The creation and infinite retention of unstructured data within enterprises has reached a point where organisations no longer can ignore the associated risks.
On average 59% of all unstructured data in enterprise organisations is what is commonly referred to as “dark data”. This is data whose value has not yet be identified by the organisation – no one really knows who the owner is and whether it’s actually relevant to the business, yet it still resides in enterprise platforms. By being unidentified all data is effectively being treated as equal, regardless of its business criticality, age, type or ownership. Organisations need to be able to easily identify what is business critical versus what is redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT).
By providing reporting, analytics, and visualisation of this data, organisations can gain a clear understanding of what data exists, how it is being used, who owns it, and has access to it. This delivers wide-ranging benefits to the organisation, including:
- Automated governance through workflows and customisation
- Efficiencies and cost savings in your unstructured data environment
- Regulatory compliance for information access, use and retention
- Confidential information is protected from unauthorised use and exposure
