How to Accelerate Innovation

Yesterday John Krakowski from SAP Active Global Support was holding a demo theatre session at SAPPHIRE NOW named How to Enable Systems of Innovation with Two Value Releases per Year. If you missed this presentation, the session will be repeated on June 4, 4.00-4.20pm at the SAP ONE Support Center. Just add the session ID OS14942 to your agenda. Or you can stop by at our booth to have a 1on1 chat with one of our SAP Solution Manager experts. Here’s a picture taken during John’s demo:


The two value releases approach is quite impressive – on the one hand it’s very simple, on the other hand it’s extremely efficient. It empowers IT to deliver releases with tangible business value every six months without disruption to the business. Surely you want to take advantage of the latest innovations to help your business grow. But, when it comes to implementing innovations, they are stuck with the need to focus first on getting the prerequisites done. This costs time, right? And time is something you probably don’t have in a market environment which transforms businesses very fast. Thus, you might risk the danger of facing an innovation traffic jam if you are not able to manage this new pace of growth.

Are you concerned now? Just join the demo session to learn more about the new methodology which is part of SolMan and find out how it’ll help you to get out of this dilemma. Here’s an awesome simpleshow video explaining the concept on a high level:

Exemplified, how can this approach help you to reduce the time to innovate? With SAP Solution Manager and SAP’s impact analysis you will for example only need to test what really matters. Moreover, custom code is always costly and slows down innovation cycles. SAP helps you to reduce and avoid custom code through our application lifecycle management tools. If you want further information please check out this brochure as well as this whitepaper. To access the latter a valid S-User account is required as it is stored within the SAP Service Marketplace.
