More and more companies are considering switching to SAP HANA. However, before they do so, they urgently need to archive data that is not used on a permanent basis. dataglobal has the solution – recommended by the top analysts at Gartner.
Database services, advanced analytical processes, application development, data access, management and open interfaces – the revolutionary SAP HANA merges all of these functions. SAP HANA is a powerful asset when it comes to integrated information lifecycle management (ILM). Companies want and need to operate more digitally in order to remain competitive, and that is why this solution from Germany’s largest software company is so attractive.
Compared to regular database management systems, SAP HANA has the advantage that it uses an in-memory database (IMDB). It does not access computer hard drives, but rather uses the computer’s RAM. This increases access speed between a hundred and a thousand times and enables the processing of huge amounts of data.
That more and more companies are showing interest in SAP HANA, and more existing customers than in the past are flirting with the idea of switching, is demonstrated by a survey from the German-language SAP User Group (DSAP), an association of more than 3,500 SAP customers.
The research and consulting institute Gartner advises companies that they need to get an overview of their collected data and then decide which data should be migrated before SAP HANA implementation. The leaner the package, the more cost-effective the SAP HANA implementation, and thus the higher the performance. Data within their document management system (DMS) that are not absolutely significant should be consistently archived by the company.
Expertise from dataglobal
Handelsblatt reports that many companies lack internal resources to master this complex task. In addition, there is the fear of data loss, and uncertainly due to legal regulations for retention periods and because of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This can be overwhelming and discouraging, according to the Gartner analysts Garth Landers and Derek Prior (we would be happy to provide you with their study “Plan for Data Archiving and Application Retirement Before Moving to SAP Hana” upon request). However, the costs that would result from not tackling this task would exceed those that arise from actually doing it.
According to Gartner, accepting support from third-party providers of enterprise content management (ECM) systems is a worthwhile option. The institute, which is located in Stamford, CT, USA, explicitly names dataglobal as one of five recommended contact points in this regard. By means of the dataglobal solution, even archived data can remain a part of the active workflow without having any negative effects on the performance of SAP HANA.
