Baan Database Archiving

By incorporating Database Archiving strategies with mission critical business, organizations are able to address and mitigate performance, storage and data management concerns. As one of the original ERPs, there are thousands of customers worldwide running Baan modules for manufacturing, financial, project estimating and management and distribution. Over time, the load from millions of transactions added daily to the system weighs heavily on application servers impacting performance and report response rates. Further limitations on database table size make enterprise data management an important data management strategy for Baan customers.

Organizations can mitigate the impact of data growth by running batch reports during downtimes, creating additional partitions, purchasing faster hardware or utilizing purge routines within the application stack. But none of these techniques fully address the reality of application growth coupled with the need for long term data retention. To maintain performance of Baan Applications while ensuring compliance, organizations must:

  • Actively manage transactional data stores to optimize application performance.
  • Understand the impact of growing application databases on productivity and resource costs.
