80% of the data that organizations store is unstructured—meaning it’s not stored in a structured repository (i.e. database). Unstructured data consists of word processing documents, spreadsheets, presentations, audio, video, and other files that are typically stored on file servers, NAS devices, intranets (e.g. SharePoint), and in email. Subsequently, these platforms have become the primary repositories for critical information like business plans, financial information, projects, blueprints, and human resources data.
This whitepaper explores some of the challenges IT faces when migrating and archiving data, provides a migration planning guide with these challenges in mind, and introduces a new approach to solving them using metadata and automation.
