Data Carve-Out
& Archiving

Carve-Outs Complex Challenges & Careful Planning


A carve-out, whether with SAP, Oracle, Navision, or another system, typically involves complex challenges related to data archiving. These require careful planning and expertise, as well as a deep understanding of the database structures of the respective systems.  
Deep Understanding of Database Structures: “Key to Successful carve-outs.” It is necessary to understand and apply the connections between individual tables and the filtering, sometimes down to the level of individual records, to ensure that a carve-out is truly successful. AvenDATA has built up this understanding over the past 20 years.
Furthermore, in hardly any other area can we save more costs due to our fast and targeted approach.

Successful Carve-Outs
Across Hundreds of
Systems & Versions

Benefit from our in-depth understanding of the architecture and functionality of various systems and versions for a professional and seamless carve-out process. Our expertise spans across hundreds of successfully executed carve-outs across different system versions.

System Analysis
For Carve-Outs

Our application retirement process begins with a thorough analysis of your system tailored specifically for carve-outs. This analysis is crucial for estimating the timeline and costs for archiving your legacy system within the carve-out context. 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 specific to the carve-out, such as system access, database type and size, required reports and more.

Project Archiving
For Carve-Outs

After completing the system analysis for carve-outs, you decide to kick off the project with us. A kick-off meeting marks the start of the project, tailored specifically for the carve-out process, where your team meets our experienced project manager. We take on the archiving tasks of your system within the carve-out scope, relieving your resources. The project includes various milestones such as system access, data export, data transfer and documentation of all carve-out-specific processes.
The project duration typically ranges from 3 to 6 months, depending on the complexity of your system within the carve-out context. Throughout the carve-out process, our teams and project managers support you.  
At the end of the carve-out project, we conduct a testing and acceptance phase to ensure that all data has been successfully transferred within the carve-out framework. We guide this phase to require minimal resources and ensure that all requirements within the carve-out context are met before completing the project.

Archiving Result
For Carve-Outs

As a result of migrating to a proprietary software solution, all essential tables and documents within the carve-out context are migrated there, ready for future inquiries. Additionally, we recreate all essential reports to ensure that crucial information remains available even after decommissioning the original system within the carve-out framework.  
Once the ViewBox has been implemented, the carve-out is usually complete and the data can still be searched even though access to the original system no longer exists.
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.

World of ViewBox

As a cutting-edge reading and research system, AvenDATA’s ViewBox software enables you to swiftly and efficiently search, analyze, and authorize data. ViewBox also offers a highly automated feature for data deletion after a defined period.
