Master data in SRM when backend system change

Former Member

Hi SRM Gurus,

Our scenario is ECC5 as backend system integrated with SRM 4.0( SSP scenario and iwith Catalog CCM2.0) Tech Implementation scenario is Extended classic .

Now our backend system will be changed to ECC6 from ECC 5.

ECC6 is installed on separate server for implementing changes in FI ( separate Dev, QA, Prod environment )

Question is that when we integrate SRM4.0 with ECC6, all master data (product categories, products & vendor master) needs to be replicated from ECC6 to SRM4.0

As SRM system will remain same what will happen to present master data in Production system.

As deletion is not suggested what is the correct approach.

We can delete this master data in SRM Dev and QA.

Can we keep master data pertaining to ECC5 as it is in SRM.

Any idea as to what type of impacts one can expect if backend system changed from ECC5 to ECC6? Is there a recommended approach for this?

I already referred note SAP note 418886 /995771.

By changing to ECC6.0 you would be entering a new backend system. Since the master data in SRM is linked to the respective backend system, it should not impact you.The old master data would still be there but linked to old backend system. You can let the data remain as it is if you want.
