Right-size your move to SAP S/4HANA

Migrating to SAP S/4HANA and utilising the powerful SAP HANA memory can bring unrivalled business benefits to companies, but the migration can come at a high price. IT teams are often faced with paying out significant HANA storage and licensing costs, plus there’s the ongoing challenge of managing a growing database. That’s why it is essential to develop a detailed Data Management strategy in early stages of your transition to S/4 HANA and in doing so, minimise TCO whilst also remaining data compliant.


SAP Data Management is the MOST effective way to manage your data lifecycle. Implementing a proper Data Management strategy from day one can decrease the TCO of your SAP HANA landscape. Organisations planning to move to S/4 HANA want to migrate as little data as possible to keep migration time and effort low and avoid unnecessary hardware costs. It is possible to minimise the cost and time of their migration by archiving closed data or destroying data if the proper retention policies are applied.

Our approach to SAP data management

TJC helps organizations to reduce the complexity, total cost, and duration of their SAP S/4HANA migration projects by providing consulting and SAP-Certified software solutions to optimize data volume management.

  • SAP Data archiving: Achieve a minimum 95% data archiving ratio by automating with TJC’s Archiving Session Cockpit (ASC). There’s potential to go one step further and achieve a 100% archiving ratio, removing all data associated with obsolete organisations, such as companies that were sold or ceased trading).
  • Decommissioning of legacy systems: Retire legacy data that you do not want to migrate to S/4HANA but must retain for legal and audit reasons. Re-access legacy data at any time by using ELSA, TJC’s cloud-based and SAP certified solution.
  • SAP ILM & GDPR: Manage data lifecycles from creation to retention and ultimate destruction whilst complying with international data privacy laws. Define rules and policies reflecting where data is stored, how long data is retained, and when it can be destroyed.

TJC Group has a wide expertise in handling projects across the SAP Business Suite (CRM, SRM, EWM, BW, NLS, APO, CMS, etc.) in a wide range of industries.
