Data Classification: The Cornerstone for Successful Information Lifecycle Management
Data classification is one cornerstone to achieving the full value of broader storage-related programs. Including data classification as an integral component of a storage-related program provides the opportunity to gather the information necessary to optimize storage environment and maximize return on investment. The end objective of data classification is ultimately to provide an actionable grouping of data within an enterprise. The resulting data classification model can then be used to either build a business case around current enterprise storage practices or to facilitate the implementation of storage-related program recommendations.
