Very often in SAP projects are utilized SAP accelerators to achieve goals fast and efficiently. The applicability of these solutions in both SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA are familiar to us. Project methodologies like Activate and ASAP with mix of hybrid models have been used in client projects. Currently the trend of methodology at least on larger programs is to mix waterfall model with agile model e.g. agile model usage is on UX development and the rest with waterfall.
