SANTA CLARA, California, November 18 /PRNewswire/ --

- Intelligent Impact Analysis Software Eliminates SAP Project and Operational Challenges

IntelliCorp, a worldwide provider of application lifecycle management, business process and data management software for SAP users, today announced the availability of LiveCompare(TM) 2.1, the latest version of its unique intelligent impact analysis software for SAP. LiveCompare revolutionizes how SAP customers manage lifecycle activities by empowering them with a 'do-it-yourself-tool' to automate every step of system analysis. LiveCompare reduces SAP maintenance costs by at least 30 percent, while eliminating production errors and increasing system efficiency.

IntelliCorp's software was one of the easiest implementations I've experienced and the company was very responsive, recalled Andy Millward, business analyst responsible for SAP projects at Bentley Motors. Bentley was able to quickly and automatically obtain essential SAP system information to speed an upgrade project, when it would have taken months of manually scrutinizing the environment to understand its configuration, custom code and data.

With LiveCompare, every change, object and dependency is automatically analyzed. LiveCompare's zero-impact analysis engine drills down to the SAP DNA to eliminate the overwhelming task of manual analysis. No other solution effectively compares the as is and to be systems, or dives as deeply to perform automatic and accurate SAP analysis.

SAP customers are spending an ever increasing percentage of their SAP IT budget on maintenance, which leaves very little room for innovation, explained Christopher Trueman, CTO for IntelliCorp. LiveCompare revolutionizes SAP ownership by automating time consuming manual analysis, freeing up resources to focus on how to better use SAP software to support unique business requirements.

LiveCompare Increases the Value of SAP Investments

As companies deploy a wider range of SAP products, LiveCompare's expanded support for the SAP product portfolio means that benefits can immediately be seen throughout an IT environment. Proven in more than 100 companies running SAP, organizations such as IBM, Proctor Gamble, The Body Shop and Q8 have all seen at least a 30 percent reduction in costs associated with SAP ownership, following the implementation of IntelliCorp software.

LiveCompare is easy to use and most SAP customers, as well as partners, deploy within one week. The software quickly reduces the cost, scope and complexity of lifecycle activities, while safeguarding critical functional and technical operations. Specific version 2.1 updates include:

-- Unique 4.6c Unicode ABAP code analysis. -- Multi-step SAP upgrade analysis for customers that do not yet have a reference to be in-house system. -- Native support for new object types, including SmartForms, InfoSets and many new Business Intelligence objects. -- Faster SAP data access using less memory. -- Faster and easier to use data visualizations. -- Enhanced Smart Filters to eliminate less significant changes.

Companies need versatile software that can be used for specific projects and then expanded into greater operational roles for daily use, which results in increased savings, continued Trueman. Release 2.1 cements LiveCompare's position as the leading intelligent impact analysis technology for SAP lifecycle management.

LiveCompare supports SAP versions 4.6 and above, including the latest ECC 6.0 platform on all SAP supported hardware and RDBMS systems. In addition to core ERP, LiveCompare is compatible with all SAP ABAB-based products (e.g., HCM, BW and SCM) and SAP Industry Solutions. IntelliCorp's LiveCompare, LiveModel(TM) and DataWorks(TM) products automate the analysis of SAP systems, reduce the time, costs and risks associated with SAP lifecycle events, are SAP Integration Certified and are compatible with NetWeaver.
