Overview of the SAP ILM functions
With this module, SAP ILM allows the reduction of data sizes by outsourcing redundant data to an external storage system. As a consequence, in-house software systems are alleviated and a continuous performance is guaranteed. To enable integration with the other two components, Retention Management and ILM Retention Warehouse, the functionalities of the archiving system in SAP ILM were significantly upgraded.
Retention Management defines the complete lifecycle of a single data item. Various tools help to define end-of-life scenarios from data creation to final destruction based on relevant legal requirements.
This module is divided into the segments System Shutdown and Auditing / Reporting. During the system shutdown, the data is removed from the standard system and stored in an external storage system (here enaio®). For this, the well-established instruments for data archiving are used. Auditing / Reporting refers to the use or extraction of specific, archived data for auditing or reporting purposes after system shutdown.
Integration of enaio® with SAP ILM
OPTIMAL SYSTEMS was already able to cover almost 100% of the requirements. enaio® is an individually tailored solution for relevant company processes. Especially the SAP integration was a crucial factor in our decision-making process.
