SAP Migration Service. 

A service for consulting and supporting a technical SAP release upgrade for a SAP system landscape.
SAP Gold Partner

Bechtle has a great deal of experience in introducing SAP HANA as the strategic database technology within our customers’ SAP landscapes.

Plus, we’re much more than a capable “software installer”. We know the ins and outs of IT infrastructure. Combined with our extensive knowledge of the SAP ecosystem, this has enabled us to successfully deliver dozens of HANA installations and migrations - both on premise and in hyperscaler-hosted scenarios.

      Mainstream maintenance of SAP software versions are limited in time. In order not to pay any additional costs for extended maintenance or to receive manufacturer support, the SAP products must be updated regularly, according to the information in the Product Availability Matrix (PAM).

      Optional Services: SAP Unicode Migration: 

      Unicode is an international standard for character representations. There are two compelling reasons to switch the SAP system to Unicode.

      1. From the SAP kernel release NetWeaver 7.5 and SAP ERP 6.0 EHP8, the system must be switched to Unicode.

      2. A prerequisite for a S/4HANA conversion is an Unicode database. Systems that have not yet performed unicode migration cannot be converted to SAP S/4HANA in one technical step.


      • Preparation and execution of a SAP Unicode workshop with all departments and teams involved (project manager from the customer, key user of the department, SAP development). The result is a coordinated project plan with all necessary activities
      • Preparation of the Unicode migration on the basis of the SAP Unicode Conversion Guide in the corresponding version as well as the necessary SAP notes
      • Implementation of the technical SAP Unicode conversion
      • Technical rework of the Unicode conversion according to SAP UC-Guide
      • Documentation of customer-specific settings and activities as part of Unicode Conversion
