Scope of the SAP system copy
Challenges with SAP system copies
System copy of a Unicode system: Source and target system are Unicode systems. The same procedures can be used for the copy, as with the copy of non-Unicode systems.
Without interrupting operations, we copy your systems using established methods and products. We guarantee consistent quality and reliable reproducibility through standardized processes and a high degree of automation. Due to the SAP system copy, the test and development systems are up to date and tests can be performed reliably and trustworthily on the non-production systems.
Pre- and post-processing
For a long time, manual procedures dominated, supported by SAP (guidelines), in particular by predefined procedures and a large number of checklists. In many places, this was supplemented by scripts created in-house, which, however, only automated partial tasks/processes of an SAP system copy.
Unicode conversion: A Unicode target system is built from a non-Unicode source system. Unicode conversion can only be performed using procedures based on R3load.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems" you can sustainably relieve your administrators of time-consuming routine activities of an SAP system copy.
Innovative test data management can protect data from internal and external misuse through encryption, among other things.
This also restricted the availability of the productive system, which is hardly tolerable for companies that operate internationally and in different time zones.
