Implementing or Upgrading SAP? Don't Forget the Data: Addressing the Challenges and Risks of Data Migration
Research has shown that software implementations are put at risk when data migration is not thoroughly considered and planned. The successful implementation of mission-critical SAP enterprise applications requires a mission-critical approach to data migration. Data migration is not just about moving the data into SAP; it's about making the data work once within SAP.
This white paper examines five common data migration challenges associated with SAP implementations:
Identifying and analyzing source data
Accessing source data
Addressing data quality in legacy applications
Preparing and loading data into SAP
Supporting the data migration lifecycle.
The paper also discusses the value of using Informatica® PowerCenter®, a single, unified enterprise data integration platform, to address these challenges.
