Landscape transformation with automation

Our System Landscape Optimization (SLO) approach combines our SAP-certified Data Sync Manager™ (DSM) software suite and specialised consultants,
resulting in a much quicker, flexible and more secure process.


Significant business decisions also have far-reaching effects on your SAP landscape. System Landscape Optimization (SLO) addresses a wide range of triggers that impact your systems, such as mergers and acquisitions, divestitures and splits, business consolidations, re-organizations and restructuring.

Many SAP SLO projects follow similar technical routes. Rather than relying solely on a few key SLO consultants with experience of the various project types and their own add-ons to the basic tools, we have a unique approach of feeding the knowledge learnt across these projects back into the solution. This makes the next execution of the same project type significantly quicker and more robust, with less manual effort.

Leveraging templated project solutions integrated into the core of our technology means less hours, and a more repeatable and reliable process for our clients.

How is your SAP landscape impacted by business change?

Divestitures and Splits

Divestitures and splits involve the proper isolation and extraction of the data related to the business being divested or a functional area being split off from the core system in question. These carve-outs must be done in such a way to ensure that the resulting target systems retain data integrity and are operational. EPI-USE Labs provides:

Data-driven blueprints

Company code carve-outs

Sub-company code carve-outs

HCM splits from ECC systems

Mergers and acquisitions

The complexity of business systems means that the integration of systems due to a merger or acquisition can be a significant challenge. Best practice is to start with an analysis that can compare systems across different layers. Based on this information, strategic decisions can be made about what the best approach is. EPI-USE Labs provides:

System analysis and comparison

Data strategy advisory services

Data migration

Repository comparison and harmonization

Technology Modernization

Support your business with the latest enhancements. Modernizing your technology platform has the potential to not only save by leveraging open-source stacks, cloud offerings and in-memory databases, but also re-imagine your business under a far more flexible and powerful set of technologies. EPI-USE Labs offers:

Migration to S/4HANA

Re-platforming

Database size reduction

System & business consolidation

Organic growth and legacy decisions can lead to complex distributed systems and inconsistent business processes, which not only limit scalability but also significantly increase operational costs. At some point, it is better to harmonize and consolidate these systems in order to grow again. To assist with this decision, EPI-USE Labs offers:

System analysis and comparison

Data strategy advisory services

Data migration

Repository comparison and harmonization

Reorganization

Reorganizations have become ubiquitous events in companies because of managerial changes, business strategy and portfolio changes. Human Resources changes are typically managed in-house; however, more complex changes can require outside help. EPI-USE Labs is known in the industry as an HCM specialist, and our tools have been built to handle SAP’s unique HCM data model.

HCM employee transformations

'PD Org' transformations

Elastic Scalability

Restructuring

Restructuring, unlike reorganizations, is a result of an enterprise deciding to change its legal, financial, manufacturing and/or supply-chain structures. These are referred to in SAP as the ‘Enterprise Model’. Most of SAP’s data references and contains elements of the Enterprise Model. Thus, changes to the enterprise model also require changes to all data that refer to the specific changes. SAP’s tripartite architecture (Enterprise-Data-Function) is reflected in EPI-USE Labs' model-driven software. So, we can provide:

Company code consolidations and/or splits

Plant consolidations and/or splits

Plant relocations

SAP HCM Splits and transformations

Many companies have deployed HR functionality within their SAP ERP (ECC) system, but HR systems require more frequent changes because of legal, financial and business reasons relative to other ERP components.
By decoupling HR from ECC, companies can achieve a number of company-wide benefits:

  • Increase business agility
  • Automate testing
  • Prepare for the future (Move to the cloud, outsource)

Alternatively, you may want to migrate your on-premise HR and Payroll to S/4HANA Private Cloud Edition (PCE) for HCM, or SuccessFactors' Employee Central Payroll. PRISM is our turnkey solution to help you transition quickly and easily, with minimal risk.

DSM helps Dunelm realign SAP landscape

"Data Sync Manager is very good at taking selective pieces of data that we need, and slicing that into different sizes. So for each environment, you wouldn’t necessarily take the same amount of data, because you don’t need as much data in a sandbox system as in a test system. So DSM is good at slicing and dicing the data as you need it, to reduce size."


Steve Ross, SAP Technical Services Manager, Dunelm
