The target system
Hybrid: for example, the source systems on-premises and the target systems on cloud
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.
For a heterogeneous system copy and for homogeneous system copies for which there is no special way for the database used, the source system must be exported. This is done with SAP tools (SUM). The export files are copied to the prepared target system and imported again during the SAP installation with SUM. A relatively comfortable way. But it can be even more comfortable.
Automation of homogeneous SAP system copies
The task of a system copy created for updates is a carefully integrated system that takes on a specific role in an SAP system landscape. That is why customizing the SAP database of the target system differs significantly from customizing the database of the production system. In a system copy-based update, the database of the target system is completely overwritten with the contents of the production system. Therefore, all SAP-specific customization of the target system must be performed after the update with the system copy. The pre- and post-processing is often performed manually while the target system is running. Specific SAP transactions are used to customize the system. Execution can take a long time and is a source of human error. To automate most transactions, UC4 Automated System Copy for SAP can also be used. Before the update, UC4 Automated System Copy takes care of downloading the required content for the SAP customization from the target system and after the update is complete, uploading the content back to the system.
So much information... how can you keep it so that you can find it again when you need it? Scribble Papers is a "note box" that makes this very easy.
Nowadays, companies are required more than ever to react agilely and flexibly to the demands of the global market. It is not unusual for them to have to introduce new processes and projects particularly quickly and securely for the benefit of their own competitiveness. At the same time, their system landscapes are becoming increasingly complex due to mergers and acquisitions and the use of new technologies.
SAP system copy is made much easier by the "Shortcut for SAP Systems" application.
Often one is held up by troubleshooting.
For this, the SAP systems to be copied must allow access at operating system level.
