A clear and structured approach to SAP content management delivering ongoing benefits

Key benefits of content management

Documents, everything from email correspondence, electronic attachments and even paper files, are often forgotten when looking at data management.  This can lead to unnecessary costs and loss of productivity.  Addressing Enterprise Content management, as part of your overall data management strategy, deliver many advantages including:

Simplify business processes

The storage of documents in SAP are typically not optimised. By effectively structuring document storage and reviewing workflows, can drastically simplify associated business processes and increase individual productivity.

Reduce costs

Documents can take up a large amount of storage space, resulting in unnecessary costs. By only retaining the documents that are needed, deleting what is no longer required and efficiently storing the documents that needs to be kept, will drive significant savings.

Increase efficiency

By linking key business documents to SAP business transactions within the SAP user interface, you will gain a 360-degree view of content in context. This will allow for greater business intelligence and make your documents work harder.

Regulatory compliance

As with data, documents can’t be retained indefinitely due to regulatory requirements such as GDPR. To reduce the business risks associated with non-compliance, it is essential that a retention management strategy is put in place for all documents.

Fines up to £17.5M or 4% of turnover for non-compliance with personnel information disclosure

Up to 50% data reduction in stored attachments

A structured, expert approach is key to ensure optimal storing, archiving and retrieval of documents in SAP
