BP and CVI in SAP S/4HANA System Conversion

Content updated on March 9, 2020.
Downloadable document explaining the entire CVI Synchronization process in a step by step format is available at the link below.

One of the major activities in an SAP S/4HANA on-premise conversion project is to implement Customer/Vendor Integration (CVI) and create Business Partners for customers, vendors, and contact persons in the SAP ERP system before the start of S/4HANA system conversion. SAP Note 2265093 explains this prerequisite for converting an SAP ERP system to SAP S/4HANA. I have put together a document explaining the entire CVI process in a step by step format to help consultants engaged in S/$HANA conversion projects. My colleagues and I from SAP’s S/4HANA Regional Implementation Group (RIG) have supported a number of S/4HANA projects globally and have been directly involved in assisting our customers with the CVI/conversion process. Based on our experience, I have added a section called lessons learned where I have provided a list of the commonly encountered issues and solution approaches taken by different customers. A pdf version of this document can be downloaded from the link below.

I will be updating this document with additional information as needed. Your comments and suggestions to improve this document are welcome.

  • Hello Chelliah,

    in the latest provided version of step by step guide for implementing CVI in SAP ERP
    ''SAP S/4HANA - Business Partner & Customer Vendor Integration'' from march 2020
    the previously defined step in post conversion activities
    ''For Post Processing tasks, you may use Best Practice Building Block J61 as a reference.''
    was not listed furthermore.
    Also this scope (J61) item and related scope item (BN4) cannot be found in Best Practices
    for SAP S4/HANA 1909 LATEST.
    Are these activities not relevant and is there an alternate process? If not, can you please
    provide to me a link, where I can display the actual conversion guides for BN4 and J61?
    Thank you in advance for Your help
