Data Migration from Disparate Systems to SAP ECC 6.5 System

Client: VF Corp

Client was a holding company for popular retails clothing and accessories brands in the US, and was merging the brands under a single entity for better business management and decision making. The merger process was to be completed in two phases and all the major brands under the portfolio were being migrated to upgraded systems.

Client wanted to merge all the 8 brands in the portfolio in two phases by migrating data from different sources such as SAP R/3 4.7, files and DB2 to SAP ECC 6.5 so that these brands are managed from one SAP ECC system of record.

Representing IBM at client site, nFolks Data Solutions implemented the project by creating the DataStage jobs with best practices and performance tuning steps to merge the data for different brands from SAP R/3 4.7 System to SAP ECC 6.5 system. Following the implementation, client was able to access all the brands data from one SAP ECC 6.5 system as opposed to individual systems or different system of records for different brands
