SAP Activate in under 9 minutes

I’m often asked to provide short overview of SAP Activate to new customers, implementation partners, and SAP colleagues. Recently I started pointing interested parties to the series of SAP Activate minute recordings the Activate team released last year. They provide great level set overview of what SAP Activate delivers and how customers use it as they deploy their SAP solutions.

Goal of this blog post is to give you one stop shop to access all these videos. You can find them on YouTube in the SAP Activate playlist. And it may not be easy to jump from one video to next as the list shows the videos in “wrong” sequence by default. It is sorted from newest video to oldest, putting Run phase first. Anyways I digress.

Let’s start with the introduction of SAP Activate in this one-minute-long clip. It helps to answer what is SAP Activate.

Now we can start going through the individual phases and outline the key activities and deliverables in each. We will follow the six phases structure from Prepare to Run as as shown in the image below.








I hope this was useful post and that you will explore the Activate playlist for additional videos about fit-to-standard, Roadmap Viewer, SAP Cloud ALM, and other topics. Access the playlist here.

Also remember to join us next week on March 15th for our first community call in 2023. Hope to see you all there.

      Thank you Amin Omidy for your comment. I'm glad this is helping people learn about Activate and use the videos that are somewhat buried inside YouTube channel.

      Jan Musil, you've provided an excellent way of structuring and explaining SAP Activate in digestible chunks. At the (likely) risk of it being already covered elsewhere, I'd be most interested if you could provide something similar that aligns RISE with Activate. If you look at Onboard with SAP Activate for RISE with SAP S/4HANA Cloud | SAP Learning that alignment is unclear (not that I'm suggesting that content is flawed by any means). I envisage SAP Activate as the encapsulating framework under which RISE is a subset. If not presently, perhaps in the future. Thanks!
