Severn Trent Water has deployed archiving software from Macro 4 to ensure its new SAP system runs smoothly.

The product is designed to improve the performance of SAP by moving historical data to an archive database.

Many people tend to leave historical data such as older financial transaction information within the live system instead of migrating it to an archive. According to Macro 4, this can lead to slower response times and higher running costs.

Myron Hrycyk, CIO at Severn Trent Water, said, "We want to follow best practice by having a plan in place right from the start to address how we archive static and historical data away from the live database. Managing the size of the database will help ensure the system performs at optimum levels and keep operational costs down."

Macro 4's Columbus archiving software takes static and less frequently accessed data out of the live system and holds it within a separate archive server, where it is stored in line with compliance requirements.
