RSD Included in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement

RSD, a leading provider of Information Governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced its inclusion in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement, published on June 11, 2014.

According to Gartner, “Structured data archiving applications help IT leaders retire legacy applications, reduce costs and meet governance and compliance requirements.” Gartner’s report links the close connection between data archiving and information governance.

“By 2017, structured archiving will represent one-fifth of the Information Governance efforts in enterprises,” according to the report. “By 2016, 75% of structured data archiving applications will incorporate support for big data analytics.”

Additionally, Gartner says: “Most of the IT focus on preparing for and responding to e-discovery requests has been for unstructured data. However, there have been numerous cases where structured data has been a target for discovery requests. The discovery of structured data presents challenges, and organizations want to ensure they can respond quickly to requests for information when that information is not accessible from its native application. By taking an active and systematic approach to application retirement, organizations can purge data that no longer has business relevance, not only to reduce costs for maintenance, but also to reduce the cost of responding to ediscovery requests by making data more searchable, defensible and easier to preserve.”

RSD has been successfully delivering archiving solutions to global companies for 40 years, and has built an industry-leading Information Governance solution from the ground-up to complement that business.

“We’ve been saying for some time that companies who are considering an archiving solution must also be thinking about Information Governance,” said Tamir Sigal, vice president of global marketing and strategy at RSD. “We feel RSD is between the two worlds coming together, with our history in delivering a world-class archiving solution used by Fortune 1000 companies and our purpose-built Information Governance platform RSD GLASS.”
