Background documentationSolution: Object-Based Reduction for SAP Banking


This migration solution is applicable to the migration of data from an SAP Banking system.

With this migration solution, you can migrate the following types of data:

  • Transactional Data: SAP TDMS migrates transactional data from the sender system to the receiver system based on the business objects you specify.

    Note Note

    To ensure data consistency in the receiver client for the specified data slice date, SAP TDMS transfers additional transactional data that is business-relevant.

    End of the note.
  • Master Data and Customizing Data: SAP TDMS transfers the complete set of master data and Customizing data regardless of the data slice you specified.

  • SAP ERP HCM Data: You can choose to migrate SAP ERP HCM data based on the data slice date.


You have identified the specific business objects matching your business criteria for the non-production system.

You generate a list of business partners, for example, for the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. You specify the business partner numbers in the list as the selection criteria for data migration using SAP TDMS.


You can carry out data scrambling in the sender system after selecting the data and before transferring the data to the receiver system.

SAP TDMS copies the data selected for transfer to a data cluster and scrambles the cluster data before transfer.


This migration solution includes the following phases:


Package Settings

In this phase, you select the business partners, master contracts, and external accounts that you want to transfer to the receiver system. In addition, you make certain technical settings such as assigning logical system names in the receiver system, excluding user-related data from data transfer, specifying scrambling rules, selecting additional customer-created tables for transfer and so on.

System Analysis

You execute background activities that prepare the migration objects for transfer and generate programs for data deletion.

Data Transfer

In this phase, you execute TDMS header activities to select business process data. You also execute the final checks before data transfer to ensure that no significant changes have taken place in the repository of the sender system while your SAP TDMS project is running.

SAP TDMS deletes the existing data from the receiver client and starts the data transfer. You can lock the users in the receiver system so that no changes take place during deletion.

Post-Transfer Processing

In this phase, SAP TDMS makes a few post-transfer settings in the receiver system such as adjustment of number ranges and adjustment of Business Workplace tables.

If you had set a lock on users in the receiver system during data deletion, you can unlock the users now.

You can clear the temporary tables filled during the data migration in all participating systems.
