I am pleased to feature ASUG TechEd speaker Sandy Speizer, who is presenting on NLS Data Archiving – Keeping SAP NetWeaver BW in Tip-Top Shape for SAP HANA.
Q: Please tell us about yourself
A: I’ve been working with SAP since 1996 when PSEG implemented core modules. I started out implementing the HR module and because HR touches everything, learned a lot about FI/CO and PM/PS. I was also involved in our IS/U (Industry Solution for Utilities) implementation, which went live in 2009 and was responsible for data conversion, infrastructure and security. I’ve been cleaning up our BW systems for the past 3 years and am now getting PSEG ready for HANA.
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time (yes, there is some), I love to spend time at the Jersey Shore in the summer, I’m totally a Jersey Girl. Nothing better than running on the boardwalk by the beach. I also love to read and am involved in a local book club. We do theme dinners to match the book. The last one I hosted was for the book Steve Jobs (Steve’s bio) and every dish had apples in it. We started out the night with appletini’s.
PSEG used near-line storage (NLS) data archiving to clean up its SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse (SAP NetWeaver BW) environment and dramatically reduce the size of their system. They moved more than 3TB of data to an SAP Sybase IQ system. Working with vendor partners, PSEG was able to archive older data by moving complete cubes and DSO’s. They also archived more current data and are currently archiving data more than one year old by keeping current year data in SAP NetWeaver BW cubes and older data in NLS. Learn how they determined scope, cleaned up the SAP NetWeaver BW system, and implemented best practices for future archiving efforts. Through the archiving effort, PSEG was able to streamline the SAP NetWeaver BW system of aged data and ready the system for a future SAP HANA implementation.
So add NLS Data Archiving – Keeping SAP NetWeaver BW in Tip-Top Shape for SAP HANA to your Las Vegas TechEd agenda today. I have seen her slides and this session is not to be missed.
