What are the requirements of modern Data Governance and why is archiving such an important part of the equation?

How can you strike the right balance between reducing overall TCO of the SAP data environment with the need to implement and enforce data retention policies and comply with Data Governance programmes?

When implementing a Data Governance strategy, organisations often overlook the need to include a digital archiving solution for the long-term retention and preservation of data. This is crucial to ensure compliance with data privacy laws and other business regulations. But how do you achieve this in practice?

What will you learn in this session?

Why should data archiving and controlled data deletion policies form a critical part of your overall Data Management strategy? Why this is such a crucial part of a total Data Governance programme?

This session will outline how your company can guarantee meeting regulatory requirements while being able to enforce appropriate secure access controls across the data landscape for reporting, tax and audit purposes. This is especially relevant when an organisation has offices or Group business in many different countries.
