A business division‘s duties often involves the sale or closing of business segments, such as plants or offices. Business data from the respective ERP and archive systems must be separated and transferred to a new system in an appropriate and consistent manner. When, for example, divisions are spun off or shut down, the data from the SAP system must be removed and transferred to the new owner or insolvency administrator. Especially in companies that often move or sell divisions, IT should implement so-called carve-out software.
