SAP data archiving
Ideal work environment and maximum performance
Data archiving removes large volumes of data from the database that are no longer required in the system but need to be stored in a secure and analyzable manner. The aim of SAP data archiving is therefore to rid the SAP database of unnecessary dead freight without having to relinquish important information and data. Advantages include better response time behavior and swift processing of all data and information. The result is an ideal work environment and maximum performance of the SAP system.
Proactive strategies – a necessity
When implementing SAP for Retail, the topic of archiving must always be taken into consideration – better sooner than later. When used, the characteristics of the standard archiving components available in the SAP software help optimize processes in the SAP for Retail environment at an early stage. It therefore makes sense to develop a proactive strategy, so that you can enjoy the advantages right from the start.
Just consider this example: a retail company with around 50,000 articles and 1,000 stores quickly generates 50 million data records. This means that the size of its database may increase by several gigabytes every day. In order to prevent performance or even worse problems, it is essential to develop a concept early on and archive data at regular intervals.
