What is SAP Activate? 

SAP Activate comprises multiple core elements to deploy and sustain effective software that powers your business to run at its best. Unlike a traditional approach in which IT leads a resource-intensive, “big-bang” implementation over multi-year cycles, Innovation as a Service enables businesses to self-service their solutions more frequently for fast, business-driven setup.

Pre-configured Business Processes Delivered Ready to Run

Pre-configured processes are valuable both to jump-start your initial deployment, and to provide the foundation for frequent innovation upgrades and extensions as your business evolves. The pre-delivered business processes are chosen based on your business needs during a Fit-to-Standard assessment. Bring best practices to core business processes for improved efficiencies, with solutions tailored to your company.

Ready-to-run business processes also span adjacent cloud solutions such as SAP SuccessFactors, SAP Financial Services Network, SAP Ariba, and others. By delivering high-value scenarios quickly, your business sees benefits faster while minimizing disruption to operations 

Clear Solution for Adoption

Innovation as a Service gives the project teams deploying and extending SAP solutions structured and solution-specific guidance in a standardized environment. The approach is simple, with an easy-to-use interface providing users access to the right information at the right time. Accelerators help project teams move forward quickly without interruption. SAP Activate provides accelerators for key steps along the journey. These accelerators include assets, content, and tools that support your project team members.

They enable the

  • planning and execution of Fit-to-Standard workshops
  • assist your team during configuration and extending the solution
  • facilitate test automation to confirm everything works properly before bringing the functionality to a production environment

Rather than IT leading a long, “big-bang” approach to implementation, SAP Activate enables business users to self-service their configuration and take an iterative approach to adopt new capabilities. This leads to a faster setup of higher-quality solutions. 

Apps for Adoption and Extensibility

With built-in flexibility delivered as self-service configuration options, SAP Activate enables intuitive and flexible configurations suited to your needs. And SAP Activate goes far beyond configuration tools, enabling you to use apps for a range of business needs.

To extend the solution, SAP Activate’s in-project extensibility includes both in-app and side-by-side extensibility. This extends the standard capabilities of the product to customize the solution to your needs, with the option to build additional capabilities beyond the core service offering.
