How three very different companies are managing rapid database growth

By Patrick Eitenbichler



Wanted to share three great customer success stories. The companies are very different from each other, but they’re all grappling with business challenges posed by surging data growth: meeting compliance obligations, controlling storage costs, and optimizing performance. The companies turned to HP Database Archiving software to solve these problems, and more.



Tektronix, a U.S.-based provider of test and measurement solutions to the electronics industry, improved application and database performance by more than 47%, and aced compliance tests in 29 countries, despite data growth of 1.25 GB per month.



Tong Yang Group, a Taiwanese automotive parts manufacturer, experienced data growth at a rate of 30-40 GB on average per month - impacting database performance and causing
user-related issues. Tong Yang saw an immediate 10% increase in efficiency in handling orders, and they gained the ability to support 7% business growth in 2009 despite the economic recession.



Turkey is both a private financial services company and the country’s central depository for dematerialized securities. The agency’s database grew 1000 times in a one-year period, due in part to industry regulations requiring financial services firms to store more data for longer periods of time. With HP Database Archiving software, the agency met its growing data archiving needs while reducing storage costs by 50%.’s Central Registry Agency

HP TRIM for SharePoint and the Enterprise – Launch vs. Reality

By Kris Brown 


We launched HP TRIM 7 last week, and for the most part the press coverage was about the new SharePoint integration. Now don’t get me wrong, as one of the team that is responsible for the product and the launch, I would say we accomplished what we set out to achieve regarding our SharePoint support. But what we actually set out to achieve beyond that, may not necessarily be as apparent from what you read in the media.


In the press last week we saw a lot of this…


“The fact that a large company like HP recognizes the need for this type of management in the enterprise is significant. Companies are being flooded with information, while at the same time, they come under increasing pressure to monitor and in some instances, control this information.”    Fierce Content Management


 “Given the number of organizations that are now using SharePoint and are considering SharePoint 2010, the new HP TRIM modules are quite timely and probably not the last module we are likely to see for TRIM.”   CMSWire


And yes, HP TRIM 7 can seamlessly manage SharePoint content, not just documents.  Yes, it can help an organization archive information based on our lifetime management policies.  And yes, I think that we are extending SharePoint to a place where almost any organization could consider it for their frontline information collaboration platform.  But that’s not all we introduced in this launch!



HP TRIM also introduced a range of other new product features and enhancements. So here is a laundry list of highlights that hopefully will put some of the constabulary at rest… for now...



ThatTRIMGuy’s Top Ten HP TRIM 7 Enhancements (sans the SharePoint Integration):




10. A brand new SDK set, including SDK.NET and SDKUI.NET.  Separating our user interface components from our standard SDK, enables our partner and developer community to build even more extensible add-ons for HP TRIM 7;



9.   While this isn’t necessarily a functional enhancement, the acquisition of TOWER by HP, has meant that HP TRIM now has access to all the power of the testing and performance tools that HP development teams have. Which only means good things for the customer base!



8.   Full DoD 5015 v3 certification including all chapters Baseline, Classified, FOI and Privacy, ensuring HP TRIM continues its tradition of being one of the most certified products on the market. For the record, SharePoint 2007’s certification has expired and SharePoint 2010 doesn’t have DoD certification at the writing of this blog;



7.   Unicode support, ensuring our ability to move towards providing access to HP TRIM in all markets around the world;



6.   New search engine improvements, including parametric searching, and the ability to provide effective filtering by a search;



5.   User settings that follow the user through all of the HP TRIM 7 interfaces, such as favorites, recent documents, saved searches and even labels (which are now hierarchical);



4.   New Mini Crash Dump facilities to help you and the help desk provide detailed error information;



3.   New architectural features, like providing more efficient transport of database requests in WAN environments, for even faster search results;



2.   New workgroup features including distributed event processing, allowing multiple workgroup services process a single event type for an even more scalable solution; and



…. the # 1 HP TRIM 7 enhancement…. a brand new Web Client!


But this is only a short highlights reel, there are many other significant improvements, including 64-bit support, improved record type scalability, new email drag and drop functions, schema report and repair, and updated platform support.


