SAP announced its SAP® Model Company services, a prepackaged, ready-to-use, end-to-end reference solution customized to meet specific line-of-business and industry needs. Based on the broad business process expertise SAP has acquired as a result of decades of project experience, these new services provide a framework that will help customers simplify, accelerate and enable digital transformation.
Each SAP Model Company service is customized to a specific industry or line of business. The model company embraces the digital business framework methodology, industry reference architecture and the SAP Activate innovation adoption framework. It includes building blocks such as:
- Preconfigured solutions: All the required applications, customizing settings and sample data to get started immediately whether operating in the cloud or on premise
- Business content: End-to-end process models, which incorporate the experience and knowledge SAP has acquired relevant to the industry or line of business
- Accelerators: Configuration and how-to guides, test and demo scripts and implementation tools
- Services: Hand-over and enablement workshops to jump-start discovery, preparation, exploration and realization
With this announcement, SAP has deployed model company services for 10 lines of business and industries including: core retail and oil&gas, as well as utilities, connected manufacturing, R&D, engineering and sustainability. SAP will be working with its customers to deploy additional industries later this year.
SAP Model Company services can be combined with SAP Value Assurance service packages. As a result, customers further minimize risks during their digital transformation and can speed time to value during early prototyping, detailed solution design, fit-gap analysis and implementation.
