Gamma Enterprise Technologies' New ArchiveBridge

Gamma Enterprise Technologies announced its new ArchiveBridge software has been optimized to work with Symantec's VERITAS Enterprise Vault. Companies can now combine ArchiveBridge and Enterprise Vault to improve the performance of their SAP systems, enhance SAP user satisfaction, and reduce storage costs while keeping older, historical data readily accessible as needed for business and legal requirements.

ArchiveBridge is a cross-application software solution which enables SAP users to archive and retrieve both SAP data and associated business documents (scanned images, text, MS Word and .PDF files, etc.) utilizing external content repositories such as Enterprise Vault. It builds on the SAP's ArchiveLink specification to deliver enhanced, long-term archival and retrieval functionality for customers looking to the benefits of strategically managing their SAP data growth.

Enterprise Vault enables organizations to archive and manage email, instant messages, Microsoft SharePoint and file systems documents. Enterprise Vault provides a secure, tamper-proof central repository for these business records, helping companies comply with all electronic records retention regulations while driving down costs through improved user productivity and efficient use of storage hardware. The combination of ArchiveBridge and Enterprise Vault enables companies to utilize the same system for archiving SAP data as used for email, documents and other electronic content.

A recent Gamma survey of SAP customers showed rapid growth in the typical SAP production system, with over half the respondents reporting production systems larger than 500 GB. Much of that growth is due to "data bloat" - maintaining old, historical data in the production system no matter how rarely, if ever, it is actually accessed.

VERITAS Enterprise Vault combined with Gamma's ArchiveBridge provides an integrated approach to archiving. Positioned in the leader quadrant in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for E-Mail Active-Archiving Market, 2005(1), the Enterprise Vault archiving platform enables companies to utilize the same system for archiving SAP data as used for email, documents and other electronic content.
