From good old WikiPedia: Information Lifecycle Management
I’m rather ashamed to admit I don’t know nearly enough about ILM. Moreover how to integrate an ILM solution into an existing DAM like Cumulus. The frustrating thing is I just don’t seem to know of many (or any) ILM integrations for my DAM. The one thing that comes close is the PresSTORE Integration developed by Canto Partner, Moksa.
The feature set is rather compelling, but is this integration “true” ILM for Cumulus? (see previous commend about needing to learn more!!!) I know enough so far to know that Backup is not Archiving. (hopefully future posts will dive into that topic. )
I’m going to be sitting in on a WebEx mid-November with my SysAdmin for FileTek’s StorHouse. Just a quick look at their website, I’m a comforted a little that they talk specifically about Digital Preservation and Archiving — not just backup. Further, one of their technology partners is OpenText, a rather large player in ECM. That says to me an integration is not totally outta the question… but rather how much $$$?
