SAP for Me while using SAP Activate Methodology
In SAP Activate, you will find tasks, procedures, and accelerators to guide you during the systems/tenants provisioning process.
SAP for Me in an SAP Activate task
In SAP Activate Methodology, a task is defined as work to be performed. One or several tasks comprise a deliverable. You will find the first task Initial Access to SAP for Me, in the SAP Activate Roadmap SAP Activate Methodology for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition (3-system landscape), during the Prepare phase as you start the journey of implementing your SAP solution using SAP Activate Methodology. This task will help you find the right authorizations, verify access and log into SAP for Me.
SAP for Me in an SAP Activate procedure step
Within each task, you find procedure steps to break down the individual step needed to complete the task. It is very important to read each procedure step to know how to execute each task and which platform to use. Below is an example of a procedure step to request access to the SAP Central Business Configuration tenant. Review the prerequisite task, the procedure notes, and the accelerator section before requesting the tenant.
SAP for Me in an SAP Activate Accelerators
In SAP Activate, accelerators are web-link, document, or template that helps you perform the task.
When you are ready to request your system, after reading the procedure steps within a task, you can just follow the web link provided to take you to the provisioning section of SAP for Me. SAP Activate Roadmap Viewer is always available as a reference as you go through the provisioning steps. You can always go back, re-read the instruction, review accelerators and any available tutorial before performing the steps.
The above information was just a few examples of where the SAP for Me platform is mentioned in SAP Activate. Get familiar with the platform, as you will use it right away to request the initial tenants: SAP Cloud ALM, SAP Central Business Configuration, SAP S/4HANA Cloud Starter Customizing, and SAP S/4HANA Cloud Starter Developments tenants at the start of your implementation. Enabling yourself early will help you go through the process smoothly.
You can also review the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public cloud (3-system landscape) accelerator, for more details about the Starter System Provisioning Process and get used to the new platform you will be using during the implementation.
You will not use SAP for Me for system provisioning only; the platform provides other specialized dashboards for SAP Customers and SAP Partners. You can find more information on understanding when to use SAP for me in the following accelerator Help – SAP for Me User.
