Nick Parkin, CEO of Proceed Group offers his top tips on what you can get done to manage your SAP data during lockdown, for some pretty immediate ROI:

  1. Start archiving of non-business data - think about IDOCS, applications logs, change log, workflow and others.
  2. Schedule some reorganisation of the database - specifically DB2 and Oracle. Generally most companies don’t have enough maintenance windows to schedule these tasks. However, now is the time to take the opportunity to reorganise your database, clearing dead space and helping to improve the overall performance of the system.
  3. Build an archive strategy and keep TCO under control - this is always put at the bottom of the pile! Why not make a start? The free guide we are offering will help make this process as lean and efficient as can be.
  4. Review your old legacy estate - all companies have significant debt and risk tied up in old legacy systems and in addition to helping with your active SAP environments. Planning a decommissioning project and developing a strategy will give insight to valuable cost efficiencies.
