Data archiving in SAP ECC refers to the process of moving infrequently accessed or outdated data from the primary database to a separate, more cost-effective storage system, while still keeping it accessible for legal or business requirements. Archiving helps maintain system performance, reduces the data footprint, and lowers the total cost of ownership.
In the context of SAP ECC, data archiving is particularly important because the system relies on the high-performance, in-memory HANA database(Suite on HANA) or anyDB. As data volumes grow over time, managing data efficiently becomes crucial to optimize system performance and ensure the system continues to run smoothly.
Reduction of the resident time is key for controlling the data growth. This can only achieved if business users are convinced that they can access the data the same way as in SAP ECC. ArchiveHub Archive Data Reporting for SAP ECC fills this gap completely making the business users happy to see the archived data in modern Fiori applications.
