Delivery Types

The SAP OS/DB Migration Check consists of three service sessions – OS/DB Migration Analysis, OS/DB Migration Verification, and OS/DB Actual Migration sessions – that are delivered by certified consultants through a remote connection. The delivery of the individual sessions takes place at key phases in the migration project. The Analysis session takes place after the project start, followed by Actual Migration session which performs the necessary migration steps. The Verification session takes place after the final migration is over. The Analysis and Verification sessions both have a normal duration of one day, where the actual migration takes on average of 80-120 hours to complete.
