Government agencies accumulate data every day. What you don’t have time to do every day is organize that data. Information is your agency’s most important asset, but too many agencies are buried in data – uncertain about where it’s stored, what’s current, and what’s important. Redundancy represents a growing problem, and 40 percent of Federal data assets exist four or more times1. Agencies will spend as much as $16.5 billion storing redundant copies of non-production data by 20242.
Information management helps you get your data under control.
Data doesn't just grow quickly, it also grows old quickly. Keeping everything is an idea that's grown as stale as the information itself. Despite that, data proliferation continues unabated. Agencies must figure out how to manage data so your most important assets don't become your biggest, costliest burden.
Storing massive amounts of data places organizations at significant risk. Storage costs become excessive, the ability to meet compliance deadlines compromised and a lack of oversight can expose agencies to malicious activity. Whether financial, legal, security, productivity, or reputational risk, there is a high likelihood that your organization is currently trending toward an information ecosystem that is not sustainable. The time to clean house is now – employing a strategic information governance strategy is how.
Agencies need constant access to data and applications – otherwise that information loses its value, while services and mission are placed at risk. Your backup and recovery infrastructure should be fast to deploy, flexible, and purpose-built to protect against unwanted downtime through resilient high availability and reliable recovery for critical business services.
Information availability is about access to the data you need, when you need, no matter where it resides. How does your environment stack up?
Agencies have put off organizing valuable data long enough. Let Veritas enable you to harness the power of your information.
