Some transports contain critical or risky objects. Others might contain changes to objects that should never have been touched at all (certain configuration templates, for example). The trouble is, you don’t know which ones are which without manually checking the contents.
RiskGuard can be configured to flag risky transports and changes during both development and approval and can control subsequent actions based on the level of risk identified. This ensures that the right people always see the things that need their review.
Deep Impact Analysis
When you're developing at pace in a complex environment or working in large development teams, it's almost impossible to keep track of change dependencies. If changes being approved or deployed rely on objects that are contained in other changes or transports, those dependencies will be automatically revealed. This helps to automate the build pipeline which, in Agile and DevOps processes, is critical for the safe and speedy delivery of requirements. It also results in a big reduction in deployment errors, whatever your approach.
Test Impact Radar
A targeted, automated, risk-based test plan for your SAP releases, Test Impact Radar proactively identifies the areas of your SAP system that are impacted by changes, so that testing can be targeted. The affected SAP transactions, programs, test scripts and business processes can be quickly highlighted based on the objects in your release transports.
This impact assessment allows your test teams to understand what needs to be tested and ensures that your business stakeholders are kept in the loop. You get a real-time view of the testing requirements at any point in your SAP development cycle so you don't waste valuable time and effort.
Shift left development quality control: DevEnforcer is an integrated code inspector that makes sure that all code is fully checked during development – a huge time and money saver during the development and test phases. DevEnforcer analyzes the contents of every SAP transport to ensure that every code change is made to the same level of quality. It helps to ensure that:
- Automated unit tests are executed
- Coding standards are adhered to
- Performance issues and security breaches are identified
If you can identify development issues close to go-live, you could identify them early in your development lifecycle instead. That's the philosophy behind ShiftLeft - and it's why we've created 40 additional analyzers and made the analysis framework extensible. ShiftLeft enables important checks to be performed at every step during development, from technical checks like transport releasability or locked import queues, to intelligent comparisons like approval date checks or previous import error checks.
20 years of real-world SAP experience of the most diverse and complex SAP systems have given us the know-how to spot transport issues before they become business problems. ShiftLeft gives you the means to benefit from this know-how at the press of a button.
