KGS Migration4ArchiveLink for Document and Data Migration

Document Migration Made Easy

KGS Migration4ArchiveLink software improves the SAP Data and document migration process for businesses of all sizes.

In all situations where it becomes necessary to switch your SAP storage systems, media, or replace the entire archive system, a document and data migration is required. These migrations are often intensive, but they can be simplified, so your business can continue day-to-day operations with little effect.

Document Migration Protection

KGS Migration4ArchiveLink can be used to thoroughly monitor legal requirements during archive transfers and provide evidence that all objects have been transferred correctly. With KGS Migration4Archive Link, the migration can be comfortably carried out through a web browser, which controls all aspects of the project.

The use of KGS Migration4ArchiveLink is independent of the existing archive solution – every SAP ArchiveLink-enabled archive can be used as a source and target system. This migration solution allows switching to the new archive right away, at the beginning of the project.

Additional Benefits of Migration4ArchiveLink

  • Intuitive control and configuration for ease of use
  • Full traceability of the migration status down to the document level
  • Migration status reports as needed
  • Minimization of migration risk

Documents are accessible throughout the migration process, due to the special proxy server functionality of the KGS migration software. This allows you complete access to needed data and documents throughout the process, for added convenience.

The KGS Migration4ArchiveLink server manages the document access and the migration independently from any underlying technology and is completely transparent to the user. All SAP ArchiveLink-based business processes continue to function as before, without change.

Your next document migration can be carried out quickly and easily, and with minimal administrative effort. Do not let the migration delay switching from an out-dated, inefficient, and maintenance heavy archiving solution. If you looking to carry out a document and data migration for an SAP system, contact KGS today!

KGS User Story from - Armin Rehm
“Thanks to the KGS solution, we are working with state-of-the-art technology. Document access is very fast, which is quite a feat, considering that the system has to deal with 500 million documents. What our internal departments needed was a solution that could ensure that any front-end customer consultant taking a call has the required document on screen within a second.”
Armin Rehm, Service Manager DMS / EnBW Group

“Traditional archive systems generally require a dedicated database server. This generates additional administrative costs, which we can avoid with KGS ContentServer4Storage, because this tool directly accesses the SAP tables.”

Hagen Hoss, Platforms and Storage Solutions Architect / Coats

“KGS ContentServer4Storage is able to map ERP-related
document archiving processes much leaner,
more efficiently and in a more integrated manner than
any other archive operated in an SAP environment.”

Philip von Melle, Managing Director / Globetrotter

„Thanks to the KGS corporate product
license, each SAP workstation automatically
also serves as an archive workstation. This
means that relicensing is a thing of the past.
The solution will thus have paid for itself in
only two years.“

Florian Beck, Head Application Management / Knauf

“What makes our approach so fundamentally different from other ECM solutions is the lean architecture of the KGS application. We now only need a single server that even operates without a database. The Windows file system acts as the physical storage, so no proprietary storage solution is required.”

Peter Pollich, Head of Infrastructure & Application Management / Rhein Chemie

“The KGS migration software truly made a seamless transition from the old to the new archive. Our users did not even notice that a migration was taking place; there were hardly any disruptions.”

Oliver Fischer, Head of IT / Loewe

„When sounding out the market, KGS was the only provider whose solution met our special requirements within this unique system landscape.“

Volker Blum, Head of SAP system basic support unit / Trumpf
“The simple customizing process delivered by KGS ZADOC makes it easy to define attributes to set up different document types.”
Andreas Lupfer, Team Leader SAP Application Support / Röchling Automotive

„With the KGS archive running in the background, we have been able to carry out a complete SAP transformation within the company, from SAP ECC through MaxDB and SAP Suite on Hana, and finally, to S4/HANA. We didn‘t have to adapt anything in the archive throughout the whole process and were able to concentrate solely on the implementation of S4/HANA.“

Dr. Marco Lenck, Head of Group IT / Döhler GmbH
