The new business suite is transforming to SAP S/4HANA with Selective Data Transition, which is an agitation for the companies worldwide. The systems and data can be moved efficiently and securely into the new digital world, as the existing SAP ERP system will be replaced by the end of 2025 to SAP S/4HANA on-premises or SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Therefore, companies are trying to get a grip on the challenges and possibilities of digitalization in a quick and flexible technique. There are two traditional approaches Greenfield (new implementation) and Brownfield (transformation of existing systems) on which the companies rely on until Selective Data Transition which is an alternative to the traditional Implementation approach.What is Selective Data Transition?
The selective Data Transition approach allows you to consolidate several SAP ERP systems to one central SAP S/4HANA system. With a Selective Data Transition, you can control which data and modules flow together, as the approach involves transferring data from one or more existing ERP solutions to a new S/4HANA solution. Selective Data Transition allows you to selectively re-use parts of your existing ERP solution while re-designing other parts.Why Selective Data Transition?
Transforming to SAP S/4HANA with Selective Data Transition would benefit from considerable advantages in terms of quality, costs, and time. Different ERP systems add inefficiencies and higher maintenance costs Therefore, consolidating various ERP systems (SAP or non-SAP systems) into one central ERP system – SAP S/4HANA – reduces overall costs while boosting transparency and efficiency. Critical and sensitive data is migrated and updated in a single go-live project.
Selective Data Transition is a form of approach that avoids the risk and downtime of a big bang while allowing you to keep your quotidian system all over the transition. To make the transition to SAP S/4HANA as smooth as possible, different system landscapes will be formed, including the possibility of a phased go-live, depending on your establishment system.
This approach allows you to decide which data you want to migrate or split. It helps you to get rid of the traditional process and unreliable data while maintaining only what meets your potential requirements and get streamlined system landscape including only the data that is applicable for your company.
