Better than ever: Control-M for SAP 9 announced!

This week, at the 2016 SAP TechEd event in Barcelona, BMC announced Control-M for SAP 9, a product re-launch with multiple new features to help companies deal with lists of applications and platforms that need to be managed and integrated with their SAP ecosystem.

Roughly 30 percent of Control-M customers use Control-M for SAP.

Optimize SAP environments with Control-M 

Control-M for SAP is the simple alternative to scripting and managing S/4HANA, R/3 and other jobs. Control-M manages the dependencies between SAP activities and non-SAP tasks like file transfers and database access and Application Integrator allows for support for any application in the SAP ecosystem

The latest version of Control-M for SAP now supports SAP Financial Closing cockpit (FCc), allowing customers to manage the month-end close process with Control-M, which reduces the amount of manual effort required to perform month-end close.

New features and functionality include:

  1. Added S/4HANA support
  2. Use HANA without the need for custom scripts via Control-M for Databases
  3. Application Integrator enables any application used in an SAP ecosystem to work with Control-M
  4. Enables the management and automation of SAP PI channels
  5. Now supports SAP Financial Closing Cockpit (FCc)

Here’s what Eaton is saying about this latest version:

“Control-M provides Eaton with outstanding uptime and helps us do business in over 170 countries worldwide,” said Larry E. Hicks, manager, data center services, IT infrastructure, Eaton. “Our major ERP Systems are SAP, Oracle, and MFGPRO. We are very pleased with the Control-M performance and ability to be a single workload automation solution. We would also acknowledge the BMC support for newer technologies such as SAP S/4HANA, Oracle R12, Managed File Transfer, Web Service Client, and Hadoop. We are confident Control-M will be able to support our environment as we move forward.”

Customers both new and old can take advantage of the re-launched Control-M for SAP when it becomes generally available in late December.
