Tuesday, October 19, 2010Defining Unified Information Governance
Stop the presses. Today, we launched the Simpana 9 Unified Information Governance solution framework. Many might think, "what is the big deal with this?"
This is a significant milestone for CommVault as it's our first solution to be offered separately from our data management offering that is designed to focus on Information Governance. It is an integrated, bottom up approach to information management that includes key capabilities that organizations need in order to manage risk, improve efficiency and ultimately improve the value of their information.
Simpana 9 Information Governance starts with unified data acquisition. Simple copy and move functions enable the collection of information for further management. This approach leverages all the good data capture capabilities of Simpana software including archive, backup, replication, snapshots and workstation backup. These functions target a range of source data, including email systems, file systems, applications and also ingest data through a dedicated interface. From this, all data is deduplicated at the source to avoid unnecessary processing and storage across the enterprise.
As illustrated above, the framework provides five key solution areas – from retention lifecycle management (RTM) for the granular and tiered retention of records irrespective of media and location, to enterprise search with intelligent mining, and customizable workflow for eDiscovery and Compliance with unique embedded capabilities including single-click legal hold. Solutions are also provided for identifying and managing private or sensitive data, and, of course, for records management.
Simpana 9 simply excels as a long term records retention repository with capabilities that virtualize records, as well enabling their placement to specific applications and cloud providers. In addition its intelligent search improves your business access to information, allowing you to make informed decisions more quickly. Finally, multi-role workflows help reduce the overall risk of managing legal and regulatory processes.
Simpana 9 is packed full of enhancements that benefit Information Governance:
Put simply, Simpana 9 defines unified information governance by delivering key benefits to help organizations keep records to comply with regulations and improve decision making through real time intelligent access to records. If you're an in house lawyer, then consider that Simpana 9 can help cut your eDiscovery costs in half, reduce risk and allow you to spend less time sifting through and reviewing evidence.
