Some time ago SAP put a new product on the market called RDS. RDS stands for Rapid Deployment Solution. Yes, I know. Some of you may think that the first two words of that new product do not go well with SAP. But take it from me…it does.
Let me recap what a RDS actually is:
– Fixed scope
– Fixed price
– Fixed time
These three things bring RDS down to what it is. A very short time to value with low risk and implementation costs.
For more detailed information, I would like to refer you to some great materials we have issued in the past:
Like the blog post of my colleague Klaus Christoph Müller
…OR our infographics on RDS
…OR our RDS Whitepaper
Now, you may ask yourself why I am telling you that itelligence is a fast adopter and what a RDS actually is. Well that has a very simple reason. A few weeks ago SAP, my industry colleagues and I spent a few days on qualifying the itelligence solutions as all-in-one Rapid Deployment solutions.
For our customers this means that we have proven we can implement an SAP solution within 6 months with a fixed price.
The 11 solutions we qualified apply for our markets in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. But thanks to our great partnership with SAP and our global network within itelligence we can take these results and proceed to undergo the same qualification in our worldwide markets.
Now, not to forget one important thing…what solutions did we qualify?
it.service, it.consumer, it.trade, it.retail, it.pharma, it.chemicals, it.manufacturing for Discrete Manufacturing, it.manufacturing, it.metal, it.automotive and it.hightronics.
We will keep you posted here on our blog about our worldwide qualification process.
Oh, and using the words of the late Steve Jobs “just one last thing”:
The solutions are deployable with classic databases, AND with the in-memory platform SAP HANA as a suite on HANA solution…
