SAP Best Practices covers the fundamentals of integration and migration for SAP S/4HANA and includes your own reference solution in the cloud. You also get information on extensibility that details how to enhance SAP software for your own needs and integrate functionality with other cloud solutions. SAP Best Practices enables you can to take advantage of all the power and potential available with SAP S/4HANA but tailored to your circumstances and business needs.
Guided Configuration provides a set of tools to support the implementation of SAP Best Practices. In S/4HANA cloud editions, Guided configuration provides assistance not only throughout the implementation project, but also beyond – while running the solution in a production environment. Guided configuration lets you apply updates and changes to your configuration, so your solution is always up to date – without disruption. Guided configuration is available for SAP S/4HANA cloud deployments.
SAP Activate methodology is a modular and agile framework for implementation or migration to SAP S/4HANA. It builds on its predecessors: ASAP? methodology and SAP Launch methodology. You can use the methodology on your own, with SAP directly, or with an SAP partner. And because the methodology supports the use of add-ons and extensions developed by SAP partners, you get a coherent, integrated experience even if you are customizing SAP S/4HANA for specific business processes.
