For SAP customers, there is no way around the new S/4 Hana software. The development of and support for the previous system is likely to be stopped in 2025. So, the question arises: What should I do with my old SAP systems which are no longer used productively? As a rule, the data from the systems must still be kept for years. Besides, they must fulfill different requirements, as for example for the access of the financial authorities, customs check or income tax checks. There are also requirements typical for different branches, such as tracing of charges, informing suppliers, etc. These requirements are generally worldwide and are not limited to one country. All of these are challenges with which companies are confronted during the changeover to SAP Hana.

From May 25th, 2018 the data protection act (GDPR) of the European Union (EU) is also valid in Germany. The essential innovations include the 'right to be forgotten' which implies the deletion claims of affected persons directly at the storing place. With the ViewBox such data can be made unrecognizable in the sense of EU-GDPR. Companies will additionally get an expanded accounting duty for the handling of data. And in case of risk-afflicted data processing a "data protection-subsequent evaluation" must be carried out according to certain criteria. With the ViewBox by AvenDATA – unlike with other systems – you are prepared for these new legal basic requirements very well.
