There are several SAP Transport scenarios for managing SAP HANA content changes, depending on which SAP HANA content changed. This whitepaper describes the methods which can be used to transport both SAP HANA ABAP and native SAP HANA non-ABAP content using Rev-Trac SAP change control automation software.
This whitepaper provides a high-level overview of a range of change control challenges specific to N and N+1 landscapes and offers a safe and flexible approach to managing change using Rev-Trac SAP change control automation software.
This whitepaper highlights common change control challenges experienced by SAP change control teams, discusses considerations in meeting this need for closely managed change and introduces Rev-Trac as an effective solution for meeting and managing these challenges.
How Two Leading Companies Integrated Rev-Trac SAP Change Control Automation Software with ServiceNow® and BMC Remedy® to Eliminate Unnecessary Costs and Reduce Errors
It can be difficult to integrate third-party ALM solutions from scratch, but ready-to-configure integrations such as those available with Rev-Trac SAP change control automation software will make integrations much less problematic. This whitepaper shows how two multinational companies configured Rev-Trac to integrate key third-party IT service management products BMC Remedy® and ServiceNow® ITSM, gaining improved infrastructure response to their evolving business needs.
Calculating economic benefits (ROI) based on hard dollars and soft dollars
Automation, enforceability, ease of configuration and use, and cost/time to implement can make or break an SAP change control automation project. But if you project realistic hard and soft ROI, you can use limited budget more effectively and everyone from PMO to CEO will save wasted time and effort. In this whitepaper, we will explore the tangible gains (ROI) of Rev-Trac SAP change control automation software.
This whitepaper describes how to accurately forecast the period and cost of consulting services to support a Rev-Trac change control implementation. It describes how to locate an SAP-using organization’s IT change control requirements on a complexity scale ranging from the straightforward to the highly complex to predict implementation time and cost.
With insights from Joe Schenk, founder of QA Edge and Simon Packwood, Director of IT Audit at Textron
The goal of audits is to detect and correct risks to proper governance. The key to exception-free audits is to maintain complete records and eliminate possible threats to record integrity. When auditors see you’ve done that, audits become just another part of the normal IT process. This whitepaper shows how to achieve that goal.
Are you ready to open your eyes to the hidden costs of continuing with manual SAP change control?
This whitepaper looks at areas where the uncalculated costs of the status quo could be lurking within your manual SAP change control process and how automation gives you the potential to eliminate problems that cost you significantly in hard dollars.
On large SAP systems, tight integration between components is crucial. The challenge is to leverage, not lose, existing third-party software investments and avoid disrupting user-accepted business processes and procedures. Change Control is emerging as an ideal integration facilitator. See how ready-to-use Rev-Trac integrations will help leverage such key applications as service desks, code inspection, ALM analysis, testing and quality assurance tools.
Selecting an SAP Change Control and Automation Solution: Getting the Big Picture, Setting Requirements and Gaining User Buy-in
Selecting key component ALM tools in systems running SAP software, as in any Enterprise IT environment, requires care. This whitepaper offers a realistic best-practice approach to evaluating possible SAP change control solutions, with an eye toward maximizing stakeholder buy-in and minimizing actual Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) over the operating life of a proposed solution.
When SAP change release strategies fail to meet business-side expectations, organizations can lose confidence in the “large project” approach. This whitepaper discusses the considerations required when facilitating a move towards a more agile, flexible ‘continuous delivery’ strategy by using a multi-lane approach to managing SAP changes.
As IT systems grow, they generate ever larger volumes of change requests. New applications and modules, major concurrent or parallel projects and stacks for non-ABAP software all add complexity. This paper shows how the proper N and N+1 change control strategy uses independent development and testing streams to make such systems more manageable.
Many large organizations today need more closely managed and coordinated IT change release strategies than traditional approaches permit. A more closely coordinated approach can ease pressure on existing resources, reduce problems and ensure production stability across one or many IT landscapes. This whitepaper describes various technical change release strategies and their use.
