SAP Information Lifecycle Management (SAP ILM) & General Data Protection Regulation* (GDPR) enhances SAP standard delivery with the ability to manage the lifecycle of live and archived data based on rules.
The main purpose is to enhance individuals’ control and rights over their personal data. National laws often have an influence on which data are considered as personal data. E.g. in Denmark religion is considered as personel data. In Germany it’s not!

With SAP ILM/GDPR we can do that and apply some ILM policies.

7 Key principles:

  • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency.
  • Purpose limitation.
  • Data minimisation.
  • Accuracy.
  • Storage limitation.
  • Integrity and confidentiality. (security)
  • Accountability.
We need to use ILM-specific data archiving functions. The Information Lifecycle Management force us to consider schedule archiving and destruction runs using archiving objects and data destruction objects according to your ILM policies:

  • Retention / Residence period
  • Period
  • Time reference for the data object
  • Time off
  • Authorization groups (SAP)

SAP has included their SAP Netweaver Runtime license with retention management functions from ILM, making ILM/GDPR function license-free.
