A database migration is not something companies undertake lightly. Fear of downtimes makes companies reluctant to switch to a new database but SAP tackles this problem for its SAP Business Suite customers by helping them switch to the SAP HANA platform in as little as six hours.

With SAP Rapid Database Migration we not only streamlined the migration process, but also integrated and simplified the upgrade process. Just recently, an SAP customer from the manufacturing industry wanted to upgrade and migrate their SAP ERP system to SAP HANA. The uncompressed source database size was 2 TB. Using the new approach, the technical downtime for the upgrade to SAP ERP EhP 7 and the migration to SAP HANA was under 6 hours! If we include additional steps like testing, the overall business downtime was less than a day.
