The purpose of the Business Blueprint phase is to
outline the current situation as defined in
workshops so you can compile a Business
Blueprint documenting the target state of the
Picture solution being implemented and the resultant
requirements. The conceptual design draw up by
the project team members therefore describes
how your enterprise wants to map its business
processes using SAP and non-SAP systems.

Holistic Approach
Integration from project to solution

“Using the SAP Solution Manager tool is an excellent way of covering the live cycle of a
solution. It enables us to control every step, from the design, to the realization to the IT
operation of the system, and guaranteeing a full tracking and a very effective introduction of
the system. We considered we obtained substantial benefits with this adoption, reducing TCO
and above all we were successful to manage complex projects and edge operations”
Martin Flegenheimer, IT Director, Ferrero Germany
