On-premises: all involved source/target systems in the company's own data centers
Before shutting down the target system
The demands on your business are constantly changing. For this reason, there is also a need to adapt processes and functionalities. This cannot be done directly in the production system, but must first be extensively tested, which in turn requires data that is as realistic as possible. The SAP system copies required for this are quite time-consuming and complex, but also offer very great automation potential. We support you in the execution of SAP system copies and, within the framework of our partnership with Libelle, we can also set up automation mechanisms for you if you have the need for regular system copies. We are also happy to support you with any data anonymization that may become necessary after such a copy.
Individual steps know exactly where they have to restart the actual copy run in the event of an error. In general, this means that error situations can be handled as needed and with pinpoint accuracy.
SAP system startup and shutdown, including virtual hosts
Depends on the extent of splitting and the degree of parallelization. When importing, the limiting factor is often the index structure.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
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.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" supplement missing functions in the area of SAP system copy.
The task of a system copy created for updates is a carefully integrated system that takes on a specific role in an SAP system landscape.
These are standard procedures, but they can be disproportionately expensive for productive data sets of several terabytes.
