In the federal government, perhaps more than any other entity in the country, data is growing at an unprecedented rate. And that includes not only documents but images, video, audio, sensor data, email, social media files, and more. Without structure, data becomes virtually impossible to find when it’s required for eDiscovery, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and compliance with retention mandates. It also becomes much more difficult to apply the type of sophisticated analytics necessary to unlock the true value of that data. Finally, lack of structure also makes it difficult to ensure that data is fully secure in compliance with federal regulations.
