Does VCAMP handle both homogenous and heterogenous migrations?

Yes, the technology developed for VCAMP will enable speed, efficiency and accuracy in both homogenous and heterogenous migration initiatives. Heterogenous migrations, requires strict guidelines from SAP are followed - there are logical user exits built into the automation and design supporting those user exits to ensure that all migrations completed with this technology are supported in Production.

In a VCAMP to AWS automated migration approach, how much of the migration effort is expected to be handled by the customer?

The end state of every migration still requires the customer, or the owner of the application, to be involved. However, we have minimized the level of effort required by the customer to the following key areas:

  • Extracting the source data - Velocity provides the script and recommended process to follow so that our customers can assign this task to a resource that is familiar with the environment and has the correct access.
  • Interface and Integration testing - Velocity provides a set of test scripts and direction to enable our customers to validate the operation of the target environment. These customer resources are only engaged for short windows of time.
  • Cutover Window - Velocity requires that customer resources be available to validate the final user acceptance testing.

Although we aim to minimize customer efforts involved in the migration, there may be other limited situations where involvement is required.

Our organization has existing relationships with Global Systems Integrators. Can we still take advantage of the VCAMP technology but use our Global Systems Integrators to assist with our migration efforts?

Yes, it is not mandatory for organizations to use only Velocity resources for migration projects. VCAMP is designed to be used by teams that are responsible for the migration. Your current System Integrator or Professional Services preferred partners can leverage the VCAMP technology along with their deep expertise of your business to deploy an effective and efficient migration solution for your enterprise. Velocity has also created enablement programs where we train and support project teams to use the VCAMP technology to deliver customer solutions.
