SAP Data Assessments

Get to know your SAP data

What is involved in a Data Assessment?

Each of Proceed’s SAP Data Assessments are quick, straightforward and non-invasive, using non-confidential data supplied by you.  To extract the data you simply run two standard SAP transactions and export the results into a spreadsheet.

Proceed will then analyse the supplied data and produce a report showing you opportunities to reduce your database volumes.

Our complimentary Data Assessments are available for 4.6c, 4.7, ECC5 and ECC6 including CRM, SRM and EWM systems, SAP Business Suite, S/4 HANA Business Suite, RightSizing Data for HANA (prior to migration) RightSizing Data on HANA (Control data growth once on HANA), RightSizing BW for HANA and RightSizing SAP BW

Service Description

SAP recommends removing data which is no longer needed in everyday business processes from the database.  SAP archiving is the only method supported by SAP to remove application data from the database in a consistent, secure, and comprehensive manner. Before starting an SAP archiving project, you need to know how much disk space is occupied and by what data.

The results of the assessment will be presented and discussed during an onsite workshop or webinar which covers:


  • Archiving requirements
  • Breakdown by table of what can be achieved
  • Guidelines for archiving policy
  • Achievable database reduction
  • Assessment of Data
  • Advise on SAP archiving project plan
  • Applying SAP best practice, residence and retention times.
  • Dependencies to other applications (DART, BI, print lists, document archiving)
  • Recommended next steps
  • Approximate timescale of a Archiving project based on assessment results
  • Appliance Specification (for HANA RightSizing)

Service Value

The data assessment report enables you to plan the next SAP archiving project steps, efforts, and budget. It gives you an insight into your SAP data structure and explains how to improve your system performance, optimize your storage requirements, and fulfil legal requirements through archiving.

The service also provides SAP best practice business and architectural advice and enables you to accelerate and prioritize your SAP archiving project.
