About the Presentation
A growing percentage of the “data” managed by organizations can be considered “unstructured data” or data that does not reside in a traditional data base, file or system. A recent survey confirmed that files and other unstructured data were the source of the fastest data growth in their storage environments.
Unstructured data can include documents, emails, policies, audio and video, and products of your office environment, basically anything that does not fall under the auspices of normal structured data. Some organizations label unstructured data as “‘information”. No matter what it is or what we call it … the chances are that the unstructured data needs to be governed.
Questions around governing unstructured data focus on the definition of what is included on the “list”, the regulations associated with the governance of this data, how governance of unstructured data differs from (or is the same as) the governance of structured data. The people that are expected to answers the questions about why and how to govern unstructured data are the same people that have responsibility for the traditional data governance
