SAP Activate methodology JAM space - we are open, come in

July 9, 2015 Jan Musil

In my previous post I indicated that we will soon be opening up the SAP Activate methodology site for users from outside of SAP.

Today I'm pleased to share more details about how you can request access to the SAP Activate methodology JAM site. It initially provides two flavors of the SAP Activate methodology -- 'SAP Activate for SAP S/4HANA Cloud Project Services Edition' and 'SAP Activate for on-premise (and managed cloud) implementation' which is the successor to ASAP 8 methodology.


How to request access

The SAP Activate methodology JAM site is a collaborative space where you can not only access the methodology content, but also collaborate with SAP subject matter experts and other like-minded users. To request access you will need to direct message your e-mail address to @SAPActivate Twitter account.

We are using direct messages in order to keep your e-mail address hidden from the internet traffic. Please do not post your e-mails in the comments to this blog post. In case you need more information about how to send direct message to us we recommend you to review this post - How to send a direct message on Twitter.


What will you find in the SAP Activate methodology JAM

I will focus on the key structure elements of the space we have setup for sharing the methodology and providing space to collaborate. As you start using the JAM space we may add new elements depending on the user feedback.

Methodology content

The methodology content is structured into three levels of detail as follows.

  • Overview page which is also the space default page - provides links to key assets, latest updated materials and most recent discussions
  • Phase tabs - each methodology phase has dedicated tab with a list of key deliverables per phase and description of the phase objectives and key steps.
  • Deliverable pages - each deliverable page provides the purpose, definition and process for the deliverable. Most deliverable pages also provide links to documents, templates and examples that the project team can use as project accelerators.


Discussion forums

The discussion forums provide space for users to ask questions, share their thoughts about the content and to provide feedback to the team maintaining the SAP Activate methodology.


Social Collaboration

One of the biggest benefits of sharing the methodology content in the SAP JAM is that the space provides opportunity for collaboration between users. You can leave comments on any element in the site. Let us know how the document or guidance worked for you. You can expect response from the SAP subject matter experts, moderators and potentially from other users. We encourage you to use this platform to let us know what you think. Share how the SAP Activate methodology works for you. We will use this feedback to fine tune the methodology content over time.


We are all looking forward to welcoming you all into the SAP Activate methodology JAM. Let us know your thoughts.
