Learn about the new SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution. See how it is delivered and implemented, its technical prerequisites, and the project management approach to take for it.
Key Concept

A rapid-deployment package includes pre-configured software, content in the form of SAP best practices, predefined templates and tools, educational material, and implementation services.

Many IT implementation projects tend to increase in scope, time, and cost during project implementation. SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution was designed as one answer to these kinds of problems. The SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution concept offers a predefined scope, a set timeline for the project management (including all required tasks), and a fixed price. For example, SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution can be implemented onsite in a company in as little as nine weeks — regardless of the size of the company. This is possible because unlike other, individual projects, less time is spent discussing the scope and content of the implementation project.

In SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution project implementations, the scope and content is already set, and the user’s requirements are then evaluated in the context of this scope. Any gaps that are found can be filled by adding more functionality to the SAP E-Recruiting rapid-deployment solution project via a change request. Therefore, the project scope, timeline, effort, and required project time stay the same regardless of the size of the company undertaking the implementation of the rapid-deployment solution itself. Additional time and effort is only required if additional functionality is added to the project scope via a change request.
