More SAP change less risk
Since deploying Rev-Trac to support an N and N+1 environment, ASB has been able to meet the ever-changing demands of the business cost-effectively and more efficiently.
Automation has enabled ASB to efficiently support an N and N+1 dual development environment to respond quickly to changes in the market and maintain production stability. The go-live experience of SAP applications and enhancements has improved with ASB’s ability to control parallel development during the delivery process more effectively.
ASB has taken advantage of Rev-Trac’s advanced functionality, including the Release Management Workbench, safety checks and cross-application change management to enhance its delivery of SAP change across its N and N+1 environment. The solution’s Overtake and Overwrite Protection System (OOPS), for example, ASB can better manage parallel development, reducing change-related incidents and securing its transports.
Using Rev-Trac, the bank has increased the volume and velocity of SAP change for faster, better and safer applications. At the same time, automating their SAP change management processes has improved production system stability.
Before implementing Rev-Trac, it took ASB more than five hours to identify and fix an overtake/overwrite error. Deploying Rev-Trac has eliminated high-risk manual tasks resulting in an increasingly stable SAP environment. Now, with Rev-Trac, the financial institution receives more than 20 potential dangerous overtake and overwrite error alerts every month.
Automating its SAP change management processes with Rev-Trac has also enabled ASB to:
o to perform weekly routine deployments to production
o reduce time on audit tasks
o reduce production errors
o reduce manual retrofit effort
New era dawns for ASB
While it hasn’t determined its migration approach, ASB plans to migrate to S/4HANA within the next 24-60 months. The bank is still deciding how it will deploy SAP’s next-generation ERP system.
Leveraging Rev-Trac’s automation and enforcement capabilities allows ASB to better control parallel development for more efficient and cost-effective delivery of SAP change across it’s N and N+1 environment.
Through minimizing conflict and improving the volume and velocity of SAP change, the bank can more quickly realize the value of SAP applications, Rev-Trac’s flexibility, ease-of-use, and advance feature set assists ASB in effortlessly managing an upgrade or significant project.
