There are immutable laws and rules for many things, from nature to physics to karma. Observability, with its innate complexity, also has its own immutable rules, which transform elastic and ephemeral rote reactions to a clear and concise approach and understanding of your environment. Join this webinar to learn the rules you should understand with your approach to observability, including:
- The impact of open and flexible data ingest and instrumentation
- The impact of data retention and aggregation on blind spot analysis
- The observability corollary to the Von Neumann bottleneck
- The innate drive for seamless workflow integration

In this webinar Basis Technologies, pioneers of DevOps for SAP, and smartShift Technologies, leaders in the field of automated SAP system transformation, come together to discuss how automation solves some of the key challenges that stand in the way of a successful transition to S/4HANA. Join the webinar to learn:
- About the technical difficulty of migrating existing systems and processes to new S/4HANA systems
- How SAP-specific automation can help you to get to S/4HANA faster, with less cost, effort and risk
- The unique integrated solution provided by Basis Technologies and smartShift
- How DevOps automation and a Continuous Modernization approach help you get more from S/4HANA after go-live

Businesses depend on SAP, but in many the SAP change and upgrade cycle operates independently from other enterprise applications. A slower, rigid waterfall approach to SAP software development remains common, even where agile and DevOps have revolutionized development and delivery in other parts of the organization. This isolation of SAP drives inefficiency and reduces business agility. Integrating SAP into an enterprise-wide IT tool chain helps to accelerate the adoption of agile and DevOps, aligning the pace of change in back-end systems with the needs of customer business. This webinar explores the current drivers behind agile and DevOps outside of SAP, why these trends make sense for SAP teams, and how the SAP release cycle can be aligned with the wider business through tool chain integration.

Implementation of a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline in SAP systems provides far greater business agility, freeing organizations from the shackles of a defined release calendar by enabling safe, on-demand deployment of functionality as soon as it is ready.Watch the on-demand session to:
- Understand the type of tooling required for CI/CD, both inside and outside SAP systems
- Follow a step-by-step explanation of the life of an SAP change in a CI/CD environment, from requirements definition to production deployment
- Understand how automated delivery of SAP change can be integrated into an enterprise-wide multi-application pipeline
- See examples of the benefits that CI/CD can bring

The terms "DevOps" and "continuous delivery" occur with increasing frequency in conversations within the SAP community. But many SAP professionals have always worked on slow, large-scale waterfall developments and simply haven't had the chance to become familiar with — let alone expert in — what DevOps is, and the benefits it can deliver. This on-demand webinar will provide a basic primer on the topic of DevOps for SAP, including the origins of the concept, the core principles behind it and how — crucially — it enables faster, safer, more cost-efficient delivery of change that can transform the way you maintain, update and adapt your SAP systems.

Managing applications across different clouds is easier said than done. Organizations often cite challenges with siloed tools, inconsistent management and visibility gaps.
