SAP EarlyWatch Alert

SAP EarlyWatch Alert is an automatic service analyzing the essential administrative areas of an SAP system. Alerts indicate critical situations and give solutions to improve performance and stability. To check and display these alerts, SAP offers the SAP EarlyWatch Alert Workspace, where you can also download the complete results as a report document.

SAP EarlyWatch Alert is most effective when activated for all SAP components in your solution. It gives an overview on KPIs and alerts on a weekly basis. It is covered by your maintenance agreement with SAP with no extra charge, and it is a technical prerequisite to deliver other remote services.
