SAP’s John Krakowski is providing more information below on his ASUG SAP TechEd & d-code pre-conference session:
Deliver Software Solutions Fast with Design Thinking and Agile Software Engineering
Businesses are continually challenged with managing their IT complexity, a point proven by their high level of IT spending. The majority of IT budgets typically are allotted for hardware and services, leaving very little that is available for innovation.
Businesses in any market have bold dreams to expand to new markets, and are under extreme pressure to transform complex solutions quickly. SAP customers need to innovate and overhaul their traditional business models nimbly to compete in their marketplaces. However, adopting innovations can cause risks and additional costs for existing operations.
To meet consumer demands, and adopt new business models and partnerships, companies demand SAP solutions that address their business challenges while identify risks in an early phase, to get a solid decision base to consider during implementation.
In this session, we will demonstrate how the Pace-Layered Architecture Strategy*, introduced by Gartner Inc., will prove that safe adoption of innovation is indeed possible. You will discover how to achieve rapid innovation while making your corporate rollouts a non-event for the business.
Design-thinking concepts enable you to best understand new business models, and lead discussions concerning desirability, viability and feasibility within the business transformation office. These concepts translate the new business models into an IT solution addressing these needs exactly. In the session, we’ll explain how design-thinking is a methodology that can unleash your ideas and creativity.
Also, we’ll discuss how we no longer have to rely on traditional waterfall approaches, but can leverage agile software engineering methods to capture the ‘big picture’ in prototypes quickly to ultimately ‘build the right things’ and ‘build the things right’.
Throughout our session, you will learn and take away how SAP Solution Manager is well-equipped to serve as the central delivery platform to facilitate the rapid prototyping of new solutions, business models and capabilities to:
- Document system landscapes and end-to-end applications
- Manage the release strategy to filter business requirements
- Improve, reduce and avoid custom code required to support business processes
- Reduce testing efforts by only testing what has changed, and by automated tests
- Carefully manage dual-track system landscapes
In summary, the goal of our session is to introduce a standardized methodology and integrated tool chain to successfully enable companies who are seeking to maintain and increase their competitive edge through innovative business processes, with minimal risk to live operations.
Join us for this new, exciting and interactive session!
You’re ensured to take away key information on how to build differentiating and innovative software solutions on top of SAP’s existing industry best practices, leveraging SAP Solution Manager, providing lower time to market and enable tangible value realization for your company.
