There are two typical SAP standard options to move to SAP S/4HANA. The so-called Greenfield- and Brownfield approach. Another extremely popular transformation option is the Selective Data Transition (SDT). It offers many advantages for companies that need more flexibility when migrating to SAP S/4HANA. In addition, SDT allows various aspects of the above-mentioned transformation scenarios to be combined securely and intelligently.
A Selective Data Transition to SAP S/4HANA®, combines a flexible redesign of business processes while retaining historical data aligned to a new business reality. It allows you to freely select the transferred set of data and leave non-selected data behind. In addition, you are able to flexibly re-organize the target system landscape and merge or split systems according to your requirements. Also, SDT allows customers a phased Go-Live (for example county by country) and a minimized downtime as the migration can happen in waves of organizational units.
To provide these benefits, SDT requires experience and a set of proven methods, tools and software. SAP has formed a global expert community (SAP S/4HANA® Selective Data Transition Engagement) to standardize this approach and guarantee a consistent quality of execution. Natuvion is one of these members and will provide you with a reliable and proven transition to SAP S/4HANA®.
