Document Archiving securely stores original documents (FAX, PDF, DOC, TIF) and links them to SAP transaction data to make them accessible in the context of business processes.

Archived data is compressed and stored offline/NearLine • ↓ Administration costs (40%) – smaller databases result in reduced administration overheads • ↑ Application performance & Better utilization of system resources (10 - 20%) • ↓ System downtimes during maintenance & backups (40%) • Faster system restorations in case of unplanned outages. • Reduced IT footprint – through reduced databases sizes and decommissioning legacy systems • Mature, granular retention management for both SAP data & documents • Streamlined, paper-less processes, achieved through document archiving. Reduce procurement, facilities costs and document management costs • Regulatory compliance – meeting legal requirements through faster, accurate access to documents during claims, reviews and audits; thus reducing risk and costs of legal discovery

INR • NPV = ~2 Cr. INR • ROI in 1 year • assuming a current database size of 10 TB and YoY growth of ~25%
