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:

*The systems that have a checkmark will be available during the regularly published availability hours. See the website for more details. 

Please note: 

  • 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.
