Given the sheer volume of enterprise data highly regulated organizations need to manage, an intelligent cloud archiving solution to unify and provide insightful visibility across all information, companies is essential for meeting regulatory compliance, ensuring legal endpoint preparedness, and maintaining IT efficiency. As IT budgets mostly remain flat, organizations must rely on a cloud archiving solution that can effectively manage information and simultaneously address cost-reduction initiatives.
Compliance Data Lake
Compliance Data Lake technology enables ingestion, enrichment, preservation, and administrative handling of messaging and contextual data across all business communication platforms (e.g. email, instant messages, mobile, social media, unified communications, collaboration platforms, voice, audio, and video conferencing, etc.) with high performance and at scale. A critical design element of compliance archiving, the unified Compliance Data Lake provides the foundation for maximizing the value of archival data via interactive search, discovery, data surveillance, early case assessment, audit controls, and rich, actionable analytics.
The Compliance Data Lake makes up the bedrock for a contextual search, data surveillance, data discovery, and analytic insights experience. It enables diverse business functions in highly regulated companies to derive value from the data required of policies.
Once collected and populated within the Compliance Data Lake, the full value of archived information can be realized by your organization through a comprehensive compliance archive. Compliance archiving provides capabilities in the following areas:
- Effortless, high-performing search and export
- Supervision and risk mitigation
- Early case assessment, legal hold, and regulatory compliance auditing
- Analytical reporting and insights
- Documented RESTful interfaces (APIs) for integration into third-party systems and workflows
Compliance archiving requires a single data source to enable consistent, streamlined searches for audit controls and readiness, supervision, data surveillance, ediscovery, and production. The Compliance Data Lake also allows for a separation of storage and computation, accelerating search time. A Compliance Data Lake presents a single, unified namespace that enables legal and compliance professionals to index and search across very large quantities of data.
This is invaluable because it removes the need by organizations to know in advance what electronic communication tool or technical communications format was used before searching the business communication archive.
A unified architecture supports the consolidation of electronic communication in a unified object store and streamlines holistic, single pane-of-glass analysis and data governance.
