SAP Activate

The solution to a smooth platform changeover

Would you like to switch to S/4HANA, but shy away from the process of conversion?

SAP Activate is a combination of SAP best practices, an agile methodology, and guided configuration tools to simplify the implementation of SAP S/4HANA. No matter which migration approach you choose, SAP Activate provides best practices for any migration path and leverages an end-to-end methodology for operating in the cloud, on-premise, or in a hybrid environment.

SAP Activate is integrated with S/4HANA and does not require additional licenses to use. CONSILIO advises you on the implementation of S/4HANA so that you can expand SAP's business processes without delay. This is the basic prerequisite for continuously improving your own best practices and thus increasing the innovative power of your company. With SAP Activate, digitization is decisively simplified and also accelerated.

SAP Best Practices

Whether for finance or logistics, with SAP Best Practices for S/4HANA you have ready-to-use, digitized business processes that are integrated with other cloud solutions such as SuccessFactors or the Ariba Network. Based on these best practices, we guide you safely through the migration. It doesn't matter whether you want to migrate from a legacy or third-party system to S/4HANA.

Our goal and the aim of SAP Activate is to help you realize the full potential of S/4HANA tailored to your business needs.

Guided configuration

Guided configuration makes S/4HANA implementation much easier. You can think of guided configuration as a set of tools for implementation and continuous development after go-live. That is, with guided configuration, you can adopt updates and changes to your configuration, continuously stay on the innovation track, and continually adapt your system in an agile way. IT and business can collaborate directly through configuration with user guidance to achieve the desired goal. This collaboration is documented and available for later use as a configuration history.

Let us advise you on how to use this tool to strengthen your company and IT through user assistance and business process affinity.

Consistent methodology

SAP Activate uses a consistent methodology for any operating model: S/4 in the cloud, on-premise, or in a hybrid environment. The methodology is the starting point for any S/4HANA implementation and is divided into the following components:

  • Start with Best Practices: Use of Rapid Deployment Solutions (RDS), SAP Best Practices, Model Company, or other pre-built assets.
  • Pre-Assembly and Cloud Ready: Rapidly build the solution environment in the cloud based on best practices to accelerate validation activities
  • Validation of the solution: Review standard functionality, identify and validate delta requirements and gaps, design a solution that minimizes changes to the standard and enables faster innovation
  • Agile implementation: Iteratively build features, prototype and validate results with users to deliver solutions to the business faster
  • Quality Built-in: Risk and quality management with a structured quality management plan and predefined Q-gates are built into the project from the start

Take advantage of the many years of experience of our experts and thus benefit from the full potential of introducing S/4HANA more easily with the agile methodology.

In these 5 phases we successfully implement S/4HANA with SAP Activate

Overall, SAP Activate is divided into five phases. They are: Prepare, Explore, Realize, Implement, and Execute. Although this may seem like a waterfall model at first glance, SAP Activate works like an agile method. The important thing here is that permanent, continuous innovation takes place in the phases. This means that a return to the previous phase is possible at any time.

This is where the advantage of the agile implementation method becomes apparent compared to the waterfall principle. Since implementation is not a single process, but runs simultaneously on several levels, separate project management saves time in the end. If necessary, individual stages return to a previous stage, correct the critical points found and then go back to the test phase. Other project areas continue to work simultaneously on the introduction.
