The classic approach to software implementations (the so-called waterfall method) can have a negative impact on project success due to its inflexibility. The missing, but absolutely necessary, transparency during the project realization phase can endanger the success of the implementation. Pure agile methods are also not recommended for complex projects, if costs and time have to be kept fixed, but at the same time quick adjustments have to be made.
contrimo’s greatest goal is to get your company to its goal faster with every new implementation, solution extension or landscape transformation. To achieve this we use SAP Activate, a standardized, hybrid framework that combines the strengths of both development methodologies to help our customers implement the latest SAP solutions according to their needs, quickly, cost-effectively and successfully.
SAP Activate offers your company a transparent process with a structured procedure. The foundation of SAP Activate consists of greater customer involvement in the individual project phases and a clear focus on standardization.
In contrast to waterfall projects, the usually time-consuming blue-print phase is no longer necessary with SAP Activate, which saves the company time and money. In addition, customers are already intensively involved during the project and can get to know the new solution (from the prototype through the respective interim releases to the fully developed product) in test environments, test it and continuously adapt it according to their requirements.
