Information Lifecycle Management
The Challenge

Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) is a data management practice that manages data right from inception to storage to eventual disposal for its cost, use and value to the organization. Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) uses established policies to determine how data should be managed and what data tiers and storage technologies are best suited to the data value and use.

Implementing ILM requires organizations to recognize that data value declines over time and implement processes and technology to classify and archive data from production systems and migrate and retire legacy applications where appropriate. Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) ensures that under-utilized data is moved out of expensive Tier 1 storage technologies into less expensive Tier 2 or Tier 3 solutions, freeing up IT resources from creating unnecessary back-ups and clones for test and development while ensuring data access is maintained in the original application context.
