What is meant by cut off date?

SAP system is configured as per the requirement of the client. The system is ready for the client to use. The client now needs to migrate from the Old system (Legacy system) to the new SAP system. The migration from the old system to the new system is known as cut off date. The old system is switched off and the new SAP system is switched on. The data will be migrated from the old system to SAP. The data will henceforth be entered in the new SAP system. To have a smooth switch over from the Legacy system to the new SAP systems are devised the cut off procedure.
