During 2009, behind-the-scenes work was undertaken to harmonize the way we project manage SAP implementations. The result is the new ASAP Methodology For Implementations. The new ASAP Methodology brings together the previous ASAP methodology, BISA (Business Intelligence Solution Accelerator) methodology, Value Delivery principles, Business Process Management methodology, and Service-Oriented Architecture methodology.
The two highly visible components of the ASAP Methodology are:
The ASAP Roadmap 7.0. It covers the entire project life-cycle – from evaluation through delivery to post project solution management and operations as well as the value, process and application life-cycle. The new ASAP Roadmap 7.0 has been made more lean, increasing its practicality. The new ASAP methodology provides transparency of value delivery through consistent business case reflection and ensures efficient guidance for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Business Process Management (BPM) and traditional implementation projects.
The ASAP Business add-ons that extend the ASAP Roadmap with modular business implementation content. The business add-ons provide proven implementation content for implementation of various industry solutions, solutions packages, and other related areas such as Agile Methodology, BPM, SOA, and EA Governance and Strategy frameworks. ASAP Business add-ons will be delivered later in the first half of the year.
You will be able to access the new ASAP Methodology For Implementation via SAP Solution Manager, SAP Service Marketplace, and AcceleratedSAP (ASAP) Methodology and Business Add-Ons.
I’m looking forward to hear your ongoing expertise comments, ideas and experiences in the use of the new ASAP Methodology For Implementation and I am welcoming you to join the new Forum:
