Getting master data clean when moving to S/4HANA

Many articles and Websites have been dedicated to the importance of moving from SAP ERP to SAP S/4HANA. Also the importance of data quality for successful conversions has been outlined in various podcasts and Webinars.

In a nutshell, there is common sense that high quality data leads to better, faster, and cheaper conversions, and more precisely, that spending time and energy upfront to ensure high quality data pays large dividends on the back-end, saving time and money and ensuring overall migration success.

I’d just like to add two Webinar recordings to the picture that show how SAP Master Data Governance helps in getting high-quality master data in the preparation of this move and how it ensures high-quality master data quality in your operational systems after the conversion. Take the chance and watch:


Make data management and clean master data a strategic priority for your S/4HANA project. You will need to address data quality eventually, so budgeting upfront and starting early is the smart way to go.

Wish you a good journey!

      In this context, you may also watch a Webinar recording about One Data Management at Döhler which includes information about the implementation of the master data governance program at the Germany-based global producer, marketer and provider of technology-driven natural ingredients, ingredient systems and integrated solutions for the food and beverage industry.

      Hi Markus,


      Thanks for sharing the blog.

      Can we do S/4 HANA Conversion from ERP with selective data like customizing?
