Steve Peirce from TJC Group will present Data Archiving in Readiness for SAP S/4HANA Migration.

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 the data volume required for the move to SAP S/4HANA:

  • Reduce the scope, complexity and total cost of your SAP S/4HANA migration project
  • Save on hardware and SAP HANA licencing 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 a migration to S/4HANA.

    Key takeaways from this session:

  • Benefits of archiving before the move to S/4HANA
  • SAP ILM – an essential part of any archiving strategy
  • Residence & Retention – best advice for multi-national companies

  • Hear the latest User Group news, including an update on UKISUG Connect 2021 and our plans for 2022. Following the update we will run an open forum, taking questions, and listening your thoughts and feedback to scope the Ireland events.
