Culture, people and technology efficiently combined
DevOps is the close integration of development, IT operations and quality assurance across departmental boundaries. Specifically, it describes a new, agile way of collaboration between specialist departments, development and IT with the common goal of generating continuous added value for their own customers. This is what you achieve with DevOps for SAP.
In order to make standard SAP processes fully future-proof in times of digitization, one aspect in particular is essential: the ability to drive new developments in an agile and fast way, to react promptly to requirements, and to implement changes as quickly as possible.
Enable organizational structures for DevOps
The majority of SAP customers operate multiple, separately operating development and operations teams. Developers write their ABAP or Java source code on the appropriate development system, and SAP Basis teams on the opposite side ensure that the system operation of the productive environment is as trouble-free as possible. Every in-house development that is moved into the productive system creates an operational risk for SAP Basis. Similarly, every request from SAP Basis is an unplanned delay for developers. Unfortunately, this is everyday life and is costly for the customer.
New business requirements are not being implemented in an acceptable timeframe and are piling up in the development pipeline. The resulting “mammoth releases” increase the risk of system failures. If the productive deployment of these major upgrades goes wrong, it results in critical production downtime.
IT departments are therefore faced with the challenge of adapting increasingly complex SAP landscapes to constantly changing requirements ever more quickly with limited resources. This is a split that only a fundamental change of method can make possible.
