For ERP administrators today, security is always on their mind. But, recent warnings from the US Department of Homeland Security about ERP vulnerabilities make securing your Oracle and SAP applications even more urgent. Data breaches and unauthorized access can disrupt business-critical processes and negatively impact your customers. Staying up-to-date with security patches is the best way to make sure this doesn’t happen to your organization, but good protocol requires that you first test patches against a separate test instance of SAP to confirm that they won’t impact operations of your production instance.
So, how can you speed up testing and implement these important patches as soon as they’re available? Automating the SAP system copy process is one way to clear the path of the obstacles that keep you from better security.
