Read this white paper to discover how you can transition to SAP S/4HANA and achieve true enterprise agile delivery — a new standard to deliver changes to your SAP environment. Topics include:

Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process.

So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time.
What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?
