BluPond implementations have been recognized by external parties for the business value they deliver to customers and the on-time, on-budget delivery of these projects globally. We leverage industry best practices, accelerators, templates, and a global delivery to ensure that implementations are delivered at the lowest total cost of ownership. Business consulting is a key part of all these projects. We help customers improve their business processes, identify to-be processes, map their business requirements to the functionality available in the various ERP packages, and help with final package selection. Effective Change Management ensures that the new project is adopted by the organization. Functional, Performance, and Regression testing are a key component of all these implementations. End user training is an important part and we leverage E-learning to develop training courses to keep costs low.

The SAP rollout concept is important for businesses operating across different geographic locations that have centralized, common operating functions in their SAP systems. A rollout ensures uniform operations as well as a global view of the business. This central view means analytics data is easily available.

The rollout location usually copies about 80% to 85% of the functionality of the reference implementation. The remaining functionality meets local legal requirements and you cannot copy it. You need to plan for the testing of any functionality specific to those rollout locations.

The system-based roadmap is available in SAP Solution Manager’s RMMAIN transaction. The ASAP roadmap phases are:
