Objectives Reduce migration cost and risk with better content management Real-time business is now a reality with SAP® Business Suite powered by SAP HANA®. These new breakthrough applications bring analytics and transactions together on a single in-memory platform – so you can achieve even smarter business innovation, exponentially accelerate business processes, and simplify business transactions. As you migrate to SAP Business Suite pow- ered by SAP HANA, it is important to reduce your database volumes and ensure that your production data and related content meets all information retention and availability requirements. In fact, by establishing a com- prehensive, enterprise-wide content manage- ment system during the migration, you can minimize the associated costs and risks while building a strong foundation for your struc- tured and unstructured content management processes. The SAP Extended Enterprise Content Man- agement (SAP Extended ECM) application by OpenText can help both during and after the migration. You can reduce the size and cost of managing your large production data- bases through effective and highly accessible archiving. And with the SAP NetWeaver® Information Lifecycle Management compo- nent, you can also sunset legacy systems and enable automated, rule-based retention and destruction of information – all while helping to ensure information access and security.

Stay in sync as you transition to the SAP HANA platform When transitioning to SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA, ensuring continuity between your traditional SAP software land- scape and the new landscape is critical. With SAP Extended ECM, you can secure your information investment between both land- scapes. It’s a complete content management solution that integrates with your deployed SAP software applications.

SAP Extended ECM combines intelligent archiving and content-access functionality with complete document lifecycle support. It’s a single platform for enterprise content management that helps support all of your business needs. Collaborative project work- spaces and powerful search functionality enable people to share, review, and approve SAP and non-SAP content.

Cut the cost, risk, and inefficiency of large databases The true costs of the large volumes of data found in your SAP Business Suite applica- tions go beyond just the storage costs. Man- aging terabytes of data also requires extra staff time, power consumption, and down- time for maintenance, upgrades, and conver- sions. And people using the applications feel the impact as well with slower application performance. The powerful archiving func- tionality of SAP Extended ECM helps you re- duce the cost, risk, and size of your deployed databases while enhancing performance as well as data availability and recovery. Data archived through SAP Extended ECM is typically much smaller, and the software can support a mix of storage platforms, including those that use secure Write Once Read Many (WORM) data protection. Archived data, in- cluding scanned documents, can be quickly replicated for SAP Business Suite applica- tions and multiple-site disaster recovery. And SAP Extended ECM enables you to access regular and archived data together in your deployed applications, enabling IT to archive data sooner to shrink database costs even further. Reduce IT costs and effort by safely and quickly moving data and documents to a centralized, low-cost server for secure and affordable storage.

Ensure automated, compliant data retention and destruction With different reporting requirements around the world, today’s companies need smart and efficient ways to ensure that the data in SAP Business Suite applications is properly preserved and destroyed. For your deployed SAP ERP application, you can leverage SAP NetWeaver Information Lifecycle Manage- ment with SAP Extended ECM to automati- cally retain and destroy data based on multiple retention periods.

Data and associated content are destroyed based on expiration date, and you can maintain multiple data archives for different expiration dates. With SAP Extended ECM, you can also sunset legacy systems to save costs while preserving secure access to legacy data. And with a complete 360-degree view of online, offline, and archived documents and other content related to a given business process, people can accelerate task completion and make more-informed decisions every day.
