What does a powerful and flexible alternative to LSMW mean to you?
Thousands of SAP users are leveraging Winshuttle Studio as a fast, flexible alternative to LSMW to reduce the burden on IT, improve productivity and significantly reduce the time and cost needed to develop new scripts.
What this means for IT
While LSMW is a useful tool for SAP deployment and data migrations, it was not built for everyday use, and its complexity and inflexibility often leads to extensive time and money spent in script development. Studio’s business led, IT enabled solution allows you to reduce the time needed for developing new templates and scripts, without compromising security or governance. For more information on how to spend less time developing data loading scenarios and more time on configuration and support, read this post to learn about Worcestshire County Council’s transition from LSMW to Winshuttle Studio.
What this means for business users
Winshuttle Studio empowers business users to create complex SAP transactions from the familiar Excel interface in three simple steps instead of the 14 required in LSMW, enabling you to get up and running quickly, with faster data creation and process execution. Studio does not require any developer level authorizations or ABAP programming, allowing you to improve productivity and take control of your own day to day business processes.
