Providing Test Data Pain Points

Is your company facing

<Place a picture from the SMART Image Library here that relates to your solution or target industry>

The need to test and validate your custom developments early on with real business data? Multiple parallel IT projects affecting different organizational units with diverse project timelines? Scrambling real business data in non-productive systems? Large and quickly growing SAP systems, causing increasing infrastructure and maintenance expenses?

SAP Test Data Migration Server (TDMS) can help

SAP AG 2006, 2

Providing Test Data Current Situation

CHALLENGE Production systems constantly becoming larger RESULT
Administration of large data volume Storage space is expensive Interfaces (change/shut down) Create new users or block existing ones

After every copy, settings need to be readjusted

Assign new authorizations Copy saved objects back into the system ( CATTS) Logical System Change (trans. BDLS)

Developments need to be stopped (before system rebuild) New development testing can only be performed in the Q/A System Information on transport paths from development to production system is being lost Sensitive data available in test system
SAP AG 2006, 3

Transports need to be closed, released, re-imported after refresh Objects must be transported into Q/A, tested, sent back to development, corr., Repository objects lose their history by copying production to test systems

Extensive authorization checks needed

Solution Approach: SAP Test Data Migration Server Key Features

SAP Test Data Migration Server is the data extraction tool that populates your development and test systems with SAP business data from your live production environment With SAP Test Data Migration Server (TDMS) software you can: Reduce data volume in test systems Apply ready-to-use reduction scenarios Simulate production environment by using real business data Reduce post-processing work by keeping administrative data in target system unchanged (interfaces, users, authorizations, etc.) Perform selective refreshes of individual clients in target system (multi-client systems) Consider implementing a solution that helps you Scramble sensitive data according to your needs to create lean and consistent development and test environments based on real business data Change client and logical system name during transfer

TDMS Carves Out the Business Data and Sends a Reduced Copy to Another System Client-specific migration
Business data is client-specific A single TDMS run migrates one source to one target client

Only a few tables need to be reduced since 10-20% of client-specific tables contain 80-90% of client data All other tables (master data, customizing data, custommade Z tables) are migrated entirely
SAP AG 2006, 8

Fast Data Transfer

Uses Migration Workbench as proven technical basis Migrates data table-wise via RFC connections

Data Reduction Background

Client DB

Data volume reduction

Reduce a small number of tables, since they hold > 80% of the production data volume
80% Transaction Data *

All other tables (master and configuration data) are transferred 1:1 Customer-individual tables are transferred 1:1, or can be reduced, e.g., via time criteria Some tables are excluded from transfer by default, e.g., change documents, etc. (customizable)

10% Master Data * 7% Config. Data * 3 % Admin-Data* * Estimate based on project experience
SAP AG 2006, 9

Data Reduction Scenarios

Choose the data set to be extracted from your production environment Master Data and Configuration (MD/C) Scenario Only master and configuration data without transaction data Time-Based (TIM) Scenario All master and configuration data, and a reduced set of transaction data based on a time limit Individual custom-developed scenario Data selection based on organizational or other criteria

Value to the Customer With TDMS, companies are able to create small and consistent non-productive systems as an extract of their live system
Customers with large systems (size of database) Customers who do their own development and need actual data to do testing in the development system Customers who need to make data anonymous when they leave a productive system Customers who need to refresh clients in non-productive systems selectively Improve quality of customer developments by improving test data quality Saves disk space by reducing data volume in non-productive systems

Target Audience


Stabilization of non-productive systems by not touching administrative data Architecture of TDMS does not depend on releases of productive system and can theoretically be used with all R/3 and ERP systems

7 Key Points to Take Home

Saves disk space of non-production systems Provides current test data to the development environment Focuses on consistency of reduced data TCO reduction by transfer of data between different OS/DB Individual refresh of non-productive clients possible Data scrambling a functionality of TDMS becomes more and more important for customers Version 05 is just the beginning extended functionality will be available in future releases

Value proposition: Storage Reduction

Current situation: Full copy of productive systems to non productive systems means today to copy the whole database n times storage of production Future situation use of TDMS: Only productive systems will grow. Non productive systems stay at a constant database size based on the reduction scenario TDMS use Value of TDMS usage: Cost savings for hardware (storage) Cost savings for less administrative effort

SAP AG 2006, 33

Value proposition: Productive Data in Development Systems Current situation: Development systems contain only garbage data. Developers cant test their developments and must transport developments to Q-systems to test them. Future situation use of TDMS: Development systems will become a small test client, so that developers can do testing in development systems Value of TDMS usage: Better quality of developments due to good data for tests in an early stage of development Cost savings due to less transports in Q-systems for test purposes

SAP AG 2006, 34

Value proposition: Reduce Time for System Adaptation

Current situation: After a full copy of a system a system must be adapted to the requirements of the target system. Interfaces (RFCs), users, authorizations, printers, faxes, must be changed. Often customers have scripts to support this activities, but it takes usually between 2 5 days. Future situation use of TDMS: All administrative data will stay as they are. No RFCs, users and so on are changed. The Non-Productive-System remains unchanged regarding administrative objects. Value of TDMS usage: The time for system adaptation can be reduced by 50%.

SAP AG 2006, 35

Value proposition: Stable Non-Productive-Landscape

Current situation: When a system is copied via System Copy or DB copy, everything is taken from productive. That means all Interfaces are taken as they are and still point to a productive landscape until they are manually changed. Future situation use of TDMS: Since systems are kept as they are and only business data is transferred it cannot happen, that non-productive systems are linked to a productive landscape. Value of TDMS usage: Minimize risk to produce uncontrolled system postings in productive systems
