RSC Salt 1 Certified by SAP® as “Powered by SAP NetWeaver®”
SAP certification satisfies crucial decision point for IT system managers
Melbourne, AU – March 8, 2011
Revelation Software Concepts Pty Ltd (RSC), an SAP® software partner and creator of the widely used Rev-Trac® change control technology for use with SAP solutions, today announced that its free Salt 1 platform has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that Salt 1 integrates with the SAP ERP application based on the ABAP™ programming language add-on 7.0 for SAP NetWeaver Application Server 7.0. This certification authorizes Salt 1 to use the "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" tagline and logo, which is an important designation for many IT decision makers.
Salt 1, a free "Software as a Service" or SaaS application platform, runs on-site as a virtual appliance, driving the Salt Apps™ suite of small but incredibly useful "mini-apps" to automate time-consuming processes normally done manually. Chores such as keeping track of work-in-progress, searching through millions of lines of ABAP code or highlighting differences across landscapes no longer need divert limited IT resources that teams can better use elsewhere.
"Adding any software to large IT systems is not trivial," commented David Drake, CEO of RSC. "Even small implementation problems can require extensive resources for correction. SAP certification tells managers that Salt, through integration with SAP solutions, can support their mission-critical information applications. They know they can implement Salt with confidence.”
"Our customers have come to trust our change control technology, since it has enjoyed 100-percent implementation success over the past 10 years," said Rick Porter, vice president of business development. "Organizations not yet using Rev-Trac change control can now take advantage of the same long RSC experience. Certification tells decision- makers that Salt interoperates with SAP solutions.”
In addition, Salt 1 has achieved “SAP Solution Manager Ready” status. Solutions that qualify as SAP Solution Manager ready are made visible to the customer’s SAP system landscape directory, displayed within the SAP Solution Manager application management solution at the customer site. Salt 1 has also been tested rigorously for use with SAP ERP 6.0, which provides core functionality for the SAP NetWeaver Application Server.
During certification testing, Salt 1 was shown to access and deliver requested information very quickly, typically in less than a second even on large, established systems. The same information takes much longer to locate manually, and automating such chores helps ensure that important information such as differences between systems, reusable or orphaned code objects, and the like are not overlooked.
Because of their broad utility, Salt Apps have already been installed on SAP software-based IT systems ranging from straightforward DEV-QA-PRD architectures to complex N and N+1 systems managed by global companies.
As an OVF-packaged or VMX-packaged Virtual Machine, the Salt platform is compatible with VMware Player, Workstation, ESX/ESXi 3.5 and later, VirtualBox and Xen. It supports up to three systems at no charge, while fee-based subscriptions are available for up to 20 systems. Salt Apps are independent of RSC’s flagship Rev-Trac change control product, and Rev-Trac is not required to run.
