OS/DB migration, heterogeneous DB-copy, alternative approaches (cheaper)

Hi Peter,

if you migrate a non-productive R/3 system to another plattform (OS and/or
DB) there is no fee and there is no need to do this by a certified consult.

If you migrate a productive R/3 system from one plattform to another (OS
and/or DB) you had to inform SAP and had to set up a project. This project
must be accompanied by a certified BC-Consultant meaning a by SAP certified
BC-Consultant (for this R/3 release) with additional certification for
migration. This must be.

The migration key itself is for free, also the migration tools are for free.
But there are 3 migration sessions (like the going live sessions) which must
be done. This sessions costs 8000 EUR. But if you have a 17 % R/3
maintenance these sessions are also for free if you not have claimed other
sessions (like EarlyWatch, GoingLive etc.) in the same year.

Don't take this migration project as a very simple project. It takes about
10 to 20 days.

Yours
Dieter Huber

Betreff: OS/DB migration, heterogeneous DB-copy,
alternative approaches (cheaper)


I have a customer who is planning an "OS/DB migration" (also known as
"heterogeneous database copy") of his SAP R/3 systems from AS/400 to NT.

As far as I know, the only reliable _and_ recognized[1] process is,
to have this done by a consultant who is certified for this sort of
operations,
using the tool obtained from SAP AG,
with the license,
and paying not just the consultant, but also a EUR 8000 license fee to
SAP AG.
[1]By "recognized" I mean, recognized by SAP, so that they cannot claim
that the "new" SAPsystem is unsupported.

The customer says that some other service providers have offered a
different approach -
the important difference being that the omission of the EUR 8000 fee.

My question is:
- Are there other approaches on the market?
- Are they reliable?
- Are the resultant SAPsystems still supported by SAP AG?
- Are the people who provide these services competent? (I have heard
horror stories about failed migrations.)
