Doug

This depends on the type of data. If any data is considered private under German law then this is correct, the data cannot physicall reside outside of Germany.

However, if the data is not considered private under German law, then the data is free to be stored anywhere.

Know what is or is not private under german law is difficult and would require a german attorney to help you decide.

Private data can include clocking times for your employees, all employee and some vendor data if the vendor is a german company

Also you should be aware of the EU laws as well the are part of doing business in germany

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Location In Germany

We are running XA7.7 on an iSeries in the US. We have several locations
in the US, Canada, and UK all running remotely on our corporate iSeries
and using XA. We have a location in Germany that we have not brought
onto the corporate system yet, but are now ready to. However, the
management at the facility is telling us that they are not allowed to
run their business on a remote system outside of Germany.



I am finding this hard to believe but can't seem to change their
position. Is anyone else running a facility in Germany on a US based XA
system? Or have knowledge of this kind of limitation within Germany.



Thanks for your input.



Doug

subject: Re: [MAPICS-L] Dedicated Mapics Backup

That makes things MUCH simpler. If you can do a backup to disk, then a later
save of the backup to tape, you should (emphasis on "should") be able to get the
XA backup done over a lunch break. I've been able to.

BTW - if you want, I can provide a quick save of the backup to tape that can be
added to the post-backup process, or placed in the job scheduler (which is how I
usually did it). Very easy.

Well, it looks like we are going to go with the offline mode of the data
collection software so I will be able to have some time to get the
dedicated backup. Yay! We are a solution by Integrated Barcoding
Systems. Thanks,

Barb,

Just how "24/7" do you actually have to be? I ask this because I know of
many
3 shift organizations that are nominally 24/7, but actually do a backup
each
night during 3rd shift lunch break. For example, if you use COM_Net and
MDCC,
both applications stay up for the users, but the transactions simply don't
post
until after the XA backups are completed. Ditto with non-XA applications,
for
example two of my accounts have add-on, in-house written IM transactions
done
through green-screen data collection, but those transactions simply wait
until
the backups are done.

This sounds interesting. I may have to try it. We do have source code
for XA.
