SAP® systems like SAP® R/3 or ECC are operated for a long time, with a typical production lifecycle of 5 to 8 years. Because of an initial absence of the SAP Solution Manager tool for documentation support and because of turnover in the system integrator and support staff, systems in the majority of cases have an outdated blueprint and configuration documentation. It usually does not reflect the current system configuration state e.g. regarding authorizations and customized objects like transactions or reports (Y, Z and customer namespace developments, SAP® code modifications, customer exits, BAdIs and the like).

It is a known fact for SAP® landscapes that ERP systems are insufficiently documented or have an outdated documentation.
