Why SAP performance analysis of your systems is important is obvious: only with good response times can users be motivated and work efficiently. A slow SAP system leads to downtime and the frustration that comes with it. If performance is too poor, in the worst case it can also have negative consequences for the business: Overtime, delays or monetary losses can result.

In many companies, delays in important processes, such as month-end closing, can be very negative. As a result, questions often arise such as, “What happens if the month-end closing is not completed on time?”

To avoid these uncertainties, we recommend that companies look into SAP performance analysis at an early stage.

What is SAP Performance Analysis?

Because SAP Performance Analysis is a useful tool that can help companies optimize their performance and identify potential problems before they become major challenges. The analysis comprises five steps that build on each other and, taken together, provide a comprehensive overview of a company’s SAP systems.

Phases of performance analysis:

  1. Understanding the business processes
  2. Definition of performance goals
  3. Monitoring and analysis
  4. Optimization
  5. Verification and reporting of results

At a minimum, basic performance analysis should be performed at the time of go-live, after upgrades, when the number of users increases, or after larger amounts of data are transferred. In addition, performance indicators should be monitored on an ongoing basis.

Systematic, proactive performance optimization significantly increases the benefits of your business application.

At the same time, we also know that proactive performance optimization is wishful thinking. IT departments usually have too much to do to continue analyzing a system that is still running well in itself. For this reason, we are happy to help you and are not only responsible for SAP performance analysis, but also support you in the event of acute problems. We then show you how to keep the performance stable in the long term before an impact on the business occurs.
