As we like to say: “If you have not done any archiving yet, start today. If you are already archiving, do more! We are passionate about this, as we believe that many companies miss a trick by not making archiving part of their business-as-usual processes. In fact, it is estimated that only 1 in 3 SAP UK customers do any archiving at all.
One element that comes up time and time again, is the lack of a plan to continue archiving once an archiving project has been completed. Not-surprisingly, this is not always something that has been thought of, as typically the driver behind an archiving project is not data management. It is more likely a larger project such as moving to a hyperscaler or migrating to SAP S/4 HANA.
