  • Press the Start Button on Information Governance: From 'Big Size' to 'Right Size'
    Source: IBM Corporation
    Webcast: How do ants eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Identifying, analyzing, and then acting on unstructured data in preparation for a data clean-up project, merger/acquisition, eDiscovery request, records classification, internal investigation, cloud migration, or even a data analytics project can seem overwhelming...just like an ant trying to eat an elephant...until we understand where to start.

    Join IBM for a webinar on October 8, 2014 featuring Cheryl McKinnon, Forrester principal analyst, as we discuss how to turn your unmanaged, unstructured data into relevant data, helping you jump start your information governance initiatives.

    As many of you know, the primary source of enterprise data growth, unstructured data, comes from disparate data sources, is spread across departments and locations, and is governed by ever changing compliance mandates and regulations. The nature of unstructured data makes finding that information governance "start button" a real challenge. Practitioners across legal, records, compliance, and IT struggle to answer these basic questions:
    - Do you know how much data you have?
    - Do you know where it's located and how much is classified?
    - Do you know who owns it?
    - Do you know how old it is?
    - Do you know how much is relevant to your business or just taking up space?
    - Do you know if it contains personally-identifiable information (PII) or other highly confidential information?

    Like an ant eating an elephant, it's all about perspective. Join us for a discussion on how to transform your "elephant size" unstructured data into "right size" relevant data and jump start your critical data-driven initiatives.

  • Full Speed Ahead for International Speedway Corp
    Source: CDW
    Case Study: International Speedway Corp.'s IT department is not resting on its laurels after upgrading the ISC enterprise infrastructure. In addition to rolling out wireless test pilots over the next several months, the IT staff plans to continue to virtualize as many of its remaining servers as possible. The company has already migrated its email, Microsoft SQL Server databases, financial applications, customer relationship management software and an inventory control application for its marketing partnerships to virtual machines. In all, that covers about 75 percent of its server environment. Now, the IT team plans to move its remaining Tier 1 applications -- including its ticketing system -- to a virtualized environment, says Jerry Ballenger, ISC's senior director of technology engineering and services. In the next year, the IT staff also plans to improve business continuity by turning its backup data center from a cold site to a hot site. The company uses a NetApp FAS2240 storage unit to back up file servers from each of its 13 facilities. "If users lose something and can't find a file, we want to empower them to restore it themselves," Ballenger says.
