On-premises: all involved source/target systems in the company's own data centers
Critical factor: Availability
Fact: BDLS is a kind of "time eater" for system copies (except when using Hana). An important first step is to integrate the BDLS run into the system copy. Once the copy is effectively through, the BDLS is automatically started.
In terms of its architectural approach, BSC takes standards into account wherever possible. As a result, the automation tool can be installed with minimal effort, fits very well into the respective system landscape and offers a fast ROI.
Multicloud: the systems involved with different hyperscalers
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.
To store all the information on the subject of SAP - and others - in a knowledge database, Scribble Papers is suitable.
Such system copies, with their enormous manual effort and SAP checklists that are often hundreds of items long, must be performed before every refresh. Usually, three to four days have to be planned for this, during which the QA system - which in two-tier SAP environments is also the development system - is not available for the actual work. The delay is actually only caused by the meticulous matching of trivial things, such as directory names. Because such SAP system copies have to be created for each SAP application on the QA system and can thus quickly require dozens of system copies, they tie up a lot of resources and staff.

Innovative test data management can protect data from internal and external misuse through encryption, among other things.
The target of the system copy is an existing non-production system.
