SAP® Success Story @ YASH Data Archiving Reduced Payroll Processing Time from 1-2 Days to a Few HoursIndustryLife SciencesGeographyUSThe ClientBoston Medical Center(BMC) is a private, not-for-profit, academic medicalcenter and the primaryteaching affiliate forBoston University Schoolof Medicine. Consistentwith its mission to providethe best in health careto all, BMC is the largestsafety net hospital inNew England and reachesinto the community as afounding partner of Boston Lack of Database Maintenance Caused Performance BottlenecksHealthNet, a network of 15 BMC deployed SAP R/3 4.6C in 2001 and the consequent high volume of data growth hadcommunity health centers become a major concern for the organization. With 4581 employees and more than 840,000serving more than a quarter patient visits in 2009, the total database size in the production environment was fast growing.million people annually. The company’s current SAP system was not efficient for reporting, queries and searches, as the system took a very long time to process and execute. They sought a comprehensive data archiving process for their SAP landscape to reduce the amount of live data that would increase performance and reduce the time needed for system backup activities. Data archiving is the process of removing mass data from the SAP database combined with ongoing storage of this data on to secondary media. After removal, this archived data is still accessible to end users via their SAP Standard Interfaces or third party tools. The large volumes of data accumulating in the SAP R/3 database has significant impact on system performance, dialog response times, time required for backup of the system and overall cost of utilization. BMC’s objective was to reduce the overall size of the database by 30% in the areas of Human Resources (HR), Finance and Accounting. YASH Technologies was selected as the strategic partner to define and implement a standard archiving process along with documented procedures for data archiving, recovery, and destruction.
