Improvements to My Organization

The PoC for a new business area was not covered by the management reporting platform (controlling of IT processes).

  • Built-in monitoring of ETLs (there was no advanced tool for monitoring, planning and evaluation ETLs), I work with SAP BW (i.e. RSMO, RSPCM, ST13 transactions), of course there was an option to have additional expert tool but for a lot of additional money
  • Formatted reporting (PDF and export to Excel) - if necessary compile aggregate export to PDF document was not allowed to draw and do parameterized output compile or schedule it as a job with an appropriate distribution to the responsible user group, custom printing to PDF or Excel did not correspond to reality/original