So don’t judge a launch by its press coverage alone… If you’re reading this… then the coverage did its job. But as you can see above, HP TRIM 7 has introduced significant new features and improvements for all of our customers!


If you are in Australia in late March, be sure you register for TUF 23, our annual user forum.  If not, look out for HP TRIM 7 at an industry event near you!

What would you say if... An HP TRIM for SharePoint Primer – Part 2

By Kris Brown 


What would you say if I told you, you can have fully compliant records management for SharePoint, without the hassle of doing records management (RM).  You’d probably say I’ve already read that blog, and it's time you told me something else.



Then what would you say if I told you that you can archive SharePoint sites, using automated rules to a Department-of-Defense-compliant Records Management platform.



HP TRIM 7 has recently introduced a new module that does just that.



In conjunction with the new HP TRIM for SharePoint Records Management module, HP is proud to announce the HP TRIM for SharePoint Archive module.



This module makes use of the same set of functions provided to the RM module, including Lifetime Management Policies, but allows organizations to manage, finalize, relocate and archive information from the site level and above.



Have you ever been involved in a project team that utilized a team site for collaboration?  How many times did you revisit that site after the project ended?  Probably not very many, if at all.  However, I’d be almost certain in saying that this team site still exists, is still being crawled by SharePoint, and is still returning results for searches.  While that might be important for a short time after the project ends, it is likely that a lot of the information created on that site will become stale, and perhaps even inaccurate.  Returning results from this site, could lead to an incorrect decision in the future.



SharePoint performance will also be affected by this continued growth of team sites. This is one of a  number reasons for CIO’s not formally deploying SharePoint across their entire organization.  The lack of control of the growth of SharePoint or put another way, the success of SharePoint to capture the users' information, is a key reason to put in place a records management system.



I hear you say is that you don’t want your users to be burdened with Records Management.  Well, HP TRIM 7’s Archive Module utilizes Lifetime Management Policies to seamlessly transfer information from SharePoint in the form of entire sites, and site collections to HP TRIM.  No user interaction is required, other than to use SharePoint in the way it was designed.  The records management burden is removed from the user while records management rigor is applied to important information as deemed so by the Records Manager.



And let’s be honest…  90% (or maybe even higher) of any given user base cares very little for the regulatory needs of an organization… But the organization still has those needs. HP TRIM 7 can meet you in the middle, allowing the experts in records to manage the information, and the experts in their fields, HR, Finance, Operations etc etc, get on with using SharePoint as a tool to get their work done.



Watch for more HP TRIM 7 updates…  including all things NOT related to SharePoint.

What would you say if... An HP TRIM for SharePoint Primer – Part 1

By Kris Brown


What would you say if I told you that you can have fully compliant records management for SharePoint, without the hassle of actually doing records management (RM)?


Or if I told you that you can let your user base collaborate freely in SharePoint, without the fear of losing control of the critical business information?


I suspect you’d say:  GREAT, but what’s the catch?


There is no catch. HP TRIM 7 has recently introduced a pair of new modules that do just that.


And this solution is coming not a day too soon. SharePoint sites the world over are housing more and more business sensitive and business critical information, and CIOs, IT and Storage Managers are constantly asking how are they going to control not only the growth of their SharePoint environment, but also the records that are contained within SharePoint.


So here we go...  The HP TRIM for SharePoint Records Management module introduces four new features to the RM space in SharePoint.



  • Manage

  • Finalize

  • Relocate

  • Archive


These four features provide the capability to capture and manage any SharePoint content. Not just documents, and definitely not just things in a specific web part!



  • Manage – This feature allows you to take a copy of the object and put it in HP TRIM, where metadata, retention, classification and security are all applied automatically, according to rules set in SharePoint.

  • Finalize – This feature allows you to take a copy of the object and put it in HP TRIM, where metadata, retention, classification and security are all applied automatically, according to rules set in SharePoint and mark it Final. So no further edits can be made.

  • Relocate – This feature allows you to move the object and put it in HP TRIM, where metadata, retention, classification and security are all applied automatically, according to rules set in SharePoint, and still allow it to be edited from HP TRIM.

