The largest national multiline insurance had built a repository of Insurance policies (P&C and Life Insurance) on Microfilm and Microfiche in early 90’s, as a preservation strategy. They were grappling with issues as this technology became outdated over time:
• Risk of losing their only source of data for Insurance policies and corresponding communication, need to improve data availability and speed of claims evaluation
• Compliance issues, need of a WORM (write once read many) storage compliant with FINRA regulations, where data should be encrypted when at rest
• Total cost for digitization compared to 10-12 years of support left to maintain insurance policies was not very encouraging
• Required a low cost, cloud-based, FINRA-compliant document management solution which could provide quick access to stored data

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.

The job of a Records Management Office is to take all paper documents that need to be preserved, from all county offices, and implement a strategy to preserve them. When the law changed on January 1, 2001 to allow digitally scanned copies to be legal documents (The Illinois Electronic Records Act), the challenge to find a preservation system that would be both efficient and cost effective increased dramatically.
The basis for Legal Hold and Data Preservation Best Practices was the exceptional work by the group of presenters at the 2012 Conference on Preservation Excellence, held in Portland, Oregon in late September. The conference focused solely on the area of data preservation best practices.

Data drives everything in today's business world, and it would be hard to name a more important concern for today’s corporate arena than data preservation. The growing urgency of this matter, until last year a novelty to most attorneys, touched off a flurry of rulings in the area of legal holds in 2010, with several major court decisions redrawing the map in what had been virtual terra incognita.
The overall archiving market was $1.76 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow at an 11.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2019. EIA is emerging as a commonly used technology underpinning for higher-level use cases supporting compliance, information governance, e-discovery and historical preservation of data.

The costs of e-discovery are mind-blowing. Despite the technologists who announce advancements in storage, search and retrieval software to help drive down the unit costs, the frequency and sheer volume of e-discovery pushes costs in the opposite direction. With the ever burgeoning amount of data that is being created and retained each and every day, despite our best efforts to “govern” its retention, these costs seem destined to only escalate and further cut into corporate profits.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.
