Data Lifecycle Management

The unprecedented growth of data has created consistent challenges and expenses for all organizations. Solutions in this area are designed to organize, protect, document, and manage our customers’ electronic information according to industry and manufacturer best practices. Consideration must be given to how data is stored, how data is protected, how data is archived, and how data is disposed.

Below are some of the most common questions we hear from clients:

1. How to ensure regulatory compliance through data management practices?
2. Should the cloud be considered for archive or backup?
3. Which data needs to be protected, and which data needs to be eliminated?
4. What strategies exist to reduce storage / backup footprints?
5. Could data be recovered to operate the business after a disaster?

If these are some of the questions you are asking, you are not alone. Since the very beginning, helping our clients define, design, and implement a holistic data life-cycle management strategy has been and continues to be one of our greatest strengths at Zunesis.

Data Classification Assessment

8445704_s

For years, Zunesis has been using a common methodology and approach to help organizations understand what data they have today and what their data requirements look like in the future.  This consistent methodology is offered in a service called a Data Classification Assessment.  This Assessment defines what data exists, where it exists, how it is being used and by what applications, the value of the data to the organization, and how the data is (or should be) managed.

We employ automated, agentless information collection tools that quickly provide a wealth of data for analysis. These automated tools, combined with sit-down interviews with key stakeholders, provide a useful understanding of the current state as well as the expectations of the user community from various vantage points.

Zunesis has performed Data Classification Assessments for some of the largest companies in the world, medium-sized commercial firms, and both large and small public sector organizations. Every organization can benefit from this very valuable service.

Storage Assessment

Zunesis offers a Storage Assessment that helps clients reduce cost, decrease complexity, and understand areas of risk in their data storage environment.  Our storage architects work hand-in-hand with our clients to assess these areas:

  • What storage assets exist?
  • What data do they hold?
  • What are the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) associated with specific storage devices and data?
  • How do the current storage architecture and processes support these SLAs and user expectations?
  • What risks exist within the current storage strategy and architecture?
