Information Lifecycle Management

Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is the cumulation of the policies, processes, practices, and tools used to align the business value of information with the most appropriate and cost-effective IT infrastructure from the time information is conceived through it’s final disposition. We offer several services within ILM including data archiving, legacy system decommissioning, and GDPR/CCPA/Compliance solutions.

DATA ARCHIVING

Bigger isn’t
always better

Growing data volumes are becoming more and more of a concern for most enterprises. By 2025 IDC estimates that there will be 463 exabytes of data created each day. The cost of storage isn’t getting any cheaper and your move to S/4HANA can get costly depending on the amount of storage you need. 

SAP data archiving is the process of moving infrequently accessed historical data from closed transactions, from high cost storage to low cost archive storage, retaining real-time and same look and feel access from SAP screens. 

LEGACY SYSTEM RETIREMENT

Simplify your IT landscape,
lower your costs

As enterprises modernize their IT landscape legacy systems are often left behind. These legacy systems are often kept on to reference historical data, but in order to meet compliance regulations, legacy systems must be maintained and supported to ensure the data stored on them is accessible. Keeping legacy systems operational just to maintain access to historical information is expensive, systems take up valuable space, specialized support expertise is usually required, and it complicates your IT landscape.

Legacy System Decommissioning is the process of moving legacy data, including documents, to a repository where it can be easily accessed through modern technology. By doing this, you keep the data that is required for purposes such as audits, inquiries, and compliance regulations while significantly lowering your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

RETENTION MANAGEMENT & DATA PRIVACY

Be prepared for
the data privacy wave

The explosion of data combined with technological advances such as AI has made the demand for data greater than it ever has been before. With data privacy regulations such as GDPR and CCPA coming into effect and companies such as Facebook and Mariott making headlines for non-compliance, it is becoming critical for every modern enterprise to be compliant. It’s no wonder a staggering 79% of Americans are concerned with the way companies user their data.

SAP ILM data retention management mitigates risk, increases compliance, and reduces costs associated with SAP data growth.
