Carve Data Out of SAP Systems to Support Mergers, Acquisitions, Sales and Divestitures
Mergers, acquisitions, sales and divestitures have become common occurrences in our economy. These changes impact most levels of the business, particularly in large corporations that run sophisticated systems and create volumes of data. For this reason, Dolphin created the Business Unit Carve-out process to split out certain parts of an operation from a productive SAP® instance. It is based on the SAP standard Archiving Development Kit (ADK) with customizations to facilitate full carve-out of target data and add safeguards in to prevent carve-out of non-target data. This came about as a result of requests from several Fortune 500 companies who were in the process of merging and/or divesting large portions of the ongoing business activities.
The Business Unit Carve-out process targets whole areas of business operations based on organizational entities specific to each unique business object. It removes the objects and all related data as a complete data object.
