UC4 Launches UC4 Automated System Copy for SAP

New Solution Reduces Manual Error and Cuts the Time of the SAP System Copy Procedure by up to 90 Percent

BELLEVUE, WA and VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwire - October 12, 2009) - UC4 Software, a leading provider of Intelligent Service Automation and IT process optimization solutions, today announced the availability of UC4 Automated System Copy™ for SAP®, a new solution that enables the SAP community to drastically reduce the effort and costs associated with the SAP system copy procedure.

An SAP certified partner, UC4 is the first vendor to automate the complex and manually intensive SAP system copy procedure, which SAP recommends be performed on a regular basis to give business users an up-to-date copy of the SAP production into SAP QA.

A typical company using SAP may copy an SAP system one to two times a month, requiring three to five days to complete the manual steps. UC4 Automated System Copy for SAP reduces manual time to a full or half day for each copy, allowing companies to regain up to a week of productivity a month.

With UC4, SAP system copy can be planned and executed in a parallel mode and manual intervention is kept to a minimum, allowing daily work to continue as normal, saving valuable time, reducing errors, freeing up resources, and providing efficient and consistent non-productive systems.

For example, the BDLS transaction that is used to convert the logical system name can take days. UC4 Automated System Copy for SAP reduces that time to a few hours by reading the table information and converting them in parallel processing.

Through the use of UC4's automation solution, errors that typically occur through manual process steps -- as well as additional costs through repetition -- can be avoided. The solution also allows for better accountability with central administration and monitoring, and notification of completed processes.

"We developed UC4 Automated System Copy for SAP in order to address a very complex, time consuming and manually intensive procedure that is in every SAP data center," said Fred Kohout, chief marketing officer at UC4. "The amount of time and resources that it takes to manually perform this task is straining IT organizations already strapped for resources. By using the UC4 automation solution, IT staff can devote more resources to strategic actions that add value to the company."

"As organizations examine their workflow, it is less important to develop automated solutions for new tasks, rather it's critical to identify bottlenecks that already exist and identify processes to release them," said Andi Mann, vice president of research at EMA. "UC4's real-time solutions are a precursor to how organizations must work, moving forward, to find success."
