Mitigate risk, smash costs and accelerate SAP archiving!

If cold data is not properly archived, stored and/or destroyed, it opens it up  to a myriad of risksImproperly handled data or documents can result in fines (or even jail time!), not to mention reputational damage, due to compliance infringements on legal regulations such as GDPR, SOC, HIPAA and GLBA, business disruption, and revenue loss. On top of this the volume of data is still continually growing and costs are rapidly increasing.

KEY BENEFITS

Save on Total Cost of Ownership 

Reduce and manage future data growth by archiving to low-cost storage such as the cloud. Save on additional costs such as expert resources and proprietary hardware or hardware requirements for software installation – OutBoard is natively integrated with SAP and is ABAP based so you can easily incorporate support, operation and maintenance activities with your existing SAP processes 

Leverage 100% of your SAP data – Access all Areas 

Even though your data and documents may be archived to the cloud – the way you access them remains the same via your standard SAP transactions – making everyday access not just easy, but seamless for endusers. Aside from that, we know how valuable historical data is for reporting and insights – OutBoard makes your archived data transparent, so it can be leveraged for reporting and business intelligence. 

Stay Compliant – Retain. Assess. Destroy.  

When your data is no longer required, and even more so, when it is legally recommended to destroy the data, Retention Management handles this effortlessly and ensures that your data is destroyed and purged based on rules set up for all business objects. Of course, there is always an exception to every rule. When data is under investigation (e.g., as part of a litigation), our Legal Hold component ensures that this data is stored separately and securely and is not destroyed as part of the normal lifecycle until it is released independently. 

 Accelerate Implementation – Don’t just archive. Automate. 

Let OutBoard do the hard, tedious work for you. Run an analysis to understand your archiving potential and the space you can save. OutBoard uses this analysis to automate the archiving so you can just schedule, sit back and wait for progress updates via email!
