Thank you for joining the Improvement Project Kickoff: SAP Customer Connection for "Data Archiving & SAP NetWeaver Information Lifecycle Management (ILM)" call on September 20, 2017.


Scope of project includes:

  • Data Archiving removes mass data, which the system no longer needs, from the database, but which must still be available for reporting. For the most part, SAP's data archiving concept is based on the archiving objects of the Archive Development Kit (ADK).
  • SAP NetWeaver Information Lifecycle Management (SAP NetWeaver ILM) enhances the SAP standard delivery with the ability to manage the lifecycle of live and archived data based on rules. SAP NetWeaver ILM uses ILM-specific, enhanced functions of data archiving.


In this Customer Connection project for Data Archiving/ILM we will focus on functional improvements and roundups with small effort, related for all releases in mainstream maintenance.

  • SAP NetWeaver Information Lifecycle Management (SAP NetWeaver ILM)
  • Archive Development Kit (ADK)
  • Archive Link functionality in context of ADK


Out of scope:

  • Application specific ILM Objects
  • Application specific Archiving Objects
