A unique SAP process monitoring solution
For many organisations, SAP is the basis for their business operations. Insight into the functioning of primary processes in which SAP is involved, is therefore essential. Current SAP monitoring solutions are often time-consuming and costly to implement, offer limited dashboard and reporting features, and provide too little information about business processes. With SAP PowerConnect, Sentia offers a unique SAP performance and business process monitoring solution that enables end-to-end insights into SAP and other technologies.See video

How does it work?
Sentia uses Splunk to unlock your SAP data and correlate it with other relevant data sources. When using predefined transport, software is delivered with a built-in option for data lake. By deploying this to production, organizations can decide for themselves what they find relevant to extract and therefore keep a firm grip on costs. By using SAP standard functionality for the installation, the implementation of Sentia SAP monitoring is easy to perform. The installation takes just a few minutes per SAP system and Sentia takes care of setting up the Splunk environment, handling and visualization as well as automating the desired insights.
The most important result of SAP PowerConnect is transparency over SAP business chains. By understanding SAP data and combining existing Application Performance Monitoring insights, the functionality of business processes can be made fully transparent. An advantage is that all information can be retrieved so that an analysis opportunity is never missed. Data correlation that goes beyond SAP makes the business as a whole transparent. This means insight into wall-to-wall processes; streamlined handling and reporting of the SAP landscape; visualization of SAP monitoring data in 1 dashboard and alerting.
