Conduct solution design workshops and create process-oriented documents to illustrate how intend to run customer business using SAP S/4HANA. Capture, prioritize, and document requirements and gaps in a solution backlog document.

Phase Three: Realize

Through a time-limited, iterative process, incrementally build and test a complete solution environment that is based on the business processes and requirements identified in the explore phase and captured in your backlog document.

Phase Four: Deploy

Prepare SAP S/4HANA for release, move to a production environment, and conduct sustainment activities. At this point, you have everything you need to run your business.

During each phase, the project team produces a prescribed set of deliverables that serve as input for the subsequent steps. The methodology provides examples of key project deliverables, including a procedure description of how to prepare and complete the deliverable. There are accelerators for each phase and work stream, including templates, questionnaires, checklists, guidebooks, and other tools that facilitate the efficient, consistent, and repeatable delivery of implementations and upgrades of customer SAP solution landscape
