Thoughts About the Future of Data Preservation – Application Decommissioning

I just attended the excellent EMC World Momentum session facilitated by Andrew Bates of Flatirons solutions on the topic of next generation application decommissioning. Flatirons Solutions along with Tech Target, the global information technology research and advisory firm, recently produced a new white paper focused on next generation data preservation and application decommissioning. This paper was produced in association with the InfoArchive Consortium (IAC) an alliance committed to scaling and fostering the adoption of next generation unified archiving based on the EMC® InfoArchive platform.

Flatirons did a great job of describing the common business challenges associated with data preservation and application decommissioning. Andrew Bates helped the group articulate some of the common pitfalls and of course the necessary architectural underpinning of a next generation archiving strategy.

Great work Andrew and thanks to everyone who attended and contributed to the session. To find out more about next generation data preservation for application decommissioning download the Tech Target white paper from here.
