SAP HANA ERP Upgrades using impact analysis software LiveCompare from Intellicorp
Today I’m going to share with you THREE ways you can get your SAP HANA project off to a great start this year. 
1 – Prepare.
Use  LiveCompare to get up-to-date on Enhancement packs and support packs. Identify the impact of change fast and ensure zero defects on go-live.

LiveCompare will help you understand the technical aspects of the migration, from impacted custom code to user training needs.
Our LiveModel software will help you understand the impact on your business processes.
We have you covered through the five key stages of any upgrade – development, testing, integration, security and training

2 – Sizing and infrastructure.
Data sizing is a really important part of your upgrade. The aim is to reduce the amount of data you have without compromising system performance. Use LiveCompare to assess your data and understand what you actually need vs. what can be retired
Understand how much memory is required for a move to SAP HANA. Minimizing and optimizing your data will enable you to maintain healthy systems moving forward.

3 - Custom Development.
Our benchmark studies show that 28% of business process functionality is custom. An upgrade is the perfect time to get a grip of your SAP custom code.
Use LiveCompare to analyse code, answering questions such as: What custom code can be retired? And how complex is custom code and what is its quality?

“Using LiveCompare enabled us to reduce the time it took to migrate to SAP HANA. LiveCompare gave us the confidence that everything had been covered and we had not put our systems at risk.”
