Archiving gets firms’ back-up

A survey from BridgeHead Software shows that many US firms confuse back-up and archiving, and uncovers a worrying complacency about regulatory compliance.

A survey from BridgeHead Software shows that many US firms confuse back-up and archiving, and uncovers a worrying complacency about regulatory compliance.

Almost a quarter of the respondents say they don’t archive data, while only 15% view compliance or corporate governance as a driver for archiving. Instead they state that disaster recovery is the key behind archiving growth.

“Despite the relentless use of the ‘compliance’ buzzword, it seems that out in the field only a minority of IT directors feel affected by new regulations,” says Patrick Dowling, senior vice-president of corporate marketing for BridgeHead Software.

“One hopes that they believe compliance to be the by-product of good day-to-day data housekeeping.”

The survey finds that manual archiving still dominates and 35% of respondents claim to archive manually using back-up software – the wrong tool for tracking data in files for long periods.
