New Rapid Data Migration packages available

I blogged here earlier about the value and rich content of the RDS packages around data migration. Today, on February 22, two new packages have been offcially released and are available on the Service Marketplace.

We were able to successfully bring the content of the existing data migration packages around SAP ERP, SAP CRM and SAP for Utilities to the latest release of SAP Data Services 4.1 and SAP Information Steward 4.1. Also, the rich content has been enhanced.

The new packages are:

SAP Rapid Data Migration and Data Quality has everything you need for migrating non-SAP data to an SAP system – SAP ERP, SAP CRM, SAP HCM, SAP Retail, SAP Billing for Utilities, and SAP Loans Management. It provides a migration framework, including documentation, templates, methodology, tools and expertise to analyze, extract, cleanse, validate, upload and reconcile legacy data and accelerate your migration project. The content leverages SAP Data Services and SAP Information Steward. The Data Quality (DQ) portion provides a prebuilt mechanism to prepare data for use within data migration scenarios or with ongoing data integration and data governance.

Please check out how this content works reading my how-to blog here.

      Frank,

      Do we have any standard Reconciliation procedure or any in-built functionalities for Data Reconciliation?

      Hi Raghu,

      There is a Reconciliation step in the Rapid Data Migration methodology, which compares the to-be-loaded data with the data that actually has been loaded after the migration. Please see figure 4 in my blog part 3:

      How to Visualize Data Migration Projects

      Also, check out our most recent webinar:

      Webinar: Learn more about S/4HANA, on-premise data migration

      And last but not least, follow The data Migration Guys:

      Introducing the Data Migration Guys

      In episode 2, I'm explaining the reconciliation.

      Hope this helps,

      FRANK.

      Frank,

              What do you believe is a reasonable time from end to end for the INSTALLATION of the RDM package. That is from don't have it to fire it up and get going with a migration?

      Cheers,

      Ross Goodman
