Do you know that having a dynamic data management strategy for the Salesforce system is the quickest way to rise above the competition in your industry? Yes, that’s true! An effective & future-ready Salesforce data management strategy can help you efficiently manage the data well within the primary Salesforce data storage. But this is no easy task as the primary data storage is not only limited but purchasing additional data storage space proves to be equally expensive.

So what’s the secret to a comprehensive Salesforce data management strategy, you ask. Well, it’s having an enterprise-grade data archiving strategy for the rarely-used, yet important Salesforce data in your Org. A modern data archiving strategy helps you optimize the storage & overcome other challenges related to hefty storage costs, performance, & long-term retention for regulatory compliance. At this juncture, a lot of enterprises turn towards the trusted AppExchange to choose from among the different third-party data archiving applications available there.

DataArchiva vs Other Data Archiving Solutions: What’s Best for Salesforce Data Archival 

Enterprises must be very careful while browsing through the data archiving solutions present on the AppExchange. This is primarily because each enterprise has a unique set of requirements from the data archiving platform, based on which the choice has to be made. For this reason, you can check out our enterprise-grade Salesforce data archiving solution, DataArchiva; whose unmatched capabilities guarantee to take your archiving experience in Salesforce to a whole new level.

So let’s quickly pitch DataArchiva against other similar AppExchange solutions, to see how they compare to each other.

Support for a Plethora of External Platforms & Databases  

As far as other data archiving applications are concerned, no other application supports this diverse range of external platforms & databases as DataArchiva does. When using DataArchiva, enterprises can leverage both external cloud (AWS, Azure, GCP, Heroku) & on-premise platforms to archive their legacy Salesforce data into their preferred external database such as Redshift, Postgres, MySQL, Oracle, MSSQL, etc.

Have an On-premise System in place, No Issue

It’s very common for Salesforce data archiving applications to use external cloud platforms to support the seamless archival of legacy data. Even our application leverages cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, Heroku & GCP to archive data into different databases. But what distinguishes DataArchiva from other archiving solutions is the fact that it’s the only archiving solution that also uses one’s on-premise platforms to archive Salesforce data. This comes in handy for enterprises who either already have an on-premise system in place or don’t want to move their data into external storage due to security reasons.

Process Legacy Data at the Speed of Light

When compared with other data archiving solutions, DataArchiva has the additional advantage of being the application with the ‘high-speed data processing capability’. Due to this unmatched ability, DataArchiva can easily process & migrate over 1 million records in just 100 minutes. And all this is accomplished without affecting the data integrity or impairing any of the complex object relationships. This is why enterprises that have millions of Salesforce records or even TBs of data, choose our application over others any day!

Do Away with the Need for Additional Connectors 

Most data archiving applications present on the AppExchange leverage some or the other external integration tool (usually Salesforce Connect) to archive Salesforce data into the preferred secondary storage. But not DataArchiva! The archiving solution facilitates the seamless integration between Salesforce & the external storage of your choice without using any additional connector or integration tool of any kind. This is one of the primary reasons behind the high-speed data processing speed the solution offers.

Finally, Make the Dream of Maximized ROI a Reality

One of the most unique capabilities of DataArchiva is its ability to instantly boost the business’s return on investment (ROI) by almost 10 times; something which you won’t find in any other archiving solution. This is because the application, upon implementation, instantaneously brings down the data storage costs by 85-90% as well as improves the CRM performance by 10 times. All these factors contribute towards boosting the ROI. And you can expect this enhanced ROI from day one itself since DataArchiva is super quick to set up & extremely easy to deploy.

Global Search Particular Salesforce Record

Usually, when a particular record has to be searched among millions of records, especially the archived ones, it is deemed as a tedious & time-consuming process. This might be the case if you use other archiving solutions. But if you use DataArchiva to take care of your data archiving job, then it’s not a big hassle. This is because the solution offers a better & faster global search option which makes finding any particular record within the archived records much easier & also gives you more control over your data.

Utilize Data to the Fullest through Advanced Reporting

What’s the use of having data in the system when you can’t run data analysis on it or prepare any analysis reports from it? Thus, another factor that makes DataArchiva rise above its counterparts is its ability to let users generate powerful & highly customized reports from their business data. To facilitate this, DataCArchiva lets them bring together both the live & archived data from various sources; including Salesforce live instance, archived location, & external third-party apps; & then leverage different BI tools like Tableau, Qlik Q, Power BI, etc to create analytical reports as per their requirements.

Easy Data Accessibility & Quick Data Restoration Capabilities

In comparison to its competitors, DataArchiva is a highly secure & GDPR-compliant Salesforce data archiving application that guarantees 100% data accessibility. Not only does it allow users to view & access the archived data right from the Salesforce UI (even when it resides in the external database), it also gives users 100% control over their data by letting them easily restore all archived records (or even a particular record) to the live instance using the on-demand restoration feature. It’s also worth mentioning that all these processes do not impact the user experience or the complex object relationships in any manner.

Adhering to Compliance Requirements Made Easier

Our next-gen archiving solution lets the enterprise users set their own data retention period in order to meet whatever regulatory compliance requirements their industry is governed by, be it CCPA, FDA, HIPAA, FedRAMP, or GDPR. DataArchiva further simplifies compliance processes by keeping the archived data 100% accessible & easily viewable, right from within the Salesforce UI. And since the app itself doesn’t hold any customer data, even the highly regulated industries can use it to optimize their data compliance processes by effortlessly meeting their external compliance & internal data retention policies.

Though with the introduction of data archiving strategies, optimizing the Salesforce data storage as well as Salesforce data management have become easier & cost-effective, it’s still important to choose the right kind of archiving strategy. Therefore we hope that the detailed comparison we provided, between DataArchiva & the other archiving solutions, helps you make a well-informed decision for your organization.
