Some time ago I created a webinar about SAP PI to PO migrations. I wanted to use the content and share it because it is quite useful for everybody working on a migration. I can see that it is some of the questions that I got on my latest webinar was also about the process. I do hope that this gives a better understanding of what is happening.
As with all things, there are 7 steps to make a good SAP Migration. So if you are in the process this is the steps that I would recommend that you take. It is assumed that you will migrate to a new system because it will make it easier to migrate a single interface at the time. If things does not work you will always have a backup plan.
The 7 steps are the following:
- Current integrations
- Pattern mappings
- Resource consumption
- Migration phases
A lot of the process here can be automated with the Figaf tool.
The process should be very iterative because you learn a lot in the process that you can use to migrate other interfaces. I the current integration you are going to map out all your existing interfaces together with what types of pattern they are using. This information will then be used in the migration phase and how it is going you may get input on how the next interfaces can be migrated.
You can view this in two different ways. Either you can watch my Screen recording video of it.
Or view the slides here and download them if you want to be using them.
We have created more resources on how to manage an SAP PI/PO Migration.
Automation of the migration
We have created a number of tools in the Figaf IRT suite that can make life easier for any SAP PI/PO migration. Below you can see how the Figaf tools can help automate the migration process.
