Clients can significantly benefit from Infosys' SAP Industry Pre-Configured solutions to accelerate time to value and implementation timelines. They provide our clients a functioning SAP environment that addresses their Industry challenges. We couple our SAP pre-configured environments with Industry Process Repositories that provide a toolkit rich with solution related artifacts that can be leveraged to accelerate client adoption of the pre-configured solution and the Business Transformation program.
By taking the approach of "Why Change" the Pre-Configured Solution vs. a "typical" implementation approach, clients can reduce program delivery time (up to 30%) by starting with an Industry pre-configured solution.
Clients that leverage our pre-configured solutions select the components of the solution that meet their targeted end state. The "delta" between the targeted end state and the pre-configured solution scope are then prototyped, designed, and implemented.

Four Major Phases to Successful SAP Transformations
