Until recently, the primary mission of SAP rapid-deployment solutions (making SAP faster and simpler to deploy) applied to our on-premise LoB and industry solutions, as well as our technology platforms, such as SAP HANA and SAP Mobile, where over 40% of the SAP rapid-deployment solutions comes from today! However since the end of 2012, we began extending more and more into the cloud, helping our customers to extend their on-premise SAP investments to the SAP cloud. And most recently, we’ve extended this portfolio to offer bi-directional, “hybrid integrations” to Ariba, SuccessFactors and SAP Jam.
SAP Rapid Deployment solutions for integrating cloud and on-premise based processes deliver the accelerated results our +2,400 RDS customers have come to expect, delivering packaged content, enablement and business process scenarios with fixed-price and timeframe implementation services. Moreover, these solutions create a bridge between SAP on-premise solutions… for example, between SAP Materials Management, Logistics & SRM and the Ariba Collaborative Commerce Network, allowing customers to:
- Quickly add-value to SAP on-premise Materials Management & SRM by extending the product catalogue to the Ariba Collaborative Commerce Network
- Fortify the Ariba Network with SAP ERP data in the purchase order and invoice automation process
- Apply bi-directional integration – at a data & process level thanks to SAP NetWeaver Process Orchestration
- Supporting “procure-to-pay” and “order-to-cash” processes
