Validation of technical design of on-premise, cloud and hybrid environments
Comprehensive service portfolio with clearly calculable results
All backbone connections to SAP will be switched from January 1, 2020, as SAP has announced on its support page. Afterwards, communication between ABAP System and SAP will only take place via secure HTTPS connections, for which a dedicated user must also be requested in the Support Portal. In all ABAP systems, SAP hints can no longer be obtained via SNOTE via the old OSS RFC connection. The shipment of Early Watch Alerts to SAP is also affected by this change. Here the shipping route must also be changed to the new HTTPS standard. There is also a great need for action for all SAP customers without a current SAP Solution Manager. In the future, SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS08 (SPS07 only with additional information) will be required here. For all older releases, communication with SAP will also be impossible from January 2020. This primarily affects the data in the Maintenance Planner, which are then no longer synchronised. This then indirectly affects all future maintenance projects where the use of the Maintenance Planner is indispensable. Especially with regard to upcoming S/4 HANA migrations, this represents a risk to be avoided.

Our service makes the difference
The strategic IT plan of a comprehensive international SAP rollout including the introduction of SAP EWM, ERP and HR in China in 2018 has been defined. The defined goal was to find support with Application Management, Services and Support (AMS), so that the IT core team of Schmersal can focus on the project work. External experts should be found to support Schmersal-IT in SAP support and to release the capacities needed for the rollouts.
For training in the rollout phase, the above documents and records proved very helpful. The tool has supported our SAP instructors in user training. The automatic documentation in Word serves as a training manual. Recorded processes are particularly useful for SAP transactions, because no one can remember all the transaction steps of a main process. All areas of work are directly accessible via a table of contents. To answer questions from SAP users not only orally but also in the form of screen recordings, key users and support staff can quickly "film" and publish the processes in question. The user can view both his input and the results in the Personal Navigator. This means that the errors are almost completely eliminated. There are also other offers on the market, but this tool has proven itself in practical use.
Some missing SAP support functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
Not to lose track here can often be very difficult especially small teams.
For SAP S4/HANA Cloud applications, we have been offering build-in support since this year's SAPPHIRE and are now expanding the range of services.
A note box in which data of all kinds can be quickly filed and retrieved. This is what Scribble Papers promises. At first, the program looks very spartan. But once a small structure is in place, you realise the great flexibility of this little helper.
