“The Growing Importance of Archiving Electronic Content for eDiscovery and Other Benefits”
The goal of this white paper is to demonstrate the critical importance of electronic archiving as a best practice for any organization to follow. Specifically:
- Archiving can be used as a primarily “defensive” capability to protect an organization from the variety of legal, regulatory and other external requirements that it will inevitably be called upon to satisfy.
- Archiving can also be used proactively to make employees more productive, enable a better understanding of how a business operates, and manage risk effectively.
- Archiving can provide hard cost savings that can be easily quantified, resulting in the ability to demonstrate a significant return-on-investment and a relatively short payback period.
- While email is the most common source of archived content, a number of other content types are becoming important to archive.
