IT management solutions for orchestration, management and automation play a central role in every ERP environment. Only with such specialized software is it possible to manage, control, log, monitor and ultimately control IT landscapes, systems and ERP components seamlessly and in line with requirements. However, the solutions currently in use are getting on in years and often no longer meet current requirements in terms of function and technology as well as automation capability and modern ease of use.

Help for base teams

It is well known that certain special features have to be taken into account in SAP landscapes, particularly against the background of IT management. The SAP base teams, which are often understaffed, are called upon to ensure the availability of the entire SAP landscape in a company as optimally as possible.

The many challenges facing SAP Basis in this regard have been incorporated into a solution of the latest generation from Empirius called Epos. The abbreviation stands for "Empirius Planning and Operations Suite" and, according to the company, helps SAP Basis with a high level of automation in the administration, orchestration and management of SAP landscapes. And it does so in a flexible and demand-oriented manner.

For SAP and Non-SAP

All information about an SAP IT infrastructure as well as about individual SAP systems can be displayed in overview and in detail. This information can be accessed to perform tasks and actions on the different SAP systems. Tasks and actions can be, for example, the execution of SAP kernel patches, rolling out authorization objects, adjustments to SAP profile settings and much more.

Individual structure

The deep SAP context knowledge stems in particular from BlueCopy - the automation tool for SAP system copies from Empirius - which always focuses on the interaction of the SAP application as well as the database usage or the entire IT infrastructure, for example operating systems etc.. In addition, Epos can also take into account non-SAP systems in an existing IT infrastructure and perform automations there.

Epos has a modular structure and can be easily extended by existing SAP customers and adapted to customer-specific requirements and needs. In the course of the simple extensibility, standard script languages can also be used for own automation processes. The knowledge and provision of all information about the SAP infrastructure in Epos can also be used to extend existing automation processes.
scripts, such as monitoring, reporting, etc.

As with all Empirius solutions, the use of Epos demonstrably minimizes manual activities or manual scripting in the SAP Basis area, which saves time and costs. At the same time, secured and automated processes significantly increase the quality in the SAP Basis area. To achieve this, Empirius has incorporated its many years of knowledge and contextual know-how about SAP and all SAP databases into Epos: from Oracle to SAP ASE to - last but not least - Hana.
