SAP is continuously explore new approaches to accelerate software deployment projects with innovative approaches and bring these improvements into the implementation methodology. The most recent innovation, VISCAP follows SAP Activate methodology that builds on proven approaches and principles outlined below

  • Start with Best Practices – leverage Rapid Deployment Solutions (RDS), SAP Best Practices, Model Company or other pre-built assets
  • Pre-assembly and cloud ready – rapidly build solution environment in the cloud based on the Best Practices to accelerate validation activities
  • Validate Solution – guide customer through the standard functionality in show-and-tell sessions; identify and validate delta requirements and gaps; design solution that minimizes modifications to standard and enables faster innovation
  • Agile build – use iterative build of capabilities, prototyping and frequent validation of the results with business users to ease adoption and release solutions to business faster
  • Premium Engagement Ready – customers under SAP MaxAttention and SAP Active Embedded agreements will find guidance for use of control centers and related services in the methodology (e.g. Innovation Control Center, Operations Control Center and Mission Control Center)
  • Quality Built-In – formal risk and quality management with structured quality management plan and pre-defined Q-Gates are built into the project from the start

The implementation of an application depends heavily on the deployment mode, SAP offers two types of SAP Activate:

  • The on-premise SAP Activate Methodology will support project management teams within either an on-premise or privately-managed cloud environment. At each level in the hierarchy, clients will have access to accelerators such as examples and templates to facilitate the implementation project.
  • The SAP Activate Methodology for Cloud offers an implementation foundation that will work with subscription-based software, such as SaaS solutions. The solution accelerators improve efficiency by giving the PM team tools that are specifically designed to complete the project. SAP Activate for Cloud is more streamlined than a conventional system, which makes it optimal for smaller programs. It integrates easily with larger on-site projects for a hybrid implementation with one methodology.


  • Prepare The team initiates and plans a project that includes risk and quality management plans. The environment is built and includes best practices for ready-to-run approaches.
  • Explore In general, the client team will explore SAP solutions while the system integrator analyzes the client’s business. Combined, they utilize fit/gap analysis to identify extensions and configurations to meet the client’s requirements.
  • Realize The project team extends and configures the system, used the prioritized requirements as defined within the Explore phase. Build and configuration occur in shorter cycles, thereby ensuring validation and feedback from the client. Data migration and structured testing ensure high quality.
  • Deploy Final preparation ensures the users, system, and data are prepared for transition to productive utilization. This transition includes set up and launch support that leads to turning operations over to the business managing the environment.
