SAP, which stands for Systems, Applications & Products, is a modular software program designed to help manage a company’s business operations. A wide range of modules, such as finance, logistics, and human resources, are available through SAP. The choice of modules largely depends on the needs and specific implementation.
The ASAP methodology is a common choice when implementing SAP. A standardized process, the ASAP methodology is divided into six phases that are implemented one by one in a specific order. The first phase is project preparation, which involves planning and goal-setting work. Once preparation is completed, scope validation occurs to ensure that the implementation will meet the goals of the business. Realization, or the actual implementation of the software, is the third phase, and it is followed by final preparation and training. The go-live support phase ensures a successful rollout of the software, and the operate phase makes any necessary operational changes after going live.
