New White Paper Explores a Second Generation of Information Lifecycle Management
Austin, TX, February 21, 2006 - RenewDataź, a leader in Information GovernanceTM solutions providing compliance, preservation archiving and electronic discovery solutions for corporations and law firms, announced today a new white paper authored by well-known technology expert and information technology lawyer Dennis Kennedy.
"Making the 'Right' Decision at the Information Lifecycle Management Crossroads - Moving to a Needs-Based Approach" provides insight and education on the constantly evolving world of information lifecycle management (ILM) and the challenges decision-makers must make when faced with the decision of going down the same reactive path or rethinking their strategy and making an upfront investment that can provide long-term savings and benefits. This paper explores a second generation of ILM (ILM 2.0) which takes an integrated, needs-based approach and provides a long-term, forward-looking solution.
"Strong forces - corporate governance and compliance requirements, electronic discovery demands, policy and procedural mandates, storage costs and capacities, business intelligence and knowledge management wish lists - have come together to push ILM to the forefront in many organizations," states Kennedy. "These organizations have learned that trying to impose ILM on top of unorganized systems and procedures with minimalist or piecemeal approaches in a time of crisis or after problems have already occurred is costly and counter productive. It may also have dire consequences, as we read in the newspapers on a regular basis."
