EPI-USE Labs and Revelation Software Concepts Offer Refresh As Service
21 Nov 17
Melbourne, AU – November 6, 2017 – EPI-USE Labs, a leading SAP landscape optimisation provider, and Revelation Software Concepts Pty Ltd (RSC), creator of the market leading Rev-Trac® SAP change control automation platform, today announced a strategic alliance to develop and market a new Refresh as a Service (RAAS) offering to support an automated and seamless SAP landscape refresh. The combined solution, rolling out in the APAC region, will provide a two-pronged approach to system copies. EPI-USE Labs Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) will be used for the automated copy and scramble of data to non-production systems, and RSC’s Rev-Trac will be used to identify transport re-import requirements across non-production systems.
Any WIP (work in progress) SAP transports present in the target refresh system need to be reapplied following the refresh. Identifying these transports pre- and post- refresh is difficult, and takes users a considerable amount of time to investigate, identify and then reapply the missing transports.
“We see this issue more and more among our customers,” said Daniel Parker, EPI-USE Labs Professional Services Manager APJ “By combining forces with RSC to offer a powerful datacopy and transport compare solution and delivering it as a RAAS, SAP test teams finally have a method by which they can leverage the best of both technologies with a pricing approach that hasn’t previously been available.”
EPI-USE Labs’ consultants will be able to quickly identify the SAP Transports that may need to be re-imported, efficiently perform the import of the transports and leave the customer with a fully synchronised system post service. The SAP-certified DSM product suite facilitates the rapid creation of new non-production systems, reduces the data footprint when refreshing existing test clients or creating new ones, and copies selected data on demand, all with integrated scrambling of data for security.
“With DevOps, you want to create your operating procedures (SOP) around a refresh, and part of that process is having predicable outage windows,” said Rick Porter, Vice President Business Development at RSC. “Together, EPI-USE Labs and RSC effectively convert a tedious manual mechanism into a very simple, consistent and automated methodology for returning the refreshed system to the state it was in prior to the refresh within a predictable window.”
