With my recent experience in SAP S/4 HANA Migration cockpit in my role as SAP Finance consultant, where we migrated Asset balances,Exchange rates and GL balances with LTMC XML template, i would like to explain the step by step process of using LTMC Tcode.
There have been many blogs explaining the usage of Migration cockpit of SAP. In this blog, i am trying to explain the step by step process of how to use the transaction code LTMC.
The use of LSMW for data load to SAP S/4HANA is not recommended, hence an SAP Migration cockpit has to be used for migrations.
By end of this blog you will be able to browse through the LTMC tcode and understand the process and functions of Migration Cockpit.
Prerequisite: Web service has to be activated by using T-code SICF
High level Usages and advantages:
1)Standard XML template provided by SAP for each migration object and can be customized according to requirements.
2)User friendly and predefined process, with validation and simulation in place .
3)Useful for Master Data Migrations,open item migration, balance migrations,Asset migrations,etc.
4)Preconfigured Business Objects
4)Errors can be corrected on the fly.
