ai.datapoint automates and manages the process of cleansing, categorising and migrating unstructured data from legacy content management systems, to SharePoint 2010 providing enhanced information governance with a typical cost saving of over 50%.
For organisations planning to migrate to SharePoint 2010, careful consideration needs to be given to the migration of content. Standard practice would dictate that all content is migrated over, whereas in reality the organisation will only need the relevant and corporately required information (however defined), moved to the new system. In addition to cleansing the content to be migrated, the structure, policy, metadata and security permissions also need to be migrated and possibly transformed during the process.
An Automated Solution
Using the latest innovation in categorisation technology, ai.datapoint not only enables an organisation to migrate content but they can also accurately cleanse, reorganise, consolidate and simplify their data holding in the process. This ensures that only the relevant and corporately required information is retained going forward, improving the information management situation while reducing information overload and costs in the process.
ai.datapoint examines file content and metadata to identify duplicate, near duplicate, redundant, obsolete and irrelevant data.
In addition ai.datapoint performs advanced mathematical analysis of file content and metadata allowing the file to be correctly categorised against the organisations information policy.
Having analysed the data, ai.datapoint will cleanse the data set based on the policy defined by the business.
This can be done for current and legacy data systems and so, can bring the previous data sets to users in a new collaborative SharePoint 2010 environment. This enhances the user experience, consolidates data holdings, improves data relevancy, allows the application of governance requirements and improves knowledge based productivity.
