AWS SAP Monitoring
What is SAP?
SAP (System Analysis Program Development) is the leader in the market of enterprise application software and consists of a multitude of fully integrated modules. Essentially, it helps to centralize data management for businesses large and small, combining separate operational databases into one single view and covering virtually every aspect of business management. SAP systems make complex processes in areas of finance, logistics, human resources and business, much easier to manage.
What is Amazon Web Services (AWS)?
Enterprises require cost-effective access to resources and applications in order to manage their business effectively. Cloud service platforms are necessary to deliver services, and they offer businesses database storage, compute power and delivery of content.
Synergy Research Group’s 2018 report suggests that $70 billion are spent on cloud computing infrastructure services. AWS is one of the most comprehensive and widely used cloud platforms in the world, and consequently takes up a large share of the market. It offers a broad range of different global cloud-based products for business purposes.
Managed AWS SAP Solutions
SAP HANA, SAP Business Suite, SAP Hybris and a multitude of other SAP services are fully compatible and supported when deployed in the AWS Cloud. AWS and SAP have been working together closely to ensure that customers can shift and transform their SAP landscapes and use AWS to effectively run their SAP workloads.
Now, more than 5000 customers run SAP on AWS. As the number of businesses migrating their SAP environments increases, the need for a comprehensive monitoring service to assist in the process is more and more apparent.
Migrating SAP to AWS
While undergoing SAP migration to AWS, it’s critical to maintain excellent AWS SAP monitoring and real-time alert practices. Managing the migration process using SAP Solution Manager can often be difficult as it requires a great deal of time and in-house resources to manually process new implementations. The execution of effective SAP Performance Monitoring on AWS is fundamental to a smooth and seamless migration.
Full visibility into the SAP landscape is necessary in order to monitor all of the configuration changes within the system and to make sure that all of these changes are properly established across all systems. It is imperative that excellent AWS SAP monitoring and notification practices are implemented around ERP systems in real-time, in order to identify any SAP landscape issues which may arise and to prevent them before they occur.
The future of SAP operations
The daily activity of system monitoring to check whether systems are performing correctly or not is key to the functioning of effective SAP management. It allows us to understand potential problems in advance and to take the necessary corrective actions to prevent them.
With the increasing need to quickly adapt, stay agile and remain resilient, more customers are seeing the benefits of investing in AWS SAP monitoring and management solutions which can help their businesses to cut unnecessary costs and improve efficiency. Modern enterprises must find ways in which they can monitor SAP, protect against system outages without the expense of constant manual tracking.
Automated SAP environments are the future of SAP operations. Increased performance, lower costs and in-built resilience to disruption are now a necessity. Unified operation platforms such as Avantra, which provide intelligent and unmatchable insights into SAP landscape health are indispensable within the modern enterprise space.
