Fission leveraged its program management expertise, proprietary data transformation software (ATOM), and methodology to merge the client’s legacy ECC data into their newly carved-out live S4 system (link to Hubbell case study) project within an aggressive timeline.
Client is an industry-leading provider of commercial and industrial lighting solutions. They provide sustainable advanced lighting and intelligent controls to their customers.
An existing SAP ECC system was to be merged with a newly live SAP S/4HANA system and the data from the two systems.
- Prior to project, half of the business was running on a new SAP S/4HANA system and the other half on an old SAP ECC system (v1709)
- Each SAP system had unique customizations, configurations, and integrations that needed to be retrofitted and merged
- Due to licensing considerations, the project needed to be completed in four months
- Fission architected a project landscape that would allow for multiple iterations of data migration execution, validation, and testing without disruption to either productive system.
- Data was extracted from the client’s live SAP ECC system and transformed using Fission’s ATOM software before being loaded into the client’s live SAP S/4 system. This process was tested through multiple runs in the project landscape.
- All systems integrated with SAP ECC were thoroughly assessed before being retrofitted for integration with SAP S/4. Redundant applications were removed from the landscape and 32 integrations were brought live in the S/4 landscape before and during cutover.
- Comprehensive test plans were developed and executed under the direction of a Fission testing workstream lead.
- Data was accurately extracted, transformed, and loaded from the ECC system to the S/4 system
- 32 applications successfully integrated into the target SAP S/4 system
- Established full three tier environment for support of the client’s now integrated S/4 system
- Completed a highly complex and detailed merge on an extremely aggressive timeline
- Executed cutover processes and achieved a go-live with zero critical defects and no data loss
