THE PUSH TO DIGITIZE
As businesses push to digitize their processes data becomes their most valuable strategic asset.
DRIVERS OF VALUE
Your digital information that is trapped in legacy applications and the static data and content siloed in production applications needs to be accessible to drive true value for today’s business.
Holding onto legacy applications is risky and costly. Application decommissioning maintains compliance while managing data and content on a single accessible platform – increasing the intrinsic value of your data.
Migrating the tremendous amounts of inactive yet valuable data from siloed production applications to InfoArchive reduces storage and maintenance costs and exposes strategic data to the organization more readily.
Mobile, social, analytic and cloud applications meet the demands of our digital workforce. By ingesting and then exposing historic data InfoArchive can feed the information needs of these new applications.

RE-ENVISION YOUR DATA
Extracting as much potential business value from data and content is only possible by unleashing information from legacy and siloed applications – transforming it to feed new applications.
The need to access data puts tremendous pressure on IT departments, and anytime via any device creates even more complexity.
Many companies maintain static data in production applications with outdated user interfaces. By placing the static data in InfoArchive you can optimize your current production environment by removing static data providing the desired mobile access, through InfoArchive’s APIs and Web Interface.
Big data is all about analytics and making them meaningful. Access to valuable data-sets provides the needed business insight. Business insight goes beyond analysing sensors on a production line and drawing data from financial, R&D, and proprietary systems. But exposing this to big data without compliance is not an option. InfoArchive combined with Isilon not only provides the compliance you need but also renders the information HDFS ready. In essence by archiving data of all types creates a compliant source for Big Data.
More and more applications are moving to the cloud but how can these hosted applications access the historic and compliant data? Also, what about your on premise or those redundant applications? With InfoArchive you don’t need to maintain two applications to meet retention and compliance needs. InfoArchive maintains all your compliance policies while at the same time providing access to your new cloud applications. This allows you to decommission the old applications, preserve compliance, and enable a transformative technology.
BRING IT ALL TOGETHER
Ultimately, the goal of any organization should be to leverage all their information – data and content – to provide value back to the business. For the typical enterprise the deployment of InfoArchive has the ability to quickly free up substantial budget and infrastructure resources. The resulting payout presents a disruptive opportunity for any organization looking to focus on leveraging data to create value, rather than simply sustaining it.
