1. Which data types can be migrated using the LSM Workbench – Batch input
recording technique?
Data types which can be migrated using the LSM workbench are field type,
field length, value table or fixed values (Wang, Zhang and Xing 2013). These are the
domains which are on the lowest level of the technical attributes.
How can you verify that data imported was conducted correctly?
When the import technique of IDoc or BAPI is applied, the checking of the
imported data is done by the program when it saves the data (Moser 2013). The
program verifies that if the supposed partner contract is on stand-by or not and is
available for another partner.
2. How many source structures are allowed per recording?
In the definition of structures of the objects bearing same name, ranked
relationship and object description if there are more than one defined structures a
pop up comes on the screen questioning the relationship between the two mentioned
structures (Wang, Zhang and Xing 2013).
3. How may you decide which migration method is the appropriate for your
business case?
If the quantity of data is very small then migrating the data manually is considered
to be easy and most feasible. But if the data volume is big then in that case batch
input technique is used (Xu, Wang and Sun 2013). But this technique creates
extreme long runtimes. According to the type and nature of data which is to be
imported a user can use IDocs, direct input or BAPI techniques.

4. Is the name of the non-SAP file length, important to specify and save the file?
Name of the file and the target structure is necessary for saving the file at the targeted
place with the length of the file to specify the type of the file (Song and Nakanishi 2013).
5. Now that you have used LSMW in 200 words explain the main purpose of
Data Migration in an SAP system. Please access theory and provide
references in your explanation.
Data migration is the last process of implementation of SAP. When data migration is
done the installation and customization of all applications is done. When data is migrated
easily it reduces the cost of SAP implementation significantly as it covers about 40% of the
total cost (Grolinger, Higashino and Capretz 2013). It reduces the total budget and total run
time of SAP where it is being implemented. The complexity of the data which is available
and processed in SAP makes it tough for the users to migrate data from the legacy systems to
the newer versions. The accuracy and reliability of data which is being migrated becomes a
key point to assign the roles and values in the newer versions where the data is migrated.
Resources which are unable to reliably resolve data issues rely on the data migration process
so that if there is any discrepancy then it can be identified and solved in the new system
(Appelrath and Ritter 2013). After data migration data cleansing is also done to the migrated
data which is also crucial for authentication of data. During the data migration reconciling of
the errors of the data of legacy system is also done which may be in large numbers.

5 Questions
1. What is PFCG? List at least one main advantages of using CFCG.
PFCG is a transaction code used in maintenance and authorization of data.
PFCG helps in the role maintenance by automating the processes of the task which
reduces the rigidity in the authorization process (Schumacher, Buschmann and
Sommerlad 2013).
2. What is the difference between single role and composite role?
Authorization data is contained by Single Role whereas, the Composite role is
known to contain single role (Lee, Krueger and Grund 2013). When the comparison is
done the user who is given the composite role automatically gets the single role.
3. What is the difference between Role and Profile?
Roles are considered as the collection of activities associated with the
authorization process such as reports, transaction and so on (Lee, Krueger and Grund
2013). But Profile are said to be the components of older versions of SAP.
4. What is the importance of Authorizations?
Authorization in SAP enables the system to authorize and access the users
with the given profiles and roles (Sands, Keppich‐Arnold and Henderson 2013). It
sets up the basic security of the module and data of SAP. Authorization concept
controls all the security standards in SAP.
5. What are the significance of the transaction codes PFCG and SU01?
Transaction Code PFCG is used for the creation of Profiles and Roles whereas
SU01 code is used for User Maintenance (Schumacher, Buschmann and Sommerlad
2013). After logging in as administrator the security of the SAP system can be
