Success Story

Fit for the future through migration to SAP POSDTA / Multi-ECC

Valora migrates its SAP and non-SAP systems and now benefits from a state of the art IT infrastructure

  • Large number of branches leads to heterogeneous system landscape with a multitude of SAP and non-SAP systems

  • Master data was merged in a customised Z-development in SAP POSDM without SAP support

  • SAP POS DM ran out of maintenance

  • Due to COVID-19, the project had to be carried out completely remotely

Diversity is harmonised and creates transparency.


  • Migration from SAP POSDM to SAP POSDTA on SAP CAR & SAP HANA

  • One of the first migrations of master data with standardised multi-ECC functionality worldwide

  • Use of SAP PO to transfer data from non-SAP systems to the standard structures of SAP CAR

  • Terradata for real-time analysis of sales data


  • 80% less customising through the introduction of POS DM

  • Harmonised master data in a standardised environment

  • Less error-proneness, faster search and correction and use of SAP OSS

  • Lower operating costs

  • Establishment of the technical state-of-the-art as the basis for a future-proof IT infrastructure

  • Elimination of redundant loading structures in SAP BW to Teradata


"The migration to SAP POSDTA, and thus the introduction of CAR, opens up many new possibilities for the future. We are now technologically up to date and can better implement the concerns of the business on the IT side! The standardised master data management gives us the security for a stable system landscape and less operational effort for support cases."
