Our special this year: Migrate to HANA – perform DB migrations like an expert with a downtime optimized approach. Visit this lecture and learn how to leverage the new downtime optimized approach that realizes the database migration in minimal time! This does not only save a lot of time and money, it also makes use of the most sophisticated tools around SUM, SWPM and DMO. Don't know these acronyms? Become a database migration insider and learn the rapid way for facing the challenge of migrating your SAP ERP to SAP HANA.

With our downtime-optimized approach, we can migrate data while productive systems are still up and running. Approximately 90% of a customer’s source system are initially transferred. We are ensuring stability and consistency of the running system by tracking all delta information during the first migration step. This means that the system has to be shut down only while we migrate the delta - which brings downtime to a minimum.

Register now and add session BT1614 to your agenda!
