Why Automation is an Information Governance Game-Changer

Why Automation is an Information Governance Game-Changer

October 16, 2020
Information governance is growing in complexity as the volume and variety of information that organizations must manage expands at unprecedented rates. Automation is needed, but the task is so large that many organizations don’t know where to start. Our experts are here to help. Getting a handle on information begins with understanding what you need to keep and what should be discarded. Data hoarding exposes organizations to risk and adds to complexity. Automating information governance isn’t an-all-or nothing proposition. Take an incremental, deliberate approach, focusing on the areas with the highest ROI. Digitize as much as you can and apply governance policies from the moment data enters the organization. The payoff is along many dimensions: improved business agility, more responsive customer service, reduced risk of data breach and better regulatory compliance.

October 1, 2020
Putting structure to information is a key factor to making sense of it, and an essential building block to structuring your data is classification. But that’s just one part of the story - you need to know where your information comes from and where it moves, throughout its life cycle.
 
In this 30 minute session, hosted by Sue Trombley, our speakers discuss common challenges in defining and organizing information and the relationship between data and records. They will share tips on conveying the importance of information classification to internal stakeholders and managing it all in a compliant manner.
Making Smart Interconnected Choices

Making Smart Interconnected Choices

September 6, 2020
The global colocation market is expected to double by 2024 and interconnection is one big reason. Interconnection services enable businesses to exchange data with each other at extremely high speed and low cost using direct connections instead of public networks. Customers can also use the services to connect to multiple cloud providers and to leverage the most cost-effective carrier networks. Accessing the cloud via dedicated connections within a colocation facility can cut bandwidth costs by 60% compared to using the public Internet.
 
Interconnection has grown in importance as the average enterprise has grown to use 2.3 infrastructure-as-a-service providers and two platform-as-a-service providers while nearly tripling the use of cloud applications over a three-year period.
 
Nearly every colocation provider offers interconnection services, but the scope and terms vary widely. It’s important for customers to look for partners that offer them the greatest degree of choice with the lowest overhead cost. This podcast outlines the factors that should go into choosing a colocation interconnection partner and the growing range of services that are available.

What the Green Data Center of the Future Will Look Like

What the Green Data Center of the Future Will Look Like

August 25, 2020
With data centers consuming more than 1% of the world’s energy, companies that run hyperscale and co-location facilities are hard at work finding more sustainable sources of power and cooling. Iron Mountain’s Amsterdam data center has achieved numerous milestones. It runs entirely on renewable energy sources and boasts a power usage effectiveness ratio of 1.1, meaning that it wastes almost no energy. The techniques that have been pioneered in Amsterdam are being rolled out across Iron Mountain’s global data center portfolio as part of the company’s commitment to derive 100% of its worldwide electricity consumption from renewable sources. In this episode of Modern Governance, we hear about the innovations being used in Amsterdam and how they can be applied to data centers everywhere.
