Most projects have some attributes that you consider to be key for success. Archiving projects have some unique characteristics compared with traditional ERP projects.
Identify Measurable Benefits
- Consider Business Risks such as litigation along with technical benefits.
- Estimate gains in back-up and recovery times and improvements and decrease in risk.
- Evaluate cost saving by moving older data less expensive hardware.
Evaluate Baseline Data Integrity
- Are there data continuity issues today?
- Will the removal of older data resolve or improve integrity issues?
- Do standard Integrity Reports run without issue?
- Have multiple data conversions taken place over time?
Think about data in Business Terms:
- Think about transactions and not just the largest tables
- Procure to Pay
- Order to Cash
- For example, Invoices should not be archived without considering the status of a Sales Order
Consider current and future purging requirements
- Create virtual bank boxes of data today that may be easily disposed of in the future
- Can some of the data be purged directly today?
Make the data easily accessible
- Allow users to access the data via the native platform, such as JDE
- Keep archived data in the same format as production for easier use by native and third-party reports
