Every business leader has digital transformation for their enterprise in their mind! EverySingleOne. And one thing this global pandemic has taught us is that the speed at which enterprises transform their business can be accelerated mighty fast. Being forced to change the way businesses work has catapulted many organizations into embracing the digital world at an unexpected speed. And what better way to carry out digital transformation in cloud systems, like Salesforce, than putting proper focus on the business data.

The importance of data as an enterprise asset in the Salesforce-using company is well understood by now. This data empowers marketers to make better decisions & take smarter risks while helping the sales team to better understand the customers’ problems & close better deals. But sometimes even the best intentions lead to wrong solutions because interpreting data isn’t always easy. Here, creating a data-first strategy for the enterprise will be beneficial for them.

A data-first strategy helps organizations prioritize business innovation & build risk models around multiple sources of digital intelligence. Not only does this data-first strategy help in mining vast troves of data to obtain actionable intelligence, but it also helps in attaining deeper customer insights and improving business processes. But it’s not easy creating such a kind of strategy & this is where our application, DataArchiva comes in handy.

Let’s Talk DataArchiva

Rapidly growing & steadily creating a niche for itself among the Salesforce users is our enterprise-grade data archiving solution, DataArchiva. This one-of-its-kind data archiving solution can be the key to creating a data-first strategy for your enterprise. Using this application, users can leverage different external cloud (AWS, Azure, Heroku, GCP) & on-premise platforms to conveniently archive their legacy data from Salesforce into their preferred external database (Postgres, MySQL, Oracle, MSSQL, Redshift).

What more do you get in return? This will probably be the first question popping into your head right now. Putting it precisely, DataArchiva is not just another data archiving solution for the Salesforce platform. Instead, its expansive capabilities prove to be detrimental in keeping up with the trends of digital transformation. Now before you begin wondering what those capabilities are, let’s discuss them & explain how they can be leveraged to create an advanced data-first strategy.

Keeping Data Accessible 

Aren’t you thinking about how will you view, access, or edit your data in case it is archived into external systems?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Usually, this is the first question that comes to mind when we talk about archiving the data from Salesforce into external databases since data is at the core of the data-first strategy. But with DataArchiva, worrying about data accessibility will become a thing of the past very soon. The application, though archives the data externally, maintains 100% data accessibility & enables users to view, access, edit, download, share, & even delete any archived data record; that too from within the Salesforce UI itself.

It’s All in the Processing

How important do you think the data processing speed is when talking about implementing a data-first approach?

We believe that deriving valuable insight from the business data is an extremely crucial element of any data-first business strategy. And this cannot be achieved unless the data records from Salesforce are processed quickly. With DataArchiva, users can actually enjoy lightning-fast data processing speeds as the solution has the capability to process & migrate more than 1 million records in just 100 minutes. What’s best is you don’t need to sit & monitor the entire archiving process as the app allows you to schedule the archiving job in advance, after which it can continue running in the background.

Elevating User Experience

Have your users been complaining about poor work experience in the system? What do you think are its long-term repercussions?

No business can adopt a data-first strategy unless its employees are free to work without interruptions. Frequently needing to locate specific records in heaps of archived data or querying for data or just having to perform operations manually hampers the performance of the users, affecting the company in the long run. DataArchiva helps in providing Salesforce users an experience as seamless as possible. Allowing them to perform ‘global search’ on the archived data as well, the app can help them find records faster. Also, since the data accessibility, data integrity, & complex object relationships are left untouched, the user experience is further enhanced.

Achieve Much More with Advanced Reporting

Wouldn’t it be good if you could generate advanced, insightful reports from your business data to actually see the growth & progress firsthand? 

But, we understand that it’s difficult to generate reports when the data is actually scattered across different systems. This is why DataArchiva can help you get rid of this woe as it allows you to bring together data from multiple sources & then feed it to the BI tool (Tableau, Power BI, etc) you’re using to generate proper reports. Aided by these customized reports, you can witness your progress & create elaborate plans to adopt the data-first strategy in your enterprise.

Optimized ROI on Your Mind

Won’t it be good if you could invest less capital but get more return on investment from it? Isn’t that the dream?

We realize that the sole purpose of adopting a data-first approach is to keep up with the digital transformation trends while maintaining a proper business ROI. Enabling users to instantly boost their ROI by more than 10 times, DataArchiva actually takes away this load from the enterprise’s back. This is because the actual data storage costs in Salesforce are reduced by 85%-90% by simply archiving the data. By improving the overall CRM performance & helping companies meet their compliance demands, the application further boosts the ROI leaving them free to carry out digital transformation.
