SAP TechEd && d-code Pre-Conference Session: Express Delivery to Your Business with SAP Solution Manager

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 in order to get a solid decision base to consider during implementation.

In this session, presenters 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.

Also, presenters will discuss how it’s no longer necessary to rely on traditional waterfall approaches, and how you 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 this 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

Join us for this new, exciting and interactive session.  Register here.

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.

John Krakowski also says “The technical system landscape supported by SAP Solution Manager is a key element of a release strategy.  We’ll review the options and advantages of a dual track transport landscape to best support the lines of business and provide a flexible and stable production end user environment”.

**UPDATE** John Krakowski says “At our pre-conference, directly interact with special guest, Helmut Fieres, SAP AG, SVP responsible for development, SAP Solution Manager, about the next release SAP Solution Manager 7.2!”
