(ZL), the leader in enterprise information governance and analytics, will present at the National Conference on Managing Electronic Records (MER) scheduled for May 23-25 in Chicago.

  • Session S01: "Major Changes Are Ahead for IG. What Are They? What Will Be Their Impact?"

    Day: Monday May 23, 2016

    Time: 9:00 - 10:00 AM CT

    Session Description:

    In this opening panel discussion, information governance experts Barclay T.

Hear what experts believe you should know and will really matter, not just in 2016 but moving forward as well.

  • Session S23: "File Share Cleanup: How to do it Once… and Never Again"

    Day: Tuesday May 24, 2016

    Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM CT

    Session Description:

    The traditional project-based approach to enterprise file share cleanup yields temporary results; by the time the cleanup is complete, the file environment is already on its way to needing another cleanup. So if file shares are to be kept under control over time, the only logical option is to repeatedly conduct cleanup projects. Right?

    Wrong. An endless cycle of file cleanup projects can be avoided with careful selection of technology that aligns with long-term information governance architecture. This product showcase will examine how the right file analysis approach can provide not only a starting point for file share cleanup, but also an opportunity to proactively classify and govern files in perpetuity -- eliminating the need for repeated cleanup projects.

ZL Technologies will additionally be exhibiting on the conference expo floor, showcasing its flagship Unified Archive® (ZL UA) information governance platform and ZL File Analysis and Management (ZL FAM) product.
