Session title: Data Archiving in Readiness for SAP S/4HANA Migration

Who should attend this event?

SAP Managers, CFO, IT Manager, IT Director, Director of Global IT Finance Projects, S/4HANA Project Manager, ERP Manager, Data Governance Team, Data Steward, Application Data Architect, Data Quality Analyst, Chief Data Officer.

Global corporations that operate in high transaction volume industries generate huge amounts of data; that impacts their ERP systems performance, increasing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Additionally, IT teams are under pressure to support corporate functions with minimal resources.

Why should you archive data before migrating to S/4HANA? What are the tangible benefits of an ILM strategy for your business?

The SAP landscape is changing. S/4HANA and HANA memory will bring unrivalled business benefits for companies, yet it is important to start planning the migration at an early stage to keep data compliant while reducing the TCO of your SAP HANA landscape.

By archiving old data that is no longer in daily use, and by introducing ILM as part of your archiving strategy, you can significantly reduce your data volume prior to the move to SAP S/4HANA

What will you learn in this highly informative,“how-to” session?

  • Reduce the scope, complexity and total cost of your SAP S/4HANA migration project
  • Save on hardware and SAP HANA licensing costs
  • Automate your ILM processes to remain compliant and control data growth

Ensure your new S/4HANA system performs at its best and reduces your memory costs, helping you to deliver business benefits from day one. Learn how British Telecom have managed a move to the HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) in readiness for migration to S/4HANA

Key takeaways

Find out why leading corporations have implemented Data Archiving to maintain SAP system performance as their business data increases over time while lowering the TCO of their SAP system.

  • Learn how Data Archiving can provide significant savings on database storage costs when migrating to SAP® S/4HANA with minimised data footprint
  • Reduce migration times to move to S/4HANA
  • Understand how to manage ILM objects – from retention periods to destruction
