Multicloud: the systems involved with different hyperscalers
SAP system deployment scenarios
Against the background of constantly changing business processes, the SAP production systems that serve as the basis for these processes must also be continuously adapted and further developed. To ensure that these processes run smoothly at all times, adaptations and further developments must be comprehensively tested in a non-production SAP system using current production data. Only then can changes be incorporated into the production system. However, updating the databases of non-production SAP systems for testing, quality assurance and development with new production data is usually a time-consuming and error-prone process that involves lengthy interruptions to the SAP software lifecycle. By automating and accelerating SAP data, the workload of IT administrators can be significantly reduced and interruptions to the SAP software lifecycle can be kept to a minimum. This white paper presents a solution that helps shorten SAP refresh cycles based on UC4 process automation integration with HP infrastructure software. This solution can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and the length of the SAP software lifecycle. As a result, business processes can be made more agile, risks can be reduced, and the workload of IT administrators can be reduced. Target audience: SAP technical consultants and IT decision makers who are familiar with commonly used procedures for homogeneous SAP system copies.
Companies with backup systems can use these for a client copy and thus save on the computing power of the productive system. However, the burden of copying falls on the SAN. Because the reliability is limited by the misuse of the backup system and the storage network is additionally burdened, users should keep the runtime of this refresh variant as short as possible.
Automation tool reduces time required to create test environments
There are various ways to tame this time robber and reduce run times. For example, through parallelization or the automatic generation of secondary indices.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
The guideline that integrated job logic is preferable to customizing has also proven its worth. The key point here is that each step of a copy job knows the overall context, including the steps that preceded and follow it.
There is a useful product for SAP system copy - "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
And last, but not least, such tools must allow for extensibility or enable customer-specific extensions/requirements, such as integration into a scheduler or consideration of SAP double-stack systems.
TableSplitter, which splits the WHERE-conditions determined by R3ta into packages with one or more subsets.
