Atlanta/Stuttgart | August 25, 2017 – Stonebranch, the world’s leading provider of innovative workload automation and job scheduling software, and Libelle, recognized as a software specialist for disaster recovery and high-availability solutions, SAP system copies, data anonymization and pseudonymization and SAP system feature enhancements, are concluding a global collaboration partnership. This agreement will enable both companies to bundle their SAP expertise to provide customers even better support for the digital transformation.
Going forward, businesses will benefit in a variety of ways from the focused expertise of Stonebranch and Libelle arising from the collaboration between both partners, whether in automation and orchestration, real-time IT and application processes, disaster recovery and high-availability solution concept design, issues surrounding dynamic workload automation, business continuity, agile software deployment or continuous delivery.
Fully Automated SAP System Copy and Refresh Processing and Orchestration
During initial talks, both companies developed a mutual concept for deploying a fully automated solution for real-time SAP system copy and refresh. This not only makes it possible to automate SAP system copy processes, it also enables businesses to integrate these system copy/refresh processes in the dynamic workload automation and orchestration landscape thanks to existing interfaces in both software solutions.
Alongside dramatically improved data and application quality, this also increases the automation level in SAP processing. System copy processes can be monitored, administered and executed in real time via web dashboards.
Headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, Libelle has been an established software specialist for DR and HA (data mirroring), the creation of training, QA and test systems (homogeneous system copies and client copies of SAP® systems), data anonymization/data pseudonymization, master data life cycle management, monitoring tools (system/business processes, iDocs), ABAP®/ABAP® OO and has many years of SAP expertise.
