Complex Cutover Strategy

Hi all,

I would like to seek your help on the issues that I am currently facing.

Company A is currently running SAP ECC6.0. They are about to take over several warehouses Company B, which is also using SAP. I would need to know how to advice them accordingly to ensure a smooth cutover in transitioning these warehouses into Company A's SAP system.

Apart from that, they mentioned that upon go-live/cutover, Company A and Company B will be running SAP in parallel where, PM Activities such as maintenance order will be created in company B's SAP system, but the inventory management which is now owned by Company A, will be performed in Company A's SAP system.

Any Idea how to go about this?

Im thinking that an interface has to be created between both systems to ensure that both systems are updated with the necessary data. Example, PM work order created in Company B, and then the data will be pushed to Company A's SAP system. Then when Inventory management activities are done in Company A, data will be pushed back to company B's SAP system.

Is there another way to go about this?

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    This scenario we have in our firm up and running. 2 landscapes are integrated through interfaces. and the interfaces are activated through batch jobs which run in specified time.

    I docs are exchanged between the system. It is not possible for me to explain deeply here.

    but i feel this will be a worst solution because this adds more pressure on support activities.

    Best way is to have minimal activity in Company B's SAP System. slowly in a time phased manner, bringing SAP of company B in to Company A and merging both the licenses.
