When I was planning upgrade/migration/move projects towards S/4HANA 1610 it was possible to go from a non-unicode directly to S/4 in 1 step which greatly improved the go-live time.
Now I was reading through the 1709 conversion guide and it mentioned that coming from a non-unicode system you had to perform 2 steps for a migration. So first step towards a supported unicode system and second step towards 1709.
So my question is: is this correct? and if it is, are there plans to create the same functionality for 1709 as there were for 1610 in regards to 1 step conversion?
thanks in advance!
