What is Content Inventory?
70% of file-system content is redundant, outdated and trivial. Most of this is stale data – it hasn’t been touched in over a year. 15-20% is duplicate content and an additional 5-10% is orphaned content or not business relevant. The best way to deal with redundant, outdated and trivial content is to delete it.
Storing older content is worse than just an unnecessary cost because the value of storing it decreases quickly while the cost of storage does not. This creates an increasing negative return on investment as the value of what is being stored declines, increasing the cost-value gap.
Pingar DiscoveryOne controls your unstructured content cost by identifying documents that are candidates for disposal. DiscoveryOne provides a Content Inventory to identify low-hanging fruit for immediate archival and disposal. A second pass allows you to identify content that could be migrated to an Enterprise Content Management System.
