Archive to Data Lakes
Your accountants and team will need access to your ERP data history, but ERP history is really complicated to move to a new ERP environment. This is mainly because of two things.
First, data is related (items, salespeople, customers, transactions). All the related data needs to be associated correctly.
And second, every transaction you move needs to be brought into your new accounting system unposted and then re-posted down to the cent. 20 years (-ish) of history requires a really expensive effort to map and move the data to your new ERP and just is not recommended.
The good news is that Popdock provides a better strategy to archive and provide data access to historical data. Popdock includes the tools to make a copy of specific data sets, attachments, and your entire database to store in either your Microsoft Azure Data Lake or your Amazon Web Services S3 cloud storage account. With the Popdock Data Upload Tool (link page), you have a configurable interface to select the data set you want to archive, optimize the performance, and organize your data for reporting.
This is a fast and affordable strategy to manage your historical data and allows you to retire expensive legacy servers and environments.
