Several advantages at once
DB-specific methods: - for DB-homogeneous system copies - no Unicode conversion possible!

Users do not have to deal with individual tables, but can access a database of business entities. This means that they do not select tables, but business objects such as employees or documents. To do this, however, the tools must contain the object dependencies for SAP's complex data model. Even companies that offer the setup of test systems as a service rarely do this for any SAP dataset. In addition, users can define objects themselves to accommodate customizing and in-house developments.
The freeware Scribble Papers is a "note box" in which all kinds of data can be stored. It takes in typed texts as well as graphics and entire documents. The data is then organised in folders and pages.
The process of creating system copies for updates can be broken down into different activities, as shown in Table 1. For each group, the software used for automation is shown, where "UC4" stands for UC4 Automated System Copy and "HP" stands for HP System Copy. All these activity groups are described individually below.
With "Shortcut for SAP Systems", tasks in the area of SAP system copy are simplified and made possible.
Only then can changes be incorporated into the production system.
On cloud: all involved source/target systems on hyperscalers such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services.
