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.
