Summary of what was covered in the webcast (and the related blogs)
Above is a checklist
What you can do today in your SAP ERP - SCMON, ATC, gain skills in ADT and get familiar with S/4HANA technologies
More mass fixes
Screen shot shows how it looks like
Custom code migration Fiori app, integrates usage analysis app, and run ATC; will get more interesting analysis
Plan in Q1 - custom code service in SAP Cloud Platform - can check your on-premise system
Q: If we don't have a Central ATC system, can we accomplish the same checks in our development system?
A: Only if your development system is on SAP NetWeaver >=7.51 and has S4HANA_READINESS check variant installed, and ATC is configured for local use.
Q: SCMON is avaiable from which version?
A: SCMON is available with SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.50 and for lower releases (>=7.00) per ST-PI Add-on.
Q: Is there any list of functional adaptations (like examples in presentation) that we can start doing without simplification DB or ATC check? This will be just to make sure that some portion of current and new custom code in our ECC 6.0 SP6, will adhere to S/4 HANA when we start getting ready for that implementation in 1-2 years.
It is not that simple J. You need ATC checks in order to detect, if the usage of SAP code in custom code is critical for SAP S/4HANA (you must fix it) or not (you can leave it). Such analysis you get only with ATC checks based on Simplification DB. We recommend to set up ATC checks and check your code during development on regular base for SAP S/4HANA readiness. In this way you would develop “S/4HANA ready” and avoid custom code adaptations after S/4HANA implementation in 1-2 years.
Q: Excellent presentation. I have two questions: 1. Any performance impace of running SCMON in the production system? 2. Can you expand the statement 'consider migrating custom code to SAP cloud platform' (slide 29?
A: 1. The performance impact is not significant: maximum 5% CPU time on the application server
2. If you have in mind some use cases for Cloud with your custom code, you can consider moving such custom code applications to SAP Cloud Platform ABAP Environment
Q: Is Eclipse provided with S4/HANA, or is it an extra?
Q: I remember hearing in SAP TechEd 2018 that ATC will come on SAP cloud platform to use instead installing it in landscape for system readiness check. Is there any timeline for that?
A: This is Custom Code Analysis Fiori App (see slides 31, 32 of the presentation), which is expected to be delivered on SAP Cloud Platform within Q1/2019
Q: Do ONLY need to use Eclipse based ABAP IDE connected to HANA system for auto correct ? That is it is not available in ABAP stack on ECC ?
A: Currently we provide Eclipse-based auto corrections only for SAP S/4HANA use cases, therefore you need SAP S/4HANA system. It is still possible to correct custom code with ABAP Workbench (SE80) but there are no auto corrections (see slide 22 of the presentation)
Q: We have activatd UPL in ECC this time. Is it possible to migrate UPL-data to SCMON? We want to analyse all data in SolMan in one area.
A: Generally the Solution Manager 7.20 collects either UPL or SCMON data depending whether the connected system is capable of SCMON or UPL. It is also possible to extract the SCMON data into Solution Manager BW. The existing already collected UPL data get also imported into Solution Manager BW and simply mixed with the new SCMON data.
