AARHUS, Denmark, Sept. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- At SAP TechEd 2016 in Las Vegas focus there is a healthy interest in HANA and S/4 HANA. But upgrading to HANA Business Suite or S/4 HANA means cleaning up custom code. Most SAP users will have thousands of lines of erroneous code, but the latest release of Hanalyzer finds exactly the code lines SAP users should concentrate on to save hundreds of days of work.
Zooms in on the Low-Hanging Fruits
When upgrading to HANA, SAP users find themselves buried in mountains of lines of code that need fixing before a HANA upgrade. Hanalyzer can analyze each of their customers' SAP systems, and neatly shows them all issues, where the code is not HANA ready. This commonly produces thousands of results, and fixing all these lines can be a daunting task.
With the latest release of Hanalyzer however, this is changing. Hanalyzer simply analyzes each issue for impact and complexity and collects the issues with high impact and low complexity by development class or info area. At the click of a button, users are presented with a list of the issues that are worth fixing.
Users Save Thousands of Hours
"For a typical ECC system, we find about 30,000 issues," says Joe Strand with Gekkobrain, the company behind Hanalyzer. "We then run a UPL or usage analysis, which will typically cut that to half."
Hanalyzer uses SAP Code Inspector to ensure that all issues are found according to SAP's own best practices. Adding UPL or runtime usage information means that issues in unused programs can be ignored.
"Hanalyzer then runs through the remaining issues to figure out, what kind of complexity is involved and what impact they will have. The analysis is presented in a bubble chart, which shows the user exactly where to start. It will simply collect the issues by development class – or for BW in info areas – so the technical project manager can delegate the tasks to his team right away."
Hanalyzer Ensures Code Hygiene
Some customers use Hanalyzer long before a HANA upgrade is planned, since it helps them get the code clean in good time. Hanalyzer ensures that the code is perfect – also before a HANA upgrade. No matter when you use Hanalyzer, it adds value.
"One of the beauties is that we can use it long before and even after an upgrade," says Sadique Mohammad Regional Manager for Exalogic Consulting, one of Gekkobrain's partners in the MEA region. "Hanalyzer keeps scanning the code, so when new code is introduced later on, Hanalyzer will check to see, if it's still compatible with HANA. It saves us and our customers tremendous amounts of time."
