Every day organisations are creating more and more information. This includes everything from documents, records, reports and files, to phone recordings, emails, videos and photos.
Not all the data an organisation holds is required, and by storing this information, the company is exposed to multiple risks, paying excessive storage costs, and experiencing an impact on business productivity.
It’s estimated that up to 70% of an organisation’s unstructured data is ROT (information which is redundant, obsolete and/or trivial). And it’s this non business-critical content which is the problem.

Due to the increasing amount of content generated during day-to-day business activities, disk space is at a premium.
Over-consumption is impacting performance, from users storing data inappropriately, data becoming irreversibly lost due to backups not completing, and employees accessing old and inaccurate information.
Temporary measures to reduce data volumes will only increase the risk that current data is deleted, without any recovery options.
As a result, urgent purchases of expensive disks are often seen as the solution. This only increases storage costs, without solving the data problem.
Within just 24 hours of deployment of AI.DATALIFT, disk space can be saved immediately by removing low-value content.
Cleansing data to quickly remove ROT ensures that the information is accurate, up-to-date and useable. Confidence in the usefulness of this data will improve, resulting in increased business productivity.
Users will now be able to store key content centrally, data can be restored efficiently, and potential viruses or malware can be detected more effectively.
Storage costs will also be reduced, as up to 70% of information will be remediated. Data cleansing also negates the need for additional expensive storage facilities.
