SAP Replication and Check AddOn Solution

Robust utility companies that use a standard integrated solution of SAP IS-U and SAP CRM have to deal with the data exchange among systems to cover all core business processes.  This approach often creates a difficult challenge, and additional administration as all master and transaction data must be consistent.

Due to the complexity of the business processes, the unprocessed replication and inconsistencies could be quite demanding for human resources and technical knowledge.  Daily administration must be carried out and monitored. These tasks included everything from inbound-outbound queues in the CRM and IS-U, middleware, error monitoring to short dumps, switch documents, iDocs, and more.  The daily upkeep is essential because if inconsistent data is throughout the integrated systems, it can negatively influence the business process and quality of the service.

The solution is SAP. This tool provides monitoring of contract and technical data as well as includes consistency for utility with the scenario called SAP Utility Check Cockpit.  The concept is using scheduled runs for system data consistency checks using the implemented standard and custom controls.
