Maintenance Automation in SAP System Environments
Reading time: 7 mins
Effective maintenance practices are essential to help keep SAP systems running as they should. But when maintenance processes are ineffective, critical business applications can become unavailable, leading to disruption of business operations.
As organizations move SAP workloads to the cloud, they seek to be more agile and proactive in developing more straightforward solutions and in a more cost-effective way. What’s more, as multi-vendor environments become more prevalent, integration across SAP and non-SAP systems is an increasingly important objective.
Maintenance automation in SAP system environments can help fend off potential issues. For business leaders, reducing downtime, speeding up deployment, and enhancing security are the primary goals.
