Geneva, Switzerland (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
RSD, a leading provider of information governance solutions for the enterprise, today announced RSD GLASS® Governance Services for Microsoft SharePoint 2013.
“We are proud to continue to enhance our information governance capabilities for the rapidly growing SharePoint content platform,” said Bassam Zarkout, Chief Technology Officer at RSD. “Many organizations plan to upgrade to SharePoint 2013 to take advantage of the new features and benefits. RSD continues to provide non-intrusive governance for the SharePoint environment so that all content in an organization is governed consistently under the same corporate policies, regardless of where that content resides and in which system and jurisdiction. Customers rest at ease, knowing they will not have to chance a risky or costly migration in order to enforce governance policies. With RSD GLASS, content remains in-place in SharePoint while governed from one location.”
Microsoft SharePoint is collaboration software that allows employees to create web sites to share information, manage documents, and publish reports. In an environment of growing regulation over business information, customers need to ensure that they remain in compliance even as data and document volume grows exponentially across the enterprise.
“One of the major challenges facing organizations today is applying information governance to the different information assets that reside in a variety of data sources and repositories. This is not limited to SharePoint alone, but also includes ECM repositories, shared file systems, and others. It is imperative that SharePoint information assets are governed transparently, along with all corporate content within an organization,” Zarkout commented.
Information governance enforces desirable behavior in the creation, use, archiving, and deletion of corporate information. It ensures proper retention and disposal of records, ensures data privacy rules are enforced, and supports e-discovery requirements, storage optimization, and metadata management across multiple repositories and jurisdictions. RSD GLASS enables governance controls without impeding growth and benefits of SharePoint environments – delivering a transparent and non-intrusive solution. In addition to Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013, RSD GLASS supports in-place governance for all major content repositories, including EMC® Documentum®, IBM® FileNet®, Alfresco, and HP Autonomy®, as well as compliant storage systems like EMC Centera and Hitachi HCP.
“The added features of SharePoint 2013, including social media, improvements to mobile offerings, and an app store for the enterprise, will surely be well-received by end-users. However, these features will also compound the governance problems associated with growth of content,” continued Zarkout. “These factors make a complete information governance solution that much more imperative.”
