Webinar: eliminating bottlenecks in SAP app development

Delphix is an innovative data platform. Delphix automates and orchestrates data flows across the enterprise for faster and more secure access to data – on-premise and in the cloud. One of the core concepts of Delphix to achieve this is the so-called “DataPod”.

A DataPod gives developers, testers, or data analysts access to a personalised data environment that they can version in minutes, reset to a previous time, or update with masked data from production using self-service capabilities.

What you will learn in this webinar:

• How can SAP environments be cloned within minutes?
• How can the downtimes in SAP System Refreshes be minimised?
• How can the data be masked in the context of an SAP system refresh?
• How can the SAP non-production environments be migrated to the cloud?

Version 3 of SAP Advanced SQL Migration is now available

SAP’s Advanced SQL Migration tool greatly simplifies migration of custom applications to SAP, removing as much as 90% of complexities. Version 3 has just been released.


SAP Advanced SQL Migration supports the following source DBMS types:
• Oracle; versions 9, 10, 11
• Microsoft SQL Server; version 2000s – 2012
• IBM DB2 UDB for LUW; version 9.x (NB: PL/SQL-compatible extensions are not actively migrated, although some aspects may be converted correctly)
• Teradata, version 14 or later Note: Teradata can only be migrated to SAP Hana
For all of these source DBMS types, later (or earlier) versions than listed above have not been actively tested. The migration tool may however still work for such versions, or work partially.
Currently, the following target DBMS types and -versions are supported:
  • • SAP Hana 2 SP03 Rev31 (or later) – generating Hana SQL/SQLScript syntax
  • • SAP ASE version 16 SP03 (or later) – generating ASE T-SQL syntax
  • • SAP IQ version 16.1 (or later) – generating Watcom SQL syntax
  • • SAP SQL Anywhere version 17 – generating Watcom SQL syntax
