Walldorf, Germany. December 7th, 2020 – Natuvion, a leading data integration service provider, today announced that it has been chosen by SAP to be one of only four members of the SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement community.
The group’s mission is to establish common standards, methods, and processes for a reliable and proven migration approach to SAP S/4HANA. The methodology, called Selective Data Transition, combines a flexible redesign of business processes and the preservation of historical data.
Natuvion’s contribution to the elite working group – which comprises just four members worldwide, plus SAP – is to share the experience, best practices, and data migration expertise it has gleaned from multiple complex projects at large customer sites involving selective data migration to SAP S/4HANA. In turn, the working group benefits from the migration knowledge and experience of the other members: SAP, as well as CBS, Datavard, and SNP.
Midsized and large companies around the world need methodologies to make the SAP S/4HANA migration process as smooth as possible. With data repositories that often go back decades and highly heterogeneous IT infrastructures that have grown over the years, this can be a challenge. These enterprises need the tools to help them select which data to migrate, while ensuring full compliance with legal data protection and retention regulations.
The members of the SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement working group are defining a range of migration scenarios that stand to gain maximum benefit from this innovative approach. SAP customers can rest assured that the four expert consulting firms have unprecedented access to the SAP transformation team, with whom they are in constant contact. In addition, the group’s sole mission is to ensure high quality, well-organized, flexible, and successful migrations for all its members’ customers.
“We’re very proud to have been chosen by SAP to be a member of its Selective Data Transition working group,” commented Patric Dahse, co-CEO at Natuvion. “The five companies sharing their collective expertise creates a formidable and globally unique body of knowledge that is of direct benefit to SAP customers wanting to migrate to S/4HANA. We’re looking forward to being able to share this knowledge with our customers, too.”
