What type of activities we perform in IMPLEMENTATION project? Will we start from modeling stage or interact with R/3?
Responsibilities of an implementation project
For ex, Lets say If its a fresh implementation of BI or for that matter you are implementing SAP.
First and foremost will be your requirements gathering from the client. Depending upon the requirements you will creat a business blueprint of the project which is the entire process from the start to the end of an implementation.
After the blue print phase sign off we start off with the realization phase where the actual development happens. In our example after installing the necessary softwares, patches for BI we need to discuss with the end users who are going to use the system for inputs like how they want a report to look like and what are the Key Performance Indicators(KPI) for the reports etc., basically its a question and answer session with the business users.
After collecting those informations the development happens in the development servers.
After the development comes to an end the same objects are tested in quality servers for any bugs, errors etc., When all the tests are done we move all the objects to the production environment and test it again whether everything works fine.
The Go-Live of the project happens where the actually postings happen from the users and reports are generated based on those inputs which will be available as an analytical report for the management to take decisions.
The responsibilites vary depending on the requirement. Initially the business analyst will interact with the end users/managers etc., then on the requirements the software consultants do the development, testers do the testing and finally the go-live happens.

BW Project Implementation and Rollout
Global IDs uses a modified version of the ASAP methodology to ensure a robust BW environment is implemented, tested, and delivered. The project milestones include the following:
*Phase 1: Upgrade Project Preparation -*
The purpose of this phase is to provide initial planning and preparation for your R/3 upgrade project. Although each upgrade project has unique objectives, scope and priorities, the steps in Phase 1 help identify and plan the primary topics that must be considered.
*Phase 2: Business Blueprint -*
The purpose of this phase is to establish a common understanding in your company about how the new R/3 release will handle your current business processes after the R/3 upgrade.
*Phase 3: Realization of DEV and QAS -*
The purpose of this phase is to perform the upgrade
of all non-production R/3 Systems, which normally include development (DEV)
and quality assurance
*Phase 4: Realization of Production -*
The purpose of this phase is to complete the final preparation for the upgrade of the production R/3 System, and end user training, if necessary. On the successful completion of this phase, you are ready to run your business in your upgraded production R/3 System.
*Phase 5: Go Live and Support -*
The purpose of this phase is the transition from your previous R/3 System to a newly upgraded and improved R/3 System. Be aware that you must set up an ongoing support organization to service your R/3 users, both during the first few days of your upgraded production operations, and on an ongoing basis.
