The plan went up: Salt Solutions provided Schmersal with an employee who, together with the IT team on site in Wuppertal, took over part of the tasks of AMS and support for SAP. The result was a significant relief for the Schmersal IT team in day-to-day business. The transition to the support team of Salt Solutions in Würzburg was launched parallel to the rollout in China.
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.
Tools such as "Shortcut for SAP Systems" are extremely useful for SAP support.
Schmersal uses numerous SAP products, including SAP ERP for business process control, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) or SAP Netweaver Business Intelligence (BI, formerly BW) warehouse management software.
