rollout and implementation


In general or XI perspective, can you explain the difference between rollout and implementation projects.

Some say that implementation is something where you get involve in all phases of SDLC.

Some say it as End to End starting from requirement gathering, In XI perspective i believe there would be only implementation projects when compared to general R/3.

Do Comment on this.

    In my view...

    An implementation would be end-to-end, from requirement gathering to post go-live for a fresh implementation of functionality and applications. In XI terms that would involve creating new interfaces to support the new scenarios.

    A roll-out would be where you are extending existing functionality and scenarios to support more geographic locations, or more business units within the organisation. E.g. you implement SAP HR for the UK based business, then after you have gone live and stabilised the environement you get France-based business to start using it. This may involve extra config and minor developments. Similarly, in XI you will probably have very little to do, unless you need to connect to loacl systems, or develop extra interfaces, or load proper codepages etc.

    Hope this helps?
