|Re:||Reminder: AMS Outages – SAP Enterprise Modernization – Sept 25 to 28|
Dear all AMS users,
This is a reminder that the first cutover dry run for the S/4HANA Migration will happen this Friday, September 25 at 5:00 p.m. to Monday, September 28 at 7:00 a.m. This dry run will simulate the Go Live weekend’s activities in early November, and will help to ensure all functions will continue to work properly as we transition to a new platform for our Administrative Management Systems (AMS).
As a result, all administrative management systems (see below for the specific affected systems) marked with an “x” will be offline during this time and on the future dates:
|Affected Systems||Cutover Dry Run #1
Friday, September 25 from 5:00 p.m. to Monday, September 28 at 7:00 a.m.
|Cutover Dry Run #2
Friday, October 9 from 5:00 p.m. to Tuesday, October 13 at 7 a.m.
|Pre Go Live Prep

Learning & Recruiting (SuccessFactors)
*The systems that have a checkmark will be available during the regularly published availability hours. See the website for more details.
- RPT instance/clone (containing October Month End + November 3 Bi-weekly pay) will be available to end users on Monday, November 2 (and beyond) so that Business Officers (and anyone else) can review their pre- migration balances and reports and begin/complete the reconciliation of their October Month End balances.
- Documentation will be made available to provide some guidance on how to “back out” the November 3 payroll activity from their Funds Management report balances so they can reconcile to their October Month End Monthly Statement of Account balances.
- The Student Information Systems will still be available during these outages.
- As we move closer to the Go Live date, additional detailed communication and documentation will be provided.
