SLT Réplication Server for Central Finance (cFIN) scenarios –

Introduction

 

In this blog post we will discuss about SLT, one of the most powerful product of SAP for real – time replications. Will discuss about SLT advance setups before starting your cFIN implementation project. I am currently working in a Central Finance project as an SLT SME. I will share my project experiences and knowledge in this and subsequent blogs. This will help you with real time SLT related issues during your cFIN implementation journey.

 

Background

 

SLT is the one of the key system in any Central Finance (cFIN) project. As soon as your BASIS team installs the SLT system, your job as an SLT admin is to make sure that the system is ready and there are no surprises during cFIN implementation.

Any changes that need to be made in SLT after the load/replication starts will require a de-activation of configurations (Mass Transfer IDs). This will cause unwanted delays and the client may not appreciate these delays.

I have seen projects where these things are overlooked. Later on issues come and escalations happen.

So, it is always advisable to make sure that SLT is in sync and up to date well in advance before the transfers start.

The below flowchart will be handy to make sure there are no misses in setting up the SLT for a cFIN implementation project.

Conclusion

 

SLT is the heart of any Central Finance Project. It is the key product which decides the success or failure of the project. A well planned SLT installation and setup will prevent you from missing project deadlines.
