Archiving, a strategic component

With the PBS archive add ons you can archive more aggressively and take full advantage of SAP data archiving:

  • Seamlessly integrate database and archive data in common transactions (analogous to SAP standard).

  • Navigate to predecessor and successor documents within document chains at the click of a mouse. All resident and archived data is included.

  • Information Lifecycle Management (SAP ILM): The PBS archive add ons explicitly take into account the rule you have created in SAP ILM.

  • All SAP authorization checks are performed for the PBS transactions

  • 100% relief of the primary database through file-based archive data indexing

An essential component for handling rapidly growing data volumes is data archiving. With the PBS archive add ons, which are based on SAP standard archiving, you can archive very aggressively without risking a loss of information. For complete and convenient access to SAP archive and online data, PBS Software offers immediately usable supplementary solutions for SAP data archiving with the PBS archive add ons. They correspond with the corresponding SAP modules and extend SAP standard transactions and SAP reports with optimized archive data accesses.

The PBS archive add ons ensure that data from a legacy system can be displayed and evaluated together with new S/4 HANA application data. Furthermore, they enable simple data extractions, such as those required for data carrier transfers during operational and tax audits. The PBS archive add ons are standard software solutions and completely realized with tools of the SAP development environment.
