New year’s resolutions for your SAP data management strategy

Johannesburg, 27 Jan 2021
Read time 2min 40sec

New year, new start – January is the time when most organisations are setting objectives and reviewing key areas of improvement within their business. Whether you’re looking to drive efficiency and savings, or planning a move to SAP S/4 HANA or the cloud, having optimised SAP data and systems in place are guaranteed steps towards achieving your business goals this year.

But did you know that 80% of resolutions fail by February? As experts in SAP archiving, decommissioning and content management, we can help make sure you reach your database management goals and implement lasting changes that will deliver the measurable business benefits needed in 2021.

Four new year’s resolutions for your SAP data management strategy:

1. Get lean: Drive significant cost savings and reduce business risk through effective SAP archiving. A typical saving for a customer that has a five-year-old 5TB system is 50%. Learn more about the benefits of SAP archiving.

2. Get fitter: Save up to 80% of the total cost of ownership and free-up internal resources to focus on innovation by decommissioning your legacy systems landscape. Learn more about decommissioning.

3. Get healthier: With a renewed look at your content management strategy, you will be able to drive business efficiencies and optimise your systems. Learn more about our content solutions.

4. Get more agile: By rightsizing your SAP database prior to a move the SAP HANA or the cloud, you ensure you only take across what is really needed, archive what you need to keep access to, and purge what is no longer required. Learn more about rightsizing.

Many of the SAP customers we work with have been running their ECC systems on-premises for years (indeed, decades), and tell us that important data management topics have been on their priority list, but have never quite made it to the top. But now, whether your priority for 2021 is to start planning that move to S/4HANA, reviewing your infrastructure and considering a migration to a hyperscaler platform, or simply to take costs out given new pressures on your organisation, starting with your SAP data strategy can deliver major benefits.

We will be hosting our first below webinar for the year called Evolving your SAP Systems in 2021:

Nick Parkin and Mark Darbyshire will share the latest thinking from SAP and Proceed, customer case studies, and both the business and technical benefits that can be achieved by making a new SAP data strategy your priority to start 2021. Join us on 3 February and hear why this is one new year’s resolution you will want to keep!
