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.
Sentia uses Splunk to unlock all SAP data and to correlate with other relevant data sources. Using a pre-defined transport, software is delivered containing the unlocking of the datalake. By bringing this to production, organizations can decide for themselves what they find relevant to read out, and thus keep a grip on costs. By using SAP standard functionality for the installation, the implementation of the Sentia SAP monitoring is easy to carry out. The installation is a matter of minutes per SAP system. Sentia then takes care of setting up the Splunk environment, managing it, and visualizing and automating the desired insights.
