Increase system performance, reduce costs and efforts, avoid risks by optimizing data volumes

Introduction

Just as businesses move fast and expand at a rapid rate, so does the amount of data in a SAP System. It is growing steadily within the different components and application scenarios of the relevant SAP products in use. Without efficient data management and a thorough housekeeping strategy, it is impossible to ensure an ongoing stable and adequate system performance as well as to keep the total costs of your SAP landscape in check.

SAP systems generate a lot of data which results in fast database growth and huge database sizes. Keeping an overview and managing this amount is a challenge of database administrators, but necessary for reliable and performant SAP operations. Especially in conjunction with a system migration, the minimization of data volumes is highly recommended. 

A framework needs to be implemented that allows you to find a balance between the business needs and IT needs. Our solution is to manage the data in your SAP systems by monitoring data growth and volumes in your system and also by taking appropriate actions to manage it.
Itelligence uses methods, based on data volume management best practices and concepts, common SAP tools and service offerings that assist you through all stages of the system and data life cycle.
 
With our Advisory Service we set up a long-term strategy for data reduction and handling of the corresponding future data growth based on 
  • How to avoid data generation?
  • How to summarize / compress data?
  • How to delete data (e.g. housekeeping jobs)?
  • How to archive data (e.g. archiving objects)?
 

Data transparency
Get transparency of the system landscape data consumption and data distribution, growth rates, the age of data as well as possible reduction potentials and application customizing needs.

Better SAP System Performance & Efficiency
Faster system response times and in general an overall improved system performance.
System downtime (e.g. migration, upgrade, conversion) gets minimized meaningful, too.
Increased data quality ensures that only business relevant data is kept on the online database and/or in in-memory.
 
Costs
Less hardware resource requirements is tantamount to reduced hardware costs (e.g. Disk, CPU, Memory), optimized storage costs and additionally minimized efforts in administration tasks.
 
System Availability
Short duration for system backup and recovery.
 
Supportability
Less database and administrative maintenance efforts.
 

Main features of the service offering are:
