Tools for SAP test systems
This is why companies need professional test data management
Unsorted unloading: - By default, R3load sorts table data by primary key before export. This requires time and resources in the source system. Under certain conditions, this sorting can be omitted.

For companies, however, professional test data management is not only interesting for optimizing existing systems and processes particularly securely and quickly. With such a solution, they are also able to simulate the effects of serious changes even before the actual transformation. This can be extremely profitable, for example, for the conversion of existing ERP systems to the new SAP Business Suite S/4HANA. Decision-makers are thus able to successfully circumvent any transformation risks and define a roadmap for a smooth process.
Possibility of manual intervention in case of delta import
In SAP, the admin must be happy to build new landscapes so that testing, development and enhancement can take place. In a system copy, the approaches are as colorful and varied as the philosophies of the administrators. The important thing is to think about the target system before building it. After all, after the database is removed and the system is rebuilt, there will be two identical systems on the network.

A system copy can be created either with SAP transactions (R3trans, from R4.6C SAPinst) or at file and database level. Costs and effort increase with the size of the system and the requirements for availability and data protection. In addition, administrative rework is often necessary, starting with the system name and extending to printers and interfaces.

To shorten the list of activities and to simplify the complete process of a system copy or a system refresh and to save manual activities, you can use "Shortcut for SAP Systems". Several manual activities can be omitted because with "Shortcut for SAP Systems" the system-specific data can be saved before the copy and imported again afterwards - also automated. This reduces the error-proneness that is inevitably caused by manual activities and enormously reduces the time span until the system is available again.

In this context, generated jobs adapt to changes, even if, for example, a DB change, a release change or other changes have taken place.

Backup / Restore: If the source system must not fail, eg to copy the database files, one can create an online backup of the database, copy the backup files to the new server and perform a restore before performing the SAP installation over the existing database.
