Definition: SAP data archiving is the process of moving your ‘old’ data from the production system to archive files within a storage environment.

SAP standard archiving: Your SAP data and SAP documents archived into your chosen storage system.

TJC archiving methodology: Your SAP data and SAP documents archived according to TJC’s global recommendation of the best suitable solution (service and software). TJC ensures consistent data for future tax audit requests (called fiscal/tax archiving or fiscal/tax data extraction).

TJC global recommendation: Based on a fact-finding task of your business and IT strategies, detailed discussions with functional and technical leaders, and then widening the scope to include country regulations and compliance requirements.

SAP data archiving is a SAP recommended pre-requisite
for your system migration from
SAP® ERP Central Component
(SAP ECC) software and
SAP NetWeaver® technology platform to SAP S/4HANA®.

SAP data archiving enhances your IT resources management and facilitates GDPR data deletion.
