During a 7-month period, the COOP Group deployed Panaya for the upgrade. The system went live on schedule and was completed in the projected timeframe and budget.
According to Panaya’s pretest analysis, there would be three times more support packs patched to the system than with the previous upgrade. Upgrading to EHP7, 827 support packs were imported, as compared to the 269 required by the EHP5 project.
After COOP went live, all critical errors were eliminated. Its development department was able to start the corrections immediately after the first modification adjustment.
Furthermore, they were able to delete some old programs that weren’t necessary anymore.
Of 181,407 references in the SAP system in total, Panaya recommended implementation of 31,011 indications. This way the corrections could be realized in a more targeted manner. Since many corrections could be realized before test clearance, some follow-up actions were unnecessary. Examples included additional developments and tests.
