You’ve made a major investment in Oracle E-Business Suite applications to run your critical enterprise processes. But these processes stretch beyond Oracle E-Business Suite and rely on a mix of custom and packaged applications.
Management of your critical enterprise processes has become a pressing challenge. Too many staff are tied up in managing the process, as well as finding and diagnosing process errors. SLAs are frequently missed, and customers perceive poor quality of service due to the recurring errors and delays, which are now impacting your critical processes, such as financial period end close, invoicing, payroll and materials requirements planning (MRP) processing. You’ve decided it’s time to consider automation.
Automating Oracle E-Business Suite processes end-to-end can eliminate 90% of business process errors. Download this whitepaper to find out how.
Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to complete—and like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities.
So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time.
What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?

Wikibon conducted in-depth interviews with organizations that had achieved Big Data success and high rates of returns. These interviews determined an important generality: that Big Data winners focused on operationalizing and automating their Big Data projects. They used Inline Analytics to drive algorithms that directly connected to and facilitated automatic change in the operational systems-of-record. These algorithms were usually developed and supported by data tables derived using Deep Data Analytics from Big Data Hadoop systems and/or data warehouses. Instead of focusing on enlightening the few with pretty historical graphs, successful players focused on changing the operational systems for everybody and managed the feedback and improvement process from the company as a whole.
