    • ALM 107RSLaF - Methodology
    • The ApproachSAP’s Run SAP like a Factory (RSLaF) approach addresses these challenges of operatingSAP-centric IT solutions by providing: an Operations Control Center (OCC) which ensures central visibility about all exceptions, incidents and work drivers both for real-time alert handling and for improvement processes live video integration of key suppliers such as SAP into the customer Operations Control Center automated monitoring of critical components and business processes a framework for documenting essential regular admin tasks with guided procedures for their execution optimization processes to ensure continuous improvement of service levels and business process execution quality.The high degree of automation ensures that the right tasks are being performed in the rightway and that significant exceptions are recognized and reported early.© 2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 5
    • Motivation for Run SAP like a FactoryBenefits & Challenges Goal Benefit Challenge …get central insight if business processes work as expected and all IT Global transparency for business landscape components are operating with best performance – via expert processes and IT landscape components monitors and overview dashboards. Transparency ... document, standardize and automate administrative tasks and Reduced IT support process costs procedures. Introduce analysis support by Guided Procedures. Efficiency …identify, analyze, and correct severe problem areas and negative business Higher end user satisfaction & faster performance trends, by introducing a continuous optimization process, which business processes is part of Problem Management (re-active / pro-active). Optimization …ensure that issues are automatically detected and reported 24x7, to make Identify issues before the business is support experts work on these even before end users are reporting an impacted incident. Pro-Activeness …come to a more stable business solution (end-to-end), by orchestrating Smooth & reliable processing of core technical and business process related monitors into a central support business processes environment (including Non-SAP). Stability© 2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 6

    • The Central Monitors / DashboardsThe central monitors / Dashboards: Address key operational pain points customer may have – because they are designed per customer, tailored to customer specific operational needs. Provide full transparency about the status of the core business processes and the IT landscape. Are running in auto-refresh mode, and presented on large screens in the Operations Control Center. Turn to red – meaning trigger alerts - in case of major business exceptions and technical problems. Are the first tools technical operators work with, in case of alerts. Are enriched by reporting functionality and dashboards, to provide detailed information to all IT support levels.SAP Solution Manager 7.1 is the foundation for the central monitors,as well as the monitoring infrastructure behind. 3rd party informationcan be integrated.© 2012 SAP AG. All rights reserved. 8
    • Continuous OptimizationThe continuous optimization process: Analyzes and documents the root cause of major incidents (coming from the incident management process), or negative indicators / trends / events (coming from the central monitors). Once the root cause is clear, the optimization process determines and documents if and how the root cause can be solved. In case there are no realistic solving options, the optimization process looks for improvement potential for the central monitors, to be able to detect the same in future ideally before the business is impacted. Finally the appropriate change procedure is being Restore/Improve Service Act triggered. In case of an improvement proposal of the central Plan monitors, a new Run SAP like a Factory project might be triggered.Overall, the customer will gain a significant Studyand continuous improvement in software and DoIT service quality.© 2012 SAP AG.

    • Standardized Event Management Process In case alert reason cannot be solved: Operator converts alert into incident and passes alert to next Data suppliers of the monitoring Infrastructure level support for processing automatically analysis the components of the SAP Solution 24x7. Monitoring data is being sent to SAP Solution Manager for display, storage, alerting and reporting. In case alert reason can be solved: Operator completes alert Act Measure Alert consumer collector in SAP Solution Manager decides on alert generation. Technical Operator evaluates further status and history information Analyze Notification is being sent, alert appears in the central alert inbox Guided procedure can be raised for running a first Alert Technical Operator opens alert inbox analysis. and takes ownership on alert Alert documentation describes Technical Operator groups related alerts alert context© 2012 SAP AG.

    • Why Does an OCC Drive Operational Efficiency?ExamplesAutomation Pro-activeness: Detect problems before the business is impacted Automated and alert-based monitoring, 24x7, without manual effort Automatically react on alerts (e.g. Via guided procedures; Converting very important alerts into incidents)Simplicity Standardized central tool set, w/ same look & feel. Standardized administrative processes (e.g. Always start from the alerts in the alert inbox; Always use guided procedures).Stability Centrally monitor the status of the business processes, and all important IT landscape components. Be immediately aware of business data inconsistencies (e.g. By using the Exception Management Cockpit).Control Getting transparency what is going in your solution (e.g. By having a central point of control; user-specific dashboards) Getting better continuously (e.g. better IT service quality, more major incidents solved, better monitoring)© 2012 SAP AG.
