The Business & Technology Challenges of Electronically Stored Information (ESI)
No organization is immune to the explosive growth in the volume of Electronically Stored Information (ESI). The rapid growth of ESI is having a tangible impact upon organizations in three primary areas, the volume of ESI upon the IT infrastructure, the legal implications and regulatory compliance. The impact of ESI upon corporate networks, infrastructures and email servers is burdening already strapped IT staff, impacting user productivity and driving up costs. Laws, regulations and company policies establishing the legal status, mandatory retention periods and discoverability of ESI have real consequences for organizations and virtually assure its rapid growth rates for the foreseeable future.
