How Archive Central is used today

Retirement of legacy systems

Organizations are reducing operational costs by retiring legacy systems which can be expensive to support, or perhaps running on platforms which are insecure. Legal retention periods for business data delay the retirement of legacy systems. Archive Central provides a modern data management platform for record management.

Right-sizing of ERP systems

Businesses are looking for solutions to control and limit data growth in their ERP systems. This includes options to extract and archive data and documents they no longer require immediate access to. Archive Central provides a simplified, secure repository into which you can unload data, making your ERP system more cost-effective, as part of a transformation project.

Access to the Knowledge base content
Business Transformation

After a merger or divestiture, the organizations involved may need to hold a selection of data for compliance reasons. Archive Central provides a controlled mechanism to share the relevant master and transactional data to the relevant parties for regulatory and governance purposes.

Data archiving for non-SAP data

Many IT systems have a hybrid scenario which includes best-of-breed solutions. Archive Central is optimized for SAP systems, but it also supports most other systems. Whether this is in addition to an SAP system or another stand-alone IT system, Archive Central stores the data and its corresponding metadata to be able to recreate business entities in a way the user needs to view them.

Realize your project

EPI-USE Labs will support your project to export the data from your current Production environment and create the new Archive Environment:

SAP Archive Extractor

Part of the process is to export the data with SAP Archive Extractor. The extractor uses the Data Sync Manager™ SAP object model that EPI-USE Labs has mapped for the past 25+ years to ensure the data is coherently exported and the links between the data remain intact.

Technical architecture

  • In line with best practices, the solution is deployed as a hosted SaaS solution.
  • The application leverages elastic scaling and storage mechanisms, provides a variety of hosting locations (in compliance with GDPR and other privacy legislation) and uses CDNs for fast responses globally.
