SAP has updated its roadmap and strategy to focus on its next-generation, cloud-ready S/4 HANA platform. This change makes many current job scheduling options within the native SAP job scheduler or the SAP Netweaver platform obsolete as some job schedulers near their end of life and lose support, either now or in the near future.

  • How to drive down operations efforts by scheduling and monitoring the end-to-end system copy process via a single web GUI

  • How to minimize manual efforts, execution time and errors using predefined automation workflows and tasks, rather than a collection of scripts
