Migration to SAP HANA has been simplified using SAP SUM DMO tools:
As a prerequisite Migrating to SAP HANA database requires Source SAP environment to be in the Latest Enhancement Patch level(ex: EHP7). If Source SAP environment is on lower version of (ex: ECC EHP4) then this has to be Upgraded to SAP Latest Enhance patch before we perform Migration to SAP HANA.
If we go with Classic Migration and Upgrade approach, this will lead to two Business downtime’s. One for SAP version upgrade to Latest Enhancement Patch level and another downtime for Migrating the database to SAP HANA.
