SAP rolled out three new enterprise resource planning (ERP) rapid-deployment solutions to speed and simplify adoption of SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA. Rapid-deployment solutions include preconfigured software, implementation services, best-practices content and end-user enablement. The new SAP ERP for Finance and Controlling, SAP ERP for Manufacturing and SAP ERP for Trading SAP Rapid Deployment solutions come with a fixed price.
Delivered as a complete package with a modular approach, SAP Rapid Deployment solutions are intended to allow customers to incrementally deal with business needs at their own pace in a simple and pre-integrated framework that can help them achieve value quickly.
Rapid deployment of SAP ERP for Finance and Controlling, SAP ERP for Manufacturing and SAP ERP for Trading join with an earlier packaged solution for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA - the SAP CRM powered by SAP HANA rapid-deployment solution. The package is also available in an advanced approach to enterprise customer relationship management (CRM), the SAP 360 Customer solution.
The modular framework of rapid-deployment solutions allows customers to select what they need when they need it, while providing a path to future improvements. Total implementation time for rapid deployment of SAP CRM powered by SAP HANA can occur within 12 weeks or less, according to SAP.
“The promise of SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA and SAP 360 Customer is to enable businesses to run faster, simpler and smarter,” said Steven Birdsall, senior vice president and general manager, SAP Rapid Deployment Solutions. “Now, through rapid-deployment, we have wrapped this innovation into an easily accessible package as well. We have helped reduce implementation barriers for a non-disruptive and practical transformation into real-time business. Rapid-deployment solutions are offering customers game-changing innovation with controlled risk.”
According to SAP, rapid-deployment solutions supporting SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA deliver accelerated implementation for core ERP modules in finance and accounting; trading and inventory operations; and logistics and procurement for manufacturing in six months or less. Rapid-deployment solutions supporting SAP 360 Customer enable enterprises to quickly build a comprehensive view of their customers. SAP 360 Customer leverages real-time transactional analytics across a wide array of touch-points, including mobile and social media, to better contextualize interactions and improve the overall customer experience.
