Crawley, UK, August 06, 2010 – Macro 4, the global IT company which provides a range of data and document management solutions that support SAP® applications, has announced its participation in the SAP® EcoHub solution marketplace. This community-powered online marketplace makes it easier for customers to discover, evaluate and purchase solutions from SAP and its partners. Macro 4’s solutions for Data and Document Archiving, Output Management and Application Decommissioning in support of SAP solutions are listed on the company’s “store front” on the SAP EcoHub site, together with case studies and customer testimonials. The SAP EcoHub gives customers access to complementary solutions and offerings that support their installation of SAP applications. It leverages SAP’s comprehensive ecosystem, where customers and partners can connect. The SAP EcoHub integrates community input, user feedback, ratings and partner demos, enabling a more educated and intelligent selection of solutions. Macro 4’s Data and Document Archiving solution is designed to optimise the performance of customers’ SAP solutions by removing excess data from the live SAP database and storing it on a low-cost, easily maintained content server. The data can be accessed instantly from the standard SAP user interface, together with scanned, in-bound documents. Archiving also helps cut storage costs and simplifies the upgrade process. The Output Management offering safeguards customers’ business processes by assuring delivery of documents from SAP applications with rapid detection, diagnosis and resolution of any print-related problems throughout the enterprise. And the Application Decommissioning solution enables resources to be diverted away from supporting legacy applications (including legacy SAP applications) by transferring important legacy data to a secure, online archive that can be accessed from the SAP user interface. “The SAP EcoHub gives us a ready-made online marketplace to get our products in front of SAP customers – so we’re keen to make as much use of it as we can to get the word out about how we can help users get the most from their SAP applications,” said Lynda Kershaw, marketing manager for Macro 4. The SAP EcoHub can be found at the following link: http://ecohub.sap.com. Visitors can search for solutions in many ways, including industry or solution, key words, relevance or partner. Solutions can be evaluated online based on feedback from other users, partners and business experts.
