Investing in smarter information management is the key to low-cost governance of internal Big Data
Organizations today are faced with myriad challenges, risks and threats from the data they store.

These costly vulnerabilities are magnified for organizations that are heavily regulated or litigation-prone, particularly when looming audits and investigations so often require large amounts of electronically stored information to be extracted, analyzed and reviewed. Although it has become imperative for organizations to invest in proactive information governance, available technologies have not always been practical or affordable.

They also need to ability to reach in with precision to engage select datasets with confidence to reduce risks and avoid uncontrolled spending.
