Why “Store Everything” isn’t a Strategy for Information Governance

Oct 3, 2016 5:14:25 PM | Marketing

A tidal wave of information growth is adding complexity, cost and risk for most organizations. Multiple analyst firms indicate that data is growing by more than 40% annually—and will likely continue doing so for the foreseeable future. In fact, one estimate indicates that 90% of the world’s data has been generated in just the past two years. Now, many analysts are wondering about the implications of this, including Ase Dragland of Sintef. “Internet-based companies are awash with data that can be grouped and utilized,” he noted. “Is this a good thing?”1
