How long is a Duet Production project?
A Duet production project is estimated for a 6 – 9 week period. This estimate is variable based on the proposed landscape, number of users, number of scenarios etc. Review the Duet Implementation Kit for assumption variables.
Who needs to be involved?
The actual Duet Implementation can be done by a small team. Since Duet is made up of multiple components, some company groups may be called on to perform specific tasks, such as creation of users in the Active Directory, assigning SAP Backend authorization etc
The Duet Implementation Kit gives a breakdown of skills required in the team as well as examples of what specific tasks they would be responsible for. Examples of some of the skills required are Netweaver, ADS/Exchange, Business Experts, Security, Project Management, etc.
Tasks in a Duet Implementation Project
The Duet Implementation Kit tasks are broken down by the various phases and for each task the recommended skills required are provided. Some tasks specific for Duet are given a time estimate as well. Other tasks will need to be estimated by the implementation team as they depend on the unique situation at each customer.
Tasks are broken down by the different phases:
- Preparation and Blueprinting
- Final Preparation (Production Cut-over)
- Go-live and Support.
