OpenText InfoArchive

Accelerate cloud transition, optimize infrastructure, and ensure compliance with a modern archiving solution

An introduction to OpenText InfoArchive

The Archiving Dilemma

Organizations must continually assess the cost of maintaining live data and applications for compliance and reference. The continued support and hardware costs must be weighed against the value of keeping the data live and accessible in its original form. Long retention periods can result in unnecessarily maintaining data in multiple systems.

While archiving is the obvious solution, new processes may raise concerns over disruption to operations and productivity, or worse, inflexible security controls may raise flags for IT. As a result, data often remains online in expensive, obsolete applications or is taken offline from the user base where the only value is retention compliance or legal hold. There is another option.

InfoArchive overview

OpenText InfoArchive is a modern archive solution and cloud-based service for compliant archiving of both structured and unstructured information highly-accessible, scalable and economical. Whether actively archiving business information to reduce system loads or de-commissioning applications to stand down outdated systems, InfoArchive is the flexible and cost-efficient way to reduce IT costs and accelerate the move to a modernized, cloud-based architecture. Users remain effective in their everyday work and can quickly access data and documents in familiar, process and role-specific views. This allows organizations to cost-effectively upgrade to new applications with only active data and still keep historical data only a click away.

InfoArchive also helps organizations quickly address dynamic new governance issues and compliance guidelines, such as data privacy regulations and eDiscovery requests, without costly changes to legacy applications and systems.
