FAS – File Analysis Services

The Challenge

  • Managing out of control data growth, particularly relating to unstructured data
  • Many studies show that up to 80 percent of business-relevant information originates in this form and typically consists of two basic categories:
    • Textual Objects such as Office documents, e-mails and  spreadsheets
    • Bitmap Objects inherently non-language based, such as image, video or audio files.
  • Client behaviour generally results in data rarely being deleted; often just moved through manual processes.
  • Compliance is also extending the required data retention times.
