“[A DMR teammate] has been great to work with for many reasons; professionalism, knowledge, flexibility, dependability, etc. [They] have made things much easier for the article team by helping to identify issues, and proactively address them. [They] are always willing to jump in and help us out. ”

With the long-term goal of bringing merchandising functionality and master data into a one environment, this globally recognized retail corporation made the strategic decision to migrate to S/4 HANA and employ a data governance strategy that includes MDG. This decision is predicted to reduce the overall timeline of their global program portfolio from 3.5 years to 2 years. Given the complexity and known data quality issues in their legacy environment, a homegrown application that has been running since the 1980s, there was a strong need to bring on an expert-leading migration team.


DMR was engaged to handle all data migration. The scope includes 50+ conversion objects across all process areas from both SAP and non-SAP sources, with highly complex data cleansing challenges that are being addressed with the DMR Concento toolset. In addition to the data migration, DMR is leading the MDG implementation of SAP’s Solution Extension for Retail and Fashion Management (RFM).


The project is on track to go live later in 2020.
