Migration solution for SAP archives

KGS Migration4ArchiveLink is a tool for the easy and controlled migration of SAP archive data and documents. With the advent of electronic archives came the need for document migrations, for instance to switch to new storage systems/media or to replace an entire archiving system. KGS Migration4ArchiveLink allows you to perform such migrations via a web client regardless of which archiving solution you are utilizing. The process is simple, fast and requires very little administrative intervention.

User-friendly design

Archive migrations should neither be complicated nor should they entail any risks. What sets KGS Migration4ArchiveLink apart from traditional migration solutions is that it enables companies to immediately and smoothly change over to a new target archive. The migration is executed transparently using a proxy server-based process that does not disrupt user activities.

Security and control

A web client interface provides authorized users with simple access to detailed status and progress reports on the migration process. Additional features include error reporting as well as intuitive configuration, control and migration management functions. Transparent audit trails and an automatic step-by-step documentation of all migrations, traceable down to individual documents, allow you to execute migrations in line with generally accepted accounting principles and ensure compliance with regulatory and legal provisions.
