smartShift, a Cambridge Technology Enterprises (NSE: CTE) company and the leading provider of automated optimization of complex IT systems and cloud transformation services, announced today it will highlight its three best-kept secrets to optimization of ABAP® programming language code at SAP TechEd 2012 Las Vegas. Named smartAnalyze, smartModernize, and smartDevelop, the trio pact utilizes automated solutions to analyze and detect code issues and correct them, while keeping code compliant with company and industry coding standards.

“Automating certain aspects of the clinical drug trial process results in a remarkable reduction in time to market and drug development costs. It will reduce costs, but on a broader level, it will provide us with a way to significantly expedite our development processes, increasing the numbers of medications we can provide to a public that is more and more in need of them,” stated Himanshu Raval, senior manager of Global Business Technology, Pfizer.

The new solutions from smartShift are as follows:

  • smartAnalyze is an automated code-analysis tool that detects code issues within 48 hours through its unique parser-based analysis and metal model. The SaaS-based tool allows companies to securely upload their custom ABAP code base and receive a comprehensive report that includes a classification of code errors, as well as upgrades available for their system.
  • smartModernize automatically corrects the detected code issue, and saves 70 percent of the manual time spent on upgrade, unicode-enablement and consolidation projects. Its rules engine with a custom rule set of approximately 200 rules, helps ensure all objects are compliant with a company’s, the industry’s and SAP’s latest coding standards.
  • smartDevelop works as an automated assistant to developers during the ongoing code-development process. The automated solution frees up developers’ time spent on testing while saving more time to focus on enhancements.

smartShift will present information on these solutions during SAP TechEd in its booth 503. They will also be highlighted during a lecture session titled “Enhancing ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse,” which will be presented on Wednesday, Oct. 17 and Friday, Oct. 19 by Albrecht Gass, chief technology officer, smartShift, and Michael Schneider, development expert, SAP, (Session ID: CD206).

Included in Gartner’s list of “Cool Vendors in the SAP Ecosystem, 2012,” smartShift provides enablement services in support of SAP release upgrades and Unicode. Through its automated, custom transformation solution for ABAP, companies large and small are able to scope projects more accurately and mitigate risks throughout the lifecycle of SAP solutions. smartShift’s parser-based technology also reduces 70 percent of time and expenses during upgrade and optimization projects, while helping to ensure that ABAP code is 100 percent compliant with a customer’s specific company coding standards and SAP’s.
