Lecture ALM213 will introduce how to automate the execution and evaluation of consistency check reports, i.e. making them part of your Business Process and Interface Monitoring. Certain Alerts for particular Alert Types (Key Figures) relevant for Data Consistency can be configured and displayed in an own view inside the Business Process Operations Work Center. Automation and Management-by-Exception avoids the manual execution of reports again and again. Autoreactions like email notifications or incident messages are possible in case of incidents detected.
