The SAP Archiving and ILM Sessions at the 2013 ASUG/SAPPHIRENOW Annual Conference

If you are attending the conference in Orlando May 14th – 16th and are interested in SAP data archiving, image archiving and Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) topics (and let’s face it, who isn’t interested in these fascinating topics πŸ˜€ ), then the following sessions need to be added to your agenda.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions in the Open Forum, hear from ASUG members (SAP Customers and Partners) on how they implemented archiving projects, and hear the latest news from SAP on the SAP NetWeaver ILM Solution and their strategy for integrating with SAP HANA.

You can find these sessions in the agenda builder by searching on ASUG Annual Conference and limiting the Presentation Category to BITI: Archiving and Information Lifecycle Management:


The first session is the popular Archiving and ILM Open Forum where you can meet and network with others interested in archiving as well as ask questions you may have regarding archiving and ILM.

I hope these sessions are what conference attendees are looking for in regards to SAP Archiving and ILM topics.  As I am an ASUG Volunteer for the Archiving and ILM Special Interest Group and it is my role to select the abstracts for the Archiving Track.  If there are any topics you wish to hear more about in the future, please let me know.

      Everyone should be interested in these sessions as it should be an important part of any SAP system πŸ™‚

      Thank you for pulling these together.

      I forgot to add that a co-worker of mine attended many of the sessions in the Archiving track the other year and returned to the office very knowledgeable about the topic.   He cited the archiving open forum (do you have that this year) as being extremely helpful.

      Hi Tammy,

      Thanks for the feedback!  And, yes, there is an Archiving Open Forum again this year.  It is the first session listed :-).

      Best Regards,

      'Who isn't interested in Archiving' - anyone who doesn't care about their system performance?  It's a critical component of any healthy SAP system.  Thanks Karin - I am sure everyone attending the conference (SAP employees, partners, and customers) can learn a lot in these sessions.

      Thanks Sue!

      And, I can't imagine there are people out there who are not interested in archiving (hehehe).

      Best Regards,
