Information Lifecycle Management
Ensure the integrity of your collaboration workspaces and content
Our holistic approach to records and information management means we've got you covered from start to finish
Get it—and keep it—together
In order to apply appropriate information lifecycle management policies, organizations must accurately capture, track, and record all Microsoft 365 collaborative workspaces as they are created. Additionally, they must have measures in place to address the redundant, obsolete, and trivial content left behind by short-lived projects. This ROT content not only hinders productivity which results in user frustration, it also creates unnecessary risk exposure. As a best practice, organizations need to action lifecycle outcomes when content is no required for business purposes or by law.
Protect your organization by ensuring that you’re not holding on to too much — or too little — information.
Decrease storage costs
Data volume is growing rapidly. Reduce storage costs and mitigate overage fees by purging extraneous content.
Get rid of ROT to drive productivity, and improve the speed and accuracy of search, analytics, and e-discovery solutions.
Rest easy knowing that your Microsoft 365 workspaces and content are under control
- MANAGE YOUR WORKSPACES
Scale. Automate. Secure.
For good governance, balance collaboration and control.
With AvePoint’s Cloud Governance, you can empower users to create Teams, Sites and Groups in real-time, backed by a sustainable, efficient, and secure governance framework. From the very moment a Microsoft 365 workspace is provisioned, it enters the lifecycle management process. Organizations can right-size their policies to ensure that provisioned assets have correct classification, retention, metadata, and access controls in place from the outset. Going forward, workspace owners can also be automatically asked to review permissions and metadata and revise or confirm as necessary.
Oversee configuration settings, membership, and ownership change requests, with the ability to delete, revert, or notify of unauthorized changes
Improve data quality and speed up processes with automated, structured end-of-life processes that trigger alerts for potentially idle or irrelevant sites and content
Ask workspace owners to explicitly confirm extend a workspace’s lease or flag it for managed disposition
- COMMAND YOUR CONTENT
Good business is based on good information.
Your information is an asset. Turn it into an advantage.
Just as workspaces must go through an information lifecycle process, the content within them should be subject to the same. With Cloud Records, you can easily automate business rules to manage your entire content lifecycle—from creation to classification and retention—without user intervention. Achieve compliance with your company’s own policies as well as rapidly changing regulatory requirements at the local, state, and federal level.
Manage electronic content from Microsoft 365, SharePoint on-premises, Exchange Online, social media, and file systems directly alongside physical records
Draw upon comprehensive out-of-the-box reporting to understand the current state of lifecycle processes, easily adjusting approvals, terms, policies, and more
