Handling multiple stages within an integration architecture is a challenging task also for Mark Lehmann who is a Senior Enterprise Application Integration Consultant at Olympus. He says he has rarely seen a company that has achieved a unified setup within development-, test- and production environment. However, in his view, this is an ideal state or even “the paradise,” as he says. He recognized the potential of Figaf for SAP Integration and implemented the Figaf DevOps tool. The first “real world” run they conducted after the implementation was a major go live with 57 transports which was a success.
