Software migration to SAP but want to keep the existing database

Dear experts,

My company is planning to replace existing business applications (ASP or ASP .NET applications & Oracle database) with SAP software. Some applications are even still under development. To avoid complete code rewriting, is it possible to keep the existing database & only use ABAP for application logic & user interface instead?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Haris

    Hi,

    SAP database table structure and ASP .NET database table structure are totally different. Hence simply keeping the base oracle database same and changing the covering programming layer from ASP to ABAP won;t help.

    You will need to redevelop everything in ABAP from scratch.

    Hope this answers your query.

    It is theoretically possible to build your applications around both platforms but it does not make much sense longterm.

    You would have to maintain two different platforms, you have to synchronize your data with interfaces between .NET and SAP. Also the users will experience varying frontend looks, depending on the technology.

    Cheers Michael
