Princeton Softech has been focusing on what it calls "active archiving" through its Active Archive Solutions, which provides the ability to not only archive raw database data but also include the data schema to maintain its integrity. It allows, for instance, a bank to archive older ATM transactions and maintain a records relationships to a specific customer, said Lisa Cash, CEO of the Princeton, N.J., company. Next up, the company is pushing that active archiving capability to specific applications. Princeton Softech first made its foray into that effort in May with the introduction of its Archive Servers for Clarify Edition for users of the popular help desk application. In the third quarter of this year, the vendor plans to launch Archive for Servers PeopleSoft Edition for users of PeopleSofts latest ERP suite, Cash said. Archive for Server Oracle Financials Edition is scheduled to follow by the end of this year or early in 2003.
The application-specific archiving software has built-in support for specific applications data models and pre-set business rules and archiving criteria to help ease setup for customers and provide more functionality, Cash said.
