I was first introduced to information lifecycle management about 15 years ago when I was a sales rep for an SAP consulting company. Because SAP generates huge volumes of data that eventually clogs up the system, we helped companies archive the old data into offline document management systems for easy location and retrieval if/when needed. As I learned more about document management systems, I expanded my focus from selling just archiving solutions to selling complete content management solutions that would control the lifecycle of corporate documents –from creation, through revisions, approvals, archiving and eventual destruction.
Document management solutions were meant to simplify this process – and they do – but, they have never been able to capture all the unstructured data being shared both around the office and between organizations. As the cloud and mobile work world explodes, ensuring that all corporate records are input into the content repository becomes a greater challenge. Good information governance requires that all corporate records are properly managed, especially those that reside outside the content management solution (if only temporarily). Given that, another solution is needed.
TITUS Classification Suite provides many of the tools necessary to properly govern information wherever it resides. We have developed a new solution brief that provides an overview of how TITUS plays a central role in information lifecycle management.
The key information governance capabilities found within TITUS solutions will:
- Identify data across on premise and Cloud repositories
- Add classification metadata that can enhance other data governance solutions
- Move or protect an organization’s most sensitive data
- Present reports about where your sensitive records are and how they are being used
- Enhance retention management
