Does your IT landscape involve more than one ERP system? You may consolidate them on a single SAP S/4HANA system by combining a New Implementation (Greenfield) and a System Conversion (Brownfield), also known as the Hybrid Approach. Just like an inland river with many streams joining together at a fertile delta, you may select the relevant ERP data to be migrated to SAP S/4HANA and improve efficiency.
Selective Data Transition (in other words Landscape Transformation or Hybrid Approach) method consolidates several ERP systems on SAP S/4HANA. Just like an inland river with many streams joining together at a fertile delta, Selective Data Transition migrates only relevant ERP data to SAP S/4HANA and boosts efficiency.
|International or national businesses may employ several ERP systems, and these may cause inefficiency and extra costs to run and maintain. Any system that is SAP or non-SAP can be consolidated on a single SAP S/4HANA system, thus cutting costs, and improving efficiency and transparency.
Selective Data Transition is also ideal for use during acquisitions and carve-outs.
Since the Selective Data Transition method is performed in various phases, you can maintain your daily routine until you are fully prepared for transition to SAP S/4HANA. Thus, you can avoid big bangs, risks, or downtime. Multiple systems are maintained and operated simultaneously to ensure a smooth transition in phases, depending on your organizational structure and plans.
The Hybrid Approach enables you to choose the data you wish to keep or migrate, and data to be eliminated. This flexibility makes sure that you can remove all outdated processes and inconsistent data, which makes it easier to reorganize, update and streamline your organizational structure and business. Once the consolidated system is operational, you will only have the relevant data.
Selective Data Transition approach to SAP S/4HANA means you can choose among hosting options that best suits you – on-premise or in the cloud with Managed Cloud Services (at itelligence, SAP, AWS, Microsoft Azure).
We have a flow chart to identify the main stages for a Selective Data Transition. However, you need to know more to make a sound decision:
What are the benefits of a Selective Data Transition?
What should you consider before implementation?
itelligence partners with Natuvion Group to accelerate Selective Data Transitions to SAP S/4HANA (Natuvion’s ALLFIELD™). Natuvion’s Data Conversion Software is a system transformation engine that offers a fast and pre-defined path to SAP S/4HANA.
Whatever the size or complexity of the project, Natuvion’s Data Conversion Software and Data Conversion architects provide a highly automated, fast as well as flexible migration to SAP S/4HANA. Thanks to Natuvion’s Cutover App the critical “near zero downtime to-live” becomes possible. Learn more about Natuvion’s ALLFIELD™ approach.
Natuvion is a founding member of the new SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement Community.
Once you decide to migrate to SAP S/4HANA, you will face the question of hosting. If you decide to keep your SAP S/4HANA system on-premise, you can perform all maintenance works yourself or outsource some of them, depending on your budget. As another alternative, you can choose to employ cloud-based external hosting options, such as our Managed Cloud Services.