  • Archive – This feature allows you to move the object and put it in HP TRIM, where metadata, retention, classification and security are all applied automatically, according to rules set in SharePoint, and mark it Final, so it cannot be edited.


The powerful Lifetime Management Policies in HP TRIM 7 are a key enabler for these new capabilities. They are built into SharePoint, and provide a Records Manager or SharePoint Administrator with the ability to set rules around ALL different types of SharePoint content (not just documents!).


For example:


On a SharePoint HR team site, the HR users might go through an employee on-boarding process, with applications for jobs, interviews and the like. This type of information would require all sorts of different retention, classification and security. Based on SharePoint Content Types, user names and the metadata required by the SharePoint team site, HP TRIM’s Lifetime Management Policies can automatically place those objects including calendar items, announcements, and discussion items directly into the HP TRIM Records Management platform.  Once there, they will be managed according to the rules set by the administrators -- all without the need for the user to interact with TRIM.


In fact, users will not need to see HP TRIM or even have it installed on their desktop. They can continue to work in the SharePoint environment they are familiar with and the organization can feel safe in the knowledge that the information created is managed in the way that the Information Management policies of the business dictate.


It certainly doesn’t get any easier, or more transparent than that !!

SourceOne customer speaks, but HP IAP customers boast

An EMC customer has spoken about the new SourceOne suite, saying:




  • EMC’s solution is not the cheapest.


  • They wonder if they’ve over-bought.


  • They’d like to see EMC add support for end-user access to the archive through mailboxes.
HP customers speak louder: Here’s what HP IAP customers are saying about HP’s comprehensive solution:Brunel University: “What we have is effectively the best 'find' button on the internet!  Beyond just efficiency, the solution has helped Brunel further enhance its reputation for corporate integrity, and you simply can't put a price on that.”Coscon: “The software and hardware integrated solution delivered by HP has not only mitigated the risks we faced, but also helped us to realise real-time mail data management in an effective manner within a short period of time.”Dubai International Financial Centre: “With the HP IAP we have peace of mind knowing that we can be in full compliance with legal and financial regulations.  It has made it far easier for us to retrieve any email we need— we can now do it in minutes.”

 

Government Launches Bold New Recovery Effort

By Kurt Leafstrand, Clearwell Systems, Inc.

While we don’t normally report news on the blog, this article seemed important enough to repost in its entirety…


SEEKING NEW AVENUE FOR COST-CUTTING, GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES BOLD NEW RECOVERY EFFORT


WASHINGTON — Senior Administration officials today took the wraps off of their latest effort to stabilize the American economy: The nationalization of the electronic discovery industry. According to a senior official who declined to be identified, “Even before the beginning of the current turmoil, everyone acknowledged that electronic discovery costs were out of control. Now, with litigation accelerating and corporate earnings plummeting, something had to be done. Without this action, a significant number of leading American corporations would be in danger of shutting their doors due to the overwhelming burden of e-discovery.”


A Single Common Portal


Effective immediately, all electronic discovery projects are being centralized under a single authority, the National Electronic Record Discovery Institute (NERDI). The Institute will be launching a nationwide electronic discovery portal on April 1, 2009 at www.ediscovery.gov (see demo). The site will build upon the recent success of the government’s economic recovery accountability site, www.recovery.gov. Said one Institute official, “Just drop the ‘r’ and insert a ‘dis’, and you get eDiscovery. It really is the next logical step in the government’s efforts to help the country in a time of profound need.”


Industry experts initially expressed skepticism about the government’s ability to make electronically discoverable information available in an efficient, expedient, and secure manner. Early plans had the government using the U.S. Postal Service and the network of I.R.S. tax return servicing centers as the logistical backbone for managing the collection and processing of documents. However, after negotiations with the National Security Agency, this step was eliminated from the process. Instead, all electronically-generated information in the United States will be instantly processed and made available through the ediscovery.gov site. Commented an NSA spokesman, “We have all the information anyway; why not make it easily accessible, instead of pretending it’s not here?” As for security, officials stated that “individuals can expect the same level of security and identify protection they’ve come to expect from their financial institutions and credit card companies, along with the additional protection and responsiveness they’ve come to expect from the Federal government.”


