Two men - 8 terabytes

Initial situation

The multinational defense company Hensoldt archives its data and documents - historically - with IBM FileNet P8 This is time-consuming and cost-intensive.


IBM FileNet P8 is perceived as a kind of "black box", especially since Hensoldt always has to fall back on the provider and its FileNet experts in case of problems or changes.


By switching to the intelligent archiving solution tia® from kgs, Hensoldt has immediate access to the system and can make changes promptly, transparently and independently.


Where previously an entire team from the external provider was required, today two SAP Basis and IT infrastructure experts are sufficient to reliably archive the 8 terabytes of data. Only 10 percent of the costs are incurred and archiving is leaner because an additional system level is eliminated.
