Maintaining and enhancing SAP enterprise applications is costly. Some costs are known such as time and resources to do the work. There are also a variety of hidden or uncalculated costs that can quickly spiral out of control. Managing transport lists and migration activities, change controls control board meeting time, process approval efforts, governance and policing, documentation, reapplication tasks and production system issues. All, if overlooked, can derail the development, enhancement and maintenance of SAP applications.
By automating your SAP change management processes and adopting tightly controlled automation and uniform governance to your N and N+1 environment you can deliver more change, more frequently with less risk. Meaning you can respond quickly to changes in the market, eliminate conflicts between transport and maintain production stability. The results; your SAP IT team is now free to spend more time on innovation and less on fixing problems resulting from incorrect transports being migrated to production.
To massively improve your SAP change management outcomes, automation is critical. Rev-Trac automates the entire SAP change management process, enabling an end-to-end SAP DevOps toolchain.
