Doxis4 archive "powered by SAP NetWeaver"

ILM for SAP documents and data using the SER archive

(04.10.2014 - Berlin) The Doxis4 archive has once again proven its suitability for the secure long-term archiving of SAP documents and data in official SAP test procedures. SAP SE has certified the integration of the archive interfaces Doxis4 HCS 7.02 and Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM 01.00 with SAP NetWeaver. SAP users can thus rest assured that documents and data from their SAP systems will be safely and reliably stored in the Doxis4 archive from SER.

SER's standard Doxis4 HTTPContentServer (HCS) interface has once again been certified (in accordance with SAP specification BC-AL 6.20) for archiving content from SAP via ArchiveLink. Furthermore, the newly-certified Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM interface (in accordance with SAP specification BC-ILM 3.0) enables users to apply active retention management by defining retention periods for archived SAP content.

"We are delighted that our Doxis4 archive has once again successfully passed the challenging functional test scenarios of SAP SE and may now bear the label Powered by SAP NetWeaver," explained Klaus Eulenbach, Managing Director of SER Software Technology GmbH and Head of Development at SER. "For many SER customers, the SAP ERP system represents the central application for mapping business processes. In order to guarantee the performance of the SAP system, the load on the SAP database must be regularly reduced. To reduce this load, data from completed business periods or completed business processes is stored in an archive. With the appropriate interfaces of our Doxis4 archive, Doxis4 HCS 7.02 and Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM 01.00, our customers can maintain reliable SAP systems and can now also manage active retention periods for archived SAP documents."

The classic ArchiveLink interface from SAP in conjunction with the SER standard interface, Doxis4 HCS, provided no functions for managing retention. These functions were first introduced with the launch of the SAP add-on component SAP NetWeaver ILM. Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM expands the SAP components by adding a WebDAV storage solution with functions for checking data retention and conducting correct retention management. These functions comply with SAP SE's BC-ILM 3.0 specification.

Information Lifecycle Management for SAP

Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM analyses retention parameters transmitted by the SAP system and translates them into the appropriate settings for the Doxis4 retention service. This not only protects archived data from the SAP database from being deleted before it should be, it also enables users to set retention parameters for documents and print lists that have been archived using Doxis4 HTTPContentServer in accordance with the ArchiveLink specification.

Doxis4 WebDAV Connector for ILM includes:

  • Functions for archiving SAP data in one standard format
  • Standardised retention management for SAP data and SAP documents
  • New options for decommissioning old SAP systems

Application cases for retention checks, for example for accounting processes where documents such as invoices are routinely generated in large quantities during ongoing business operations. This type of data is subject to a number of legal regulations when it comes to its retention. SAP NetWeaver ILM takes account of these regulations by providing examination areas and retention rules that can be assigned to particular types of documents. A document cannot be deleted until the end of the retention period has passed. In some legal circumstances, companies may be required to define deletion deadlines for documents. However, some documents may be relevant for ongoing legal cases. Any such document can be marked and locked for legal purposes and cannot be deleted until the case in question has been closed and the lock has been lifted.
