Digital Discovery Assessment

Process Flow and Quick Qualification

The Digital Discovery Assessment (DDA) is used in the sales cycle to assess a customer's requirements and match them with the best SAP S/4HANA Cloud solution to fit their needs. This occurs in the Discover phase of the SAP Activate Methodology.

Access to the Digital Discovery Assessment is restricted to partners or SAP employees who are fully authorized for Sales or Service for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition or SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition.

Detailed Discovery for New Implementations

For a new implementation, the Detailed Discovery is completed to identify the business processes, localizations, known integrations, and additional parameters required for the customer. At the end of the Detailed Discovery, additional requirements related to business processes can be entered, and detailed project and scope-related questions are completed. For example, the target customer go-live date and total expected number of users.

Select each of the highlighted areas below to learn about the information entered into a Detailed Discovery for a new implementation.

Detailed Discovery for System Conversions and the Digital Discovery Assessment Report

For a system conversion, the focus of the Detailed Discovery is on gathering information related to the customer's current solution scope and ensuring all required functionality is addressed with the private cloud solution. Additional details such as the current system release, partner add-on requirements, selected hyperscaler, data sovereignty requirements, and others are gathered during the sales process when preparing for a system conversion.

The completed Discovery Assessment is reviewed by an SAP Brand Guardian to ensure the automated solution proposal is correct, and provide a final confirmation of the solution recommendation. The completed Discovery Assessment can be exported to a PDF report and used to define the project scope when the implementation project begins.
