SAP Platform Migrations

Migrating an SAP database and application environment, along with the associated system software and unbundled products, is one of the most demanding tasks an IT team can encounter. In general, there are two types of migration: homogeneous and heterogeneous. A homogeneous migration is a migration from one platform and database architecture to the same platform and database. A heterogeneous migration is a migration from one platform and database architecture to a different platform and database.
