The SAP Business ByDesign Go-Live Methodology Roadmap is designed to simplify the process of going live with the Business ByDesign solution. The Methodology Roadmap consists of project phases, workshops, accelerators, acceptance checkpoints, streams and project tasks.
The Prepare phase is critical because it lays the foundation of a successful cooperation, creating a joint understanding of the project scope and project goals and how to achieve them. Many of the workshops are conducted in the Prepare phase to assist with this.
Fine Tune & Integrate-Extend
The Fine-Tune aspect focuses on the system related activities. The organization structure is established and all system settings are completed. The Integrate & Extend aspect targets the custom content development (if applicable) and the data migration tasks. These tasks are executed in parallel with each other.
The Test phase focuses on ensuring that all the business scenarios and customer specific business processes can be executed in the SAP Business ByDesign system with the migrated data.
The Go-Live phase focuses on the cutover tasks and the business and people readiness. These are the final steps before the SAP Business ByDesign system is released to the end user for productive use. The business and people readiness are often underestimated and should be planned and prepared from the start of the project.
