Our core industries not only need to be highly innovative but must also conform to strict regulatory requirements. To handle this set of demanding challenges, we pursue a risk-based approach for the introduction of innovative technologies based on SAP. Our process-based approach model combines the methods used for implementation with the requirements for validation. As your trusted partner, we deploy our best practice reference processes as the basis for designing your successful digital transformation.
Apart from process optimisation and standardisation, a key aspect of our approach here focuses on harmonising the IT implementation and validation activities (according to GAMP 5). At DHC, we also pride ourselves on efficiency. This means that projects are methodically structured and managed to create reusable results and documentation and – above all – to ensure a high level of knowledge transfer to the customer.
SAP Activate is the current approach model from SAP for the deployment of S/4HANA. Wherever possible and prudent, we co-opt agile methods and tools from this model to optimise our approach. This is done with the necessary duty of care in terms of validation requirements and always by agreement with the respective customer.
The relevant elements from our framework’s individual methods can be grouped into the following project phases:
- Project preparation
- Conceptual design
- Preparation for go-live
- Project closure
All of the phases in our approach model are supported by a SAP Solution Manager instance that has been adapted by DHC to the methods used. The use of SAP Solution Manager guarantees a seamless transition from implementation into the subsequent routine operation of the SAP system.
