SAP ERP: Archive with Confidence
PBS archive add ons are modular, ready-to-run software packages for SAP ERP. They enhance the SAP data archiving functionality and enable seamless and comfortable retrieval features for archived SAP data from many important application modules. Archived application data can be displayed simultaneously with database data using PBS archive enhanced display transactions and reports. Archived data is clearly marked by the PBS archive indicator.
The complete information remains transparent to end users. With its large solution portfolio PBS provides software tools which are specifically designed to comply with the requirements of effective Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) in SAP ERP.

- Large Compression 75%

In addition to data stored in the database, PBS archive add ons also display information from archive files. PBS transactions contain the same user interface as original SAP transactions. With the integrated access of PBS display transactions, users can easily navigate to preceding or subsequent data within a document flow, even if some or all of the documents have already been archived. Linked original documents (e.g., scanned invoices) are displayed in the familiar way via the SAP ArchiveLink interface. PBS archive add ons are pure software solutions and utilize the SAP Archive Development Kit (ADK).
After an SAP data archiving job has been completed, a PBS indexing program creates index information corresponding to these SAP archive files. This PBS index is stored in a compressed format in flat files outside the SAP database, either in a local file system or in external storage systems. Thus, accessing archived data does not put any load on the SAP database. Because PBS display functionality is analogous to original SAP display transactions and reports, users do not need any training. The response time for archived data retrieval via PBS archive add ons is comparable to database access. PBS archive add ons are ready-to-run standard software packages.
PBS installation is as easy as installing hot packages; adjustments to new SAP releases and updates are provided to customers as part of a support services agreement. PBS archive add ons also support data extraction from database and archive to cover legal requirements and audits.
