  • Taking Control of Data Debris Benefits IT and Beyond
    Source: IBM Corporation
    Webcast: Corporations are drowning in data, which is putting a strain on IT budgets. The amount of data corporations create and store is constantly increasing, and simply buying more storage space or shifting the data off to the cloud is inefficient and expensive. In this webinar based on his article in ComputerWorld, CGOC faculty member David White describes how data retention is getting out of hand at many organizations. He further discusses how an information life-cycle governance program can deliver benefits across the enterprise by reducing stored data volumes, enabling effective records retention, reducing cost and risk associated with legal discovery, reducing data privacy and security risks, and improving access to the high-value information that decision-makers need. Information governance is more than just records management and deleting unnecessary data. It entails documenting the status quo with data maps and data flows as well as revising or creating policies and business practices that relate to the treatment of information throughout its lifecycle. The potential benefits of ILG for IT are enormous. Eliminating unneeded data debris, retiring legacy applications, and modernizing the records retention and legal hold programs can offset capital and operational expenses, reclaim storage space, decrease software license and maintenance fees, and reduce lost productivity.
