The acquisition of StoredIQ advances IBM’s efforts to help clients derive value from big data, respond more efficiently to litigation and regulations, and dispose of information in an automated way that has outlived its purpose.
Adding StoredIQ to IBM’s big data offerings gives organizations tools for more effective governance of the vast majority of information, including its timely disposal to eliminate unnecessary data that consumes infrastructure and elevates risk. The addition of StoredIQ builds on IBM's prior acquisitions of PSS systems and Vivisimo as well as organic solutions that improve information economics including value-based archiving, records and retention management, ediscovery management, and disposal and data governance.
Named a 2012 Cool vendor by Gartner, StoredIQ has more than 120 customers worldwide, including global leaders in financial services, healthcare, government, manufacturing and other sectors. Other systems require months to index data and years to configure, install and address information governance. StoredIQ can be up and running in just hours, immediately helping clients drive out cost and risk.
