SAP ARCHIVING AND
Content enabling SAP business processes
SAP Archiving and Document Access encompasses a number of components including Document Scanning, SAP Data Archiving and storage of any content using ArchiveLink.
Whilst these solutions may offer substantial benefits to customers, the added benefit of extending this archiving to a number of the standard document storage in SAP like BDSCONT or SOFTCONT is often misunderstood and can result in large reductions in the SAP database. Some customers have experienced a reduction of in excess of 750GB in their database. This growth is normally as a result of the use of GOS (Generic Object Services) by the end user which may not be visible to management, the SAP team or database administrator.
