CBH GroupCBH Group performs faster data extraction using SystemCopyGT
The CBH Group is Australia’s leading grain co-operative, with operations across the entire value chain from grain storage, handling and transport to marketing, shipping and processing. 95% of the Western Australia grain harvest is received and exported through the CBH Group’s storage and handling system, which is largely regarded to be one of the best in the world.
CHB Group’s ability to quickly and effectively adapt its SAP systems and introduce new projects is critical for the maintained growth of the company. But the IT teams were facing increasing pressure around managing system changes. Using SAP TDMS, it was still taking at least 3 weeks to build a new landscape – including 3-4 days for each system – and the IT teams were struggling to keep up with the demand for change.
Faced with delivering 15 system refreshes, in partnership with its outsourcing partner, and a large new landscape project in just 2 months, CBH had to find an alternative solution to TDMS that would help them to take time out of the slow running BDLS process so the SAP refreshes and new landscape projects could be delivered much faster.
The company also needed an automation tool to streamline its SAP change and release management process for safe SAP development.

CBH uses System CopyGT – a simple add-on for SAP that enables full SAP system copies to be run in a fraction of the time. Even with a vast SAP environment, it was up and running within 2 days – with a drastically reduced BDLS runtime. System CopyGT has accelerated BDLS task completion from an average of 20 hours to just 39 minutes enabling the company to deliver a complete SAP system refresh in a single day.
Testing teams now have fast access to near production-like data which allows for both negative and positive testing, transforming business confidence. With System CopyGT in place, the ICT team has been able to develop an agreed refresh schedule with the business, completing projects faster and becoming more responsive to new requirements. Valuable ICT resources can now be refocused on strategic activities including the continued automation of the SAP platform.
CBH also uses ActiveControl to automate its SAP processes, resulting in safer, higher quality SAP development which won’t break production.
