SAP defined project team
Functional design and architecture analysis and functional gap assessment
The Schmersal Group, the international market and competence leader in machine safety, benefits from the progressive automation, because this increases the demand for safety technology. Machines and equipment are becoming more complex, robots are increasingly collaborating directly with their human counterparts, and the world is becoming more aware that functional safety and occupational safety are essential factors for business success. Schmersal offers the world's largest range of safety switchgear and systems for machines, systems and lift technology. Founded in 1945 in Wuppertal, Schmersal currently employs about 1,850 people in over 20 countries.
To ensure the communication of the ABAP systems also for the future, the SAP has provided the note 2738426. This includes a guide for configuring the new communication channels. Timely implementation is strongly recommended to avoid later inconvenience. All customers with SAP Solution Manager 7.1 are also strongly advised to make the transition to SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS08 at an early stage.

Comprehensive Hybrid Operation
In case of support requests for SAP standard functions, it is sometimes necessary to consult with SAP solution developers. Other requests still require access to the solution's backend. In this third escalation stage, our specialists consult SAP Support. Adjustments / developments on the part of SAP are initiated - always with the aim of fixing the malfunction as quickly as possible.
SAP systems that are directly connected to SAP must use a technical communication user. This must be applied for separately from SAP. It is also necessary to update the ST-PI and ST-A/P add-ons. See the SAP FAQ on this topic.
Some missing SAP support functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
We expect a lot to happen in this area in the next few years.
You may not have the necessary manpower or internal skills to provide solutions to all potential problems.
