Digital archiving from the cloud

The solution is based on the ImageMaster archive service and meets three key challenges: The growing volume of data and complexity of system landscapes, along with ever increasing commercial and tax regulations on the storage of digital documents.  Companies and authorities are required to electronically archive tax-related documents for up to ten years and more. Smart Archiving Services meet these requirements and stand up to tax and other audits.
As with all applications based on ImageMaster, the digital archiving solution is equipped with dedicated access management.  Only authorized persons or systems are permitted access. T-Systems ensures secure operation of the digital archiving solution.

Use Cases

Modular expansion of archiving functions

Smart Archiving Services have a modular structure, which means that different functions can be added as needed. In addition to SAP ERP, ILM and Messenger archiving, users can request other business applications for digital archiving for SharePoint and e-mail, as well as for compliance archiving and retention management. The result is a uniform archive backbone which can be accessed by all employees – regardless of the time or place.
