One of the most important components that act like a lifeline of your organization is the data that is generated within the company by hundreds and thousands of employees. Why is this data so important that an organization would be nothing without it? Yes it is the life of the organization because the data that is there in the system is the result of years of hard work, research and work done by the company in all the required fields of their forte. Securing this data is important because it helps the company in reviewing its performance on a regular basis and helps the new employees of the organization in understanding the past record, performance and development of the company. Therefore data management or document management is of utmost importance as it helps any organization whether big or small in securing its data safely from the time of its inception.
Document management helps in saving the data in organized folders which can be segregated on various parameters such as their size, type, format and usage. For example all excel documents can be saved in one folder. Similarly PowerPoint and word documents in another folder.
A company sometimes has multiple clients and therefore there is huge amount of data generated pertaining to every single client. An effective way of storing these documents can be to have separate folders for each of these clients which make the search process simpler. Off lately there has been an upsurge in the number of companies offering professional data management services. Date capturing, document management, storage management and desktop virtualization are some of the wide spectrum of products and services offered by these one stop companies. They make use of innovative document capturing modules using ICR-OMR-OCR-IMR and Barcode recognition technologies. Some of the popular soft ware’s used for document management and storage management are AutoRec, AutoDoc and AppliDis.
Storage management is inevitable in an organization where data is growing at the rate of 50-60% per year. The goal of storage management is to maximize utilization across heterogeneous platforms and arrays while increasing operational efficiency with the centralized storage manager that offers end- to- end visibility and centralized control to the system. It also helps in applying the retention policies effectively across all files and folders, managing and finding information as demanded. Some of the advantages of using storage management are that it increases the efficiency of primary storage system with built-in duplication and compression thereby reducing de duplication footprints by 70%. For making way for these latest technologies in your workstation there are certain requirements in terms of infrastructure such as transceivers and SFP+ transceiver.
Small form factor pluggable or SFP+ transceiver is used for both data communication and telecommunication applications. It is used for interfacing the motherboard to fiber optic cables or other networking cables that carry the signal to the server. Due to its compatibility and smaller size they have replaced the Gigabit interface converter and it is compatible with many communication standards such as SONET, Ethernet and fiber channels.
