A study by the Compliance Governance and Oversight Council found and estimated 70 percent of information is often needlessly retained. If IT managers have one near-universal complaint, it’s this: Data overload is growing daily, and the IT budgets that help manage it are stretched to their limits. The need to archive and dispose of information is on the rise, driven by rising data volume, regulatory compliance, and complexity
Organizations require governance strategies and tactics that will help them curb rising IT infrastructure costs, archive only the information with the greatest value and improve information economics.
Value Based Archiving provides a high level of control over the archiving environment. Organizations are able to implement policies that identify what gets archived based on the content of the information and determine the retention and governance rules associated with the content.
