Meeting the challenges of Information Governance in the Cloud Today, business is powered by best-of-breed apps with fast-growing collaboration apps leading the way. On average, companies are using 129 applications to power their workforce - resulting in data taking on new formats and accumulating in more hard to reach silos than ever before. This data fragmentation is creating new challenges for eDiscovery, legal hold, archiving, and more. In this session, we’ll discuss how organizations like yours can meet the challenges of cloud technology.
