Even go beyond monitoring with SAPITPA enhanced incident response capabilities .Ensure SLA levels will be supportedSAP ITPA automates administrative and health check routines forSAP HANA and source systems! For instance, SAP ITPA canproactively detect issues before the business knows that datahasn’t been propagated to key reports.Resolve issues automaticallyWhen data stops flowing, SAP HANA isn’t serving the business.When authorization errors occur or data replication fails from asource system, users are impacted. Instead, leverage SAP ITPAto automatically detect, resolve, and restart failed processes.SAP IT Process Automation (ITPA) by CiscoAchieve SAP HANA Operational Best Practices through AutomationLower Your TCO and Reduce Risk:•  Business disruptions when critical piece of thelandscape goes down.•  Critical server slow down or a replication processtakes down source database.•  Painful and time consuming manual processes toproblem identification and return back to stablestate after an system outage.•  Higher unplanned downtime and lost businessopportunity.Automate Best Practicesfrom Day 1!

All rights reserved. 13SAP IT Process Automation by CiscoImplements HANA Best Practices “Day-1”HANA Best Practices:  Enables customers starting out on HANA tostart with HANA best practices—from Day 1instead of learning them as they go.This is important because:•  HANA is very different from Oracle orDB2, and there is a learning curve.•  HANA is new, and the large pool ofDBA talent that’s available fortraditional databases isn’t available forHANA yet.  ITPA identifies and fixes problems beforethey impact the business. This includesuser errors, such as poorly constructedqueries.
