1&1 decides for Lean SAP Archive from KGS Software
Migration of the legacy archive is executed using the KGS migration tool – ROI of the solution expected 1.5 years after system introduction.
By: KGS Software GmbH
Most archive systems require their customers to purchase a license for each SAP user whose authorization profile generally grants access to the archive – even if they do not utilize the archive at all or do so without their knowledge. At KGS, on the other hand, the fee is based on the number of SAP systems. This results in much more predictable budget planning, because no additional license fees will accrue when customers add more SAP users.
KGS Archive Can also Handle Personnel Files
While the old archive will still be used for some of the documents (such as customer correspondence)
The migration was carried out with the KGS Migration4ArchiveLink tool specifically designed for this purpose. 1&1 did not have to get the legacy manufacturer involved in the migration, because it was possible to fully execute this process via standard interfaces. These ensure that the legacy archive interprets any access from the KGS migration server as a regular SAP access. This enabled the ISP to replace the archiving system in the background without interfering with daily business. As before, documents are accessed consistently in SAP via the accounting document, which includes the archived documents as an attachment.
