SNP Red Alert
Monitoring of the correctness of EDI communication
The cooperation between partners using EDI platforms requires automatic, failure-free flow of documents (orders, order confirmations, invoices, etc.) between the systems. In the SAP environment, the exchange is based on the IDOC format, which in practice includes documents in XML, CSV, UBL and other formats. In practice, EDI solutions – located at the junction of various IT environments, exposed to connection and security problems – are rather prone to failure.
SNP Red Alert is a simple SAP extension for preventive monitoring of IDOC statuses, technical logs and scheduled tasks. In any given cycle, e.g. once a day, Red Alert SNP automatically prepares a checklist in MS Excel and sends it by e-mail to the defined addresses.
This significantly simplifies the control process. Without logging into the system, administrators can immediately notice which messages have not left the system and react as early as possible, taking corrective actions or forwarding the problem to an external support center.
The solution is a ready-to-use extension to the SAP system. After uploading the transports and simple configuration, users can start using the tool.
