Shutting Down the Target System
One example: In an SAP environment, a system copy must be performed for various reasons - until now manually. Such a copy is always required when the QA system of a multi-level SAP architecture has to be brought up to the status of the current production system: Be it for testing new applications or during a release upgrade, for maintenance purposes or for updating the quality assurance and test system. In principle, the task proves to be simple: All files belonging to the clean configuration and implementation of the SAP environment must be transferred from the productive systems to the quality assurance system in the correct order and in the correct directories.
The different types of SAP environments must meet different requirements. Training courses, for example, can only be held expediently if the working conditions largely correspond to those on the production system. Companies can simulate real-life situations for testing purposes on the basis of consistent and realistic data alone. Users should also test their own developments and modifications with consistent data that is close to production. A test environment that is as identical as possible to the production system is suitable for testing patches and release upgrades. In development and training systems in particular, it is fundamentally important to anonymize sensitive data in order to comply with data protection rules.
Efficient options for SAP system copies
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.
The professional handling of test data is also important with regard to applicable data protection and compliance guidelines. Global companies in particular are required to take measures to protect sensitive data. They need to ensure compliance and reduce risks from data breaches, even in non-productive environments. Innovative test data management can protect data from internal and external misuse through encryption, among other things. Sensitive personal data is secured in accordance with current data protection requirements, while at the same time high test quality is achieved through realistic data.
