Information lifecycle mgmt 1st panel

Clean up your act

To ensure efficiency, compliance (and savings!), organizations must accurately capture, track, and record all Microsoft 365 collaborative workspaces as they are created. This includes applying appropriate information lifecycle management policies to ensure content is not only retained as long as necessary, but then defensibly destroyed when no longer required. Additionally, measures must be in place to address the redundant, obsolete, and trivial content (ROT) left behind by short-lived projects. This ROT content not only hinders productivity and causes user frustration, but it also creates unnecessary risk exposures. By taking action on life on lifecycle outcomes when content is no longer required for business purposes or by law, organizations can maximize productivity and minimize risks associated with data mismanagement.

Reduce risk

Protect your organization by ensuring you’re not holding on to too much— or too little—information.

Decrease storage costs

Combat rapidly growing data volume. Reduce storage costs and mitigate overage fees by purging extraneous content.

Optimize efficiency

Get rid of ROT to drive productivity and improve the speed and accuracy of search, analytics, and e-discovery solutions.

Every dollar that is spent on IT are dollars that can’t go back to the clubs and rescue efforts. It could mean the difference in a club having a rescue boat or extra jet rescue when they need it. With these solutions, we are successfully reducing our IT budget and putting more money into saving lives.

Rest easy knowing that your Microsoft 365 workspaces and content are under control

    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
