Selective process optimisation
Selective Data Transition was developed as an alternative to the rather complex and costly New Implementation and the less complex but also permanently less flexible System Conversion.
The aim of this approach is to continue with the existing source landscape, but to allow more flexibility for current and future process requirements.
Possible target systems here are also SAP S/4HANA on-premise and the SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition.
Selective system consolidation
The Selective Data Transition approach can also be very useful when consolidating a landscape consisting of several SAP / non-SAP systems and possibly even aiming for a selective transformation into the new landscape. The implementation of this transition can be planned and carried out in individual steps or phases.
The priorities can be guided by the consideration of ROI and TCI, with the aim of achieving a significantly lower TCO in a consolidated system with harmonised processes and unified master data.
Why Selective Data Transition?
There are various reasons or requirements that speak for the SAP S/4HANA transformation with the Selective Data Transition approach. The typical scenarios and customer situations are:
- Time-slice scenario: Historical data is to be migrated only partially.
- Selective company code transfer: Step-by-step conversion of the entire ERP landscape or partial conversion (M&A)
- Adaptation/selection scenario (very common): Changes necessary in certain areas, while other areas remain unchanged (example: financial accounting - new general ledger, logistics remains unchanged).
