The architecture for Consolidator is quite straightforward. There is the concept of a “controller” system upon which all activities relating to the consolidating process are executed. Separately, there are participating systems which are those SAP systems being consolidated. You are able to define and execute multiple consolidations between various systems via the same controller system.
The two systems that are to be merged, normally copies of production are assigned as System A and System B. After the analysis phase the target system can be selected, the other system then becomes the source.
A separate destination system can also be assigned which can act as the development environment for the target environment. This assists by helping the merge of changes that may be continuing through the target landscape.
