Microsoft Dynamics to SAP ECC - Part 2

As promised, I'm posting Part 2 of the Dynamics GP to SAP migration.

Since my last post we've done a lot of cleansing to the GP data. Some of the ETL processes we ran include:

- Master data including GL accounts, Profit Center, Cost Center, Employees, Vendors and others
- Vendor and Customer addresses including multiple addresses for Vendor Partner functions
- Any Tax-related fields including 1099, GST, etc.
- Hierarchy if any (can be messy)
- Open Balances for General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable and Fixed Assets

Lastly, I consider my SQL scripting decent but get a really good one as you'll need to create lines of code and SP for your ETL.

Goodluck!

Note: I'll see if there's a need for another Part in FI, otherwise Part 3 will be more on SAP SD.

Microsoft Dynamics to SAP ECC - Part 1

Actively participating in the data modeling & cleansing, reporting (including BPC, BW and BI) and testing of a Dynamics GP client to SAP AFS.

Exciting, as the last time I was part of a SAP implementation was almost 10 years ago.

Piece of advice if you know you're going to migrate to SAP:
1 - When creating your Chart of Accounts start integrating Cost Center and Profit Center
2 - Create a logic in your Item, Vendor, Customer and Asset masters
3 - Addresses can create a lot of work if not properly maintained
4 - Use logic when using the classes
