Steps Towards an Agile SAP Development Process

In this blog post, I would like to share with you some of the thinking behind Gekkobrain DevOps for SAP and how the exciting new features in release 1.5 will help you on your journey to build an agile SAP development process. With our tools, we are moving the needle on what’s currently possible in an SAP team.

How Long Does it Take to Adapt Custom Code for SAP HANA?

It’s no exaggeration to say the most time-consuming aspect of getting your systems HANA-ready is fixing any incompatible ABAP code – but how long does it take to adapt your custom code for SAP HANA? Gekkobrain’s software eliminates around 90% of the manual work, so if you had to venture into this yourself, it would be very time consuming to say the least. The projects we have completed range from anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 calendar months, so without out algorithm and automation, it would have been up to 10 times that!

Getting your custom code ready for a HANA upgrade

Upgrading to SAP HANA in itself is a relatively straightforward process, because SAP has already prepared all its own code for HANA. I won’t go into details about why you should upgrade, because the benefits are covered elsewhere. All I can say is that you definitely would want to upgrade. HANA’s take on big data opens up entirely new ways to run your business.

Why not clean up your ABAP code today?

Over the past few months we have been in dialogue with quite a number of our partners’ customers, and in those conversations, one thing has become very clear: Very few realize that cleaning up custom code is not something that should wait until you decide to upgrade. You should start now.

SAP Code Migration as a Service

SAP has invented a new database. Most of us know that by now. But what not all SAP customers know is that in order to move on to HANA then their custom coded ABAP programs must change, in some cases almost all of the custom code lines will need some change to survive the jump.
