The Benefits in Splunk for SAP
As an essential ERP software, SAP has strict retention guidelines to keep production environments functioning efficiently. It also has a standard schema for transactions that allow for maximum compatibility for more than 500.000 of the world’s top enterprises. This means that the range of traditional reporting options for crucial security and performance-related data is limited, which makes Splunk’s schema-on-read capabilities a game-changer for SAP’s SAP ecosystem.

We’ve seen SAP teams discover the information they didn’t even realize existed. In just a few hours or two of examining information in Splunk Our customers have discovered an individual with extremely elevated permissions, a configuration problem that is causing the pesky middleware issues which have been popping up for the past six months, and even basic problems like abnormally large numbers of users who have access to a development system.
The transparency Splunk gives can have major effects on the company.
For instance, our team worked with a Fortune 100 manufacturer that narrowly avoided the possibility of an SAP P1 downtime because of a poorly constructed SQL statement. The ability of Splunk to connect the data generated by work applications table locks as well as the custom SQL statements in the level of the database real-time prevented the client from suffering an unplanned outage. Forty minutes before the first warning sign the operation team was alerted and was able to pinpoint and resolve the issue before it escalated into an outage that was complete which is not available with their standard monitoring system.
An outage in one instance can cost companies more than $200,000 an hour. In order to eliminate SAP P1-related events has been the top priority for everyone from the end-users up to the CEO.
