Data Archiving as a Strategic Business and IT Operation

PBS archive add-ons allow customers to archive data more aggressively as a result of:

  • Seamless integration of database and archived data in common transactions comparable to SAP standard

  • The ability to drill into predecessor and successor documents within document chains for resident and archived data

  • Integration with SAP Information Lifecycle Management (SAP ILM) allows PBS  archive add-ons take advantage of rules configured in SAP ILM

  • Integration into the SAP authorization concept so the same checks are performed for the PBS transactions

  • File based indexing stored in a file system and not the database as with SAP standard functioning

As part of an S/4HANA migration, PBS archive add-ons help ensure that data from a legacy SAP system can be displayed and evaluated together with new S/4HANA application data.  They also enable simple data extractions for compliance and audit.

Store SAP data in an audit-proof manner: Lean, cloud-enabled interface. Supports SAP ArchiveLink and WebDAV 3.1 protocols.

Decommission SAP systems: Retain and deploy legacy data in S/4. Evaluate legacy data from legacy systems transactionally in S/4.

Implement our Solutions via Professional Partners

PBS add-on solutions are standard software that can be seamlessly integrated in your SAP system. Nevertheless, projects concerning data archiving, data management, and data analysis require careful planning.


Our long-term partners who are highly familiar with the PBS products can provide you excellent support for these projects.



Smartly and efficiently migrate to S/4HANA with PBS archive add-ons

SAP S/4HANA provides a state-of-the-art ERP suite based on in-memory technology and designed to meet the needs of digital transformation. For SAP customers, the associated conversion to SAP S/4HANA provides technological and budget challenges that should not be underestimated. Successful migrations to SAP S/4HANA require sophisticated data management solutions that reduce the time needed for technical migration while supporting smooth, trouble-free transfer of all relevant ERP data.

This is where PBS archive add ons significantly contribute to minimizing costs by ensuring seamless, migration-free access to archived application data in both the ERP and SAP S/4HANA environment.
