(ILM) solutions, the Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (Solix EDMS), that help
companies more efficiently classify, manage and secure enterprise data for

The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite is composed of Compliance and ILM

needs while leveraging existing capital investments for future initiatives. The

Federal regulations places unnecessary burden on corporate IT professionals,РІР‚Сњ said
Sai Gundavelli, chief executive officer, Solix Technologies. РІР‚СљIdentifying and

a haystack – provided that you used the right tool for the job. The Solix
Enterprise Data Management Suite will enable the worldРІР‚в„ўs largest customers to more
easily manage the vast amount of data that they collect as part of on-going business
operations; ensure its security; and be able to meet U.S. and international laws

their investments for future initiatives.РІР‚Сњ
With security events and threats at an all time high and news of lost tapes, stolen
laptops and customer data breaches, organizations need to ensure they are taking the
necessary steps to protect confidential information. According to Enterprise
Strategy Group, with as much as half of an enterpriseРІР‚в„ўs confidential data residing
in ERP, CRM, and custom applications, organizations need to ensure these
environments are secure. In addition, todayРІР‚в„ўs enterprises are struggling to manage
critical and confidential data more efficiently during a time in which storage
budgets have shown continuous increases despite declining storage costs.
Over the next four years, the Enterprise Strategy Group expects organizations to
archive approximately 7,500 petabytes of database information to help comply with
record retention regulations, retain structured information online at lower costs,
and create development environments supporting infrastructure and software upgrades.
РІР‚СљThere are clear benefits of managing database information from a single platform
as organizations must deal with evolving information security, information privacy
and information retention regulationsРІР‚Сњ said Brian Babineau, Senior Analyst,

sunsetting aged database applications, or leveraging inexpensive storage, Solix
