dsm.jpg Data Sync ManagerTM Suite

Flexible, consistent and secure copying of data

Your organisation asks more of its SAP® systems every day. At the same time your team is required to do more with fewer resources and less time - making it difficult to respond to the rapidly changing needs of the business. Rapid data growth, special projects and system upgrades and updates add to these challenges. Falling behind is a real threat as the status quo hinders your ability to keep up with the business.

Continuing to operate day-to-day in a reactive mode is not sustainable. It is essential to shift to a proactive approach to manage your complex SAP environments and masses of data, and thus optimise your organisation.

You can't meet these challenges with just desire and effort. You need game-changing solutions.

With the Data Sync Manager (DSM) suite of products, you can rapidly create new non-production systems, reduce the footprint when refreshing clients, copy selected data on-demand, and scramble data for security. This guarantees that your SAP users always enjoy access to up-to-date, relevant data for Production support, testing and training – you get the data you need, when you need it.

DSM is essential for day-to-day management of your system landscape and during installations and upgrades, for even the most complex SAP system landscapes. With DSM, you save time, reduce costs and risks and improve business efficiency.

DSM is indispensible throughout the entire SAP landscape lifecycle. From creating a system shell with System Builder, and using Client Sync to add fully functional clients with reduced footprints, to supplementing the data using Object Sync as needed and using Data Secure to mask sensitive data for security, governance and compliance.

Mergers? Carve-outs? Acquisitions? You need DSM.

Nothing stays the same in business, and events such as mergers, system splits, carve-outs and acquisitions need careful handling as they affect your entire production landscape. Our System Landscape Optimization (SLO) team, using a specially enabled version of the DSM products, is perfectly suited to implement these changes. These projects are complex, critical and always time-sensitive. They require powerful products, very experienced people and proven methodologies. For details on our services, please visit our SLO page.

[fa icon="plus-square"] Where is DSM stored on my SAP system?
DSM is entirely written in object-oriented ABAP, using some of the very latest techniques. This allows us to update the product modularly and make use of the latest hardware technology. With modern server capabilities there is no need for intermediary systems; data can be selected, extracted, transformed (e.g. scrambled), compressed and exported from the source system, and then unpacked and inserted on the target.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do I need extra hardware for installing DSM?
Not at all. Unlike some other copy products, DSM does not require any additional hardware or middleware. You just download the transport from our Support Portal, and transport it as normal to the relevant systems. It can be installed across the landscape in less than a day.
[fa icon="plus-square"] Which industry solutions does DSM support?
DSM supports all Industry Solutions and includes enhanced functionality for Retail, Public Sector, Media, Utilities, Mining, Insurance, Oil, Retail, Public Sector, Discrete Industries, Collections, disbursements and Telecommunications.
[fa icon="plus-square"] What if DSM doesn't support the business objects my company uses?
The wide breadth of existing customers, both geographically and in terms of industry, means that we have had exposure to a raft of objects and functionality. In ERP alone there are over 500 objects supported. Our implementation process allows us to quickly identify any unsupported objects and establish their priority for the customer. In recent years there has rarely been a need to develop any additional objects for a new customer
[fa icon="plus-square"] Do you provide any training or support?

Our philosophy is to ensure you get the full benefit from our products, which is why we offer various product training courses delivered by highly competent experts.

When you purchase an EPI-USE Labs product, you also get full access to a team of experts who are there to help you in every way possible. We back our products with service and support above and beyond the call of duty.

[fa icon="plus-square"] Will DSM still work if we upgrade our SAP system?
Yes, EPI-USE Labs is continually developing and improving DSM, so we supply updated versions of DSM for each new SAP release, and ensure that DSM will work after each upgrade. Remember that DSM can even help you with your upgrade, as it can copy from lower to higher SAP releases and there is no cost to download a different version of DSM when you have upgraded.
