SAP Activate is the new software implementation methodology from SAP
ASAP vs SAP Activate
SAP Activate methodology will supersede ASAP methodology for implementation. SAP will continue to provide access to the last version of ASAP 8 methodology in SAP Service Marketplace for project teams that are using it today.
What is SAP Activate methodology?
SAP Activate methodology is the new software implementation methodology that builds on proven approaches and our experience to offer a consistent, agile method for any deployment type – cloud, on premise, hybrid, or mobile. It offers support for initial implementation and continuous innovation with SAP S/4HANA. The implementation best practices walk project teams through the planning, building, and deployment of their SAP solution. SAP Activate methodology caters to customer-specific configuration and extensions requirements to reflect a customer’s own business practices while remaining extremely scalable – nimble enough for smaller engage-ments and more robust for larger projects
SAP Activate is the innovation adoption framework that expedites SAP S/4HANA implementations throughout the customer lifecycle. It offers ready-to-run digitized business and technology processes, guided configuration, and next-generation methodology.
Why is SAP launching a new delivery framework?
Over time, SAP has acquired a number of companies and released several new solutions. When the ASAP methodology was developed, there were no cloud solutions. The SAP Activate innovation adoption framework applies a single methodology that supports any deployment mode across all cloud and on-premise solutions. With our partner ecosystem in mind, we’ve designed it to be extensible. It is the one tool you need for starting your innovation and implementation journey to the SAP S/4HANA suite.

•Starts with SAP Best Practices packages for any implementation and is customized for use with SAP S/4HANA
