For kgs, this year's DSAG Annual Congress 2016 ended with great success. The renewed increase in visitor interest - the organizers recorded an all-time record of 4,500 participants - was also reflected at the stand of the specialist for SAP archiving. Not only did the number of leads exceed that of the previous year, but their quality also increased once again. "You could tell that it was mainly decision-makers and IT managers from their companies who were out and about in the aisles," says Jochem Brost, Marketing Team Leader at kgs.

Many conversations at the booth also focused on what can be done to make the bridge to SAP S4 HANA® a success. The kgs approach, which - unlike traditional DMS and archive providers - fits ideally with the SAP strategy, fell on fertile ground.

Under the title "ECM is dead - long live the archive", kgs customers TRUMPF and Knauf Gips presented their successful migration projects away from a proprietary ECM system to a lean archive at the DSAG Annual Congress 2016. Despite the late time of day, the lecture room was packed with 51 interested parties. A sign that the SAP community can no longer avoid streamlining its DMS and ECM solutions - and thus inevitably ends up with the specialists from kgs.
