Just a few days ago, a new edition of the German SAP PRESS book Migrating Your SAP Data has been released. This all new 4th edition is available in German only (Datenmigration in SAP). But for those of you who speak German and can’t wait until the book will be available in English, it’s worth a look! Read here what is NEW and what is covered in addition to the prior edition.
I’m proud having joined the SuccessFactors and Integration experts author team around Vishnu Kandi, Venki Krishnamoorthy, Donna Leong-Cohen, Prashanth Padmanabhan, Chinni Reddygari to contribute an entire chapter about Data Migration:
Chapter 10 of Integrating SuccessFactors with SAP: All cloud deployment models start with a one-time migration of foundation data. Getting, cleansing and migrating data to a Core HR system is critical to the success of an implementation and integration projects. The key to successful data migration is standardized and engineered rapid data migration content for a fast and simple go-live with valid and clean data. In this chapter, we’ll explain the migration of data from an SAP ERP HCM or third-party system into Employee Central by leveraging the rapid-deployment paradigm. This chapter is meant for HCM functional consultants who configure SAP and SuccessFactors Employee Central and technical consultants who migrate employee data as part of an implementation. The chapter also provides insight for implementation project managers who need to plan an Employee Central implementation.
