Database Migration of SAP ERP to SAP HANA



The Database Migration of SAP ERP to SAP HANA is a service specially designed to take advantage of best migration practices by SAP, to help your customer replace the underlying relational database of their SAP ERP system with SAP HANA as a database.

The Database Migration of SAP ERP to SAP HANA combines the Database migration and the Enhancement Package update of the SAP software into a single phase via the database migration option (DMO) of the Software Update Manager (SUM) or, if the SAP system release is already sufficient for a direct migration, by using the Heterogeneous System Copy instead of DMO. The service consists of four main deliverables:


  • SAP HANA Software components installed and updated.



  • SAP ERP software updated to the required Enhancement package.



  • SAP ERP database migrated to the SAP HANA instances by heterogeneous system copy.
