Hi Experts,

Please tell me what is the difference between implementation and roll out. And what could be the possible role of an ABAPer in roll out.

Thanks

    Hi Sid,

    Roll out is copying same configuration to other plants.

    e.g. First SAP implementation is done for any one plant of any company, then for other plants we actually dont require to go for full implementation cycle since within saqme company same processes would be followed irrespective of plants. In such a case we for roll outs wherein we copy all configuration(major role will be of BASIS in this part).

    Then there might be some master data change across plants so functional guys will be taking care that if required.

    I dont think there is major ABAP role in any rollout as all developements are transported to the new plant. only in case of a plant specific new requirement comes then ABAP will come into picture.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Dear Sid,

    1. Implementation

    Customer wants to install SAP/Include different modules of SAP viz. MM/SD/FI/CO/PP etc. This is implementation project. Here one needs to integrate several modules, migrate data from Legacy system to SAP system. Need to prepare interfaces/RFC's to interact with 3rd party systems.

    2. Support

    Customer has already installed SAP & wants to give the work of maintaining those systems. This is support project

    3. Upgrade

    Customer has SAP Version 4.6b and wants to update his version i.e. wants to go to Version 4.7. This is upgrade project

    4. Rollouts

    Customer has upgraded his version & wants to rollout country specific changes.

    This is rollout project

    Example for a Global Rollout with a Template

    3. Upgradation - Already sap implemented with older version

    and they are upgrading to newer version.

    4. Roll out - Sap implemented in one plant some time back

    New plant started .So the customer want sap to be implemented in new plant

    also.
