SAP Carve Out solution by Codilog : Dataconversion

Your stakes / issues

A “custom” solution you can use to adapt your SAP system to all of your structural change and reorganization problems.

  • Modify your organizational structure in SAP (company, division, purchasing organization, etc.) after a merger / divestment of activities, SAP carve-out, new management in Business Units, etc.
- SAP Carve-out - SAP system splitting
An extraction of part of your activity must be carried out from your SAP system to another. CODiLOG offers several options to extract the data or copy the system and delete the information not to be extracted.

- SAP account migration plan 
Migrate a chart of accounts from one company to another chart of accounts (IFRS9 project). Recodify the accounts within the entries from a mapping file between the values of the old accounts and the new ones.

- SAP merger / SAP spin-off
Merge several SAP company codes into one code or split one SAP code into several. The conversion is done over the entire history or with a retroactive date at the start of the accounting year.

- Recodification of SAP references
Recodification of articles, customers, suppliers, commercial organizations references within data flows and basic data.
  • Change one or more processes
  • Bring your SAP system into compliance with new regulatory standards (IFRS, SEPA, etc.)
  • Harmonize / reorganize your databases (recoding)
  • Correct the penalizing effects of a bug

More generally, perform a transformation, in principle impossible in SAP:
  • with the least possible impact on users
  • while keeping a maximum of transactional information (document No., creation/modification date and user, document flows, etc.)
  • with complete traceability

While taking into account the following issues:

  • Benefit from the perfect continuity of “work in-process” in the new organization
  • Maintain traceability (original documents and unchanged flows)
  • Maintain coherence at all times in the new configuration (history migration)
  • Complete the project within short timeframes and at lower cost


DataConversion® can retroactively manage/adapt your organization, process or structure changes (SAP Carve-out / SAP account migration plan / SAP merger / SAP spin-off / Recodification of SAP references) in SAP with a minimum of operational impacts.

It is a unique tool suite and methodology developed entirely by CODiLOG, which can be used to transform the data in SAP in total security.

As opposed to canceling/recreating (the solution that will be proposed to you by a “traditional” consulting firm), DataConversion® doesn’t try to produce new flows but rather to transform the existing flows so they adapt to your new organization.

Throughout the definition and qualification process for your transformation, we work with you to:

  • define a pertinent transformation strategy that respects your stakes
  • ask your users to concentrate on the functional expression of your transformation so we can determine their consequences in SAP (to everyone his expertise)
  • automate all processes



  • Scanners are used to systematically do a prior analysis
  • A precise and well-established methodology is used to guarantee the integrity of the data in SAP
  • Your transformation is described using a configurable tool
  • All transformation steps are carried out in a dedicated cockpit
  • A tool developed solely in SAP using ABAP is used to process very large transformation volumes, in a closed system or open system

  • DataConversion offers many advantages:
    • functional: complete continuity of flows (historical and in-process)
