Here at Proceed we always start a SAP Data Management strategy by getting to know our customers data, where it sits, how old it is and is it still required by the business, if so how often? Knowing these key factors about the data gives us an insight on what data needs to stay on our customer’s production system, what can be archived to cheaper tiered storage and accessed if required, and what can be removed permanently.
If you are planning a SAP Data & Document Management project we strongly advice you begin with this methodology. Here at Proceed we offer Assessments for SAP ERP, CRM, SRM, BW, which get our customers on the right road to a successful Archiving Project. If you are looking to migrate to HANA take a look at our RightSizing HANA assessments for Business Suite and BW.
