What is included in this SAP Benchmark Report:

  • Analysis of SAP robustness, performance, security, changeability, and transferability
  • Based on 78 ABAP applications, over 48 MLOC
  • Industry sector analysis by: Manufacturing, Government, Retail, and others.

Findings from the study include:

  • The rules most consistently violated by ABAP developers affect performance or maintainability of SAP applications.
  • SAP violations affect system reliability and could result in unexpected behaviors.
  • The large number of ABAP customizations outsourced and managed by the business rather than IT may contribute to the issues observed.

“CAST’s report correctly emphasizes that the value of SAP implementations can easily be limited by customized applications that are poorly written by well-meaning developers.”
