Red Hat announced a multi-stage alliance to offer customers a greater choice of operating systems to run on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Basis Technologies introduced DevAnalytics, a new addition to its expanding DevOps Toolset for SAP.
DevAnalytics provides a comprehensive set of metrics that can be used to identify waste, inefficiency and bottlenecks during development and delivery of SAP change. This new-found insight gives managers the confidence to make organizational and process changes that deliver cost reductions and a faster response to shifting customer expectations.
SAP systems enable commercial differentiation within many companies, so the speed and efficiency with which SAP change is delivered has a direct impact on both competitive advantage and company bottom line. Despite this, it is often difficult to see exactly where money is being spent and where bottlenecks occur during SAP development. DevAnalytics offers thirty-five delivery performance metrics across five key classifications - velocity, cycle time, rework & waste, work in progress and approval time – that can enable companies to understand where action needs to be taken to optimize delivery of SAP change.
With so many people working on SAP systems, sorting the great from the good can be challenging. The data delivered by DevAnalytics provides a new opportunity to measure teams and suppliers against both internal and external benchmarks.
Firms now have a comprehensive, transparent way to set and track SAP change performance metrics for suppliers, whilst system integrators gain the means to differentiate themselves from their peers by demonstrating ongoing improvement.
Business agility is a fundamental requirement in the digital economy and commonly goes hand-in-hand with the use of modern development methodologies such as Agile and DevOps. DevAnalytics supports the adoption of Agile and DevOps for SAP by providing a set of metrics that can be used to assess performance on an on-going basis. Objective milestones can be set and used to track continuous improvement.
DevAnalytics is available now and is fully compatible with SAP instances running SAP Solution Manager2, whether cloud-based or on premise.
