Are you operating a classic APO system in a side-by-side approach, i.e. do you use an ERP system in addition to the APO system and are planning to switch to S/4HANA?
Then you do not need a separate system to use the PP/DS functionalities, but you can benefit from the advantages of tool-supported migration of your data.
With the CONSILIO add-on solution for tool-supported PP/DS migration, data can be migrated directly from ERP to S/4HANA. During the transfer, system downtime is reduced to a minimum without disrupting ongoing operations. The solution supports every user situation and serves all upcoming transformation scenarios.
