SAP® jobs management should not be a big challenge anymore

 

The Problem

Background jobs are the backbone of all SAP® activities. Having thousands of jobs running in your SAP® systems daily there is no comprehensive solution for job’s analysis, control and optimization.

 

To solve problems  basis experts have first to be able to detect them

Existing SAP®  tools leave a big gap in ability to understand trends, analyze history and predict  future failures

 

Critical aspects  of job’s behavior are inaccessible via existing SAP® tools

Ability to go  from “500 feet height” overview to a detailed analysis while focusing on anomalies cannot be achieved  with the mere help of existing SAP®  transactions.

 

Lack of root-cause analysis is a major reason for inefficiency and time loss

Basis team members are struggling on a daily base to respond quickly and efficiently to job’s related problems. These recurrent tasks turn to be quite costly, also affecting  the  quality of service,  provided by IT.
