Business impacts

  • Resource consumption

    Organizations must manage large SAP databases that grow with each business transaction. Massive data volumes use up expensive hardware resources, require additional administration support and increase costs. Archive data to minimize resource needs.

  • SAP system health

    Employees use SAP to process data and run reports and queries. Large amounts of historic data slow things down, impacting productivity. Remove historic data to make the SAP system more responsive.

  • SAP S/4HANA migration

    Organizations need to transfer databases when migrating from SAP ECC to S/4HANA. Large databases slow conversion, increase project risk and raise associated costs. Reduce data volumes to streamline migration.

  • Data compliance

    SAP data must be retained to satisfy regulations, such as tax or product liability legislation. Legacy archiving solutions lack sufficient retention and access controls, risking fines. Securely store archived data to stay compliant.

  • User acceptance

    Organizations must routinely archive data to maintain SAP system health and performance. Business users need access to historic data, making them reluctant to archive. Streamline access to archived data for wide user acceptance.
