Infor LN & Baan Tip: How to deal with data growth of your ERP system…
Spending time on managing ERP data can deliver huge benefits, not just in reducing storage costs, but also in improving the experience of business users. Proactively managing application data also helps accelerate key business processes which has a positive impact on customers, suppliers, and partners. Use these solutions to reduce the data growth and disk storage used on your system:
• Use database compression. See Infor LN Data compression (B0050 US) for more information.
• Using the varchar data type for string fields reduces the size of the database. Tables must be recreated for the varchar conversion. See solution 22923520 for the latest porting set.
• Regular archiving history data will have a very positive effect on performance. The database growth will be limited and inserts in large tables will be faster. See the Infor LN User Guide for Archiving (U9352 US) for more information.
