Technical system copy for the upgrade
Internationally active companies that operate systems with several terabytes of data and hundreds of users in different time zones depend on high system availability. If necessary, the system is copied incrementally, table by table, on weekends and at night. Complete shutdown of the production system is best avoided altogether.
As mentioned above, an SAP system copy created for updates is a special use case of homogeneous system copy. Here, a production system represents the source and a non-production system with a specific long-term task in the SAP system landscape represents the target. The most common update scenario involves updating a QA system in the SAP transport system.
Consideration of additional QA clients
Nowadays, companies are required more than ever to react agilely and flexibly to the demands of the global market. It is not unusual for them to have to introduce new processes and projects particularly quickly and securely for the benefit of their own competitiveness. At the same time, their system landscapes are becoming increasingly complex due to mergers and acquisitions and the use of new technologies.