The Future of the E-Discovery Industry


What will become of the existing electronic discovery industry, made up of hundreds of individual vendors with aggregate revenue estimated to be in the $2-3 billion dollar range? According to a senior-level NERDI director, “One word: toast.” However, a group of industry software vendors and service providers has expressed open skepticism about the ability of a historically incompetent, multilayered bureaucracy to deliver electronic discovery services more effectively than the competitive market.


One vendor pointed out that it will be “difficult for the government to establish itself as a credible player in electronic discovery with millions of White House emails still missing without a trace.” In response, the group of vendors that make up the Top 5 Software and Service Provider lists on the 2008 Socha-Gelbmann survey (Autonomy, Clearwell, Fios, FTI, Guidance, Kroll, and LexisNexis) have announced an immediate consolidation of operations under the name ClearGuideAutoKrolLexFTios. Gloated new incoming CEO Rick Wagoner, “Our expectation is to roll over the government’s efforts like our new name rolls off your tongue.”



 

Compliance concerns resulting from cross-border litigation

By Patrick Eitenbichler


On April 7th, the Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance Journal published a great article written by Brandon Cook, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Clearwell Systems.


Brandon describes how the increasing number of business transactions across borders leads to more litigation, government inquirires, and compliance audits spanning international boundaries.  Using a number of real-life examples, he shows the implications and then provides recommendations on how to get prepared for cross-border e-discovery.


Take a read:  "Why Cross-Border Litigation is a Compliance Concern"


 

EMC's new services: Not new to HP customers

The EMC announcement of the SourceOne suite includes new consulting services to help customers develop information policies which align with business goals and regulatory requirements.

 HP already provides customers with regulatory compliance services, such as compliance and e-discovery workshops, information discovery and classification, business value analysis and requirements development, compliance and data policy assessment, and information policy definition.  Furthermore, the May 2008 acquisition of EDS enables HP to deliver a broad portfolio of information technology, applications and business process outsourcing services to clients in manufacturing, financial services, healthcare, communications, energy, transportation, retail industries, and government. In fact, HP recently increased its Information Management Services headcount by 10X, to further meet the needs of its customers.

 

EMC announcement: More like "PromiseOne"

On April 2, 2009 EMC finally announced the long-awaited replacement of EmailXtender.  No surprise.  Actually, it looks like they tried to announce it on April 1 and then pulled all the links—perhaps it was feared it would be seen as an April Fool’s joke.  What isn’t a joke is that this product, called SourceOne Email Management, is actually not a one-source archive solution—yet.  Like its predecessor, it does still archive one overall type of content: messaging.  EMC says that later this year they will release file, XML, and SharePoint archiving.  So, that’s when it will be “one source”?  Not exactly.  Why?  Because the SourceOne product family is not integrated.  Give them twelve to eighteen months—hey, they promised after all.

Bottom line: EMC’s announcement does not compare to the breadth and range of HP’s current offerings, and EMC is more than six months late to market with a product that does not even fulfill what they previously communicated to customers in terms of their key archiving needs.  Furthermore, the release of SourceOne Email Management is a replacement for EmailXtender, and what EMC is delivering with this release is a mere promise of what this product could become in the next year to eighteen months.  In these economic times, we need more than promises to show ROI like what HP IAP customers have been achieving for more than four years:

--Improving staff productivity by up to 80%, and email- and file-based productivity by over 34%


--Lowering email and document processing, review, and production costs by up to 90%


--Reducing time needed to analyze email and documents from weeks to minutes


--Achieving control of their corporate data, improving information governance

Time to Work Together on Electronic Discovery

by Kurt Leafstrand, Clearwell Systems, Inc.

teamwork2Cheesy Successories posters aside (for an alternative take, go here), the need to work together is much more than just a cliché in today’s environment.


