Why Organizations are Adopting Agile for S/4HANA transformation

The global IT landscape is changing and so are market demands. Enterprises are constantly trying to keep up with these changes by rethinking their business models and ways of working. Digital Transformation creates agility, which is immensely important for success. S/4HANA is a next-generation business suite designed to simplify business's digital transformation.

Enterprises are adopting Agile for S/4HANA transformation mainly because it solves the problems associated with waterfall and much more:

  • Ensures high product quality - by enabling continuous improvement via iterations
  • Increases customer satisfaction – by allowing feedback-driven work
  • Enables risk management – with rapid iterations and incremental improvements
  • Increases project control – by facilitating collaboration and transparency
  • Enables faster ROI - with quicker time to market and higher productivity

What is Lacking in Traditional Methods

Traditional model

Gaps in Documentation

Clients may face difficulty in outlining all their requirements at the beginning of the project, causing gaps in documentation.

Higher Cost

Traditional methods tend to be costly, and often more than half of the budget is spent on developing features that may not be used or required by the customer.

Lesser Productivity

In the traditional approach, there were vast chances of disconnects between the business (customer) and the engineer.

Lag in Progress

Application of any change, takes the progress back to the very initial stages, requiring a lot of rework. It is a primary reason for the failure of traditional models.

The Agile Solution

Jile provides the framework to streamline processes and drive enterprise-wide agility by overcoming challenges like real-time change management tracking, lack of end-to-end traceability, and dependencies across different tracks. It enables managing multiple portfolios and programs in an iterative way using SCRUM, KANBAN, and SAP Activate methodology.

The Agile Solution

End-to-end traceability across all the phases of transformation - Lines of Business, Work Areas, and ART (Agile Release Train) is achieved using customized reports and dashboards, RAID (Risks, Actions, Issues, Decisions) Log workflow-based approvals, organization change impact, and summary view of the program/portfolio. Jile also facilitates comprehensive testing as a continuous activity into Iterations and Releases.

Jile enables organizations to overcome challenges associated with traditional methods and visualize solutions faster
