Key Takeaways

⇨ For SAP users, data archiving in any environment is challenging not only due to its technical complexity, but also as it’s something that isn’t often viewed as adding value.

⇨ In fact, data archiving becomes essential for SAP users when their systems have grown too large, and the business can’t access data in a reasonable amount of time.

⇨ PBS can help SAP users consider the multiple factors that make up a user’s goal. Factors such as reducing downtime for backups, reducing the size of the database, targeting a reduction of ERP system growth, reducing extraction time or whether that goal is implementing archiving to comply with change.
