DART allows you to periodically extract and retain data from active R/3 applications, as well as from data that has been archived previously with the R/3 Archive Development Kit (ADK). DART extracts the data into sequential files and provides tools for viewing the retained data in various ways. The KGS ContentServer4Storage archives all your DART files on your preferred secure storage platform.
The Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) software by SAP can help streamline your IT infrastructure by decommissioning legacy systems and automating data retention according to rules defined minimizing risk with control over the data. The KGS ContentServer4Storage is certified for the BC-ILM 3.0 interface and therefor supports archiving data form the SAP Information Lifecycle tool.
