Hi Dario Di Spirito,
Very helpful insight. Quick question though.
We are already on CCA1.0. What kind of effort is involved in migrating to CCA2.0 from CCA1.0?
Thank you for your message.
Please be aware, that SAP Solution Manager custom code analytics 1.0 and 2.0 are based on different procedures and data pools, as briefly mentioned in the article published here.
Whereas 1.0 uses the existing data from SAP Solution Manager, including the usage history in SAP Solution Manager, 2.0 uses SAP EarlyWatch Alert data directly from the system.
So the question is, why do you want to move and what is the expectation of the move?
In the meantime, the following SAP Notes 2947886 - Getting started with Custom Code Analytics based on EWA is a good starting point, as well as this blog article that could also help you to clarify your doubts on this topic.
I hope that this information is going to help you.
