  1. What are rapid-deployment solutions?

    Rapid-deployment solutions describe best business practices and best implementation practices for a wide range of SAP software. They are published as packages with assets covering solution design and configuration and, if applicable, configuration templates that you can use in your system.

    You can use rapid-deployment solutions to do the following:

    • Identify best practices and the right software for new solutions
    • Develop skills and experience faster
    • Gain fast user acceptance and adoption of new solutions
    • Get business benefits and IT capabilities from innovations
    • Reduce cost and complexity in IT landscapes

    Rapid-deployment solutions are available for cloud and on-premise deployments. For select rapid-deployment solutions, you can also download an appliance with the software already installed and many settings already made.

    In addition, partners and SAP offer consulting services that are tailored to the rapid-deployment solutions and are designed to accelerate time-to-value and provide predictable results.

    Packages typically include assets such as:

    • Fact sheets
    • Simulations
