Data Retention Tool (DART)
Status in Our Archiving

The SAP Data Retention Tool (DART) is a software solution developed by SAP specifically for archiving and retaining data within SAP systems. DART enables companies to store, manage and retain data according to legal requirements or internal policies.
Our ViewBox solution also supports the SAP Data Retention Tool (DART) status and allows you to provide the appropriate format for tax authorities and regulatory bodies through export. This is particularly important as many tax authorities in various countries prefer this format for reporting purposes.

Hundreds of Systems
Across Various Types

With our profound understanding of the architecture and functionality of these versions, we can provide you with a professional and seamless decommissioning process. Our experience extends across hundreds of successfully decommissioned systems in different versions.

System Analysis

Our Application Retirement process begins with a thorough analysis of your SAP system. This analysis is crucial to estimate the timeframe and costs for archiving your legacy SAP system. The results of the system analysis will be presented to you as a fixed price offer, which you can accept or decline. The system analysis covers technical and business aspects, such as access to the SAP system, the nature and size of the SAP database, required SAP reports, and much more.

Project Archiving

Upon completion of the SAP system analysis, you decide to initiate the project with us. A kick-off meeting marks the beginning of the SAP project, where your team will meet our experienced SAP project manager. We take over the archiving tasks of your SAP system while relieving your resources. The SAP project includes various milestones such as access to the SAP system, data export, SAP data transfer, and documentation of all processes.
The project duration typically ranges from 3 to 6 months, depending on the complexity of your SAP system. Throughout the SAP process, our teams and project managers provide support.
At the end of the SAP project, we conduct a SAP testing and acceptance phase to ensure that all SAP data has been successfully transferred. We accompany this phase to require minimal resources and ensure that all SAP requirements are met before the SAP project is completed.

Archiving Result

As a result of migrating to a proprietary software solution called ViewBox, all essential tables and documents are migrated there to be ready for future inquiries. Additionally, we rebuild all essential SAP reports to ensure that crucial information remains available even after the original SAP system has been decommissioned.
After the implementation of ViewBox, the original SAP system can be shut down.
At the end of each project, you will receive comprehensive documentation so that even years later an expert third party can see how the archiving was carried out and, above all, how it was tested. In addition, we store all individual tests and individual archiving steps in a Jira ticket system until the archiving system is deleted.
