Libelle AG Suttgart, Germany
Automation reduces downtimes, manual effort, and thus also the dependence on specialists.
The quality of the copy remains the same for every process due to templates for SAP® R/3® and SAP S/4HANA®.
Get an expert
Libelle SystemCopy runs fully automated using predefined standard templates with all pre- and post-processing, including all typical activities such as BDLS handling, indices, and transport queues.
Quickly and securely integrated into any SAP® environment and through automation, task parallelisation as well as optimisation of the BDLS run, the processing time is massively reduced.
Libelle SystemCopy supports all common operating and database systems. Our software offers you a copying procedure, which you can also easily replace with your own if desired. Further tools for anonymizing your test data can also be integrated.
With our software, you receive your first system copy within a few days. Due to our standard templates, Libelle SystemCopy is installed quickly, and the effort of a system copy is reduced from several days to a few hours. This means you can also carry out a system copy spontaneously and do not have to plan it months in advance.
How it works
Our software can be installed on your system without any issues. We do not change your source system, but simply implement Libelle SystemCopy on the target system. With our supplied wizard, you can do this per system independently or with our help in a few minutes. It is not necessary to change the SAP or database systems.
Step 1: Inspection
Before triggering a system copy, we make sure that it can be carried out smoothly. In the check phase, Libelle SystemCopy checks, among other things, the availability of the systems, the presence of sufficient space, and the release version information between the source and target systems. This diligent work is important to identify and prevent avoidable interruptions to the automated processes. Thus, nothing stands in the way of an overnight system copy.
Step 2: Preparation
We go one step further to maintain the high quality of Libelle's system copy. The pre-phase optimally prepares the target system for the takeover of the real data. Libelle SystemCopy saves information that must not be overwritten and stops running schedulers, backup jobs, and the like so as not to interrupt the refresh process. In the last step of the preparation, the active SAP components of the target system are then stopped.
Step 3: System copy
With this thorough preparation, the execution of the system or landscape copy only consists of starting and monitoring the process. The copy phase now completely replaces the data of the target system with that of the source system and changes the name of the database (SID).
Libelle SystemCopy allows you to use different tools here, but also offers you the perfect add-on right away with Libelle BusinessShadow®.
Step 4: Follow-up
The post-phase includes, among other things, the adjustment of pre-configured parameterizations, the activation of the information saved during the pre-phase, and ensuring the correct SAP license. Here, too, Libelle SystemCopy offers concrete possibilities for significantly reducing throughput times. After post-processing, the system copy is ready and you can release the target system for your users again.

How much does Libelle SystemCopy speed up my system copy?
Does the system copy run completely on its own?
Is there any communication to external servers outside my company?
Communication only takes place between the servers defined in the configuration. Libelle SystemCopy does not contact any external servers and therefore no internet access is required for using our software.
