Overview: Organizations retain information for two reasons: because they want to, or because they have to (due to regulatory requirements, legal discovery, etc.). These issues are exacerbated by data retention, and, as a result, it is hard to find a business that doesn’t have a reason to save information. The process of retaining information is commonly referred to as “archiving."
This paper addresses how IBM’s Smart Archive strategy, bolstered by a series of hardware, software, and services offerings, is designed to help customers transition from short-term archiving decisions and their associated risks to a longer-term, simpler approach to information retention.
