Instead of incremental project progress, which proceeds from defining the strategy to creating a blueprint to implementation as in the waterfall model, our initial release method takes a holistic approach and parallelizes the various work packages.
The KPS initial release method does not involve the time-consuming production of blueprints in paper form. Instead, the implementation starts with an executable model that makes SAP Concur's functionality tangible to all stakeholders early on.
Conserving the company's recources
The integrative approach with only one implementation partner bundles the requirements from the very beginning, coordinates the expectations of business and IT, prevents misunderstandings and loss of information, and conserves the company's resources by significantly shortening the project duration.
Solution with a high degree of maturity
Based on the initial release, the implementation is focused on quickly providing a first functional SAP Concur version. In addition to learning success, this also promotes employee acceptance of the new technology. Starting the project, a solution with a high degree of maturity is already available as a vivid basis for development.
Success right from the start
The solution features a high degree of maturity right from the start and the project success does not depend too much on the input and committed participation of the business departments. The danger of the as-is state becoming entrenched on the new platform is adverted.
Reduced risk of quality delays
With the initial release method, the documentation precedes the development and is thus available from the beginning. The risk of quality defects, delays and budget overruns is reduced.
The preconfigured system is immediately ready for use in the company: Integrated process chains that map all T&E scenarios are available right from the start. We clarify supplementary, environment-specific requirements together with our customers in compact and focused workshops.
Individual features are implemented through successive roll-ins into the operational platform:
