Why NextPage Makes Sense
In-place Information Governance makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons. Here are the key reasons why an increasing number of businesses choose NextPage.
Cost of Storage
When it comes to the cost of information management, many organizations are caught between two prevailing trends. Although the cost of storage per GB is going down, the ever-increasing volume of information continues to drive cost up. Information Governance that manages in-place allows you to substantially reduce the total volume of unstructured information being stored for lower storage costs—all without impeding your business.
Cost of e-Discovery
The operational costs associated with e-Discovery directly correlate with the volume of unstructured information. Even by conservative accounts, that can mean a cost burden that’s ten times the cost of information storage. In-place Information Governance reduces those costs by applying a business justified disposition policy of outdated information. That means less money spent on storage and e-Discovery.
Legal Risk & Compliance
For most regulated organizations, legal risk & compliance are the main motivators driving the need to manage information in-place. That’s because a solid and consistent governance model is required to enforce disposition and retention policies regardless of where information is stored. The strong compliance offered by In-Place Information Governance will help you mitigate the risks of sanctions, investigations and motions.
The alternative to In-place Information Governance involves costly central repositories and the massive overhead associated with servers, storage, and storage management software. By leveraging your existing infrastructural environment, NextPage can help you avoid ballooning IT costs.
By managing information in-place, organizations gain the advantage of simplified user adoption, minimizing the impact of change. Users won’t have to change their normal work patterns of creating, editing, saving, and emailing. That translates into higher adoption rates and better compliance.
