Ever thought about migrating your organization’s data? You might visualize it as packing up your old stuff and moving it into a new, shiny, and much larger home. What if we told you that the migration process can be more than just a simple ‘lift and shift’? What if it could be a meticulously planned journey that not only moves your data but also makes it smarter and better integrated into your broader Information Governance (IG) program? Welcome to the world of Intelligent Migrations.
As specialists in Information Governance, eDiscovery, and migrations for Microsoft M365, at Kindato Corp, we know a thing or two about making data migrations fun (yes, we said fun!), professional, and incredibly beneficial for your business. Let’s talk about why intelligent migrations should be the star player in your Information Governance strategy.
What are Intelligent Migrations?
Let’s begin by deciphering what we mean by ‘Intelligent Migrations.’ Traditional data migrations are often a one-size-fits-all ‘lift and shift’ operation. However, Intelligent Migrations go a step further by utilizing cutting-edge AI technology to analyze, categorize, and filter data during the migration process. This enables organizations to retain useful data, discard redundant, obsolete, and trivial (ROT) data, and improve data quality, all while reducing storage costs and increasing operational efficiency.
The Intersection with Information Governance and Knowledge Management
The magic really starts to happen when Intelligent Migrations intersect with Information Governance (IG) and Knowledge Management. An effective IG strategy requires an understanding of the data you hold, where it resides, who can access it, and how it’s used. Meanwhile, Knowledge Management is all about leveraging organizational knowledge efficiently. This is where Intelligent Migrations shine.
By automatically classifying and organizing data during the migration process, Intelligent Migrations creates a foundation for both effective IG and Knowledge Management. They provide insight into the data, making it easy to implement access controls, retention policies, and regulatory compliance measures. Moreover, with well-structured data, Knowledge Management becomes more streamlined, promoting innovation and driving business growth.
The Role of Content Lifecycle Management
Content Lifecycle Management (CLM) is another crucial factor in a well-rounded IG strategy. It involves managing and monitoring content from its creation or ingestion through its archival and eventual disposal. Intelligent Migrations play a significant role in CLM by providing an opportunity to review and restructure data management policies.
For instance, during an Intelligent Migration, an organization can decide what data to keep, archive, or delete based on business value, legal requirements, and data aging policies. This not only ensures regulatory compliance but also makes the data more manageable and useful for the business.
Intelligent Migrations: Your Key to an Efficient IG Strategy
In the world of Information Governance, there’s no ‘one size fits all.’ However, Intelligent Migrations can provide a strong basis for a flexible and adaptable IG strategy. By integrating AI-powered technology into your data migration process, you can enhance Knowledge Management, streamline Content Lifecycle Management, and ensure a robust, effective Information Governance program.
