INSIGHT CUBES Methodology is a Highly practical merger between Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and Accelerated SAP (ASAP).

Implementation Phases

The purpose of this phase is to provide initial planning and preparation for your SAP project. This phase sets forth the project methodology, infrastructure, governance, and plan for the SAP project. As an output of the Initiation Phase, we will agree upon and communicate the detailed Blue Print and the project plan.

Blueprint: The Blueprint will include a detailed documentation demonstrating our thorough understanding of your current solution (As-Is), the planned Solution (To-Be) and Gap (the bridge).

Project Plan: The Project Plan is will include the detailed list of Phases/Streams (Activity groups), Activities, buffers, milestones, Baseline and Estimated Work, Duration, calendar and Schedule, Sequences, Resource distribution, Deliverables, and Deliverable details.

Key Activities

Status Reports

Accelerated SAP (ASAP) methodology is applicable with starter kits, such as the IFRS Starter Kit, but for tailored solutions, this jump from Blueprinting to Realization might create hasty and low quality work; since the same solution can be developed in multiple ways. This is increasingly evident in tailored SAP solutions with work flows and customized user experience.

During the conceptualization phase, we list the multiple solutions that can effectively address the Business Goals and Objectives, in accordance to the Blue Print, and then we select the most efficient and desirable solution. A prototype is developed, in collaboration with our client team, ensuring they can interact with the system, and not just rely on a blueprint.

The key factor of this phase is the thorough and detailed implementation of the solution. The objects that are created are the objects that were defined as component of the evaluation performed in blueprint and the selected design through the Conceptualization Phase. Implementation is thus the gradual result of initiation and conceptualization. The Implementation of the most efficient and “desirable” solution will commence with confidence.

Key Activities

Build Model and Dimension Architecture and details
Build Script logic, MDX, rules, calculations and methods
Develop transformation and Conversion
Develop BPF, Work-spaces and Interfaces
Establish User Roles and Authorization Concept
Final Configuration and Confirmation

Key Deliverables

Development Environment
Quality Assurance Environment
Simulation Environment
Unit and Integration Test Results
Roles and Task Profiles
Updated Project Plan and status reports

The main objective of this phase is the thorough and detailed implementation of the solution. Just like in the previous phase it is to ensure the implementation of the most efficient and “desirable” solution hence commencing with confidence, but with much more detailed outcomes

This phase is to move from a Quality environment to live production operation. We will set up a support organization for end users, not just for the first critical days of production operations, but also to provide long term support. Despite engaging in a Simulation of the solution, during this phase, end users usually have many questions. There must be a solid end user support organization easily accessible to all end users.

The Go-Live and Support phase is also used to monitor system data loads and to optimize overall system performance. Finally, the completed project is closed.

Key Activities

Successful Closure of User Acceptance testing log
Transport from Quality to Production
Initiation of Hyper Care

Key Deliverables

Backup copies of Development and Quality Environment.
The Live Environment will be activated and all the end users will engage in their activities.
