Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. Thatís 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 completeóand 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 youíve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. Youíre 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?
It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.
