    • Delivered at the Speed of Your Business Release new productivity apps on mobile devices in eight weeks? Add speed and capacity for ana- lyzing data in less than a month? Is this possible? Rapid-deployment solutions, available from SAP and its partners, are designed for quick, simple, and affordable installations in compa- nies of any size. Meeting many business needs, the solutions offer: •–Predictability – Of costs, timelines, and out- comes via clear pricing, fixed-scope services, and preconfigured content • Integration – With current functionalities, future landscapes, and innovations such as mobile, cloud, and in-memory computing • Choice – Of modules that address specific business needs You need answers fast to pressing business problems. Imple- menting new software can be daunting, however, for good reason. According to Michael Krigsman, CEO of Asuret Inc., up to 70% of IT projects fail to meet target deadlines, stay on budget, or deliver the expected functionality. Why be a statistic when you can take advantage of a stream- lined implementation strategy, fixed costs, and a short time to business value? And when you can look forward to tools that are designed to work as smoothly with future technology as they do with your existing functionality? SAP® Rapid Deployment solutions are revolutionizing the way people buy and consume software. The fixed scope and cost can help you meet your project deadlines, stay on budget, and quickly achieve your business goals by: •• Addressing the requirements of a specific industry or line of business •• Giving you a choice of deployment options – including on- premise, hosted, or cloud options •• Letting you incrementally unleash new innovations in your company – such as enterprise mobility, in-memory comput- ing, analytics, and more •• Providing clearly priced and scoped implementation services – measured in just days or weeks – for maximum predictability and minimum risk •• Accelerating time to value with best practices, templates, and tools •• Providing guides and educational materials to train power users and speed broader, company-wide end-user adoption Quickly Meeting Today’s Needs While Laying a Foundation for the Future SAP Rapid Deployment solutions are revolutionizing the way people buy and consume software. The fixed scope and cost can help you meet your project deadlines, stay on budget, and quickly achieve your business goals.
    • 5Nine Reasons Why SAP® Rapid Deployment Solutions Can Make Your Life Easier 5 Here are nine reasons why SAP Rapid Deployment solutions can make your job easier. Reason #1: Each Is a Complete Solution The solutions combine SAP software with implementation ser- vices provided by SAP Consulting or SAP partners.The solutions incorporate support for best practices, preconfigured content, and end-user educational materials in an innovative delivery model to speed the time to value for your investment. Consider the manager who wants to see how a particular prod- uct line is performing in various markets versus other company lines. Previously, this would require integrated analytics – a major IT undertaking. Leveraging the rapid-deployment solution for operational reporting with the SAP HANA® platform delivers predefined reports for sales, finance, and logistics in a matter of weeks. Packaged with SAP BusinessObjects™ business intelligence solutions, the rapid-deployment solution gives managers and key business users access to the latest data in real time on a PC browser or a mobile device. There, the manager can see in a modern, graphical user interface which geographic areas exceed a specified profitability level for the product in question. Reason #2: We’ve Got You Fully Covered The highly targeted solutions are available for many different line-of-business and industry-specific processes. Today, the solutions support such key process areas as: •• Sales, service, and marketing •• Supply chain management and procurement •• Product development and manufacturing •• Human resources •• Financials •• Operations and IT •• Mobile, in-memory, and cloud computing Reason #3: You Can Hit the Ground Running Most projects can be completed within 12 weeks – a single business quarter. Many take even less time. You get this fast time to value by leveraging SAP methodologies and implementation-acceleration tools honed over decades of installations at companies of all sizes, industries, and locations. The preconfigured content and proven educational materials, along with remote implementation delivery, further speed the deployment and get users up and running quickly. Reason #4: You Take Advantage of Standard SAP Software The solutions are based on standard SAP software, with the same enterprise-grade performance, integration, and scalability. You can use SAP Rapid Deployment solutions with all of the leading-edge functionality available in other SAP software. The solutions can serve as the foundation for a core enterprise re- source planning (ERP) solution or broaden your existing ERP footprint to meet new business needs. The solutions can also serve as integrated replacements for non-SAP software and will integrate with non-SAP systems. Reason #5: We’ve Designed the Solutions to Address Specific Needs With SAP Rapid Deployment solutions, predictability and flexi- bility go hand in hand. You decide up front what functionality you want to install. You can pick the exact business needs, adoption paths, licensing, and deployment options that suit your specific requirements. You can then customize or build on this functionality if you desire, now or in the future.
    • Reason #6: SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions Can Cut IT Costs The fixed scope and fixed cost keep your projects on budget. Reduced service expenses help keep the cost relatively low. You further control your budget by choosing only the software you need and taking advantage of cost-effective hosting options. The solutions can lower the ratio of service costs to license costs and reduce total cost of implementation and total cost of ownership. This helps you free up money and resources for additional projects that differentiate your company from the pack. Reason #7: SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions Can Reduce Risk Implementing enterprise software can present challenges due to scope creep, loose project management, unpredictability of costs and timelines, and internal demands for customization. The fixed scope, fixed cost, and support for best practices of- fered with each solution help keep your project on track. The preconfigured content and templates help you get exactly the functionality you expect, with minimal need for customization. And enablement and tailored training guides help ensure that postimplementation solution productivity is covered. Reason #8: You Have Many Implementation and Hosting Options Our partners offering implementation services for SAP Rapid Deployment solutions have the expertise and capabilities for successfully delivering the solutions under the same fixed- price and -scope framework. While cloud and hosting services from our partners bring a wide array of flexible pricing options, many offer fixed, monthly pricing for the infrastructures that support SAP Rapid Deployment solutions. Our partners also offer a comprehensive array of options for hardware and financing. Reason #9: It’s Much Easier to Meet New Business Needs SAP Rapid Deployment solutions provide a foundation upon which you can integrate new software as new challenges and new technology come along. Given the large portfolio of SAP Rapid Deployment solutions, you may begin with one or two solutions and have several others in mind for the future. As your competitive environment, business strategy, or general needs change, you can prioritize the rapid solutions you want to implement next. The results speak for themselves. SAP Rapid Deploy- ment solutions have been successfully installed by businesses of all sizes, from small businesses and midsize companies to the largest enterprises in the world, across all types of industries.
