Companies are choosing not to switch off systems that are no longer productive because they have to be able to access legacy data at all times for legal reasons. Those who opt for a standardized process like the Managed Application Retirement Services (M.A.R.S.) will save time and money by migrating and historizing data records – while retaining access to all relevant data. In addition, it reduces the data stock by up to 85 percent, as superfluous and redundant data records are deleted.
With M.A.R.S. from T-Systems, you can historize data from legacy SAP and non-SAP systems on a central cloud platform. An analysis tool reveals how much and which data is used in which areas of the company. This enables you to identify which data streams and silos need to be removed or migrated. Historization reduces costs for operation as well as the necessary system and security updates. Your data are stored in an unchangeable, legally secure, and EU-GDPR-compliant manner. The historization is efficient and meets the requirements of the DACH region, such as data storage regulations (GoBD) in Germany, the Code of Obligations in Switzerland, and the Federal Tax Code in Austria.
To prepare for the future, companies need four building blocks: connectivity, cloud and IT infrastructure, security, and digitalization. With the data migration and historization service, you can analyze your legacy data, thin it out, and shut down legacy systems with peace of mind.
