Webinar: Archiving as a Starting Point for SAP S/4HANA Migration

Sep 3, 2020

On Friday, September 18, 2020, Christian Bleeker, IT sourcing expert and managing director of MITA Consulting, will explain how the right archiving strategy can pave the way for technical business cases in SAP S/4HANA projects. As part of a free webinar, he will be on hand at 10 a.m. to answer questions together with KGS archiving expert Jochem Brost.

For many companies, the switch to SAP S/4HANA is not only a time-consuming project, but also a costly one. This is not least due to the fact that HANA technology is relatively expensive compared to relational databases. Since the data volume is an exponential cost driver here, it should be analyzed before the migration which data or documents need to be transferred to SAP S4/HANA at all, or which can be excluded from the volume calculation through successful archiving.

Similar to a classic move, in the run-up to which it is sorted out what is important or what is no longer needed in the future, the preliminary work is also crucial when migrating documents and data to SAP S/4HANA. In this webinar, IT sourcing specialist, Christian Bleeker, describes which steps are a prerequisite for SAP transformation and what added value intelligent archiving offers, especially on the cost and performance side. The presentation together with Jochem Brost, an experienced KGS archive specialist, is divided into three parts and also includes a checklist for the change.

Participants in the free 30-minute webinar will also learn in concrete terms how the KGS archive solution tia® sets up archiving for S/4HANA. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to ask the experts individual questions. The webinar will also be recorded and then sent to all registered participants.
