Accelerated Archiving

Automate Archiving to Sustain the Benefits of Archiving Organizations with large volumes of data and documents must archive if they want to improve system performance, reduce risk, and lower the total cost of ownership of SAP systems. However, many organizations avoid archiving because it is a manual process and the complex data dependencies in SAP applications can make it difficult to sustain the benefits of archiving without expert IT staff monitoring the process. Dolphin Accelerated Archiving automates the archiving process, so organizations can move old, static data out of production systems, meet data retention policies, and monitor the progress of archiving jobs. Automated archiving ensures that SAP systems continue perform at peak levels and that benefits of archiving are sustained over time. Dolphin Accelerated Archiving is an SAP Add-on software solution that enables organizations to automate the process of archiving SAP data and documents. Users can quickly and easily configure archiving requirements for each SAP archive object, by data type: Master, Financial, Sales and Distribution, Procurement, Process/Production, and Technical. The solution then generates and runs the necessary variants in the order required to maintain data integrity and dependencies. Organizations use Dolphin Accelerated Archiving to meet data retention requirements and sustain the benefits of archiving over time. With the solution in place, organizations can keep system performance up, lower IT costs, and reallocate key IT staff to other IT  priorities.

Quickly Configure, Review & Run Archiving Variants

Dolphin Accelerated Archiving enables users to configure an organization’s unique ECC or BW archiving requirements from a
single application. Users can specify system-wide and object-specific archiving requirements in one simple configuration window, which makes it easy for IT staff or archiving leads to capture and define archiving requirements and for executives to review and approve the archiving approach.
The solution generates the necessary archiving variants based on the approved configuration and schedules the variants to run in the correct order to maintain data integrity. By automating these archiving tasks, valuable IT and business resources can be  reallocated to other more strategic business needs.

Support Multiple Archiving Strategies

The solution supports different archiving strategies so organizations can choose to take a more conservative or aggressive archive approach depending on needs. It supports:
  • Comprehensive archiving: Archive large volumes of static and business complete data to immediately reduce data volume and improve system performance or “catch up” on neglected archiving tasks and meet data retention requirements.
  • Targeted archiving: Archive data for specific periods, company codes, or data types to address specific business needs such as discontinuing product lines, vendors, or business units; carving out data to support organizational changes; or decommissioning legacy systems.
With Dolphin Accelerated Archiving organizations can use archiving for more than just “housekeeping”. They can support
strategic goals for growth, consolidation, and modernization.

Easily Monitor Archiving Progress

The solution provides a complete audit trail so managers can see exactly which archiving variants have been run and what
data has and has not been archived. Managers can use this to ensure that corporate archiving strategy is followed consistently, so their organizations can start to benefit from archiving even if there are limited IT resources or outsourced IT service providers.
