DataArchiva: The Journey to a Salesforce Partner Innovation Award Winner

DataArchiva, which was launched in 2018 in the AppExchange, started its transformational journey as the only 100% native data archiving application for Salesforce. DataArchiva used Big Objects to archive data from Salesforce while keeping it 100% accessible & highly secure. The product extended its Salesforce data archiving capabilities to external platforms as it added AWS, Azure, Heroku, GCP, and On-prem for the Salesforce data archive. Considering the evolving role of data in business & predicting the future needs of customers, we also introduced backup & recovery services for Salesforce data, metadata, and files within the external platforms. Recently DataArchiva added Org to Org seeding for Salesforce in its backup solution & made the platform one of the most advanced, versatile, and comprehensive data management platforms for Salesforce.

In its last 5 years journey, DataArchiva has made a highly diverse and prestigious customer base spanning across multiple industries & regions. Today DataArchiva seamlessly enables enterprises to transform their data management needs on the world’s #1 CRM platform.

The Story Behind the PIA Recognition

In the last one year, DataArchiva has developed its footprint in new territories as well as industries. Among those industries, Communications is one of the most noteworthy sectors where multiple enterprises have implemented our data management platform to meet their complex data management goals in Salesforce. 

Now talking about this year’s PIA award-winning story, we would like to thank our esteemed customer Awards Network from the US who trusted our application & implemented it for Salesforce native data archiving

Awards Network has been using Salesforce sales and service cloud applications for workflow automation. With a rapidly growing business, they were generating a large volume of data from multiple sources. This unmanaged data growth has become one of the biggest obstacles for them in terms of maximizing their Salesforce ROI & using the apps to their full potential. Some of the key challenges they faced were; data storage limitations, degrading application performance, and losing efficiency.

They considered multiple archiving applications & found DataArchiva as the perfect fit. The archiving job was set on a monthly basis & a specific volume of historical data was queued to get automatically archived. DataArchiva also met Award Network’s criteria-based archiving needs & automated archiving of a specific set of objects once they get 3 years old.

Some of the amazing benefits Awards Network got were: 

  • Complete archiving automation based on object status set by them
  • 100% automation with scheduler
  • Maintained object relationships (hierarchies as well)
  • Encryption of sensitive archived data
  • Access control for enhanced security
  • View of the archived data within the Salesforce app
  • Undo archiving (Restore)
The Value Addition of DataArchiva to the Customer’s Business
  • As the customer leveraged their Big Objects storage to archive data, it didn’t cost them any additional cost towards storage.
  • They were able to save high data storage costs (80% cost savings), which they would have paid towards purchasing additional storage space.
  • As the unwanted data were archived, it helped the customer clean up the storage space in order to enhance overall application performance by 2X.

“Excellent Product, Excellent Service. This app has been the perfect way to effectively archive records to save on storage space, but still have easy access to them if they are needed again. The DataArchiva team was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout the setup.”

Andriana Baruffi, Vice President of Operations, Awards Network
