Even if “cloud computing” is intensively discussed at the moment, “business-relevant” or “sensitive” data and documents are often managed conventionally concerning the topic SAP archiving.

Long-term archiving for your SAP system environment

You are possessing an already implemented infrastructure resp. you are cooperating with a hosting partner or provider in this field?

Important for you: Your existing infrastructure can be used for the realisation of the inPuncto solution. The inPuncto software for SAP is server-sided completely virtualizable. That means that an additional virtual machine for the archiving of sensitive data is used for the realisation of an archive server.

Related to the long-term archiving, the physical storing of this sensitive data can happen on your available media (worm, worm-able, SAN, NAS, jukeboxes, etc.). If you do not have any optical media, we can advise you about the equipment. We offer the complete solution concept for a safe long-term archiving: software plus optimally coordinated hardware.

Another advantage of the inPuncto software is that the entire management level of the data resp. documents is located in SAP. Our archive solution has no separate user or rights management because this all is already solved in SAP and you have already paid for that.

Because we do not work with proprietary formats or protocols but with SAP standard (RFCs, SAP-HTTP(S)), any formats can be filed in the archive. The entire document flow from the archive to the client is not carried out on the SAP application server but happens via SAP-HTTP(S) directly between archive and client.

Our solution for the long-term archiving of sensitive data for SAP is certainly SAP-certified

It acts like a SAP content server – but with more archive features, performance and security:

Archive functions, performance & security:

  • Thanks to simple recovery from the existing media, the whole archive for SAP can be completely recovered from seucrity media.
  • By usage of crypto-technology, your sensitive data and documents are highly safe towards the access on the level of infrastructure! (The SAP content server for example possesses only a pure compression mechanism).
  • Replication-Caches are no problem because customers are using this mechanism to work daily for example with "fast" hard disks - the replication server provides for example jukeboxes ar BlueRay drives.
  • On the basis of standard mechanisms of SAP, the implementation of the inPuncto archive can be carried out very easily because the design of the solution permits you a repository of up to 100 million documents - this number is comparable with well-known archives of third-party manufactures.
  • No redundant functions & no unnecessary addidtional investments: Because our solution sees SAP as "leading system". In opposition to the often mentioned document management system of our competing companies with redundant functions to SAP (like user management, rights/roles, workflows etc.), the software by inPuncto integrates itself seamlessly into your SAP system.
  • The solution for long-term archiving by inPuncto was certified by independent auditors.

Your benefits with the inPuncto solution

  • Maximal protection of the documents because no access can be initiated outside the SAP system. Only authorized SAP user have access. Infrastructure accesses (e.g. hardware admins) are made unreadable via crypto-technology.
  • Audit-proof: according to the entire system of processes, organisation, rights and technologies.

  • Decentral access: Several employees - also worldwide - can parallely activate and view archived documents.
  • Shorter search and response times because of the usage of the already known search and view mechanisms in SAP (less training periods of the employees; less inhibition level).