In its recent brief on the five major trends that will shape business technology in 2009, leading management consultancy McKinsey and Company noted one trend in particular which highlights the urgent need for an organization’s IT and legal groups to forge better, faster, and more efficient ways of collaborating on electronic discovery issues:


Regulators demand more from IT


Government scrutiny of business will intensify in many developed countries. Already, in the United States, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency weighs in on the resiliency of banking systems, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that many pharmaceutical systems be “validated,” and Sarbanes-Oxley drives decisions about accounting systems in every industry. In the future, policy makers and regulators will probably demand that IT systems capture more and better data in order to gain greater insight into and control over how banks manage risk, pharma companies manage drugs, and industrial companies affect the environment. Government officials also will monitor many legal and business rules more closely to ensure compliance with mandates. Successful CIOs should enhance their relationships with internal legal and corporate-affairs teams and be prepared to engage productively with regulators. They will need to seek solutions that meet government mandates at manageable cost and with minimal disruption.


- McKinsey Quarterly, February 2009


The current economic environment is creating a “Double Whammy” within almost every enterprise that has ongoing or pending electronic discovery issues (and are there many organizations left out there that don’t?):




  • As the McKinsey article notes, regulators will increasingly be demanding more from IT as government scrutiny of business intensifies. Just look at the just-launched recovery.gov site to see the level of transparency and accountability that the government is aiming for with regard to the stimulus package. The bailout will not directly affect every business, but there is a new sheriff in town who will likely set the tone across the entire business landscape.


  • At the same time, there is relentless pressure on controlling costs. When times are tough, dollars that can be saved on the expense side are much more valuable that top-line revenue, since 100% of every dollar of cost savings goes directly to the bottom line.

The net-net: Enterprises will be forced to do more, with less.


How? With regard to electronic discovery, there is a lot of low-hanging fruit to be picked in the area of IT and legal cooperation:



  • In-house legal teams should meet with IT (if they aren’t already) to help them better understand the nature of electronic discovery, particularly as it applies to the more “upstream” parts of the process (specifically, identification, preservation, and collection) which IT tends to be more responsible for. Through a better understanding of the nature of electronic discovery, IT can improve its ability find the right documents, avoiding over-collection and reducing downstream processing costs. In addition, new electronic discovery technologies are making it increasingly easy for legal to own more of the process, reducing the electronic discovery burden on IT.


  • Conversely, IT should coordinate with in-house legal teams to provide advice and mentoring as legal seeks to bring e-discovery platforms in-house to assist with early case assessment, search, culling, and analysis. To many legal teams, bringing e-discovery in-house may seem like a daunting proposition, but enterprise software has been around for a long time, and learning from IT’s experiences can make the process far less intimidating.

Yes, regulators are going to be far more demanding in the future than they have been in the past. But some simple collaboration and coordination between IT and legal will go a long way toward lightening the regulatory burden, especially as it pertains to electronic discovery.




 

Managing Holds in HP TRIM

Holds are a significant business event.  Toward that end HP TRIM maintains a separate business object for them, allowing you to create holds, describe them and associate them to records.  As with all other objects in HP TRIM you can create and assign as many metadata fields to holds as you wish.


By default each holds is created with a descriptive title, additional notes (this can have thousands of characters if you like), a start date, a close date, contact details, and a check box to "only prevent disposition changes".  This check box has been implemented to accommodate a request from customers who wanted to use the hold functionality to suspend the disposal process only, not the modification of the records or their metadata. This is used as part of their internal auditing and review processes, not for legal holds, where you want to prevent any modification of data, except for the tracking and auditing of access and movements of the records.


Once you have created the hold object you can then associate it with individual or groups of selected records and documents. Each hold can be associated with many records and documents and every record or document can be associated with many holds.  Only once all holds have been released from a record or document can you start updating or disposing of it again.


The assignment and removal of holds is logged in the audit trail including the descriptive name of the hold, so that at any time you can see the hold activity for any record.or document. The removal of a hold from an item is only one way to release it; the other way is to declare the hold as closed by entering a close date.  As soon as the close date of a hold is in the past, all records and documents in the hold are released, even though the association between the objects still exists. This latter method maintains the grouping of information by its hold information, which may be desirable for easy retrieval of historical data.


 

How do you manage your Non-Records?

It makes me cringe every time I hear someone say "we don't need to worry about these, they are not records".  People usually refer to information that has been created or used in the line of business, but doesn't fall into their organizations "official" definition of business records.


