analytics suite to run on SAP HANA in a matter of weeks, applying a game-changing SAP innovation to the SuccessFactors cloud, under a fixed time and price, just like all rapid-deployment solutions.<<nextslide>>
