Companies need capabilities for identifying data assets and relationships, assessing data growth and implementing tiered storage strategies-capabilities that information governance can provide. It is important to classify enterprise data, understand data relationships and define service levels. Database archiving has proven effective in managing continued application data growth especially when it is combined with data discovery.
Different types of data have different data retention requirements. In establishing information governance and database archiving policies, take a holistic approach by understanding where the data exists, classifying the data, and archiving the data. IBM InfoSphere Optimô Archive solution can help enterprises manage and support data retention policies by archiving historical data and storing that data in its original business context, all while controlling growing data volumes and improving application performance. This approach helps support long-term data retention by archiving data in a way that allows it to be accessed independently of the original application.
