Revitalize your SAP environment: tailored data solutions with refresh  services

Get in touch today to explore how Refresh as a Service can support your organization in maintaining current and streamlined SAP test and development data while ensuring data security protocols are upheld.

What is Refresh as a Service (RaaS)?

Refresh as a Service (RaaS) is a managed data refresh service from EPI-USE that allows SAP customers to purchase a package with a specialized number of refreshes or system rebuilds to suit business requirements. Data refreshes span a number of modules, including SAP HCM, ERP, BW, CRM, SRM, SCM, and GTS.

RaaS is provided to address a wide range of scenarios, including refreshing a non-production SAP client to facilitate testing with data that mirrors the production environment after support pack updates or upgrades, refreshing and replicating new data for training objectives, or creating a leaner SAP system for temporary sandboxes or proof-of-concept initiatives. 

How we can help

RaaS is a flexible solution that can be tailored to your unique needs. Here are some examples of how Refresh as a Service can help you achieve your business goals.

Benefits of a data refresh

Data-driven organizations need the most up-to-date data to power to make the most informed decisions based on the best available insights. That all starts with good data hygiene, in which data refresh plays a big role. Here are some of the biggest benefits you get from a data refresh:

  • Access to the most up-to-date data. Old data may contain inaccuracies. A data refresh helps maintain data integrity in non-production systems by updating old data with newer data.
  • Better experience for end business users. We live in a fast-paced world. To remain nimble and competitive, end business users need access to the most current data in non-production systems to test new business processes.
  • Improved system performance. Freshening up your data can help you optimize system performance by boosting the efficiency of your dataflows.
  • Peace of mind. Rest assured knowing you won’t risk interrupting business operations by safely moving real SAP data into non-production systems for new application testing.
