• Dealing with Dark Data
Discovering, Classifying & Governing your content
31 October 2013, 08:30 at the Law Society, London

Virtually every organisation has a dark data problem, even if the symptoms aren’t immediately visible. Dark data is neglected information which, when properly managed, can deliver value to the organisation whilst helping to reduce risk and cost. 

Oyster IMS together with HP Autonomy have developed practical dark data solutions, leveraging HP Information Governance tools: Records Manager, ControlPoint and AIO.

Halloween presents an appropriate date for this dark subject matter, when we will demonstrate some useful tricks and offer you a small treat. So, please join us for breakfast to find out how to deal with dark data and deliver ROI to your organisation as part of your information governance strategy. This breakfast briefing will be of particular interest to CTO and CIO’s, Senior Managers responsible for Compliance, and Records and Information Managers.
