PBS Software Positioned the Furthest in the Niche Players Quadrant in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement

(PresseBox) (Bensheim, ) PBS Software GmbH announced that for the first time they have been positioned the furthest for completeness of vision and ability to execute in the Niche Players Quadrant in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement". The Magic Quadrant is Gartner's central report for assessing manufacturers. It is compiled independently by Gartner based on a comprehensive catalog of criteria, is held in high esteem, and is therefore often used as a selection criterion in sales situations.

According to Gartner "By 2017, structured data archiving will represent one-fifth of the information governance efforts in enterprises" Increasingly, IT leaders are retiring applications as they respond to demands to move to the cloud, consolidate data centers and improve agility. Structured data archiving, from vendors such as PBS, address the management of aging data, application consolidation and retirement.

"We are happy and proud about our positioning in the Gartner quadrant", said founder and managing director Günther Reichling. His company focuses primarily on software development, whereas PBS partners provide consulting and sales support worldwide. The partner Dolphin Enterprise Solutions Corporation that is responsible amongst others for the North American market was "honored to be mentioned as a VAR in the Gartner Magic Quadrant report on structured archiving," said Dr. Werner Hopf, CEO Dolphin.

Since the development of PBS archive add-on concept more than 20 years ago, PBS Software has been considered a proven expert for seamless, transparent, and meanwhile - thanks to column-oriented database technology - almost real-time speed access to archived (and also non-archived) data in SAP systems. In contrast to most of the other niche providers listed, PBS Software addresses exclusively SAP user companies as their target group. PBS provides the server/client-based solution Enterprise Content Store for the retirement of SAP applications. This can be used to evaluate and manage DART files, PBS data extracts, print lists, and original documents from complex SAP applications. Depending on requirements it is used as a central data management tool for external data access, for the efficient retirement of SAP systems, or for transferring company data.
