Data Archiving is a service provided by SAP, which helps to remove mass data from the database that the system no longer needs online, but which must still be accessible at a later date as required. The following graphic illustrates the archiving process. Archiving objects are used to write data to archive files, which can be stored on other media
The SAP NetWeaver Information Lifecycle Management component helps companies enforce retention policies on data and store the data securely.
ILM enables you to decommission redundant systems while preserving full auditing and reporting functionality for the archived data.
Data archiving : Analyze data volumes, securely move data from database to archive, and efficiently access archived data.
Retention management : Manage and enforce all retention policies across the enterprise, destroy data based on applicable policies, use secure ILM-aware storage, set legal holds and run the destruction.
System decommissioning : Retire redundant systems and legacy systems to reduce total cost of operation and the complexity of IT landscapes, apply retention policies to the extracted and archived data, run reports on the data, and interpret and understand data in archives without the help of the original system
Document management is how your organization stores, manages and tracks its electronic documents.
Document Management System (DMS) enables scanning, storage, retrieval, sharing, tracking, revision, and distribution of documents and hence information and data they contain.
Records Management is systematic administration of records and documented information for its entire life cycle, from creation or receipt, classification, use, filing, retention, storage to final disposition.
Many organizations rely on paper-based principles to manage electronic records, but this does not work with the growing volume, velocity, and variety of information organizations create and receive. Organizations need to streamline and automate their processes for capturing, storing, and managing their digital-born and digitized records throughout the records lifecycle.
Imaging allows organizations to capture paper-based information and convert it to electronic images that are stored in a computer electronically.
Imaging is how you will remove the paper from your office, digitize it, and enable a more streamlined business process.
