  17. 17. Example 4: Modular content delivery through ASAP Business Add-Ons KEY MESSAGE 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) ASAP Core – common project deliverables ASAP Business Add-on – industry or solution focused Phase Sub-Deliverable Work stream Deliverable Deliverable Sub-Deliverable Scenario “Demand Planning” Sub-Deliverable Process 1 Process Step 1 Standard deliverables for entire delivery project lifecycle Delivers solution or industry specific implementation Streamlined – reduced complexity content Emphasizes new and strategic areas, e.g. Integrated Can be switched on/off based on project needs Service Delivery, Value Delivery, Modeling, SOA etc. Designed to support implementable steps/solutions Includes standard SAP Service references Uses ASAP Core content as basis Value-added accelerators, templates and samples Clearly defined owner, delivery plan and maintenance Establishes “anchor” points for solution/industry/project strategy type add-ons© SAP AG 2009.

  29. 29. Implementation AccelerationBroader 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.” Reduction of Friction Acceleration = IP Re-Use x x Elimination of Re-Work Parallelization Smallest possible increments along a value based roadmap
