Approvals move projects along – but they’re only ever as good as your insight into what you’re approving. Transport Expresso gives contextual information that helps you consciously approve changes, and automates the approval workflow via email or web.
Approvals are flexible and fully configurable so your change process can be precisely modeled, enforced and audited to meet governance and compliance requirements.
Notifications are automatically sent to the relevant individuals as soon as a change requires approval or testing, and provide a direct link to the specific change so it can be instantly actioned.
ITSM and Agile solutions can be fully integrated to ensure that change and delivery processes are streamlined and that actions are synchronized and automatically reflected across all relevant systems.
Make manual migration a thing of the past. Transport Expresso automatically deploys SAP transports (and even non-SAP changes) to test and production systems across both on-premise and cloud based landscapes. This avoids reliance on manual intervention by the Basis team and ensures that only approved changes are imported.
Transport Expresso also gives you the opportunity to automate and orchestrate cross-system deployments and manual activities. It ensures that dependencies across systems are automatically managed and sequenced during the deployment process, providing increased cross-system consistency and speeding up release deployments. Any system and import errors are automatically directed to the appropriate people for investigation.
A central web dashboard within Transport Expresso enables all stakeholders to collaborate across projects, changes, transports, and objects. Business owners gain the ability to log, follow, comment on and action business requirements and change requests throughout the change delivery process all the way through to production.
Teams can keep up to date on what their colleagues are doing - whether they’re in-house or work for a partner - whether they’re sat right next to you or on the other side of the world.
This enables you to improve collaboration across your Development, Testing and Operations teams with visibility of approvals, test results, emergency changes and other key events across your entire SAP landscape in a real-time feed.
Transport Expresso always gets transports in the right order. It automatically manages overtakes, overwrites and dependencies – first in test, later in production.
The automatic sequencing of SAP transports can be based on the release date and time, dependencies and the previous system import order so you can guarantee that your transport imports are safe and don’t cause unwanted side effects or errors.
Arguably the single most desirable function in any critical operation is an 'undo' button. Transport Expresso's patented BackOut function gives you the ability to reverse your transports and restore the system to a pre-import state; your safety net against business downtime.
When you develop at pace there's a risk that an SAP change could take your production system down and stop your business, despite your best testing efforts. The traditional solution? Identify the issue, develop a fix and move it through your SAP landscape as an emergency change. Backout ensures that you don’t have hours of expensive business downtime.
