Customer Success

Leading Fortune 500 Industrial Manufacturer

After years of amassing SAP data, our client realized the massive amount of data would become an obstacle to their cloud migration strategy. Given the nature of their industry, purging data was not a viable option. Therefore, they needed a solution to offload SAP data from the core SAP landscape and yet maintain the ability to access it if required.

The client chose not to leverage their existing enterprise archiving solution, but rather leverage their SAP agreement which contained ILM licensing. Platform 3 Solutions worked with our client to design the appropriate ILM solution that supported their cloud migration strategy. Working with the client and the cloud providers, Platform 3 Solutions implemented an archiving process that archived data to cloud storage while maintaining access and retention management within the client’s SAP Landscape.

The net result optimized their data footprint for a much more efficient overall SAP cloud migration.
