Selective system copy – how to pick just what you desire

Time has come for you to speed up your SAP developments. To make sure you are doing it right, keep your test system lean and effective.


As a first step, you need to speed up testing phase in suitable environments, ideally by reflecting fresh data content from production. Normally, full SAP system copies take days to run on large data sets and – in most of the cases – a large amount of disk space is required, which is not always a viable solution.


Ideal system copies should be made quickly and contain only the data required for tests. One of the available solutions is Selective System Copy (SSC) for your ERP What makes it stand out from the competitor’s offering data migration solutions is its flexibility: it is so lean that it can be tailored to any customer’s needs.Out of most-wanted features, it supports Time-slice scenario (from-date cut-off) and data filtering for company code.


You should consider it if you are faced with the following tasks:


  1. Standardized, repetitive selective data migrations, with the intent to create several testing environments or “lean” and “slim” copies of productive system
  2. Ad-hoc selective data migration, as part of a system landscape optimization (SLO) project, highly customized on customer needs (i.e. data harmonization, business objects selective migration, M&A, carve-out, business transformation, data scrambling, etc…)
