Many organizations are struggling with the twin issues of rapidly increasing data volumes and increasingly stringent regulatory compliance policies. Database archiving has the potential to solve both these issues and therefore should be in the in-tray of all CIOs. Although the benefits are great, the complexity of database archiving infrastructure and processing means that the implementation of such an initiative is fraught with technical risk. An IT organization should lead a cross-disciplinary team to deploy a database archiving initiative as part of its overall responsibility for data management in the enterprise.
