STARTER PACKAGE

Best way to start over!
With our starter package we offer a great option to implement our product(s) in your company environment. We prefer to start with an initialization workshop to understand your requirements, talking on the same level at the same language. We install the product(s) on your system and do the basic configuration on SAP and Alfresco. You will see the simplicity of the installation and even the configuration. Our comprehensive manuals will help you to implement future scenarios by your own.

A note to the Starter Package: Based on my experience with our valued customers, this package offers the best way to start with our products on customer side.

The Starter Package includes:

  1. Initialization Workshop

    The goal of the workshop is to get a detailed view of the environment, the needs of the customer, inform the customer about the connexas software details and prepare the implementation.

  2. Installation & Configuration

    The connexas software will be installed on the customer development environment and the SAP – Alfresco communication will be validated. As a requirement for the installation, all necessary prerequisites (mentioned in our pre-requisites document) should match before.

  3. Configuring Scenarios

    Depending on the connexas software used, the following scenarios will be covered:
    connexas content: Store finance documents via SAP in Alfresco, replicate default default SAP meta-data to Alfresco and display documents in SAP and Alfresco.
    connexas frontend: Run APS workflow in SAP Fiori.

  4. Final Workshop

    The implemented scenarios are explained and tested. The results and future scenarios will be discussed.

The Starter Package is available for the following products:



 

 

ADDITIONAL META-DATA REPLICATION

One step beyond SAP default meta-data!
Is connexas content or connexas process already successfully up and running? Now you are struggling with the fact, that you have to introduce or to adapt new business-processes which requires additional meta-data from SAP? Or maybe business-cases has changed over time?
We can help you to manage this requirement on a project base and extend your current integration to replicate any additional meta-data that will match the new requirements.

This packages includes (dependent on use-case):

  1. Adapting Alfresco Content Services

    Implementing a new Alfresco job that invokes one SAP standard function module to replicate additional meta-data. The meta-data (up to 10) retrieved from the SAP function call will be matched with the Alfresco aspects keeping the meta-data on Alfresco side.

  2. Adapting Alfresco Process Services

    Enhance the Alfresco Process Services API to invoke another SAP function module and enable additional meta-data in the workflow.

  3. Fixed Price Arrangement

    We deliver the above mentioned by a fixed rate on a project basis.

  4. Documentation

    The implementation as well as the configuration will be documented.

The additional meta-data replication is available for the following products:



 

 

MIGRATION TOOL

Still a question: What about … the legacy data?
Are you planning to migrate documents from existing content repositories in SAP to Alfresco Content Services?

SOFFCONT1 Migration & Cleanup



Challenge

Many enterprises use document management options available in SAP standard – documents are stored via “Services for Object” (GOS menu), “Create” and “Create Attachment”:

 

With SAP standard, these documents are stored to SAP tables (in the database), typically in table SOFFCONT1 or even in *ASRCONT* (like ASRCONT03, T5ASRCONT01, …) while they are growing significantly over the years of usage which will result in:

  • Big tables

  • Bad performance

  • Long backup times

  • Problems during SAP upgrades

  • Show stoppers for the migration to SAP HANA (big table for migration and operation)

  • High costs for storage (SAP DB is an expensive place to store documents!)

The aim is to reduce the size/entries of SOFFCONT1 significantly to get rid of the above mentioned Problems and keep the documents accessible to the end users.



Solution Overview

Our smart solution “SAP SOFFCONT1 Migration and Cleanup” offers an easy to implement and robust operation approach for the reduction of these tables, especially SOFFCONT1!

 

How it works: Currently the documents are stored via the SAP standard “Services for Object”, “Create Attachment” in SAP table SOFFCONT1. These attachments will be moved out of the SAP table and stored in external storage system, e. g. Alfresco or SAP Content Server and are still accessible in SAP. Beside, we also offer our Migration Tool and related services to move attachments from SAP database to Alfresco.

Two migration scenarios are available:

  1. Migrate SOFFCONT1 attachments to ArchiveLink
  2. Migrate SOFFCONT1 attachments to other category

Both migration scenarios are executed in the following steps:

  1. Copy attachment to Alfresco
  2. Delete links e. g. to business object
  3. Delete entry in SOFFCONT1

The selection of the migration option will be discussed based on the customers SAP set up and future needs.

Please see our Migration Tool details for more Information on the migration process.



Display documents after migration

The display of the migrated documents is in both options nearly the same: Only the “type of document” has changed, the document/information looks the same.
