Conclusion:

  • With the new process approach, we can upload all master records and transactional data without custom developments and easy to use this process.



  • I can see the only one, time taking activity to maintain the data in uploading a file with various tabs, however, this app will help us to upload legacy data/mass data for running business to loading into the SAP S/4HANA system without any technical support.



  • This package/solution is default available from SAP S/4HANA 2020 along with LTMC and from 2021 onwards we have only one solution i.e “Migration your data – Migration cockpit(old)” and no more LTMC available from SAP S/4HANA2021 onwards.



  • Projects created using transaction LTMC (for SAP S/4HANA) or the app “Migrate your Data – Migration Cockpit (Old)” (for SAP S/4HANA Cloud) cannot be accessed using this new app.
  • We can still use LSMW / BDC for upload data if the business still using SAP-GUI.
