The Crucial Role of Data Archiving Prior to S/4HANA Migration
SAP S/4HANA is powered by the cutting-edge HANA in-memory database platform, which is designed to handle terabytes of data effortlessly thanks to its columnar database structure. However, one major consideration for S/4HANA’s future operation is the substantial amount of RAM required to run the in-memory database. This type of database is approximately five times more expensive than traditional databases, as its licensing costs are volume-based.
- Fiori Apps that access S/4HANA data using oDATA services do not retrieve archived data because standard oDATA services are not configured to select archived data.
- Analysis for Office reports also do not automatically display archived data from S/4HANA.
- When creating reports based on the ACDOCA table, it is essential to consider the document status and total balancing lines generated during the archiving process.
- In a central finance architecture where one or more source systems connect to a central finance system, standard reconciliation reports do not take into account the archived data.
