The SAP archiving specialist currently offers the most comprehensive support for DSGVO-relevant archiving scenarios.

Neu-Isenburg, March 12, 2018. The entry into force of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is approaching; with SAP Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), SAP users can implement the requirements arising from it. The prerequisite for this is an archive that has implemented and certified the ILM interface. Content Server is certified as an SAP archive for the latest versions of all four archive interfaces relevant for implementing the GDPR: BC ILM 3.1, BC-AL 7.40, S/4-BC ILM 1.0 and S/4-BC-AL 7.40.

Almost all archiving systems on the market are certified for at least one of the existing SAP archive interfaces: Classic ArchiveLink is the standard, followed - already more thinly spread - by SAP ILM, ILM 3.1 and the ILM interface for SAP S/4HANA. kgs, however, combines certification for all interfaces relevant under the DSGVO in its archive solution. The company thus underpins its position as a leading specialist for SAP archiving, archive migration and document management in the SAP environment.

Jochem Brost, Team Manager Marketing at kgs: "SAP users are currently facing two significant changes with the stricter data protection regulations and the new S/4HANA product generation. There are several approaches for the underlying archiving via the various interfaces. Consequently, an archive that is certified for all relevant interfaces gives SAP customers the greatest room for maneuver. The Content Serve can be used by SAP users, whether ECC 6.0 or S/4HANA, with both ArchiveLink and ILM."
