No data inconsistencies between components
SAP Solutions deals with data exchange among multiple systems in order to cover all core business processes.
Keeping all master and transaction data consistent in hybrid environment with On Premise, SaaS cloud, SAP Cloud Platform components is a very challenging task due to the multiple communication channels like inbound-outbound queues, iDocs and Web Services.
SAP provides with Cross-Database Comparison as part of Data Consistency Management (DCM) a generic approach to compare database content of different business systems with each other based on business rules validation.
It compares data sources from different systems to check whether the data in the source and target systems is consistent. (ex: Check if updates an ERP system have been correctly replicated to a CRM system for sales orders with several billing items or a customer master record containing multiple addresses, …)
Exception management centrally monitors business-critical exceptions in your system landscape.
