Changing your SAP ERP HCM System Landscape using SAP Landscape Transformation 2.0 SP08

Companies face challenges that not only affect their strategic direction and organizational structure but also directly affect their SAP® ERP Human Capital  Management (SAP ERP HCM) solution.

The following business scenarios may impact your SAP ERP HCM solution:

  • Expanding into new business areas as a result of mergers and acquisitions (M&As)
  • Focusing on core competencies (divestments)
  • Lowering operating costs

SAP Landscape Transformation 2.0 SP08 address HCM-related business transformation scenarios that require the migration of data. It provides end-to-end transformation solutions that support you with the technical data migration for the following scenarios:


  • SAP ERP HCM System Merge (to unify one or more systems initiated by a company takeover)
  • SAP ERP HCM System Split (to realize the setup of a legal entity after a divestiture)
  • SAP ERP HCM System Carve-Out (to reduce costs for upgrade cycles or for security reasons)
  • SAP ERP HCM System Integration (to simply your system landscape)



In addition, for the split and carve-out scenarios you have the possibility to upgrade to a higher release – this gives the advantage of one downtime.

SAP Landscape Transformation 2.0 SP08 provides you not only with the technical step-by-step guidance but also contains best practices and knowledgeware: The dedicated HCM Transformation roadmap guides you throughout the transformation project from a project management view, and contains in-depth accelerators and background information. The HCM Object Analysis examines the usage of SAP ERP HCM objects in your systems to give an overview of the current status. In addition, you can benefit from a broad range of standard SAP LT analyses such as Customizing Comparison, Repository
Comparison, or the Number Range Object Comparison.

An HCM transformation project can be implemented directly by your organization, or a partner organization. SAP SLO Consulting also offer a comprehensive set of services that can be tailored to your project-specific requirements.

After a successful SAP HCM transformation project, you can use the transformation solution SAP ERP HCM Data Deletion to delete HCM
data in the sender system. This is typically done as a separate project.

      I agreed to your point of server installation of data centers in one place with no natural we calculate the landsscape of install the servers


      HCM have to monitor server installation place and Remote place logging 24*7 support

      (i.e) citrix,VPN(virtual Private Network)

      sender system will be the Remote system user System not Admin or end user system

      For a HCM carve out project, does the new target system has to be at the same support package level as the sender system? And afterwards proceed with the upgrade? Or if the target system has a higher support package level, then it should be fine?

      Hello Cristi,

      in the HCM Carve Out Scenario use can choose either

      • to have Sender/Receiver System on the same release and support package level or
      • to have the Receiver System on a higher release and SP Level.

      Our Product will check in detail Sender and Receiver System and will make you aware of different SP level´s for example.

      For the upgrade we use the standard XPRA´s.

      If you have more questions please let me know.

      Best regards, sybille

      Hi Sybille,

      we are thinking to carve out our HR module from existing ECC system because of HRSP support packs takes lot of extra outage to the system.

      we want to know form where we should start? I understand it’s LT tool of solution manager which does the carve out. Whether we can do it of our own without any help? Do you have any step by step document which explain the details how to carve out HR module from ECC

      Hi Sudip,

      SAP LT is a product for SAP ECC systems, with a license fee. Please get back to your sales representatives.

      I am not in this topic any more, but: in SAP LT itself there is guidance what to do. I know from former times, that customers did the carve-out by themselves if they have deep HCM knowledge bundled with IT.

      You can also reach out to SAP Consulting (maybe to clarify our requirements and project plan).
