Success Story: Automating and Accelerating SAP System Separation and Consolidation

“SNP brought both professionalism and dedication to the table for the merge of the AMI system into PRC. We are now engaged with them on multiple projects, including SAP carve-outs and migrations to S/4HANA, in order to realise our future SAP instance strategy.”

Ian Stubbings, Platform Engineering Lead, IT&S, BP plc

The Challenge

As the AMI system was used to run a petrochemicals plant, all the local operational and historical data had to be to migrated and merged into the existing global petrochemicals SAP ECC6 without the need to first upgrade the 4.6C legacy system.

The Solution

BP elected to use SNP’s industry standard transformation software Transformation Backbone to simplify, accelerate and automate the carve-out of the entire AMI SAP application dataset and merge into the operational PRC system.

The Advantage

  • Full migration of all current and historical business data into an operational production system
  • No requirement to upgrade the source system before migrating to target
  • The transformation software ensured complete data integrity and avoids technical conflicts in the target
