Custom Code Monitor
The West Trax Custom Code Monitor is a cloud based KPI Analyser service that enables SAP customers to rapidly perform an automated, accurate evaluation of the effectiveness of their custom code. With minimal effort they can then ensure that only those programs which deliver added value remain in the production system.
Due to a lack of system transparency SAP customers invest ever increasing resources in system maintenance. As a consequence innovations and new developments may be constrained by a lack of funding. The Custom Code Monitor assists clients to reduce maintenance efforts to a minimum, freeing up resources for projects that add value to the business.
West Trax has completed over 1,400 analyses of SAP systems. Results have shown that on average SAP instances contain 45% custom code, 40% of which was not used but incurred unintentional or unknown maintenance costs.
With minimal effort the West Trax Custom Code Monitor allows clients to rapidly identify wasted effort that can be easily eliminated from the system without risk.
Repeat analyses on a regular (e.g. monthly) basis provide trend data ensuring ongoing transparency, continuous improvement and increased ROI.
A significant reduction in maintenance cost may release funding for innovation and business improvement projects.

Standard tables and reports are extracted from the SAP System in accordance with instructions provided by West Trax and saved as ZIP files. These are uploaded to the West Trax server and analysed online. No business or personal data is uploaded. The server and data centre security environment is state of the art.
The results are presented as absolute numbers and percentages. In addition spreadsheets and graphs are provided. Appropriate improvement actions are recommended for each analysed metric.
The Custom Code Monitor includes a calculator which produces a financial evaluation of optimisation potential and benefits. The user can adjust the calculation parameters as required. All tables and graphs are optimised for iPad use, allowing the results to be conveniently accessed and viewed by client management at any time.
The calculator establishes both the potential savings generated by eliminating unused custom code and the associated costs.
Detailed implementation information is provided in list form which can be downloaded for further processing. The export interface is Excel.
In order to create a historical database, the results of previous analyses are saved and can be used for comparisons and trend analysis.
