ESG Research Report: The Transformational Rise of Active Archives

Abstract:

The digital economy is fueled by the seemingly unstoppable creation and insatiable consumption of data. To optimize costs, streamline management, and meet governance and regulatory requirements, organizations have traditionally archived non-production data on lower-cost storage tiers for years with little intention or need to reuse them. Things are evolving: The emergence and adoption of advanced digital transformation initiatives in recent years have placed data at the heart of the business and changed the nature of how archives can and should be leveraged. Rather than passive, “locked away” data sets, the past few years have seen the emergence of new requirements and solutions to make archives more “active” and leverageable to unlock business value.
