Transform SAP landscapes after business change

In business, change is inevitable, and recent years have brought even more changes than could be imagined. The global pandemic resulted in lockdowns in many countries around the world, meaning many businesses had to adapt to working remotely, furloughing staff, and more.


Business changes such as mergers, acquisitions, regional to global transitions and subsidiary sales can affect your entire SAP production landscape. These events are complex, critical and time-sensitive; your data may need to be merged, carved out or split up. EPI-USE Labs offers powerful solutions, experienced people and proven methodologies to help you keep ahead of the game. We specialise in extracting the right data and migrating it rapidly, to enable the transformation of your SAP Landscape.


Our System Landscape Optimization (SLO) team, using a specially enabled version of the Data Sync Manager (DSM) product suite, implements these changes drawing on a 'bank' of expertise and intellectual capital. Our experienced consultants will oversee the technical phases of the project, dealing with all the inherent complexities. More importantly, our technology-driven approach can significantly reduce the end-to-end project duration.

Overview of projects

Although recent times have brought a unique challenge with remote working, the SLO team has been able to
successfully deliver projects to meet the timelines required by our clients.
