Accelerate Migration to SAP S/4 HANA with Data Archiving
SAP S/4 HANA offers a lean architecture, better user experience, and access to modern technologies like artificial Intelligence, the Internet of things, and advanced analytics. Additionally, with SAP announcing the end of support for ECC 6 by 2027, existing SAP customers must plan to migrate to SAP S/4 HANA. However, this transition can be costly, especially for IT teams that must contend with large amounts of data accumulated over the years, including from acquired and divested business units. Additionally, the costs associated with HANA storage and SAP licensing can quickly become prohibitive if left unmanaged.
SOLIXCloud Archiving can help optimize SAP S/4 HANA migration by offloading historical data from primary SAP systems and decommissioning entire legacy SAP instances, thereby reducing the data footprint for migration. The reduced data volumes will make migrations faster and more efficient while also reducing the TCO of the new SAP S/4 HANA. All this with retaining continued access to the archived data for audit, compliance, and business reporting.

Benefits of Archiving before Migration to SAP S/4 HANA
Efficient Migration to SAP S/4 HANA
Migration to SAP S/4 HANA is a complex process, especially when consolidating and migrating data from various active and inactive SAP systems. With a reduced SAP data footprint post-archiving, much of that complexity is eliminated or significantly reduced. Also, with only a smaller volume of data to migrate and validate, the entire migration process can be faster, cheaper and more efficient.
Lower the TCO of SAP S/4 HANA
Archiving infrequently accessed data prior to migration rather than migrating it to expensive HANA database can lead to substantial costs saving. Additionally, implementing a post migration ILM strategy with SOLIXCloud active archiving can continue to help manage data growth in SAP S/4 HANA leading to ongoing cost savings in the form of reduced storage and licensing costs, reduced complexity, and lower costs for maintenance and backups.
Ensure Data Governance & Compliance
SOLIXCloud archiving provides a centralized archived repository with comprehensive governance and compliance features, making it easier to manage and govern data to meet data retention, legal hold, data privacy, and data security requirements. Furthermore, SOLIXCloud provides an auditable trail of all archiving activities, allowing organizations to track and monitor all activities, further enhancing data governance and compliance.
Continued Access to Archived Data
Active access to archive data throughout its existence is essential for business and compliance teams. SOLIXCloud provides authorized users real-time access to the archived data independent of the source system via powerful text search, custom reports, forms, and print report archiving, enables critical application reports to be tagged, indexed, and made searchable in SOLIXCloud. Additionally, archived data is available for access from third-party BI tools for analysis and reporting.

Print Report Archiving
The Solix Virtual Printer feature enables users to print important legacy application reports and have them ingested into SOLIXCloud Enterprise Archiving. These reports are denormalized, indexed and tagged for easy text search and retrieval by end-users.
Solix Search provides comprehensive text search, structured reports and adhoc queries
Text search provides simplified user access to enterprise business records (EBR) which are denormalized views of a specific business function such as invoicing. EBR's organize data into templates (i.e. invoices, customer data, spreadsheets, and other documents) for easy self-service access to complex business processes.
Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is a best practice for managing data throughout its lifecycle
ILM solutions are intended to improve the performance of enterprise applications, reduce infrastructure costs and provide governance, risk and compliance frameworks for enterprise data. With ILM, organizations are able to optimize their infrastructure with a tiered enterprise data management strategy, and establish a control framework for proper data governance and compliance.
Industry analysts point out that up to 80% of data is not current, and the value of data declines dramatically over time. ILM classifies data at creation and moves data across infrastructure tiers based on business rules and retention policies. ILM ensures that only current, active data is consuming valuable tier one compute and storage resources, and that all data is governed by compliance policy throughout its lifecycle.
