Dataleaf® Archive

Archiving may be required for historical data which is rolled out, or data which is not migrated to a new system, or in cases when organizational change obscures historical information that is needed for legal, strategic, or regulatory reasons.

F-Archive™ vs. S-Archive™

Dataleaf supplies two kinds of data archiving systems. Each is appropriate under some circumstances.

The'F-Archive™' is a table-by-table image of all the legacy data in the legacy system. It is designed for infrequent use, and usually supplied on CD-ROM or data DVD. It is a direct representation of the original data, accessible through standard desktop tools.

Automatic, semantically-appropriate, linking for all table is a part of the archive, so that almost all reporting can be completed without IT assistance. Export to Excel, etc. is supported. Tables and columns are actually indexed by the values they contain, so obsolete data structures can be understood years from now using sample values.

The 'S-Archive™' is something different. It's an easy-to-use snapshot-based system with access to effective-dated components. It is suitable for the direct generation of reports and downloads. There is a standard user interface.
