Create new value from historical data


Empower business teams with a ‘living’ archive

Every organization has important business information that must be kept available over the long term, whether for regulatory compliance, operational activities or servicing customer requests. Moving your information to the Columbus DW content repository allows you to create a highly accessible ‘living’ archive which is simple and intuitive for business teams to use.

Archives can be accessed directly from a web interface and mobile app, integrated with ERP and customer service applications to provide seamless access for frontline workers, and mined for actionable insights using business intelligence platforms.

An integrated archiving solution for all enterprise content

Information of all types, from financial records, contracts and other legal documents to business-complete data from your core applications, can be brought together in a single, integrated archive. Data is stored in a secure, unalterable format, with information lifecycle management to ensure compliant retention management and timely destruction at end of life.
