Automated Solutions from smartShift Technologies Optimize Systems to Run on SAP HANA®

smartShift Technologies Announces Newest Solution for Code Optimization, in Support of SAP® Solutions, at SAPPHIRE® NOW 


Orlando, Fla., May 14, 2013 – smartShift Technologies, a cloud transformation company, today announced its latest solution to help businesses optimize their SAP®-based systems to run on the SAP HANA® platform. Named smartScale, this new solution has been developed to enable developers, development leads and project managers to quickly adapt custom ABAP®-based code to benefit from the revolutionary features of SAP HANA. Similar to its sister product, smartUpgrade, smartScale is developed by using its proven methodology of automatically remediating upgrade issues in the code, and is armed with specific rules to make code compatible with SAP HANA.  smartShift Technologies is exhibiting smartScale in booth 2031 at SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference being held in Orlando May 14-16.

SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA improves the value of information by accelerating the speed of delivery with real-time business analytics and transactions into one single platform with improved accuracy. While the standard SAP Business Suite applications have been optimized and redesigned to take advantage of the SAP HANA platform, customers still have large amounts of custom developed code that will be required to be adapted for full optimization. Combined with the smartAnalyze product, smartScale offers businesses a risk-free and fast way to implement Unicode enablement and custom code optimization for SAP HANA. smartAnalyze examines custom ABAP code and automatically detects source code pattern and code issues. Once issues are detected, smartScale automatically fixes up to 90 percent of the issues in less than thirty days, enabling business systems to take advantage of the speed and architecture of the column-based architecture.

An in-depth education on smartScale’s sister products smartUpgrade and smartUnicode will be presented by smartShift Technologies at SAPPHIRE® NOW and the ASUG Annual Conference in session 0713, titled Automated ABAP Optimization for Technical Upgrades and Unicode Enablement. Chris Hanshew, solution architect at smartShift Technologies and the presenter of this topic, stated, “Similar to our successful products smartUpgrade and smartUnicode, smartScale has proven to speed up the project delivery significantly. Due to its predictable planning and mostly automated conversion process, project managers will be thrilled about this development.”

smartShift Technologies is a member of the SAP Consulting Partner Program in North America and its code-discovery capabilities are available through the SAP Upgrade Assessment service delivered by SAP Services in North America. Named in a report by Gartner as “Cool Vendor in the SAP Ecosystem, 2012” for its automatic ABAP-based correction solutions, the company strives to develop innovative solutions for successful business management integrations.

Recently, the company changed its name from smartShift to smartShift Technologies. The new name reflects the company’s dual vision of being a cloud transformation company helping clients adopt the capabilities offered by the cloud, as well as being an automated tools-based solutions provider in ERP and legacy systems. The continuous growth of the company has enabled the company to expand its scope of products and services to help customers now plan, transform, build, scale, and manage technology and business architecture on the cloud.
