Replicating data form Non sap to S/4 HANA using SLT

Hi All,

I have few questions on SLT importing/replication form Non SAP to S/4 HANA .

We are going to Implementing new S/4 HANA , i just wanted to know the end to end process of Migration/replication using SLT .

1. Which is the best tool for replication SLT or BODS?

2. Can we directly map Non SAP tables to HANA tables using SLT?

3. Can we directly transfer data form Non sap to HANA tables or we have write any conversion programs using ABAP to fill SAP tables like MARA after Import using SLT, or are there any other ways ?

4. How to support Central Finance functionality through SLT, there are any inter faces to support it ?

Thanks

    Hi Rajesh,

    I agree with Rajesh.
    Regarding the point 4 on your question, there are predefined SLT objects for Central Finance scenario.

    Objects such as AUFK, CFIN_ACCHD and COBK help you to implement Central Finance Scenario.

    For more details you can always refer to the Central Finance admin guide readily available on the internet.

    I have done one Central Finance implementation, let me know if you have more questions on the same.

    Regards,

    Manish

    Hi Rajesh,

    I can comment for the initial upload of data to new installation of S/4HANA from Non-SAP. Replication can be the next step.

    Please explore the tool S/4HANA Migration cockpit.

    Here you have pre-delivered objects which provide you with file template where you need to fill in data from Non-SAP and then upload it to S/4HANA Migration cockpit to finish migration. You can also create your own custom objects if needed ( available from 1610 FPS2 ).

    You can refer to this blog for understanding the tool:

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Rajesh,

    SLT is basically a table based replication/migration. What this means is, whatever is there is a source table, gets written to the target tables, and no field level validation is performed.

    The difference between using SLT for Central Finance scenario and other scenario/modules is the migration objects. For Central Finance scenario, the three objects I specified are capable on writing the data in the target system on application layer level. This means, the data from source system is taken as a reference and a new document is posted in the target system based on the number range availability of the target system.

    For other scenarios, there are no similar objects available and its difficult to maintain data referential integrity. For eg: You will be able to load MARC (Plant level) data without loading MARA (Basic Level) data.

    To summarize, SLT is capable of loading/migrating data for any module, but its not advisable to use for all scenarios (offcourse there are certain conditions involved). Hence, for other scenarios, Migration Cockpit is the answer.

    Hope it clarifies.

    Regards,

    Manish

    Hi Manish,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Can we use SLT for other modules to Migrate data from Non SAP to S/4 HANA ?or We have to use S/4HANA Migration cockpit as suggested by Dharshan ?

    Hi Manish Gupta,

    Please share the detailed documentation of Central Finance implementation and errors handling, if you have any.

    Who is the responsible person to configure / mapping data in SLT ? Is it ABAPer or a BAIS ?
