Datavard and West Trax start collaboration to support SAP migration projects

Software and consulting company Datavard and SAP system analyst West Trax, have joined forces. Their joint expertise in SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA, SAP BW/4 HANA and SAP ITOA supports SAP customers in preparing for and implementing migration projects.

Future-oriented companies require solutions for their developed and complex SAP systems to keep up with the pace of digitalization. Many are considering a migration to the in-memory platform SAP HANA. “Synergies of our core competencies will be a major benefit for SAP customers preparing for migration,” explains Gregor Stoeckler, Datavard CEO.

“IT decision-makers lack facts about the health and usage of their SAP systems,” says Diana Bohr, West Trax CTO. With Datavard, we support them in analyzing SAP systems to prepare and run successful migrations”. The West Trax Maturity Model categorizes developed and complex SAP landscapes by assessing their health and usage, and so prepares them for future demands.

Datavard has developed a roadmap for companies planning a migration to SAP HANA, SAP S/4HANA or SAP BW/4 HANA – from strategy to planning, and from SAP HANA sizing and testing to the migration of data, already successfully implemented on numerous projects.
