Whether it's a new sandbox or training system you're after, or whether you're looking to realign the non-production repositories with production, building that new system usually implies lots of time and effort, not to mention extra disk space and careful transport management. Meet System Builder: our solution is to build a new non-production system, with a repository exactly the same as that of production, but without the production client.
System Builder, part of our Data Sync Manager product suite, provides a standard, extendable solution for making a complete copy of all repository objects and client-independent data in production. The extract can be created quickly and has a small footprint.
Use this export to create a new non-production system 'shell', with client 000 (contains the basic client-dependent customization supplied by SAP for new clients), client 066 (used by SAP for support) and optionally client 001 (customization copy of client 000). The SAP Software Provisioner Manager (SWPM) installs the new system from the export The new shell will be in sync with production and is the perfect target system for a Client Sync . You can then use Object Sync to add only the specific data relevant to your purpose (such as training or testing). The result is a system with the same repository, a smaller footprint and up-to-date data.
For some customers this is a valid alternative to System Builder, but once the system is above 500GB the deletion can take a long time. Also, the disk space has to be paid for in the first place and cannot be returned until the deletion is complete. The process of renaming the database afterwards is also not trivial. With System Builder you copy less data, so it is quicker and more secure, and uses minimal disk space. It is a simple process – you will never look back
EPI-USE Labs works with a great number of public sector organizations, and has specific capability to handle test data management needs for organizations in this sector. Object Sync seamlessly manages multiple employment contracts, and Grants Management and Funds Management have dedicated objects for copying test data on demand for those complex testing situations.
Organizations leveraging the Bank Analyzer solution from SAP can now carry out lean system refreshes with Client Sync on the Bank Analyzer system whenever the backend system is being refreshed. The post-processing in Client Sync automates around two days of manual effort normally required after a system copy for Bank Analyzer test systems.
