Information Lifecycle Governance

Information lifecycle governance (ILG) helps you manage your business information throughout its lifecycle – from creation to deletion. It addresses the problems that challenge records management, electronic discovery, compliance, storage optimization and data migration initiatives. By providing in-depth assessment of unstructured data where it resides, on-premises or in the cloud, these solutions give organizations visibility into data to make informed business decisions.

With information lifecycle governance solutions from IBM, you can discover how your organization can effectively manage the information lifecycle and avoid costs and risks to drive more business value from your data. Through data Assessment and cleanup, an organization can discover, recognize and act on unstructured data without moving it to a repository or specialty application. ILG also allows for simplified analysis of large amounts of corporate data to provide detailed analysis faster and limit the impact on user productivity by analyzing and managing data in-place.
