Data Migration Strategy: Key Factor for a Successful New ERP Implementation

Opportunity

Due to its expansion, this luxury retail chain decided to migrate its purchase-sale operation to a robust SAP ECC platform to make its processes more efficient. The company recognized the deficiencies that data quality explicitly presented to the catalog of Articles, as well as both the complexity and variety of standards required by them, providing better management of daily operations. To execute this initiative, this needed an expert team to lead the project.

Solution

DMR was chosen with the execution of migrating the catalog of Articles (and associated attributes) from the legacy system (RETEK) to SAP ECC and assumed responsibility for the entire two-year project from data extraction, execution of its preparation and cleansing processes, to its loading and Go-Live event.

Results

DMR successfully migrated 6 million items for 30+ departments and 22 sales locations. This success generated two additional projects. One being he design of the Corporate Data Governance Model and the other being the implementation of a continuous process for quality of Articles data both for the maintenance of those already recorded into SAP ECC and for new mass registrations through the supplier portal in a BPM flow. Both efforts were supported by DMR.
