It’s true: Business information has a shelf life. Over time, information loses its business relevance and its value. But what do you do with all this outdated information?
When it comes to their information, many organizations have adopted a practice of keeping it all. But keeping it all is no longer a viable option, from either the cost or the risk standpoints. As the volume of information continues to grow, including more and more information that’s redundant, outdated, or even trivial (also known as ROT), businesses are starting to recognize that a significant portion of their information is past its useful life – and, even worse, that some of that aging information could actually put them at risk.
Information lifecycle governance (ILG) is the practice of applying systematic rules, practices, and processes to the control of an organization’s information, throughout the various stages that information undergoes – from creation, to active use, to archived storage, to eventual disposition.
