Delivering change to your SAP system can be a huge headache, and doing it fast introduces levels of risk and complexity that are difficult to manage using manual processes. Release automation is the driver of faster delivery. The Transport Expresso module within ActiveControl replaces slow, opaque, error-prone manual processes with predictable, low-risk automated methods, enabling more agile, responsive development and test workflows that don’t break production.
Control and quality
Every change carries a potential risk to your SAP production system. That means you need to implement appropriate checks and quality controls at the right time during the change and release process. ActiveControl’s ShiftLeft module features more than fifty out-of-the-box analyzers that automatically enforce risk, quality, impact and dependency checks to ensure that production systems remain safe whatever the speed and volume of change.
ActiveControl delivers detailed insight into the performance of SAP development and delivery teams thanks to its DevAnalytics module. DevAnalytics supplies the data you need to take the guesswork out of SAP development and delivery measurement. A comprehensive set of meaningful performance metrics and KPIs provides evidence that can be used to support data-driven business decisions, helping to drive continuous improvement and make your SAP systems and teams more effective and efficient.
The management of multiple SAP development systems is difficult. Parallel-track development can get incredibly complicated, especially in major transformations like Cloud adoption and S/4HANA. That’s where DevMax, an optional ActiveControl module, comes in. DevMax is a highly configurable solution that dynamically manages change across different systems without object locking. Cross-system merges become highly automated to accelerate cut-overs, lower resource costs and massively reduce downtime caused by re-keying errors.
ActiveControl is available in two variants. The standard version provides everything that you need to adopt DevOps and Continuous Delivery in an SAP environment with a single development system. ActiveControl Plus offers all the capabilities of the standard version but also includes the DevMax module for management of multi-track development.
