Prepare Your Enterprise Data for a Move to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA

Live Q&A with Dolphin Experts on Crafting a Successful Information Management Strategy

June 13, 2017

Panelists: Dolphin's Dr. Werner Hopf and Ken Campbell
Date: Tuesday, June 13

Whether you are planning a move to SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA or to SAP S/4HANA, the same principle applies: a sound information management strategy is key to your success. A well-crafted strategy will help you reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for these new in-memory systems, decrease downtime during the migration, and minimize risk by enforcing compliance with internal and external retention requirements.

Dolphin CEO Dr. Werner Hopf and Senior Solution Architect Ken Campbell joined SAPinsider for a discussion on how proven data management strategies and best practices can simplify the move to SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA, and how to achieve this goal in your own project.

Questions answered in this Q&A session included:

  • What are the top three things I should know about data management before moving to SAP HANA?
  • When should I start preparing my data for the move to SAP HANA?
  • How does data management change when I move to SAP HANA?
  • Is there a difference between data aging and data archiving in SAP HANA?
  • Do I still need to archive after moving to SAP HANA?
  • What kind of data compression can I realistically expect when I move to SAP HANA?
  • Do I need to think about data management if I’m doing a fresh install (greenfield) of SAP S/4HANA?
  • How is a data management strategy for SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA different from one for SAP S/4HANA?
  • Why is data management still a concern if I’m using an in-memory system like SAP HANA?
  • Will I still be able to access data from my legacy systems once I move to SAP HANA?
