Executive Summary

In recent years, the success of Microsoft's SharePoint products and technologies has led to an explosion in data management requirements. IT environments struggle to manage the rapid growth of SharePoint, while at the same time ensure that their exist?ing environment will scale to fit their growing needs.

SharePoint has a few native controls to help manage data, but organizations that don't implement plans for manag?ing their data growth can become overwhelmed with the sheer volume of data created within a SharePoint environ?ment. In addition, if proper thought is not put into server design, storage considerations, content security, and disas?ter tolerance, small issues soon turn into larger ones.

Organizations need a comprehensive approach to SharePoint design that takes into account all the data man?agement challenges a SharePoint environment creates and that gives administrators control over their infrastructure. This whitepaper addresses the most common types of data management challenges SharePoint administrators face and discusses different solutions organizations have taken to address those challenges.

The paper incorporates information obtained from a survey of more than 350 SharePoint administrators, architects, and business deci?sion makers that focused on understanding what the data management challenges are and how they're currently being addressed.
