Key solution steps
Provide your QA, test and training systems with current production data at the push of a button. Including all preparatory and finishing work - Without interfering with or changing your SAP environment - Without time-consuming pre-planning - With minimum lead time - With consistent copy quality.
To build a target system that can be used for testing, development and training purposes, there are two different approaches: Users can reinstall an SAP system and import all transports and support packages that have also made it into the production system to date. However, when their number reaches the hundreds and thousands, the effort becomes disproportionately high. In addition, the data still has to be imported from the production system, for example via a client copy.
Purpose of the SAP system copy
Over 30 productive systems at more than 9 customers successfully copied using IMIG. For the Unicode conversion of a 4.5 TB system (2.7 TB data) a downtime of 16 hours was achieved (including the follow-up work such as reconfiguration, updating DB statistics, generating reports, creating backups, testing the system).
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
Especially in complex environments, SAP system copies regularly represent a critical challenge in terms of time and expertise and thus become a real cost factor in the long run. This is because system copies must be scheduled at an early stage, are complex, time-consuming and resource-intensive, require specific knowledge, tie up important employee capacities due to the large number of manual interventions, and are error-prone.
SAP system copy can be done easier and faster with "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
This often leads to special challenges due to a lack of resources or capacities.
This is referred to as a "heterogeneous SAP system copy".
