A global group of transformation experts

In 2018, the demand for more flexible methods for migration to SAP S/4HANA® increased significantly in the market, because in most cases, the common approaches of brownfield and greenfield simply did not meet reality in companies. Therefore, SAP founded the “Selective Data Transition Engagement” taskforce, with partners who are recognized experts of successful SAP system transformations.

The goal of this global expert community “SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement” is to leverage the combined knowledge and experience of all members from several thousand successful SAP ERP migration projects, to help customers migrate to SAP S/4HANA®. It establishes common standards, methods and processes for a secure migration to SAP S/4HANA.

Our customers can rely on the members of the working group to know about the opportunities and risks of a selective approach, to have expertise in this area, to continuously expand their knowledge and to exchange project experiences.

Selective data transition vs. classic migration approaches

The “Selective Data Transition” is an innovative approach that goes beyond a standardized new implementation or system changeover. With this innovative approach it is possible to freely select the data sets you want to migrate. Thus, a flexible redesign of business processes and the preservation of historical data can be combined, representing a true hybrid approach of greenfield and brownfield, reflecting the reality of economical IT handling processes and ensuring the efficiency and innovation of SAP S/4HANA. 

Datavard is one of the four SAP S/4HANA Selective Data Transition Engagement partners

Datavard is a founding member of the workgroup with more than 20 years of diverse experience in SAP system transformations.

The four global partners of the community are united by the goal of maintaining the highest quality standards with expertise and commitment, regardless of the complexity of the migration. This reduces project time, costs and risks through effective standardization.

By choosing Datavard to join the workgroup, SAP recognizes Datavard's know-how, longstanding expertise and proven approach to transferring active data into SAP S/4HANA.
