SAP® Consulting Leverages iRise Visualization

iRise®, the world’s leading visualization solutions company and SAP (NYSE: SAP), the world’s leading supplier of business software, today announced that SAP Consulting in North America will adopt enterprise visualization software from iRise to engage with clients from initial proposal pursuit through solutions delivery. iRise visualizations give business and development stakeholders the ability to fully experience extensions, integrations, complex configuration and custom development initiatives for SAP. By delivering fully working simulations of proposed SAP implementations early in the process, SAP Consulting is expecting to deliver more effectively for clients that need to extend the core capabilities of SAP. Business stakeholders around the globe can communicate and collaborate using the iRise platform, which will save time and money for clients.

“Visualization allows us to accelerate the delivery of business software with low risk,” stated Ross Wainwright, executive vice president for North America Field Services, SAP America, Inc. “Companies of all sizes rely on SAP to run their businesses. Today, customers are even more focused on implementation duration, time-to-value and the overall simplification of SAP’s roadmap. By adopting visualization from iRise, we can provide this simplification and assist our clients in clearly capturing their vision. In turn, we help mitigate risk and implement in the shortest time possible.”

SAP will use iRise to assemble fully functional, high fidelity visualizations of extensions to SAP applications during the proposal pursuit process. By engaging collaboratively with clients early in the sales cycle regarding their requirements, SAP Consulting will speed up the process of consensus around real business needs. Doing so helps to alleviate the expenses associated with building sandboxes or relying exclusively on text-based documentation to understand the full requirements.

“CIOs everywhere are focused on cutting application development cost,” continued Mr. Wainwright. “SAP Consulting will leverage the iRise enterprise visualization platform to help achieve this goal as we apply it throughout the entire implementation lifecycle.”

Once the client engagement is secured, iRise visualization can be leveraged to refine precise delivery requirements for proposed extensions during the ‘blueprint’ phase of the project to lower the overall project cost, speed delivery and improve the quality of the final deliverables iRise visualizations may also be tested directly with business users to improve adoption. Final representations of the extensions can then be easily shared with a global implementation team, reducing confusion about what to build and eliminating costly rework.

“SAP projects are by definition mission-critical,” said Emmet B. Keeffe III, CEO and co-founder of iRise. “With SAP applications, CIOs everywhere now have a proven strategy to meet the needs of their businesses.”

Enterprise Visualization – The Ultimate Change Agent

Enterprise visualization software from iRise gives business and IT leaders a powerful way to “move the needle” and cost-effectively drive change in their organizations. iRise is the only enterprise grade, real-time collaborative software definition platform on the market today. By enabling global organizations to “test drive” and fully experience critical business systems early in the process, iRise is now an essential strategy to modernize their systems, consolidate applications, cut cost, accelerate delivery and leverage global sourcing partnerships without the usual confusion and risk.

With thousands of projects completed successfully, the value of visualization has proven to be enormous for businesses in highly competitive markets:

  • Get to market twice as fast;
  • Eliminate 30% of project cost;
  • Ensure success of global sourcing strategies; and,
  • Dramatically improve customer experience
