As the cloud, social, mobile and Big Data mega trends continue unabated, organizations in all industries, and of all sizes are developing next-generation applications and better harnessing Big Data analytics to transform business. At the same time, these trends accelerate the need to retire legacy and redundant applications. This renders many traditional archiving approaches no longer viable, causing organizations to re-evaluate their storage and data management systems. Organizations need to be prepared to overcome the challenges presented by digital information especially as “dark data” continues to grow, applications expand, and regulations escalate.

Enter EMC. Only a short time ago we introduced EMC InfoArchive to the world and already the world is taking notice. Today, I’m pleased to share that EMC has been recognized as a visionary in the new Gartner Magic Quadrant for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement.

According to Gartner, by 2017, structure data archiving will represent one-fifth of the information governance efforts in enterprises and by 2016, 75 percent of structured data archiving applications will incorporate support for big data analytics. The report states that structured data archiving applications help IT leaders retire legacy applications, reduce costs, and meet governance and compliance requirements.

EMC’s InfoArchive strengths lie in strong retention/records management capabilities, and the ability to support unique content types, which is an important quality for application retirement use cases.

InfoArchive enables customers to efficiently manage inactive, yet valuable information – both structured data and unstructured content. It provides a single, easily accessible, unified repository to decommission legacy applications, thereby reducing maintenance costs and performance issues. InfoArchive is designed to keep information securely archived with appropriate levels of compliance applied to individual data sets – all while ensuring controlled access is extended to qualifying users within or outside the enterprise.

The good news is we’ve only just begun. We have big plans for InfoArchive, which include a longer-term vision to integrate with Pivotal and other ways to help customers leverage, repurpose and use Big Data to give them a competitive advantage and change the way they do business.  Read the Spark blog and learn more.
