CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DiscoverReady®, a leading information intelligence solutions provider specializing in legal, compliance and governance, today announced a report addressing how I&O leaders can manage data usage and growth by implementing effective governance and data management strategies. The report “Why ‘Store Everything’ Is Not an Effective Information Governance Strategy” was issued by Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry.

“Global organizations are sitting on petabytes of aged data from legacy applications, while facing rapidly growing volumes of new data both on-premise and in the cloud,” said Matthew D. Nelson, vice president, advisory services, and general counsel, privacy and security, at DiscoverReady. “We believe that the governance, security and management challenges are immense. The Gartner analysts advise ‘organizations that lack the full awareness of regulatory requirements to which they must adhere can overcollect owing to excessive “keep everything forever” retention policies.’”

To help corporations and law firms learn more about Gartner perspectives on and recommendations for information governance, DiscoverReady has made the report “Why ‘Store Everything’ Is Not an Effective Information Governance Strategy” available to access for a limited time.

Working with legal counsel, DiscoverReady helps organizations understand their global data footprint and engage compliance, security and risk departments in building effective data management and governance infrastructures.
