Big Data is a trend that has engulfed today's IT industry and one that organizations are struggling to manage. According to IDC, the amount of information created, captured or replicated has exceeded available storage for the first time since 2007, and many organization's are spending far more time looking for information than actually using it. The size of the digital universe this year will be tenfold what it was just five years earlier. Therefore, organizations must find smarter data management approaches that enable them to effectively corral and optimize their data.
Business classification and information governance processes can help guide and tame Big Data, preventing it from costing more than necessary, yet ensuring it is at hand when and where it's needed, while freeing IT staff to drive more strategic technology initiatives. Enterprises willing to create automated processes to identify and value business data can take control of information governance before the big-data onslaught swamps them. As a result, they can meet key corporate objectives, such as lowering costs, lowering risk and making better business decisions.
Attend this webinar for insights on:
- The practical benefits of information governance
- Developing a business classification initiative
- Big Data analytics tools
- Managing the Big Data lifecycle
