Macro 4 talks Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) at SAP User Group Conference

Macro 4: Stand 30, SAP UK & Ireland User Conference.

Crawley, UK, November 17, 2010 – At this year’s SAP UK & Ireland User Group Conference, Macro 4 will be promoting its information management solutions for SAP® and announcing the initial results of its UK survey "A Macro 4 Study: Attitudes to ILM from users of SAP solutions".

Macro 4, a software and services company and SAP partner, provides certified solutions that support SAP archiving, Output Management and SAP Netweaver Information Lifecycle Management as Lynda Kershaw, Marketing Manager at Macro 4, explains:

"Our software and consultancy for data archiving helps customers manage the size of their SAP databases to optimize system performance, streamline backups and reduce storage costs. With document archiving customers can rationalize document-intensive processes such as accounts payable by putting paper documents online and integrating them with business workflow. We can also help organizations decommission legacy applications or meet stringent regulations for retention and destruction of archived information, using SAP Netweaver Information Lifecycle Management.

And our Output Management software and services help businesses ensure the reliable delivery of important document output throughout the enterprise, via print and electronic channels. This is all about safeguarding processes that depend on the timely arrival of documents - such as dispatch and invoicing."

Macro 4’s key news announcement at the show will be the results of a survey of SAP user organisations (conducted by Macro 4) which focuses on the increasing regulatory and legal pressures that are driving ILM adoption. The research is based on the views of 177 UK organisations.