These non-records cannot just be left alone. They still contain evidence and deserve to be treated with respect. The fact is simply that they are not seen as being of high business value and therefore nobody wants to spend time managing them.


And this is where the combination of an archiving system with a records management system makes sense. In our portfolio we have the Integrated Archive Platform, which allows you to set up rules to capture e-mails and files automatically. The IAP doesn't just apply retention rules to them, but also maintains their evidential value through making them searchable and non-tamperable. 


Through the integration of the IAP and HP TRIM you can still elevate the status of these non-record information to a business record, if and when required. At that point you add descriptive metadata to capture additional information about how the records were used and preserve their integrity and usability as part of a collection in the context of your business activities. If you capture any records right at the point of their creation, they are still stored in the IAP and take advantage of the secure and resilient storage.


The combination of the IAP archiving and the HP TRIM records management technologies allows you to build an uncluttered collection of high value business records, without running the danger that you have out of control non-records floating around your network forever.

Who has US$6M to comply with an e-discovery subpoena?

 


By Patrick Eitenbichler


Some of you may have run across Ralph Losey's blog about a recent e-discovery subpoena that cost OFHEO (Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight) six million dollars just to comply with a subpoena for electronic documents -- even though they weren't party to the litigation.


This precendent is yet another example of the increasing need for proactive e-discovery.  In other words, by implementing a proactive e-discovery solution you can drastically reduce your risk and exposure in litigation AND reduce legal costs at the same time.


Take a look at our latest webinar about best practices for proactive e-discovery with records management -- or other white papers and analyst reports related to e-discovery.

5 ways to improve email management

Today, 85 percent of business communications occur through email, as the average email user sends and receives 76 messages per day.  This tidal wave of email is creating enormous challenges for almost everyone touched by Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Domino messaging environments. If you’re a CIO, CSO, IT VP/Director, Director of Messaging, legal/compliance officer or a GC, then you know that compliance, email security and control, mail server performance optimization, storage TCO reductions, and e-Discovery preparedness are top of mind challenges that you must resolve.

Today, up to 90 percent of companies from small (1-100 users) to very large (10,000+ users) who have deployed the market leading email applications don’t have an archive solution.  Yet 100 percent of these companies face requirements, whether internal or external, that dictate the need to ensure that their intellectual property is secure, controlled, and available when needed.  Since you’re in the 100 percent category, can you ensure that your email messages are captured, protected, accessible, and managed? HP Email Archiving software (for both Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino environments) can help you overcome all of these challenges. It works exclusively with HP Integrated Archive Platform (IAP) to provide long-term retention and high-speed search and retrieval of messages and attachments to reduce the cost and business impact of e-discovery preparation, legal response, and regulatory compliance. This modular appliance approach eliminates the need to purchase separate archiving client software, servers, operating systems, indexing and search software, and content-addressable storage, helping enterprises improve:

Compliance: Many of the 20,000 compliance requirements across the globe require that you enable access to secure email. HP Email Archiving software with HP IAP helps reduce risk of non-compliance with Compliance Archiving (capture all sent and received email—before it becomes a PST), WORM on disk, encryption, and digital fingerprinting—all standard.


Security and control: 75% of corporate intellectual property is contained in email and other messaging applications. HP Email Archiving software with HP IAP enables email to be continuously controlled, secured, and protected with traceable audit trails and simple administration, all transparent to the end user.


Mail server performance: 183 billion email messages are sent daily. HP Email Archiving software with HP IAP lowers storage burden on the mail server, reducing mail server backup volume and speeding the backup and recovery processes.

Storage TCO: HP Email Archiving software with HP IAP reduces mail server storage burden. By reducing the number of users per mail server, server storage costs can be lowered and CAPEX can be deferred on mail server storage and upgrades.  

E-Discovery readiness: Many companies recognize that the cost of a solution enabling email security and e-Discovery readiness is far lower than legal costs associated with either an internal or external audit or legal discovery event. HP Email Archiving software with HP IAP ensures that the #1 culprit in legal discovery cases (email) is securely archived, searchable, and accessible.  By finding secure email quickly and easily, you’ll reduce the demand on IT, lower internal costs, and eliminate the need for expensive outside consultants.
