DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT –
ARCHIV MIGRATION

Archive migration ensures that your electronic documents are transferred quickly and securely from one or more source archives to the archives of the future target system. It often occurs as part of a carve-in or carve-out or system merging within a company. Upstream or parallel, the transfer of the corresponding SAP data to the archived documents must be taken into account. Displaying these documents is in many cases one of the essential basic functions. In the case of SAP database migrations, it should be taken into consideration, in good time, that archived documents depend on the SAP data to be transferred, which, for example, must be available as part of audits in the future target environment.

Whether invoices, master data documents, technical documentation of machines or quality certificates – the migration of your documents is selective: only the archived documents that belong to the transferred SAP data in the target system and are needed in the future are migrated. As soon as it has been clarified which SAP data needs to be migrated to the target system, we take over the complete technical work for you to determine which are the relevant archive documents.

The procedure of an archive migration can be divided into the following steps:

Concept phase

  • Determine the migration-relevant archive documents
  • Define the archive migration method depending on the migration of the SAP data and the system landscape
  • Ensure the structure of the (archive) infrastructure

Migration phase

  • Read documents from the source archive
  • Write documents to the target archive
  • Validation of the correct transmission of documents via check numbers
  • If necessary, maintain SAP administration data

Documentation phase

  • Documentation of migration in special SAP tables for auditing purposes

Audit-proof document and archive migrations are possible for all standard SAP archive scenarios as well as for more complex applications. They can be extended to their individual customer requirements:

  • ArchiveLink
  • SAP Document Management System
  • SAPoffice documents
  • Folders Management
  • Archiving Files
  • DART files
  • Print lists

In an archive migration, the archive provider and the archive infrastructure in the target system are not always the same as in the source system. There are a lot of different archive providers. A direct archive migration at the archive infrastructure level is not technically possible with different archiving methods in the source and target system. Since our archive migration runs via the standard interfaces in SAP, we can transfer the most diverse archiving techniques into each other. Auditing reliability and efficiency are therefore ensured by our process.

We offer archive migrations in joint projects together with our partners as well as independently as full service providers. For every common SAP data migration method, we can migrate the archived documents for each customer. Common methods are the table-based data migration method and the LSMW approach. As part of the latter, we also like to create the administrative data for the archived documents in the SAP system.
