Enabling Rapid Innovation with the SAP Cloud Platform Discovery Center
For years companies have felt the pressure to undergo digital transformation. Unfortunately, during this time of unprecedented change, several industries have been thrown into a whirlwind. It has forced many companies and organizations to innovate – almost immediately.
To support businesses as they face these challenges and transform as quickly as possible, SAP provides a single location for inspiration, information, and implementation support.
SAP Cloud Platform Discovery Center
How the Discovery Center Enables Rapid Innovation with Cloud Platform
The SAP Cloud Platform Discovery Center offers clearly defined paths for customers to eliminate pain points and resolve their challenges with a well-defined solution. These structured paths are called missions.
- Use case descriptions
- Business value
- Solution diagrams
- List of required platform services
- Beneficial resources
- Step-by-step guidance
- Customer testimonials
All missions are based on real-life scenarios and include best practice material and interactive guidance on how to successfully go-live. By understanding our customers’ pain points, we can pave a clear path for success. The solution diagrams, lists of required platform services, and additional resources all assist our customers with the most beneficial information at the exact time when needed. With step-by-step guidance and coaching, customers are supported from project start to challenge resolution. Customer testimonials showcase how others have achieved their success and the process they went through. Each mission is crafted by the expertise of SAP teams or SAP partners.
The discovery center has also recently added the service catalog and cost estimator. The integration of these tools provides customers with the ability to view the full scope, cost, and requirements directly from the project’s initiation. For more details on the service catalog, Holger Neuert takes a deep dive here.
When change happens even quicker than we expect, a rapid response is also required. The analysis of the current situation, the search for solutions, and the implementation of necessities, all need to happen fast. By offering businesses the opportunity to browse through relevant use cases, see the required components, estimate the costs, and learn from others who have successfully conquered the task before them, we can better enable companies to rapidly innovate and pivot when needed.
New missions are on the horizon.
As business scenarios evolve and new obstacles creep up, the discovery center will consistently grow. New missions will continue to address the latest challenges and enable our customers with the best resources and guidance for a successful SAP Cloud Platform implementation.
