“The assessment tool, I think was a lesson learned here, if we were starting from scratch again or for the next migration, I would use the assessment tool as it really is a good starting place for migration planning.”

Case

We are discussing the migration to SAP Cloud Integration by a major grocery chain in the Oceania region that has migrated more than 100 integrations.

They are using both the Figaf DevOps Suite and the Figaf Migration Tool.

The migration is coordinated with a SAP S/4 HANA Migration project which required they migrate a certain number of interfaces to keep up with the project.

Results

  • Saved days on the migration project with Figaf’s Migration Assessment Report
  • Able to retrieve test cases from the production environment for testing migrated iFlows

“Figaf DevOps Tool covers the needs for the entire development process and is the only software that allows you to automate the delivery of your SAP Integration. By using this software, developers can focus on what they are best at, development. “

Case

Olympus Europa is the headquarters for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) of the Japanese Olympus Corporation. The global leader in optical and digital precision technology employs 6,750 people in Hamburg, Germany. Olympus Europe and its 31 subsidiaries in the EMEA region sell state-of-the-art medical systems, digital cameras, and scientific solutions for around € 1.7 billion per year.

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.
