DATA ARCHIVING -
THE FITNESS PROGRAM
FOR YOUR DATABASE
 
 
With mySAP Technology
Data Archiving, you can
safely and easily relocate
application data that you
no longer need for dayto-
day operations from
the database. The data
is stored in archive files
so that you can retrieve
it at any time. The result?
A slimmer database
that you can manage
more efficiently and
cost-effectively in the
long term
STAYING IN CONTROL OF THE DATABASE

Right from the outset when implementing e-business software,
you must plan how you will archive application data. Volumes
of transaction and master data can expand rapidly during productive operations. You must be able to ease the pressure on the database. mySAP Technology Data Archiving gives you everything you need to control data growth while ensuring that the data you archive is stored safely and remains readily accessible toyou.

Comprehensive checks at the application level guarantee that
your data is archived consistently and completely and that only
data from completed business processes is archived. When you
archive business objects, such as accounting documents, material documents, or production orders, they are securely stored so that you can retrieve them later if required. Archiving also gives you an added measure of security against accidental deletion of data: Only data that has been successfully archived can be deleted
from the database.
   
 
THE BEST-RUN E-BUSINESS RUN SAP
 

IMPROVED SYSTEM PERFORMANCE AND RESPONSE TIMES

The less data you keep in your database, the more efficiently
both the database and the application servers perform. Data
archiving makes sure that the database only contains data you
need for day-to-day business. You avoid the gradual impairment of system performance and response times that comes with keeping too much data. You also benefit from the reduced volume of data every time you run a report - with less data to search, the system finds the information you require faster.

COST SAVINGS FROM MORE EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES

By removing old data from the database, you keep a tight rein
on the volume of data the system uses daily. Resources, such as hard drives, memory, CPU, and networks, are used more
efficiently. As an extra benefit, reduced data volume reduces
administrative work, which keeps your overall IT costs down.
Data Archiving with mySAP Technology is the best method for
consistently removing data from your database. It is delivered in the Archive Development Kit (ADK), which is a standard service of mySAP Technology and supplies all the functions you need to archive data and retrieve it later.
mySAP Technology Data Archiving brings you the following benefits:
. Improved system performance and response times
. Cost savings from more efficient use of resources
. Increased system availability
. Reduced system downtime during euro changeover
. "Future-proof" archiving that is independent of hardware and software release levels
. Easy access to archived data
 

INCREASED SYSTEM AVAILABILITY

Less data means less system downtime, because you can do
administrative tasks in less time:
. Software upgrade
. Database reorganization
. Data backups
. Recovery
And you can archive data in online mode, so you don't need to
shut down the system during archiving.

 

 
REDUCED DOWNTIME DURING EURO CHANGEOVER

Changing your system from local currency to the euro results in a certain amount of system downtime while you convert fields in your database tables. The larger the volume of data in your database, the longer it takes to convert to the euro. mySAP Technology Data Archiving speeds up the process by reducing the size of the tables that you must change.
