Eric Dupont, Information Systems Architect at Rémy Cointreau, explains how Rémy Cointreau used Data Sync Manager to manage and refresh its five SAP systems, leading to time savings and improved efficiency.
"We initially chose DSM to allow us to manage and refresh our five SAP systems that we had at the time more easily. The implementation of the product for the five SAP systems was done in a few months.
Previously, when we refreshed these five systems we called this the systems copy. For a systems’ copy, it took us one non-working day, plus five working days with at least two people working full-time to do this work. Manual, slow, and very laborious. Once we started using DSM, it took only half a day to do the exports, and all exports were planned and automated.
The whole process was simplified a lot for us because there are many operations that disappeared. This is due to the fact that DSM is transferring only the data, and therefore the entire base no longer needs to be recreated, like you do with a copy system. We used Client Sync and System Builder…allowing us to completely recreate our new development environment.
The involvement of EPI-USE Labs, and the simplicity and accessibility of the tool ensured that it went really well. DSM has gained the loyalty of both stakeholders and operators. Simply, through its ease of use and the simplicity of implementation. The feedback was very good from the teams; they’re using it repeatedly.
The SAP instance refresh tools 100%, independent of technical bases. This is what brings flexibility…This is the case with DSM. There are not many of these types of tools on the market. What really guided our search was the operational aspect of the tool, user satisfaction, and the ease and iterative nature in its use."
