Data growth remains IT's biggest challenge.

Gartner

With the average growth rate of SAP databases at 25-30% per year, are you facing increasing business disruption due to exploding data growth in HANA coupled with dwindling IT budgets?

Maybe you are overwhelmed by what to archive as well as the risk of taking critical data out of production. Or is the thought of long, costly and complex archiving projects in preparation for S/4HANA and BW/4HANA possibly even combined with a move to the cloud weighing heavily on your mind?

Are you struggling to gain a single view of all of your productive, archived and decommissioned SAP data – in order to gain real value and actionable insights? Nearly 50 % of all organizations feel they are not or only slightly effective at maximizing value from data.

Added to this, there is the worry of repetitional damage or revenue loss because of non-compliance due to legal requirements and ensuring seamless data access? (The average compliance cost for organizations across all industries worldwide is 4.5 million €).
