Cut time and costs when you move to SAP S/4HANA

Moving to S/4HANA – however you’re choosing to get there – is likely to be the biggest SAP-related project on your horizon. Whether you use a Greenfield, Brownfield or Selective Data Transition (SDT) approach, DSM can cut costs significantly, as well as saving you time and ensuring a more efficient process. With DSM, you can reduce the footprint of your SAP systems by enterprise and/or time-slice to deliver lean, business-aligned landscapes with increased agility for current and future upgrades.

Before you migrate, use DSM to rationalize your landscape. During migration, use DSM to build a lean, dedicated sandbox for the project. Then use DSM to build out smaller new test and development systems. After the migration, DSM can keep your landscape agile.

Streamline data processes and protect your data with DSM

The DSM Suite is made up of four complementary products that can be used in conjunction with each other or independently: System Builder™/Shell Sync™, Client Sync™, Object Sync™ and Data Secure™.

How does DSM solve your challenges?

High disk space/cost


High disk space/cost

Doing SAP system copies is a method used to duplicate an SAP system, and copy data back from Production systems. This means you copy the whole system, which takes up the same amount of disk space as your Production system – becoming very costly over time. With SAP S/4HANA systems, this cost is even higher, as S/4HANA disk space tends to be more expensive. And in the cloud, you need a larger T-shirt size on your appliance.

With DSM, you can reduce the footprint of your non-production environment:
- By enabling developers, analysts, and consultants to copy just the data they need, you can reduce the number of non-production systems used, and refresh less frequently.
- Client Sync allows test clients to be less than 30% of the Production size. You can also create temporary systems for projects that can be discarded afterwards.

It used to cost us a lot to have a full-scope quality environment, which not many business users were making use of. Data Sync Manager allowed us to shrink our overall data size much more than we expected upfront. It’s also fantastic that we can do refreshes ourselves.

Securing sensitive data

Securing sensitive data

With current data privacy legislation, keeping sensitive data in your non-production environment is not acceptable practice. SAP states in their contract (Data processing Agreement for Cloud services, SAP support and SAP Services) that all data in non-production should be anonymized. 

Limit data to only what is adequate, relevant and necessary. Data minimization enables you to reduce both your risk in the testing environment, and security threats.

DSM includes Data Secure for intelligent scrambling of test data, executed on specific datasets or masking an entire client. Data Secure is integrated with Object Sync and Client Sync so data is masked before it leaves the source.

We wanted to be 100% confident that all sensitive data was masked. We needed a product that would remove the manual effort, allow us to schedule jobs and enable us to comply with regulations. That product proved to be Data Secure.

Faster refreshes

Faster refreshes

To refresh your QA or DEV environment with data, you can do an SAP system copy, but this process is resource-heavy and cumbersome, causing Production downtime. By selecting to do Client copies instead, you can speed up the process significantly. 

Client Sync eliminates the need for the BDLS, as it looks for all logical system source values in the data at the same time, and makes changes while the data is in memory. 
- Test users are empowered to get what they need when they need it. Source and Target system are available throughout.
- Most organizations can refresh QA over a weekend. Target deletion and Source extract start at the same time. 

DSM has saved us a considerable amount of time as refreshes have improved from manual intervention with a lot of costly activity, to minimal activity.

Effectiveness of testing

Effectiveness of testing

The effectiveness of your testing is dependent on the quality of your test data. Without accurate test data, you can’t be sure the result of your testing will perform the same in your Production environment. 

With DSM, you can make sure the test environment is set up to be in line with Production, populated with accurate, scrambled data, and with a smaller subset of data. 

DSM has given us a faster, more consistent test process, and allowed us to meet ad hoc business requests quickly. It’s also reduced our data footprint and masked our sensitive data, which is a big bonus.

Training scenarios

Training scenarios

Training co-ordinators need specific examples to train employees on their systems. Creating specific datasets that can be changed in a training environment is the ideal scenario. 

With DSM, you can ‘clone’ data for each student in the class:
- Any test client can now be a training client. Object Sync can clone existing data and into a specific number range. Everyone on the training course has matching data.
- Prepare your perfect training sets with Object Sync, then back up the client for quick resetting if wider data is affected. A master training client can automatically overwrite the clients that are used for training on a periodic basis.

DSM has had a profound effect on our training... There is no post-processing and the costs of 260GB of disk are saved, every time!

Problem simulations

Problem simulations

Support teams need to be able to replicate a problem that occurred in the system. Doing problem resolution in your Production system is risky, and can cause further damage. But without the dataset causing the problem in non-production, simulating the problem is difficult.  

Complex data or surrounding data can be brought to  replicate the problem exactly; for example, materials with the latest pricing conditions. Without DSM, just replicating the problem can take hours.

DSM has been a real game-changer for us, and has allowed the team to work much more efficiently.

Data Sync Manager is very good at taking selective pieces of data that we need, and slicing that into different sizes. So for each environment, you wouldn’t necessarily take the same amount of data, because you don’t need as much data in a sandbox system as in a test system. So DSM is good at slicing and dicing the data as you need it, to reduce size.

Steve Ross, SAP Technical Services Manager, Dunelm

Data Sync Manager offers us the capability to do a fast refresh of a system using a specific time slice without needing business analysts. We now re-use same exports multiple times to refresh our development system, and to reduce our footprint we refresh the QA and Dev system with a time-slice of data. The support we received during implementation has been very good. We have seen a big improvement in the quality of our test data in QAS!

IT Manager, Associated Weavers

I think Data Sync Manager is something all SAP users need. I found it really hard previously as we had to do so much testing with key users after we made the copies, to make sure we had good, clear data after synchronisation; now we can speed up the process, as we don't need to do this testing with users.

IT Manager, Leading bedding specialist

I use Data Sync Manager to do a client copy. The benefit of using a client copy is that it is now much faster and it requires none of the lengthy post-processing time. Instead of having to plan for weeks, I can create a copy and it is ready within a day or two.

Suzanne van Kalsbeek, Manager Business Apps, Sound United/Masimo Consumer

Our IT team can now refresh our test data (both SAP and non-SAP) quickly, easily, consistently and independently. We can run a refresh project of 54 operating companies in over 30 SAP systems in just a few days. And importantly, all our sensitive data is consistently anonymous.

Manoranjan Mishra, Product Owner: Insights Enablement Portfolio, Heineken

To have the ability to copy accurate, time-sliced data is very powerful. It increases our confidence level in terms of our testing before we put the solution into the live environment.

Harsha Patel, Technology Solutions Manager, BT

The benefit we get from using Data Sync Manager is that we quickly have test data available. This means I could start a job to get the data from the production system for the coming night, and then tomorrow I can import the data into the development system. So in two days I can have the test data available in the development system.
