Deliver More Business Value, Faster, with SAP Change and Release Automation
Managing change across a complex SAP landscape is challenging. Manual processes, driven by spreadsheets, are the traditional solution but this approach is error-prone and inefficient, delaying innovation by forcing the business to prioritize the safety of critical systems over speed of delivery.
Our change and release automation technology allows you to eliminate spreadsheets, deliver change quickly and safely, and improve deployment across the release lifecycle. It provides control, visibility and governance that enables your SAP team to support business objectives with lower risk, effort, and cost, freeing them to concentrate on activities that bring more value and greater competitive edge.
Our automation software transforms the way you manage SAP systems, enabling fast, safe delivery of change that can set your business apart.
Reduce errors, incidents and downtime
Almost every change made in an SAP landscape has the potential to disrupt, or even bring down, production systems. Our automation platform massively reduces the risk caused by SAP change by eliminating common issues such as missing transports and dependencies, ensuring correct sequencing, and automating comprehensive regression testing. Most technical errors are automatically avoided while the remainder are detected far sooner – an increase in quality that ensures business-critical systems are kept safe.
Eliminate manual effort
The complex, interdependent nature of SAP systems makes manual management of change a tough proposition. When it comes to major releases, which may contain thousands of transports, a manual, spreadsheet-driven approach is simply far too slow and labor-intensive. Our change and release automation technology eliminates this manual effort, automatically checking, sequencing and deploying approved changes from development to production. Change becomes faster and safer, and your SAP team is free to focus on activities that add more value.
Accelerate change and deliver more
Manual SAP change management leaves you with virtually no chance to effectively manage risk and deliver at the speed the business demands. The quality and visibility provided by our automation platform allows you to get changes from development to production more quickly and in greater volume, without the risk of production downtime. Our software provides SAP teams with release management that automates and orchestrates cross-system and cross-project deployments, ensuring dependencies are always managed and sequenced correctly.
Reduce the cost of SAP change
Our change and release automation software rapidly reduces the cost of SAP change, eliminating common technical defects and greatly reducing the risk of production downtime. Any issues that do occur are identified far earlier, when they’re much cheaper and easier to fix. Automated regression testing minimizes one of the most significant costs of major projects and upgrades, and further lowers the cost of regular development by identifying process regressions before they impact production systems.
Governance, compliance and visibility
Traditional manual change and release processes tend to operate in silos which isolate information from those that need to know. Our automation software replaces these opaque workflows with high-visibility automated processes, acting as a fully auditable ‘single source of truth’ for all information on SAP change. Approvals – often a black hole of deleted emails and lost attachments – become automated, transparent and traceable, while business owners are able to see when SAP changes will be live.
Manage projects more efficiently
‘N+N’ SAP landscapes, where concurrent development occurs across multiple project tracks in addition to a ‘business as usual’ path, are perhaps the most difficult scenarios to manage. Our SAP change control solution dynamically manages change across different systems without object locking. Automated cross-system merges accelerate cut-overs, lower resource costs and massively reduce downtime caused by re-keying of errors. Meanwhile, fully automated regression testing minimizes one of the most significant project costs.
Our Products: ActiveControl
Faster, Safer Releases with SAP Change Automation
ActiveControl automates almost every aspect of the SAP change and release process to massively reduce manual effort and protect systems from downtime. Risk, quality, impact, and dependency checks increase the quality of change, which is automatically deployed from development through to production once approvals are in place. Cross-system sequencing and orchestration is fully supported, and automated cross-project merges lower the risk of multi-track development.Learn More

Integrate SAP and ITSM
Dedicated ITSM tools help many businesses to run their enterprise-wide change management processes, but SAP is often disconnected. Tickets have to be maintained in both the ITSM and SAP systems, which requires significant manual effort, introduces the risk of error and may reduce visibility for the Change Approval Board. ActiveControl allows you to effortlessly integrate SAP into your ITSM system, with bi-directional updates ensuring that the business can have full control and visibility of SAP change at all times.
Our automated DevOps and testing platform massively reduces the time and effort needed to execute SAP change, helping customers seize market opportunity and grow their business. Achieve measurable business benefits with an entirely new approach to SAP delivery.
