Simplifying the SAP Landscape with Lightweight Content Management

SimplifiedConentManagementROI

Traditionally organizations that run SAP systems have implemented separate enterprise content management (ECM) systems as a repository for unstructured information (documents and images). However, this approach adds cost and complexity to the environment because it:

  • - Requires a completely separate and parallel server infrastructure, with associated licenses and maintenance costs.
  • - Requires users leave SAP applications to access the information they need from the ECM systems.
  • - Requires additional IT staff to support this separate infrastructure.
As more organizations are looking for ways to simplify the SAP landscape by moving to SAP HANA and retiring aging systems it's time to look for a more modern approach to content management as well. In a recent Q&A with SAPinsider Dolphin CEO Dr. Werner Hopf and CTO Vishal Awasthi discuss how organization can adopt modern content management strategies that will enable organizations to remain agile for future growth and change. Dolphin's lightweight, service-based Content Archive Service (CAS) enables companies to store unstructured data wherever it makes the most sense for the business, in the cloud or on disk, yet still access it easily from SAP applications - thus lowering storage costs and simplifying access. Customers who have adopted the Content Archive Service have saved 50% on maintenance costs for legacy ECM systems and report that the solution is much easier for both the IT department and users to manage.
