Our SAP support gives you time and space
All backbone connections to SAP will be switched from January 1, 2020, as SAP has announced on its support page. Afterwards, communication between ABAP System and SAP will only take place via secure HTTPS connections, for which a dedicated user must also be requested in the Support Portal. In all ABAP systems, SAP hints can no longer be obtained via SNOTE via the old OSS RFC connection. The shipment of Early Watch Alerts to SAP is also affected by this change. Here the shipping route must also be changed to the new HTTPS standard. There is also a great need for action for all SAP customers without a current SAP Solution Manager. In the future, SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS08 (SPS07 only with additional information) will be required here. For all older releases, communication with SAP will also be impossible from January 2020. This primarily affects the data in the Maintenance Planner, which are then no longer synchronised. This then indirectly affects all future maintenance projects where the use of the Maintenance Planner is indispensable. Especially with regard to upcoming S/4 HANA migrations, this represents a risk to be avoided.
Especially with ITSM, a lot of emphasis is placed on non-disruptive, uncomplicated processes. ITSM processes live on automation and speed. However, they are often hindered and ineffective in these properties by the presence of an SAP parallel universe. But this is also different: SAP and ITSM can co-exist smoothly through SAP-ITSM integration and intelligent automation. In order to achieve this, one does not have to throw everything established overboard and introduce an all-encompassing ITSM tool, but simply integrate intelligent apps into the existing one.
