In ERP Applications, Databases are growing exponentially and becoming
more complex for maintenance. Considering high volume of data and
customer-facing in PeopleSoft applications, it is very important for the
customers to maintain their applications to respond very quickly. For every
production database application, multiple copies exist for Development,
Testing and Training databases. While refreshing these databases with
production copy, the seldom-accessed data also copied to the respective
environments. In reality, we do not require seldom-accessed data to these
environments. This led the customers to think about moving seldom-
accessed data to off-line storage devices.

As industry ERP leaders, we understand PeopleSoft customers better than
anyone and we are developing custom PeopleSoft Archival tool, which has
the superior qualities than existing Archives products. And moreover, this is
a product from PeopleSoft experts.
                       Two-Fold Approach

We followed two-fold approach for our Archive process.

1. Archive : Archive the data which qualifies pre-defined Archive rules and
   move it to online storage devices called as History Database

2. Retire : We recommend our customers do not purge the data. Just retire
   it. Based on legalities, identify the data and move from online to offline
   low cost storage devices.

Our Tools comes with standards business rules which determines the
data to be archived. And we also know most ERP applications are not
just vanilla implementations. By considering this, our tool provide
flexibility towards

 • Defining custom Archive business rules

 • Defining custom tables for Archiving

 • Defining custom indexes

 • Differential Setup Data Archiving

 • Defining Flexible Inter module constraint rules
                       Module Constraints
   ERP implementation is not just one modules. If one module Transactions
   are dependent on other modules Transactions, our tools’ preset rules
   ensures all inter modules constraints are satisfied.

   Ex: Purchase order will not be Archived until it satisfies Voucher Archive
                        ARCHIVE ENGINE

                                                    PO1 ARCHIVED
                                       After Archive
   After Archive tools moves the data from current active database, there is
   a need to resize / shrink / Re-organize current production database. Our
   tools does this automatically after every Archive process.

   This process       ensures          performance     improvement            on      Production
