SAP S/4HANA Migration

SAP customers have to migrate to the new software generation SAP S/4HANA by 2025 due to SAP’s announcement of sunset support for SAP ECC 6.0. The migration promises an agile application landscape helping customers master the challenges of digitalization.

Tackling this challenge will only be possible with system-independent management of the entire lifecycle of legacy data and documents, making it an integral part of any SAP S/4HANA and SAP C/4HANA landscape. To fulfill all of these requirements, Data Migration International has developed Information Management Platform JiVS IMP.

Rightsizing for SAP S/4HANA

SAP systems grow. Additional storage capacities are implemented time and time again to accommodate this continuous growth and ensure adequate performance.

The only suitable solution to this problem is to extract all data and documents from existing ERP systems before deleting all unnecessary information from the live systems. Storing the extracted data including their business context on a neutral, central and modern platform is essential.

Java-based Information Management Platform JiVS IMP does exactly that. It enables users to reduce data volumes in legacy SAP systems by up to 95 percent.

However, JiVS IMP not only serves as archiving solution, but also plays a strategic role in daily operations. As soon as data and documents are not needed in live systems anymore, they can be transferred to JiVS IMP to keep SAP S/4HANA systems lean and efficient.

SAP Landscape Optimization

Digitalization is rapidly changing market environments for global companies. IT landscapes are increasingly relevant, taking on a strategic role – which they are not always ready to fill due to their heterogeneity. SAP systems are often at the center of heterogenous IT landscapes. Many companies have made it their goal to consolidate their IT environments to one central SAP solution.

If companies extract all data and documents from existing SAP systems and store them on a central, legally compliant platform, they only have to migrate some of them to the new central SAP solution. Storing the unchanged data, the platform guarantees compliance and authenticity. JiVS IMP makes this possible as a modern Java-based Information Management Platform which helps to centralize and harmonize heterogenous SAP landscapes.

Through decommissioning legacy systems and making JiVS IMP an integral part of the new IT landscape, goals like higher agility and level of innovation can be realized during consolidation projects.

EU GDPR / CCPA

The European General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and other regulations such as CCPA make storing data more complicated than it has ever been. Before the regulation was passed, companies tended to store data and documents for as long as possible. Now, complying with GDPR  / CCPA also means being able to delete personal data if necessary. If companies do not comply with the mandate requirements, it may result in significant penalties.

The solution to this problem is to extract data and documents from any legacy system – SAP, Baan, Peoplesoft, Microsoft Axapta, Oracle ERP or customized systems – and store them on a modern, neutral, and central platform. This Information Management Platform is called JiVS IMP. Through built-in retention management functionalities, it supports customers in complying with EU GDPR / CCPA.

Mergers & Acquisitions

It’s always a good thing if acquisitions go through – for management. Because as soon as the contracts are signed and the champagne bottle is empty, the IT department has to get to work.

The solution to this problem is decommissioning legacy IT systems. For application retirement to be successful, however, all information, data, and documents have to be migrated to a central platform and stored in a modern data format.

This modern central Information Management Platform is called JiVS IMP. It can manage the entire lifecycle of legacy information, data, and documents. Thanks to JiVS IMP, all legacy systems can be decommissioned after a merger or acquisition. JiVS IMP reduces the operational costs by 80 percent and more compared to the continued operation of legacy systems. At the same time, the platform reduces scope and complexity of migration projects because customers only need to transfer relevant and up-to-date data and documents.

With JiVS IMP, M&A projects do not seem so daunting anymore, and the IT department becomes as agile as management expects it to be.

IP Protection

Companies make history through inventions, products and services. The most important asset of any company is intellectual property, which only takes center stage if international investors or competitors are intending to acquire the company.

Many forget that intellectual property is not only at risk when acquisitions or cyberespionage are concerned. Carve-outs can also be detrimental for companies if they are not careful when transferring data and documents, potentially revealing sensitive company secrets.

The only solution is a neutral, cost-efficient and central platform for storing and transferring relevant business information to buyers: enter Information Management Platform JiVS IMP.

Business Divestment

Corporate restructuring sometimes makes divestments of business necessary. It’s essential that buyers have all relevant business information, data and documents to ensure continued business operations. As such, sellers have to tackle the challenge of identifying, extracting and transferring relevant data. This is usually a complex and laborious task tied to high costs.

Considering all aspects of divestments, the only solution is a neutral, cost-efficient, and central platform for storing and transferring relevant business information to buyers. JiVS IMP is exactly that. A modern Information Management Platform. Buyers can access business information in a neutral and legally compliant format, while JiVS IMP ensures the protection of intellectual property which is especially important if divestments of businesses involve competitors.

Decommissioning Banks

Financial crisis, the zero-rate policy, and ever-more strict regulations pose many a challenge to banks, and private banks that cannot keep up with compliance requirements are sold or settled with rescue companies. In the aftermath, it doesn’t matter whether or not business is terminated – all customer data has to be preserved for ten or more years.

Data Migration International has developed a solution specifically for banks: JiVS Banking Edition. Among other things, it allows users to process legal and customer requests, and once they find what they were looking for, they can make the information available to the requesting parties electronically or as printed documents.

With JiVS IMP Banking Edition, bank rescue companies can easily decommission the acquired legacy systems. The solution not only guarantees legal certainty and compliance, but also reduces operational costs by 80 percent or more compared to the continued operation of legacy systems.

Data Center Consolidation

Global companies know the struggle: their data centers are dispersed over many countries and time zones, leveraging different technologies and following different standards. Once companies want to consolidate their datacenters, they soon realize that they cannot just ship their global servers to a central location and be done with it.

The solution to the problem is to extract all data from all applications and systems of the global heterogeneous IT environment and store them in a modern but neutral format, on an independent platform.

Java-based Information Management Platform JiVS IMP will do the trick. Thanks to JiVS IMP, the decision regarding which data and documents to transfer to the central ERP systems is only based on business criteria. Obsolete subsidiaries can be decommissioned completely.

JiVS IMP is precisely that, a modern Information Management Platform that allows customers access business information in a neutral and legally compliant format.

Harmonize & Consolidate

Global companies know the struggle well: IT landscapes grow over time, serving as a continuously changing and evolving testament to a company’s history. The resulting complexity becomes nearly unmanageable over time. Many companies have therefore been investing a lot of money, time and effort into consolidation and harmonization projects of their IT landscapes. The goal is one central system for all global subsidiaries, especially for ERP systems; however, this vision rarely becomes a reality. Companies simply lack a clear, comprehensible strategy for their legacy data and documents.
