ASAP methodology (Accelerated Implementation Program)

Accelerated SAP methodology is a proven, repeatable and successful approach to implementing SAP solutions across industries and customer environments. It provides content, tools, and expertise from numerous implementations. The “SAP Business One Accelerated Implementation Program” has been developed specifically to support the implementation of SAP Business One in small and midsize enterprises. This implementation guide will use the ASAP framework as a guideline for SAP Business One implementations and apply ASAP concepts and information were beneficial.

ASAP methodology consists of following phase

  • Project Preparation: During this phase, the team prepares and conducts a project kick-off meeting and goes through initial planning and preparation for the SAP Business One implementation.
  • Business Blueprint: During this phase, a requirements workshop is conducted with various key stakeholders to define project objectives, scope, and schedule. In addition, the relevant business process scenarios are defined. In order to document the results gathered during the workshops, the Business Blueprint is created.
  • Project Realization: The purpose of this phase is to implement all business process requirements based on the Business Blueprint. Other key focal areas of this phase are conducting integration tests and drawing up end user documentation.
  • Final Preparation: The purpose of this phase is to complete final preparation (including user and administrator training, system management and cutover activities) to finalize go-live readiness.
  • Go-Live and Support: The purpose of this phase is to move from a project-oriented, pre-production environment to live production operation. The most important elements include setting up production support, monitoring system transactions, and optimizing overall system performance.
