Sage X3 Case Study
A retail and wholesale warehouse and distribution supply chain organization found itself in need of strategic data archiving for Sage X3 after migrating to Microsoft Dynamics 365 as part of a merger. The eventual decommissioning of Sage X3 made data archival an essential requirement. To achieve this, they leveraged the Archon Analyzer and ETL tools to narrow down the multitude of tables, entities, and reports customized for supply chain management.
Archon Tools in Action
After thorough consideration, a selection of crucial entities (limited to a maximum of 9 dimensions) was chosen for archival. This data was meticulously extracted and loaded into the Archon Data Store. Additionally, specific requirements regarding data inquiry and retention policies were gathered. These were addressed within our in-house, cost-effective cloud archival ADS. It also offers a user-friendly interface for accessing entities, creating data representations, and making inquiries. To ensure comprehensive data management, a separate application manager was created to store miscellaneous documents associated with Sage X3 and its implementation for future reference.
Mandatory Archivable Entities
Here are some of the mandatory entities that were eligible for archival:
- Real-time financial records database, including ledger entries, accounts payable, and accounts receivable
- Customer and supplier data, encompassing contact information, purchase history, and communication records
- Inventory data, comprising historical stock levels, stock movement records, and historical EDI transactional data
- Historical reports of warehousing financials stored in the CMS
