An archive migration is an operation which should never be taken too lightly, and nexQuent Savento can offer you a safe and efficient solution for this task.

There may be a wide range of reasons for such an archive migration:

  • Limited life cycle of systems
  • Restricted or lack of support for software and hardware
  • Increased maintenance costs for obsolete components
  • Increasing demands on the performance and reliability of the archive system
  • Cost savings resulting from reduced license and maintenance costs

The complexity of an archive migration depends, among other factors, on the following elements:

  • Heterogeneous system scenarios with many potential sources of error
  • Error incidents which may in the worst-case cause data loss
  • Inconsistencies in the legacy archive system
  • Provisions for customized archiving scenarios
  • Requirements for a fallback scenario throughout the migration operation
  • Strict compliance requirements, e.g. for audits
  • Tight project time schedules despite large data volumes
  • Implementation parallel to productive operation


The efficient and safe solution

nexQuent Savento has developed a project solution named Savento Migration Suite for archive migrations which is based on SAP® standards. This employs multiple steps and can be implemented very quickly and easily in the individual customer environment.
